Meet Your Public's Adjuster Team

President & Public Adjuster

your-team-todd-molerTodd majored in Architecture at the State University of New York, went on to start a design/build contracting company for 15 years which led him to specialize in antique home restoration. He is now the owner of The Public’s Adjuster LLC. After 16 years working inside the insurance industry as a High Value Property Adjuster for Royal & Sun Alliance, Liberty Mutual, and for MiddleOak/Middlesex, Todd came to the realization that while adjusters such as himself represented the interests of the insurance company in the case of a claim, the individuals filing the claim often had no one looking out for their interests. Todd is a member of CAPIA (Connecticut Association of Public Insurance Adjusters).

The mission of The Public’s Adjuster LLC is to support and represent the interests of individuals filing insurance claims, to help them receive a fair and accurate settlement.

When Todd isn’t adjusting claims you’ll usually find him riding his bicycle, hiking or woodworking.
