He and the entire team are patient and professional with the numerous questions and requests we regularly have for them.  We are extremely grateful to have such an amazing team ensuring we have the best possible coverage.

"Friendship Shelter is fortunate in the worker safety arena - we don’t get injured very often. When something does happen, though, it’s a little bit of a scramble. In mid-2017 our maintenance manager was cut on the job operating a circular saw. I got the call and the question – where do I go? “Circular saw”creates a serious mental picture. I called Sam Brown at Rancho Mesa who responded in moments with the Kaiser On-the-Job location nearest  our employee and treatment was rendered soon thereafter. In the end, there was no loss of limb or even lost time, but Rancho Mesa treated it like it was a major incident. That’s the kind of treatment we get no matter what the issue and why we love Rancho Mesa."

“Sam Brown elevated the appeal to the highest level when the state workers’ comp board wanted to change our workers’ comp class codes. He researched similar organizations, class definitions, and job duties to make the best possible argument in our favor. I’m certain he will never back down when advocating for Providence. Sam Brown’s careful attention to detail saves us money. The most recent example is an $18,000 error on our Workers’ Compensation audit. Thank you, Sam!”

"Through his never-ending persistence, Sam Brown was the only broker that came through with the perfect fit for our workers' compensation needs. He helped us prepare for an OSHA audit and wrote a letter to our carrier explaining our unique situation, which saved us $10,000. I would highly recommend starting with Rancho Mesa and Sam Brown whenever looking for your insurance needs; you won’t be disappointed."
