Sloat & Nicholson, P.C. is characterized by professionalism, compassion and thorough knowledge of personal injury law. This firm has very successfully settled three (3) of my family's personal injury cases over the past few years and we couldn't be more pleased or satisfied.
In each and every case, my family's experiences with this firm were nothing but positive. From the administrative staff and office support, to the paralegals, to the attorneys, themselves, this firm of true professionals goes far above and beyond most other law firms.
They offered extremely personalized attention and they listened to each and every concern we may have had, offering thoroughly knowledgeable, reassuring opinions and advice. Their compassion and genuine concern for their clients' unique situations were very clear to us - we felt it, it was palpable. We never felt as though we were in an intimidating, impersonal or 'stiff' law firm that was concerned only about the numbers of cases they could push through; we felt like we were among caring family.
They communicated effectively with us and in a timely manner, typically returning our calls and/or emails in the same day - often within hours - and even AFTER hours (well into the early evening). And the attorneys, themselves (Gerry and/or Randy), were typically the ones to personally respond/return calls.
Their strategies, projected timeframes and realistic expectations for each case were made clear to us from the start. Stress was minimized throughout the process, right up until the last moment when each case was successfully settled for the highest, most agreeable amount and in our favor.
What more could one ask for?
For these reasons and more, we refer family, friends and colleagues ONLY to Sloat & Nicholson, P.C. for personal injury matters.

Gerald Sloat represented me in an MVA in which I was seriously injured. He is a knowledgeable, experienced, successful attorney. More importantly, he is a compassionate, honest human being, which is essential when it feels as though your life is falling apart. I highly recommend him and his firm.

From the first time I met Gerry Sloat to the successful conclusion of my case, I had nothing but confidence in the the legal skills and personal strengths of the attorneys and staff of this extraordinary law firm.
The attorneys I worked with, Gerry, Bob Hoover, and Randy Nicholson, handled the twists and turns of negotiations with obstinate insurance companies with tact and diplomacy. They gave me a clear understanding of what was going on, without overwhelming me with details I was confident they were always on top of. Every member of the staff was exceptionally warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and patient, and just a pleasure to work with, turning a potentially frustrating and intimidating experience into one that instead proved painless, and even interesting and illuminating.
In short, I give Sloat Law my highest recommendation.
