We want to be your trusted insurance advisor. Because we’re independent, we recommend the best insurance solutions from a wide range of top quality carriers. We find comprehensive coverage at competitive prices, and we tailor a high quality insurance package specific to your business needs.
Business Property and Liability
Business Property and Liability are often packaged together in a Business Owners Policy, also known as a “BOP.” Business Property insurance protects the assets of your business, such as your office space, property and equipment. Business Liability insurance protects you from claims that your business caused injury or property damage to someone else. Today, BOP policies are often more economical than separate policies and can be tailored to fit the unique needs of your business or industry.
Most states require a business with one or more employees to have the protection of Workers Compensation insurance. Workers Comp provides benefits to employees that pay for the cost of treating work-related illness or injury, lost wages and vocational training. Most policies also include Employers Liability Coverage, which protects employers from lawsuits involving work-related accidents or diseases.
Professional Liability Coverage, also called Malpractice Insurance or Errors and Omissions, protects you from claims brought by clients or patients. Dyste Williams has extensive experience with a broad range of professionals and professional business owners. We specialize in the insurance needs of medical, dental and oral surgery practices. We also serve many other professionals such as accountants, lawyers, architects and consultants.
New Business Owners
Starting a new business is a busy time filled with many decisions and expenses. Dyste Williams can simplify the process of obtaining necessary insurance coverage.

Company-owned vehicles like cars, vans and trucks, as well as personal vehicles used for business need specific business coverage. For example, if your employees use their own vehicles to run errands for the business, we can help you obtain commercial auto coverage. Personal auto insurance policies are often not enough protection on vehicles used for business.
An Umbrella Policy protects your business from a catastrophic lawsuit by adding protection above and beyond what is provided by your core liability coverage.

Dyste Williams is very knowledgeable about my insurance needs. I’ve had both my practice and personal insurance with the agency for over 30 years. I meet with Ted or Roberta annually to review my insurance. Our business insurance needs are complex. There’s a lot going on in my practice, so insurance is not a boilerplate process. They recommend changes and explain things very well. When an insurance company cancelled one of the coverages on my policy, Dyste Williams did a good job of shopping around to find a better solution. I like the convenience of having my business and personal insurance together in one place. I think they work a little harder when things come up. Most of time I talk with Roberta, and she’s very good at knowing the answer or getting the answer very quickly. I’ve never had a business claim, but I’m confident if I did, Dyste Williams would handle it very well.
