I was first introduced to Mr. Troutman through another lawyer who happened to hear about my troubles when I was talking with my waitress friend about how my son's case was going to be closed forever. This lawyer suggested me to go talk with Mr. Troutman. I went home and called, he said come to his office immediately.
I went to the office with all my son's files. I had the files for less than a month at this point. I had researched and tried to get the case extended but the judged had turned me down. I obviously did not understand the legal system. When I walked into Mr. Trountman's office, he understood that I had a knowledge of this case and I had a passion for justice for my young son.
Rick's firm had less than 48 hours to prepare something for the upcoming date of dismissal of the case. Rick had me sign paper's but said he could not promise anything but he would do his best to get justice for my son.
Rick's firm represented me in the judges chambers. Thankfully that judged granted a continuous, because I had legal representation. My son's case would have been closed that day if Rick did not take this case. I was so thankful just to have some one who believed in the case. I could not believe that my son had a lawyer that believed in his case and was willing to represent him.
During this time my older son was on a traveling soccer team. The team needed some equipment, I approached Rick and ask him if he wanted to get some advertising. He said he would help but not to worry about advertising. He donated enough for the team to get a large shade tent and supplies.
I remember when the case was in the court system, I would call the office to talk to the lawyer who was handling the case. I would actually talk with the lawyer and if he was unavailable Rick would get on the phone and talk with me. I found myself apologizing to Rick and he would say "no, don't apologize that's what I am here for." This client/attorney relationship started to feel more like a friendship. Rick would ask my how my son was doing in school. He was concerned how he was communicating with his family. I knew Rick truly cared about the welfare and the future of my son.
My son's school had a yearly planner that all the student's received. This particular year it was going to be difficult for the school to purchase the planners. I went to Rick and ask if he wanted to help. He was more than happy to. We had a character qualities program at the school. Rick decided to put his Law firm's name under the character qualities in small print. He focused on the character qualities not his Law firms name. This is a man of true integrity. He would rather focus on good character qualities than his Law Firm's name.
My son's case did get settled and he will receive compensation for the medical mistakes that were made. I will never forget that day Rick said he wished it was more but I said if it was not for you it would be nothing! Because of Rick my son will have an easier life. Rick took less than what we agreed on. PLUS he gave a large portion of his share to the lawyer that referred me to him. ALSO he reimbursed all the monies the other law firm (the firm that almost had my son's case dismissed) had invested in. Rick is my son's HERO!
Believe it or not! Unfortunately, I had a car accident a few years later. I called Rick and he took care of me. He truly cared about my health and getting me back to as normal as possible. He told me not to worry about anything that he would take care of all the details and HE DID. I had therapy, messages,medicine, evaluations, and x-rays, everything was documented. After all my medical care,the case was settled, AGAIN Rick took less monies than what we had agreed on, so that I would have some monies left for my pain and suffering. This man is truly a person who has found his calling and I feel so fortunate that I can call him a friend and feel so lucky I know who to call if I need help.
Every time I called Mr. Trautman's cell he answered right away, he is one of a kind lawyer, kept me updated day by day.
Mr. Troutman is an exceptional attorney who listens, connects with clients, and provides the kind of legal advice and counsel a person looks for and need when life happens. When in legal need, Richard Troutman is the person I call to help ease my mind when unexpected legal needs arise. Another plus for Mr. Troutman is his servant's heart and community advocacy. There are many attorneys one can choose when needing legal advice or service, for me and my family, we choose Attorney Richard B. Troutman. You should do the same!
If you need a caring individual with a strong experienced office, then Rick is the one you want in your corner!!! The man came to the hospital and the retirement home to ensure I was receiving proper medical attention, I was at either place for over 30 days(each) and I only saw one lawyer at the hospital once and none at the home, Rick came many times and with his help we found a nurse to assist through-out. Rick and his staff are really good at their jobs and very nice people. His office came highly recommended from more than one source and rightfully so...he stayed with the case and I felt he took care,in how he helped me at that time and in the future. I was well represented and have no regrets with the outcome, that was 6 or 7 years ago, I wake every other day thinking how my case could have gone the other way, I am grateful we chose Richard Troutman! Thanks to him and his staff will never be strong enough for what he and his staff have done! If you have been in a accident, consider his team, they changed my life and maybe they could change yours! Good luck.
Richard Troutman is a man that acts in equity and fairness. In a legal world that is many times upside down Richard has proven to me time and time again that people can get not only excellent representation but also someone who cares about the end result as much as they do.
I have personally benefited from Richard's legal advice and representation and recall his personal engagement in my needs as exceptional. The wise counsel and directives he offered were refreshing relative to past experiences with Lawyers. Richard stepped into my only lawsuit in 27 years of operating a business. He brought me through a very tough experience, in my opinion he did for me in 3 months what 2 previous lawyers failed to achieve in 2 years. I would heartily recommend Richard Troutman.
Mr. Troutman is an excellent attorney. He provided excellent information concerning fees, legal procedures, and time factors generally required for this type of case. He compiled complete and accurate accident data, produced a film reinacting bicycle/auto accident, and worked with the insurance company, all the while keeping me updated and confident in his work. Final case settlement was excellent and no loose ends left.
His attention to detail and timely paper work kept me comfortable throughout the entire casetime. Concern for me and my wife was evident from the start and we were most thankful for that.
When working with Mr. Troutman's staff it became apparent that he is an excellent manager also.
I have worked with many attorneys and would most certainly rate Mr. Troutman as one of the very
I would definitely use and recommend to others that Mr. Troutman be consulted in all matters in his field.
But above all, I found Mr. Troutman to be honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable.
The legal field is extremely well served by Mr. Troutman
