For nearly 2 decades, Patrick J. Tighe has been going up against and standing up to big insurance companies that don’t honor their promise to do the right thing. In the process, he’s developed a record for getting clients the recoveries insurers didn’t want to give. It’s a task for which few lawyers are as uniquely qualified.
The son of an insurance agent, and a former senior claims adjuster himself, Patrick saw firsthand how the big insurers worked: good claims delayed and even denied; serious injuries not adequately compensated. Too many cases undervalued, and too many people failed. The need to do something about that was what sparked Pat’s legal career.
A graduate of Villanova University and St. John’s University, School of Law, Patrick opened Patrick J. Tighe, P.A., his Florida practice in 2002 and this developed into X1Law P.A. In the time since, he has helped thousands of individuals obtain the recoveries they deserve. Leveraging his prior experience working the ‘other side,’ Pat knows the strategies and tactics big insurers use to stall and hamper claims — and makes sure they don’t work. It’s tangible experience — and perspective — few lawyers can bring to a case.
An active member of his community, Patrick helped start and fund the lacrosse program at Suncoast Community High School, in Palm Beach County, Florida. A former lacrosse player at Villanova, he coached the Suncoast team, too. To those who know him, that’s not surprising. For whether in the courtroom of the playing field, Pat’s aim is simple: to be there for those who need his help. It’s a goal Patrick J. Tighe meets time and time again.
