Principal & Executive General Adjuster

Professional Profile

As a licensed public adjuster and a specialist in property, business income, and extra expense claims recoveries, Luis Esteves is the Principal and Executive General Adjuster for Jansen/Adjusters International. Luis handles between $500 million to 1 billion dollars in losses annually. He has more than 20 years of experience 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 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. 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 hurricanes 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. In addition, he is passionate about empowering commercial, governmental, and residential policyholders to recover everything they are owed under their purchased policies.

Luis is a member of the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) and the Texas Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (TAPIA). He is a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology and an experienced and sought-after speaker. Luis 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.”
