I endorse this lawyer. Of all the lawyers I have ever endorsed, Ronnie is at the top of the list. He has obtained the largest settlements and verdicts that I have seen, and he does it ethically. Most impressive is that once he takes your case, his entire heart and emotions are yours for the duration of his representation, even if your case makes a turn for the worst. I have seen Ronnie take cases to trial that he knew was a likely loser, because he cared about his clients right to be heard in court. I give my highest endorsement to this lawyer.
