Jeff was recommended to me by another local attorney. Due to my case involving my minor child, Jeff was extremely thorough about explain the laws to me. Adult cases vs. minor cases are very different.
A friend of mine and her elderly husband needed the assistance of a local attorney who had experience in dealing with bodily injury claims in Santa Clara County. After vetting out several other attorney's, we chose Mr. Rickard to represent my friends husband. We can state without equivocation that Mr Richard and his staff were conscientious, thorough, technically skilled with a bedside manner that was always gentle, in spite of being challenged by a grumpy old man whose wife speaks English as a second language
My friend sustained an injury in a church parking lot, there were bodily injuries as a result of the incident. To complicate matters, my friend had pre-existing medical conditions not related to the accident that needed to be sorted out with the insurance carrier and their claims adjuster.
The end result of many months of diligent effort on the part of Mr Rickard and his team was a settlement that was equitable, was delivered as promised, with all parties being satisfied with the outcome.
My wife and I experienced a tragic event, an event of such sorrow that our ability to think clearly was difficult. We found it necessary to hire an attorney to help us work through that tough time and indeed it was a difficult time, but knowing who to hire was a problem. You see, it had to be someone who had strong skills and knew all the “nuts and bolt” of the legal system but also someone with a heart, someone who listened, someone who cared and someone we would never forget. Jeff is that attorney, and we know he will be there for you too, with integrity, honesty and most of all caring; thanks Jeff for helping us we appreciate you.
Mr. Rickard was an exceptional lawyer and made our experience a positive one. The case we came to Mr. Rickard for was to represent our 9 year old daughter. He made us feel welcome and supported from the minute we made contact with him. He was kind and friendly to our daughter and made her feel at ease immediately upon meeting with him. He guided us through the entire process in a professional, yet compassionate way. I would highly recommend Mr. Rickard with full confidence that he would do an outstanding and upstanding job.
We lost our daughter in a auto accident due to others' negligence. Jeff was assigned to us and handled almost every aspect of the case, including the day-to-day issues. He was thorough, informative, and always there. He handled our case superbly and gave us the feeling that something was being done and that we would be fully satisfied when the case was completed, which we were. We would recommend Jeff to anyone without any reservations.
Mr. Rickard's knowledge, experience and caring came together as he walked our family through a difficult situation. This was our first time needing a lawyer and we were still in the midst of dealing with injury recovery. We are so glad we entrusted our case to Jeff and his team. We highly recommend him to whoever has a need.
