  • Melinda Garcia

    I endorse this lawyer. I had known Mr. Rien by reputation only. He is AV rated, voted a Super Lawyer every year and of course, I had seen him on tv with some of his high profile cases making the news. Years later, I had the pleasure of meeting him professionally. I refer him matters with great confidence in his firm's professionalism.
