  • Francis G. X. Pileggi

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Rick is widely respected as the "go to" lawyer in Delaware for serious injury and wrongful death cases. If I had an important case, I would want Rick to be my lawyer. Rick was the former president of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association and a state legislator for many years. He has always fought hard for victims and he gets excellent results.
