From 1994 through 2013, he was recruited to act as vice president and director of risk management for Maclean Oddy & Associates, Inc. and Robert Hughes Associates, Inc. prior to starting his own company in 2013.
According to Mr. Jolstad, his career highlight has been the diversification of the types of insurance and insurance litigation with which he has experienced, and a second highlight would be starting his own business in 2013. In the coming years, he intends to continue to assist others with their insurance issues, help those in need and support his family and friends.
