"He Made Me Feel like a Human Being, Not Just Another Client"

Rick is a great lawyer. As a client I could tell he actually cared about my son, husband, and I. He always made sure he called me to give me updates about the specialists involved and always let me know how the depositions went. I was never left in the dark. Our case was very complicated and he never gave up.

I would definitely hire Rick again if I ever had a case he could help me out with.

They meet with me in a Sunday because they knew the severity of the case. They were open and honest with me from the very beginning, never left me out of the loop...

Even during the deposition Rick made sure I was comfortable with everything going on. He asked for breaks before I broke down during the deposition. If it wasn’t for Rick and his team I wouldn’t be here today. He made me feel like a human being, not just another client. Very professional staff.
