    I have known Rick for almost 30 years and during that time have had many opportunities to evaluate his expertise and professionalism. Without fail, his performance has been superb and he is held in very high regard by his peers. Even more importantly, he always acts in a courteous manner and takes very seriously his ethical obligations as well. It is a privilege to be given this honor to endorse one of the most highly respected lawyers in Arizona.

    Rick has been gracious enough to assist me with cases in my relatively young legal career. His mentoring, experience, and litigation skills have shown me what a great lawyering looks like. He is intuitive, efficient, and confident. Most importantly he is at ease interacting with clients, so much so that I am always happy to refer my own friends and family to him for their legal needs.
