About Us

Protecting Futures

 Established in 1935 The Aleckson Insurance Agency is a Boutique insurance Brokerage that has the experience, resources, and technology of the “Big Broker” without the bureaucracy.  We have the industry relationships that allow us to provide our service efficiently and we leverage those relationships to the benefit of our customers. 

Assessing Need

Many financial experts will tell you some unforeseen events and a lack of the right kind of insurance can spell trouble quickly. When a claim occurs they will look back to the policy to see if you are covered. Why not work with an agency that will conduct a legal evaluation of your contracts and build an insurance policy to respond. Call us today, and we'll analyze your insurance needs and custom tailor solutions that match your structure.


Building Relationships

Relationships with our customers, of course, but our customers benefit from our strong industry relationships going back 83 years.  Getting underwriters to trust an agency takes time and results. We nurture these relationships allowing us to get more done for our customers.
