There is no finer nor more effective DUI lawyer anywhere than "Rick," who is a credit to the profession in general and to DUI defense in particular. He is creative, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and has the rare ability to be able to speak convincingly both to judges and to juries. I could not speak more highly of anyone than I could speak of Rick, and it is an honor to pen these words for such a true craftsman and warrior.
