Professional Profile

As a specialist in property, business income and extra expense claims recoveries and a licensed public adjuster, Luis Esteves is the Principal and an Executive General Adjuster for Jansen/Adjusters International. Luis handles between $500 million to $1 billion dollars in losses annually, and has more than 20 years of experience with adjusting complex claims for large commercial real estate companies, manufacturing facilities, entertainment venues, multi-family properties, school districts and hospitals. As an expert on property loss adjustment who is retained by policyholders to assist in preparing, filing and adjusting first party property insurance claims, he works exclusively for his policyholder clients to maximize their financial recovery after devastating fires, floods, hurricanes and other natural and man-made disasters.

With an extensive background in construction, Luis oversees the larger complex losses where construction methodology and engineering knowledge are crucial to the correct settlement of the claim. By using his expertise in site inspection, property damage analysis, business interruption calculation and hidden coverage identification, he strives to uncover the full—and sometimes hidden—potential of every client’s insurance policy. Luis has been at the forefront of many hurricane and catastrophic recovery efforts, lending his expertise to clients – such as casinos, racetracks, hospitals and school systems – in the aftermath of the nation’s most devastating storms. He is passionate about empowering commercial, governmental and residential policyholders to recover everything that they are owed under their purchased policies.

Luis, who is a member of the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters and is a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, is also an experienced and sought-after speaker who has served as an expert witness in property insurance litigation and has been invited to speak at several educational seminars and conferences.

Luis has been featured as an expert panelist on Adjusters International’s Property Insurance Roundtable podcast in the episode titled, “Disasters Raising Questions of Insurance Adequacy.”
