About DJL


David J. Louie, Inc. is a general agency serving producers as well as personal and commercial insurance customers. We are proud to be one of the largest Asian-owned independent insurance agencies in New York.

 

Our History

David J. Louie, Inc. was founded in 1976 with the goal of providing individuals and businesses in the Asian community with expert insurance counseling and prompt, respectful service. In 1992, DJL extended its services to smaller insurance producers who come to us for assistance in fulfilling their clients’ needs.

While we’ve grown and prospered within our original community and beyond, our goal remains the same: to help Asian and non-Asian individuals and businesses protect their assets with comprehensive and cost effective insurance coverage.

 

Our People

DJL is led by Brooklyn-born David J. Louie Sr., a Vietnam veteran and community leader. Today, the agency has grown to an experienced team of over 40 members. To provide the best service DJL is open six days a week, ensuring that our clients talk to people, not a machine. In additional to attentive day-to-day service, we assist with reporting and monitoring claims. Our multilingual staff is fluent in a variety of languages: English, Spanish, Tagalog, Korean, Vietnamese and several Chinese dialects (Mandarin, Cantonese, Taishanese and Fujianese).

DJL’s cultural sensitivity and language capabilities are important in providing expert guidance and support to an extensive range of Asian clients, insurance producers and other professionals. DJL’s experience, excellent carrier relationships and unusually attentive client service are available to any client or producer seeking knowledgeable and responsive insurance placement and support.
