"In January of 2009 a jury returned a verdict against Cumis Insurance Society in favor of
Michigan First Credit Union for over five million dollars.  The jury agreed that Cumis breached
its insurance contract and should have paid our credit union’s faithful performance claim.  With
interest and penalties under Michigan’s Unfair Trade Practices Act, the final judgment was over
7.9 million dollars.  Chuck Holzman and Patty Corkery were instrumental in the initial
investigation of the claim and all the way through trial. They brought all the right people to the
table to ensure victory.  I strongly recommend their law firm to any credit union facing adversity
with a bond carrier or other insurance provider.  Bond carriers and insurance companies take
their involvement in any claim very seriously."

Michael Poulos, President/CEO, Michigan First Credit Union
“I feel strongly the settlement was resolved because of the excellent job done by Patty Corkery and
her law firm.  She was remarkable in the preparation of the proof of loss.  I know this is a “job”
for Patty but I also know she took a personal interest in this case and I want to thank her for her
outstanding efforts.”

John Deese, PBC Credit Union, Florida   
"Our credit union retained Patty Corkery of Holzman Corkery in light of her national reputation
representing credit unions in bond claim disputes.  Ms. Corkery has been instrumental in
resolving two disputes for our credit union.  In the first dispute, she was able to settle our bond
claim involving employee dishonesty and vehicle loans.  She worked with the bond carrier
investigator to establish coverage and payment on the claim.  In the other dispute, Ms. Corkery
initiated a lawsuit against our bond carrier after a faithful performance claim, where the credit
union suffered substantial losses, had been denied.  The Miami federal court ruled in the credit
union’s favor and Ms. Corkery obtained payment in full on our judgment.  Ms. Corkery’s
complete attention to our case and her ability to fit right in to our management team working
through these issues was the foundation for the successful outcome.  Her litigation skills are
beyond reproach and we strongly recommend her in any litigation context.”

George Joseph, President/CEO Dade County Federal Credit Union, Miami, Florida
