Top Shelf All the Way
My wife and I were victims of a tail-end collision in May, 2021, resulting in us both being sent to emergency via ambulance. After being deluged with a bewildering avalanche of correspondence from attorneys, including a book and video about why we should retain their respective firms, we decided to retain the the services of Roni Sokol. She was professional, honest, straightforward and realistic about our need to retain legal help and about our chance of securing additional help through the "underinsured" clause in our own policy. She handled all legal matters regarding our medical claims quickly and efficiently and presented all options to us before agreeing to any conditions. Our interaction with her was more than satisfactory, it was excellent. I highly recommend her and will hire her if matters present themselves again in the future.

I hired Roni Sokol without any regrets. Amazing!
When I contacted Roni about my problem, she had started on my case immediately. When I needed information, she answered my call or messages right away. My wife and I were impressed with her professionalism. She understood my situation and the law as it should be. She was absolutely prepared to deal with the other party.

Professional, excellent advocate, great settlement!
Roni Sokol did a fabulous job. She explained the whole process very clearly. She gathered all the details of my case in a methodical fashion. She communicated with me regularly and always explained what she was doing and what options I had. She presented a VERY strong position in my case and then negotiated for the best possible settlement. I am thrilled with her work and would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance

My father's body was accidentally cremated prior to our funeral. Roni was amazing, sensitive, responsive and attentive in such a delicate situation. She was able to get me a settlement in a situation that was very emotion. I would definitely recommend her!

Amazing lawyer and angel in disguise
When I heard public defender, my stomach turned. Thinking about the old guy that would be representing me for free made me very nervous inside! I waited patiently for the phone call from my attorney and to my surprise this sweet voice came across my phone. I was elated to find out that a woman would be representing me, and not just any woman but Ms. Sokol! From the first conversation I just knew I was in not good but great hands. She is kind, understanding, professional, knowledgeable and just amazing! I beat myself up about my situation for weeks and she always made me feel better with just one phone call. I had such a pleasant experience with her as my attorney and I will be keeping her in my back pocket. I don’t intend on needing her again, but if I do I know I will have the best representation coming from her! Thank you so much Ms. Sokol❤️

From the initial consultation I was very impressed because while on the phone she listened and explained the whole process and knew the laws. I always got to speak to her directly and her communication and updates in my case was excellent. I was made aware of all steps proceeding with my case. Hardworking and dedicated to being the voice representing me (During Covid). Great news is that she won my case! I would highly recommend her to anyone because she down to earth but highly professional.

An Outstanding Experience from Start to Finish
I was recommended to use Roni by another attorney following t the rear-end collision in which I had been involved. Roni was able to meet with me promptly and walk me through what to expect during the process. I felt really supported by Roni as she helped me navigate through the sometimes complex litigation process. In the end, I was awarded a settlement that was more than satisfactory and more than I anticipated. I feel that this is directly as a result of Roni's efforts and advocacy. I would absolutely recommend Roni to anyone needing assistance with a personal injury or litigation concern. Thank you Roni!

A respected lawyer, an elegant writer & emotional intelligence perfect for an attorney.
Our family hired the services of Ms. Sokol to handle a community legal issue. I will tell you that I was impressed with her professionalism, knowledge of the law in our case just through our first meeting and instant knowledge of our personal legal rights. She did not waste our time and money in having to do unnecessary research because of her expert knowledge. We were treated with respect and validated during the process. Her precise and prestige writing talents were far above I have seen in a long time. We would highly recommend Roni Sokol for legal services.
