“Persistence, Determination, Fairness to all parties” – “Saved plaintiff significant litigation expenses”
William T. Wood, Esquire
Wood Law Offices

“Judge Platt helped me resolve a serious injury case yesterday involving a slip and fall on ice. The case ultimately settled for just over a million dollars. Judge Platt was well prepared, insightful and did an excellent job getting the case settled. My client was very impressed with Judge Platt and she trusted his recommendations based on his many years on the bench and in private practice. I would put Judge Platt’s abilities right up there with Judge Chasanow. Further he is usually available within a month period.”
Robert L. Weinberg, Esquire

Please know how much we appreciate your assistance and service to us and the County.”
Honorable Cheye M. Calvo

“As a personal observation, I would like to extend my appreciation for your efforts in resolving the recent case…I am sure you recognized the numerous legal issues and the factual circumstances that made this case difficult to settle. I am also certain that without your efforts this case would not have been resolved. Although the legal system is much maligned these days, I happen to believe that this case represents the strength of the system.”
