I hired Mr Madsen when he was working in his Walnut Creek office. At first he was responsive and showed enthusiasm and energy in working on my case. The case proved to be longer than Mr Madsen had anticipated. To my disappointment he lost interest in my case and towards the end my defense was just average at best.
Rick is THE BEST. Hands down. Knows the law, knows the process and the ins and outs of the system better than anyone -- it's all about who you know? Well, he knows EVERYBODY. Straight shooter, does not sugar coat to "sell" himself, he doesn't have to. Referred to me with the highest regard and now I can personally say he was worth every single penny. One mistake could have cost me everything, but it didn't. Could not be more pleased with the outcome he was able to pull together for my situation.
I hired Rick Madsen to represent me in a DUI I received in Walnut Creek last year, and I was very happy with the outcome. Rick personally handled my case every step of the way, he arranged it so that I would not have to take time off work to go to court, and had my case reduced to a wet reckless so that I wouldn't have a DUI on my record. He was also able to get me a restricted driver's license, instead of gettign suspended by DMV. Would definitely recommend, but fyi -- I will take a cab next time.
