For one week every month, our staff goes casual for a cause! By donating to our office breast cancer fund, employees earn the right to wear jeans into the office. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we decided to step it up by wearing pink to raise awareness and setting a fundraising goal of $500.

Pinnacle Insurance Group is always there to help and sometimes just listen. You see they are not just for insurance, they're part of my family. Just ask my wife and daughters where they get their insurance. Client since 1992.

The Smith Agency isn't interested in making short term profits on your account, but in developing a long term relationship with you. I have been extremely satisfied with the performance of the staff of the Smith Agency during my association with them.

Thank you for your amazing response to our claim situation. You and your team made a bad situation a little better. Kudos to the adjuster Derek Cooley that came out to view the damage. He was very professional, informative and compassionate. Everyone involved worked as a wonderful team to help us minimize our lose starting with our agent Mark Bates at Pinnacle Insurance Group to AmeriClean of Merrillville and their crew, and last but not least to your Company and crew. Sincerely grateful, John Jacques and Marie DiCianni Jacques

We want to thank you again for listening to our dilemma on Saturday, recognizing that we were under some serious time restraints, and for sending out the email and following up with it so the adjuster was at our house on Monday, and we were given the OK to go ahead with repairs immediately. All of this made an upsetting situation a manageable one...Thank you again.
