“As the New Jersey State Bar’s partner on their Lawyers’ Professional Liability Insurance Program, we’re always looking for ways to improve the offering,” said Mike Mooney, Vice President of Bar Association Programs for USI Affinity. “Back in September we announced the addition of a 5% credit for NJSBA members on their LPL premium through the program, which has been very well received. These latest enhancements are excellent additions to our very strong coverage for New Jersey law firms, so we look forward to continuing to grow the program.”
