I have a CDL, and was facing not only losing my CDL, but my job as well. Mr. Rilke was honest upfront and told me he could not promise to win my case, but he did promise to do the best he legally could do for my case. He responded to every email I sent him. His honesty, his extensive legal knowledge eased my mind, and I knew that even if I didn't win my case I knew that my lawyer had done the best he possibly could for me. And do you know what?... .He did win my case. He saved not only my CDL, , but my job as well . Now my future is brighter than it's ever been. There's only one law firm that I will use if I ever need a lawyer again. Thank you ....Christopher Rike!!!
Mr. Rike expertly handled my speeding citation. He did an excellent job at keeping me informed and walking me through the process. Would highly recommend.
I have been to Chris several times about family law issues regarding
Trusts, wills,elderly law he was very helpful about laws regarding all these issues I highly recommend Chris in any Family law issue you might have!
Over a year ago after I split from my child's dad, I established child support through the court myself but then he retalliated by filing for custody of my child. That is when I requested the services of Mr. Rike. He was very thorough in explaining the process and ended up helping me establish full/sole custody of my child. The non-custodial parent then decided this year to modify the child support to almost nothing and so I called Mr. Rike again. The same professional service was given, very thorough in explaining everything and helping me feel at ease. This time Mr. Kielsky attended the court date and I was very pleased with his demeanor and presence during the court hearing.He fought diligently to have this modification denied and he succeeded greatly. I will recommend Mr. Rike and Mr. Kielsky to everyone that I come across in need of a lawyer. I am very grateful for them and I am glad that I chose this firm to represent me and my family.
I am an out of state attorney who needed Arizona counsel to assist in dismissing a protective order a father was hiding behind to keep a child from the mother who had custody. Mr. RIke and his firm moved quickly and efficiently to get the matter resolved and went beyond the call of duty in reuniting mother with the child.
He may be a good lawyer but after paying almost $9,000 I got no positive results at all. No extra money, no sole custody of the child. Deposition was 3 (or 4) hours joke which cost me $4200! They worked together with his partner (Kielskiy?) and maybe it was not his fault but they charged so much for deposition asking lots of unnecessary questions and didn't even pay attention on important financial information my ex husband gave them at the deposition. They kept promising me big money til the very end when it was clear (even for me!) that there is no way I can get them. This divorce was nightmare and they made this nightmare very expensive. I could do much better (with the same results) without them and would save lots of money. I made very big mistake going to lawyers. Tons of papers, headache, tons of money and BIG disappointment! After I lost this case they gave me some small discount for deposition which I thought was fair.
Christopher assisted me with a property settlement between myself and a former partner. He was informatice, easy to understand, made himself available when needed, and was patient as the process took quite a while from my own delays. In the end, he even refunded unused funds in my retainer account promptly. I would use him again and have already referrred others. Even following my contract settlement, he has been helpful at directing me to other trustworthy professionals when I had needs beyond the scope of his practice.
Highly recommend this honorable attorney. He was always calm and cordial. I got custody, child support, alimony and part of my ex's pension. he kept me informed at all times of my rights and kept my emotions in check in court. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this attorney.
It seems difficult to find professionals who are conscientious and caring about the work they do. I was lucky enough to have Chris on my side. He helped me through a difficult divorce with patience, understanding, good advice and follow-through. Chris is an attorney who keeps his word. I know I would not have had the same outcome if another attorney had worked with me. Thank goodness I found him!
Chistopher provided me with the utmost proffessional service. He exceeded my expectations as a lawyer and person. I would highly recommend Christopher to anyone needs a lawyer during this really difficult time.
