  • John Michael Stryker

    I endorse this lawyer. Rick has been an inspiration during my own path to becoming an attorney. I trusted Rick to handle a difficult case and therefore so should new clients.

  • Robert Benjamin Botnick

    I had the pleasure of witnessing Rick hard at work for a client, and I'm sure that he exercises the same level of professionalism for all of his clients - whether at the trial level or on appeal.
