<insert case name>
Case No. <Case number>
This is to bring to your kind notice that on <date you were served>, I was served with a Summons and Complaint in the
above-referenced matter. I am enclosing copies of these documents for your review. As you
will see from a review of the documents, this matter stems from <incident or situation which prompted the
lawsuit>. It is my understanding
that my <type of policy> policy of insurance should cover such an
incident, and therefore, <company name> is obligated to defend me in this matter.
Accordingly, I hereby tender my defense in the above-referenced matter to <company name>.
I request you to select my own attorney or if you will be appointing one to my case. I
shall look forward to hearing from you on this matter at the earliest.
