Tenacious
The car insurance company had the admittance of their client but tried to make believe that since i was in a previous accident i didn't deserve compensation. My attorney didn't except such an answer.the other firm spent a considerable amount of time looking for weak holes and hooed i would give up but Mr. Inkelaar didn't permit them to shake free. That's what you want your counselor to do. The longer you drag onto his time the tighter his grip becomes!

Mrs. Don Blue
He listened to us as we explained our accident and validated our reactions to what had happened. He didn't receive any money until we were paid. I do believe that the problems from the head injury I received were much more severe then he recognized, therefor he did not attempt to get us a larger settlement, which I believed we deserved. His para was also excellent he answered our questions promptly and was always pleasant and understanding. By the way did you know that Don passed away?

John & Pamela Hagen
We are extremely please with Thomas Inkelaar's service. His whole team was very empathetic and comforting while we were going through shock, surgery, and then the healing process. After being confronted with the aggressive approach of the insurance company wanting to settle before the corrective surgery had even taken place; we knew we needed the guidance from an experience Lawyer. Due to a hit and run, on our own we would never have been able to track down the responsible party. We are forever thankful to Thomas and Jim his paralegal; for the excellent service provided by his team.

Lawyer Review
I highly recommend Mr. Inkelaar. He succeeded in my case and saw it through to the end. The process was thorough and the results above satisfactory. Even though it took an extended time due to the number of people involved and long distance, the communication and updates I received inspired confidence. My claim settlement was fair because of the trustworthiness and capiblities of Mr. Inkeelar. If I need any legal assistance in the future, I would definitely consider using his services.

Car accident
August 2018 my wife was in a car accident. At no fault of her own. Inkkler law was hired to help with suit against the driver. We had to pay for a Rental and paid out of pocket for med bills. When the suit done they only got a little over $8000.00. Nothing for the rental. The First person working on the case took all the information and said, they would help. She left im 2019, for what ever reason.. We were out over $1500.00 and saw no return of that money. We would have been better off, with to a different lawyer. When the Suit was started we asked if they could help with the rest of the recovery and were told yes, however we are still out the $1500. I do not recommend this attorney.
