Testimonials about Michael W. Platts
Boca Raton - Hurricane
"My contacts with Mike were frequent and comprehensive. He not only dealt with my homeowners insurance (Southern Life), but their public adjuster (Totura) and my Condo association (Boca Lakes). I was always consulted as to my wishes and was most appreciative of Mike's wise counsel. He not only was my "adjuster", but also my loss "consultant" and his input was invaluable."
Tiller Foods, Inc. - Fire
"Making a call to Tutwiler and Associates was one of the smartest decisions I made in the whole process. In particular, Mike Platts, our adjuster; came in immediately to study our policy and organize our claim for submission. In a bad situation the outcome was dramatic."
"His professionalism and ability to listen and respond to our personal needs has been gratifying and helpful. His professionalism is a rarer attribute and commendable in this
day and age."
