Meet Juliana Perazzo-Marius of Gusta Insurance in North Dallas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Juliana Perazzo-Marius.

Juliana, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Everything started when I began working as a paralegal in a personal injury law firm for nine years. I worked on pre-demand and trial cases mainly for plaintiffs injured in personal auto and commercial vehicles. I usually examined several personal and commercial policies on a daily basis and began to realize that at least 90% of our clients had no understanding of insurance or had the proper coverage to protect their families and assets. No matter what was their social class, many of these clients shared the same statement: “My insurance agent said that I am fully covered.” Having the minimal requirement of your state law doesn’t mean that you are fully covered. Many of our clients were women and they were more eager to learn about insurance.

Even though I was not an insurance agent at the time, I noticed that many insurance professionals in the industry don’t take the time to explain to their clients what types of coverage would cover them in case that a situation arises. I always had to go out of my way to teach clients about the importance of having knowledge of what type of insurance coverage they are buying and how they can protect themselves. This is in case of liabilities or other specific situations that their insurance would take effect. Everyone should understand that if you don’t have the proper insurance coverage; your financial livelihood and/or your business may be ruined following an unfortunate mistake.

Working for many years in the law and insurance industry, I have seen that many of these individuals with auto or commercial insurance are underinsured or uninsured and face challenges upon emerging liabilities. My goal is to give clients peace of mind and enjoy full protection with the right insurance product.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
When I decided to leave the legal industry, I faced many challenges. I first became a business owner in another industry. It was during crucial challenges that I have learned the insurance industry more in-depth. During these many years, I faced numerous obstacles, which would have been much worse if I have not done my homework to find the best insurance policy to fit my business. Now I know what it takes to protect myself and my business from liabilities that can emerge at any time from every single direction. Unfortunately, many business owners still don’t have the knowledge of the many liabilities they may encounter if they don’t choose the right insurance policy for their businesses.
