  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer. There are few attorneys who handle the general practice of law really well, but Rick is one of those. He also has an excellent knowledge of business law matters. In fact if you need legal help with a business law issue, and his office is anywhere near you, then Rick is the man to see. I highly recommend him to you.
