Our Story

In 1985, 13 of the Industry’s Leading Public Adjusting Firms Joined Forces.
  • 1985 The year we began preparing and settling claims.
  • 1996 Advocacy and service to eligible government entities and non-profit organizations.
  • 2016 Expanded offerings to include disaster preparedness and resiliency service.

In 1985, 13 of the industry’s leading public adjusting firms joined forces to bring property insurance policyholders who had suffered loss and damage, a groundbreaking standard of recovery assistance. The new organization — Adjusters International — could put a team of top professionals virtually anywhere at any time, delivering an unprecedented level of expertise, experience, advocacy, and service to help the insured recover from property losses that were frequently disastrous in scope.

Adjusters International has become one of the largest and most respected organizations in its field. With over 40 offices throughout the U.S. and Canada, AI has helped policyholders of all types recover from many of the worst natural and man-made disasters.

In 1996, Adjusters International recognized the need to provide the same level of expertise, advocacy, and service to eligible government entities and non-profit organizations that had suffered a disaster and were seeking recovery under FEMA’s public assistance grants program — guiding them through the complicated application process.

From terrorist attacks to hurricanes, explosions to earthquakes, and fires to floods, Adjusters International is instrumental in putting clients on the road to recovery with both public adjusting services and the disaster recovery grant process.

In 2016 Adjusters International merged with Tidal Basin, the leading experts in preparedness and disaster recovery. Together they provide unmatched experience and resources to organizations, businesses, governments, and communities in helping them prepare, manage, and recover from natural and man-made disasters.

Adjusters International and Tidal Basin are now one organization — peerless in its ability to provide a Total Solution® for disaster preparedness and recovery, whether the need involves government grants or property insurance claims.

Our disaster preparedness and recovery services are provided under the Tidal Basin name.

Our adjusting services continue to be delivered by our licensed regional public adjusting firms, under the Adjusters International umbrella. Many of those firms are family-owned and been operating for decades in their respective markets, providing personalized service and proven expertise in advocating for the best possible financial recovery for their clients.

Adjusters International leadership experience, professionalism, and a deep-seated commitment to customer service are the hallmarks of our industry leadership.

Our People

Gordon Scott Headshot

Being part of the west coast’s largest public adjusting organization comes with great responsibility. The trust our clients put into us as individuals and as a firm is exactly why we do what we do. They trust us, and I trust our company to provide the best advocacy possible.

Gordon Scott, III, SPPA
Paul Migdal Headshot

I believe in changing people's lives and I believe in working for one client, the insured. I became a public adjuster because it appeals to my sense of fair play, of giving aid where aid is needed and of helping those in need.

Paul Martin Migdal, Esq.
Steve Severaid Headshot

I am proud to say I have been a part of restoring people’s lives with integrity, passion, purpose and drive for the past three decades. There is no greater reward than helping others when they are at their lowest and helping them stand tall again.

Steven P. Severaid, SPPA
Jim Warren

After the insured has suffered a devastating loss, our company and adjusters can lift the burden off our client's shoulders. It is a true reward to see the sense of relief on a client’s face when they are a step closer to having their life put back in order.

James “Jim” Warren
Clay Gibson Headshot

I have one focus, the client. It is truly rewarding to assist people in getting what they are entitled in a time of need rather than trying to save an insurance company money. Advocating for people is my passion and I look forward to doing it day after day.
