About Us

Since the 1920s, the John L. Vorbach Company has been building relationships with businesses and families across the country and around the world, protecting them from the risks they face on a daily basis and providing guidance and support when it’s needed.

We take a unique approach to insurance:

You’ll get more than just a policy. We understand that a big claim can be devastating to a business or family. That’s why we walk you through the insurance process, educate you about current and emerging risks, help you understand how to prevent them, and work with you to make smart decisions about your coverage.

We approach things from your perspective. We make it our job to get to know you, understand your business or your lifestyle and the unique risks you face. If you’re from overseas and just starting a business here in the U.S., you may face more sophisticated risks than you did in your native country. As a successful individual or business owner, you’re also more likely to face a variety of complex risks. That’s why we are serious about making sure you have the coverage you need, when you need it.

You’ll never hear, “I think that’s covered.” We believe your protection is too important for guesswork. That’s why we help you set up the right protection from the start, and give you accurate, definitive answers to your questions — not “probably” or “maybe.”

We hold ourselves to the highest standards
