Best In getting you what’s deserved…
Jocelyn was recommended from my friend at the time of my accident and I was not looking forward to find one when I got into my accident. She went the call of duty and made sure my injury were taking care off , and guided me from The Dr to physical therapy, and never one to be in accident and more what comes next . Thanks to her my car and body are all doing great and more the pay they got for me was not what I evened imagine, I was happy being healthy and car fix !! But when she told me what she got me I almost fainted in surprise never thought how hard she worked to get me a fair deal, and boy did she ever and if in the future this would happen again I know who to call but always pray I don’t and pray for all drivers. But if you do I recommend her 1000% you won t go wrong and will recommend her to all my peeps aka friends to hire Jocelyn in a heart beat . Thanks for all you did and can’t say thank you enough and forever you will be on my important contacts on my speed dial. Love you all and thanks again..

The best
The whole process was seamless. I called and was put in contact with Victoria. She handled everything from beginning to end. All my questions and concerns were answered in a very timely fashion, and she kept me up-to-date on everything that was going on with the case. Cloud not recommend this firm in more, specifically Victoria. Thank you so much for all your help

Power House of an Attorney
Jocelyn was with out a doubt nothing short of an all-star. I was at a low point in my life and had gotten into some pretty serious trouble with the law, while I was getting out of the military. I was back from deployment in a tough state of mind and made a mistake. A mistake that I thought was going to cost me everything I had worked for in my years of service. Jocelyn not only picked up my case immediately but was quick to help save my career. I had honestly thought there was no way this would have ended well for me, but she fought hard to keep my record clean and was nothing short of amazing in court. I was able to save my honorable discharge and transition back to civilian life with a clean slate. I truly believe owe her more than just paying the extremely affordable bill she sent me and still to this day am thankful and honored that she represented me. I didn't know Jocelyn at all before all of this happened, and this is a true testament to her dedication to her clients to help a complete stranger out in this way. Highly recommend Criminal Defense attorney.

AMAZING ATTORNEY!
Jocelyn is an incredibly talented attorney and I am so glad she represented my daughter for an accident and my wife and me for a different accident. She was thorough in explaining what to expect and effectively communicated the progress for each case. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results, which was far more than what the insurance company offered. If you are looking for an attorney who is professional, respectful, tenacious, compassionate, and a great listener, you need to call Jocelyn. You will not need to continue looking for representation once you call her office!

SHE MAKES IT EASY
From the day I first met Jocelyn I knew I had chosen the right attorney. From signing paperwork to having conversations, it could not have been more thorough and easy on my end. She will make sure you get compensated justly and will not take no for an answer. She is so professional and she definitely has the awards to back up her work. She keeps you updated and always prepares you for what’s to come. Nothing but Awesome 5 stars ++++++

Amazing Lawyer!!
My husband and I were in an auto accident. This was our first time seeking legal guidance due to the nature of the accident. We were in a very emotional state and consulted with Jocelyn at Sicat Law. Jocelyn listened and made us feel at ease. She took the weight off our shoulders when she told us she would represent us. Not only were we dealing with this auto accident but a family emergency as well as the shelter-in-place restrictions. Jocelyn was very patient with us, she continued to keep us informed of our case every step of the way. We had a great experience with Sicat Law and are extremely grateful for making this process stress-free! Jocelyn you are AMAZING! Thank you!

AMAZING ! Love her !
My experience was positive from start to finish. The first time I spoke with Jocelyn at Sicat Law, I could see that she was extremely knowledgeable yet compassionate and personable. She put me at ease instantly about my situation and throughout the process was available and approachable. My outcome was better than I had hoped for and I'm extremely grateful to Jocelyn and the rest of the Sicat Law team for their hard work and fantastic customer service. I can't recommended them enough!

Highly recommend!
I needed a lawyer recently and got referred to Sicat Law. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer than Jocelyn. She was always available to answer my questions, even on the weekends. If she wasn't available right away, she got back to me in a very reasonable amount of time or had one of her assistants get back to me to answer my questions. what impressed me the most about Jocelyn is just who she is as a person. From the first minute I spoke with her, she didn't pass any judgement onto me. She listened to my side of the story and truly believed that I had a strong case, and she did everything she could to resolve it. This was a very overwhelming time for me but after she took my case, I got a sudden relief. A lawyer is not an easy thing to find, you have to find one that you're comfortable with, and I feel very comfortable with Jocelyn, and would not only recommend her to anyone in need of legal services, but would go back to her in a heartbeat.

Personal injury
I’m so glad I was referred to Jocelyn Sicat after experiencing my first car accident. During a time that I was experiencing horrible stress & body pain Jocelyn and her team made the whole process so easy for me and made sure I got the attention and care I needed. I’m so grateful to have been represented by the best team out there! I will always refer family members and friends to Jocelyn Sicat because I trust they’ll be in good hands & I know she always goes above and beyond for her clients.

Do yourself a favor and hire this lawyer!!
Almost exactly a year ago I was in a bad car accident. I was rear ended and had both front and rear cameras on my car to show the accident was not my fault. Enter Jocelyn Sicat! She asked me for two things, my patience and my trust. After talking through my case with her, she easily earned both of those things. Jocelyn is present, attentive, thorough, honest, and goes so far above and beyond what I could have expected. I appreciated that I always knew when we were making progress and that Jocelyn often started by saying, "Your worst case scenario is _____, but you know I never try to settle for your worst case scenario." As a result of that, Jocelyn settled my case for almost 2x my "worst case scenario," which is so far above and beyond anything I could have asked for! I cannot recommend Attorney Jocelyn Sicat enough! Do yourself, your friends, and your family the favor of hiring her!!
