Why would you even think about hiring me as your personal injury attorney?
Because you’re up against big odds and a formidable opponent. You need a champion.
Every personal injury case pits a David (the injured) against a Goliath. That Goliath can be a big corporation that was negligent in their design of a product, a landowner who failed to maintain their property and keep it clear of hazards, or an insurance company that seeks its own financial interests.
With deep pockets and seemingly endless resources, those Goliaths are in it to win. Taking on these behemoths alone would leave you vulnerable to injustice and add insult to injury. You need an advocate to stand with you. You need someone who knows the law, and knows how to use the law to outwit Goliath.
That’s me and this is what I love about being a personal injury attorney. Every day I’m lucky enough to work with a little David and against big odds go up against the Goliaths in our courts of law and win.
Don’t get discouraged. The little guy really can win the battle against a giant. Here’s how.
1. You don’t have to go it alone. I’ll level the playing field.
The defendant, whether it’s the giant insurance company or an impersonal corporation, stands to lose a lot. To assure a win, they put a lot of money behind their legal team, and if you had to stand alone against them, your chances are slim.
“When you need expert advice and someone to guide you thru the process, the peace of mind you receive is priceless. Had I not had Tom’s help it would have been disastrous for me.” – Lee Nichols
Bringing in your own expert personal injury attorney, though, levels the playing field. I have 30 years of experience in the field of personal injury law. I know every game insurance companies play. I come prepared and know where to strike – just like David did with his 3 stones.
In addition, I take on only the number of cases I can personally handle at one time for good reason. While large firms routinely turn over cases to aides and interns, that’s not the case with me. Nothing will get lost in translation with the passing of information from one to another. Neither will important evidence be missed by inexperienced legal assistants.
I am the only one on your case. You will always talk directly to me, and you can rest assured that you have an expert with you every step of the way. Goliath ain’t no dummy. You need an expert on your team.
2. They have deep pockets for their expensive legal teams. So do you because there is absolutely no fee until we win.
On their own against a behemoth with an expensive legal team, the little guy might fail, but because personal injury attorneys work on a contingency and there is never a fee until we win, you can afford an experienced legal expert and advocate of your own to stand up for you in court.
And what if we don’t win? When I agree to take on your case, I take the risk to see this through to settlement through mediation or court. If we don’t win, you pay nothing.
3. I fight for everyone’s rights. That makes me really motivated to win.
“Tom Sokat was great to work with! My auto accident case was complicated but he was on top of it at all times..and he used all of his experience & knowledge to get a fair settlement from the Insurance company. I highly recommend his services!” – Lisa Cardoza
I became a personal injury lawyer because I have a strong desire to see the little guy get the justice that is due him after being injured. I fight for the person who cannot fight for themselves. As a father, friend, community member, I want to see wrongs addressed and our children grow up in a safer, more just world. Each case I win is a step toward this vision.
I never forget that when I’m fighting for my clients, I’m fighting for everyone. Even though this is my job and I’ve been doing it for over 30 years, it never gets any easier to hear my clients’ stories, and I never lose my passion for righting the wrongs that brought someone into my office in the first place – for them, for my children and for you and me.
What better job than to get to be a David and slay the giant each and every day. That desire pushes me to right wrongs and really fight for the compensation my clients deserve.
