Tom made me feel completely at ease that he would take care of everything. I was hit by a car while cycling and had a bad concussion with broken bones. Needless to say, it was so nice to have Tom there to take over and give me piece of mind. He was honest and followed thru with what he said. Highly recommend him.

I’m so grateful I found Mr. Sokat after I was in an accident. The insurance company was toying with me and I felt I was getting the short end of the stick. I’m so happy I found Tom and hired him though. 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. I hope I never need to hire him in the future, but if I do, he’ll be my first phone call. Thanks Tom!
