What is a Public Adjuster?
A Public Adjuster is a person 18 or older licensed by the State whose job is to help homeowners and business owners by fighting against their insurance company and recovering the money they deserve. Excellent results can be achieved if the policyholder is represented by a professional that acts only in benefit of the insured. A good Public Adjuster should analyze and evaluate every Insurance policy confirming appropriate coverages and deductibles before reporting the damage to the insurance company protecting the interests of the Policy Holder. Currently, 44 states (and the District of Columbia) have in place some form of statutory and/or regulatory scheme which licenses public adjusters. The states that do not are: Alaska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Thus, here in the State of Florida Public Adjusters are regulated by the government.
Holding a license in one state only permits the licensed to practice in that state.
How is a Public Adjuster Compensated?
A Public Adjuster is a person that in exchange of a commission aids a Policyholder at the time of property damage against their insurance company, investigating and adjusting the loss. In the State of Florida all Public Adjusters are capped at 20% of the total amount of the settlement but in an State of Emergency, the fee is reduced to 10% instead.

Plantation Florida Factoid
The Florida city of Plantation is located in central Broward County. The city lies 8 miles west of Fort Lauderdale, and is also bordered by Lauderhill (to the northeast), Sunrise (to the northwest) and Davie (to the south). The city of Miami is located about 33 miles south of Plantation.
Until the 1940s, Broward County was still relatively uninhabited. In 1941, Frederick C. Peters, a potato farmer and cattle baron, bought 10,000 acres of cheap, undeveloped land at $25 an acre from a large tract which was previously owned by the Everglades Plantation Company (which explains the origin of the city’s name). By 1949, a community had formed with 40 homes in the area and in 1953 this community was formally incorporated as the city of Plantation. Ensuing decades saw periods of both steady and explosive growth to the city.
