Rick Leo is as solid as they get. He sees the law from both sides, has respect for the law yet honors his duty as a lawyer with the best representation. I feel I was lucky to have him represent me and don't think I could have gotten better counsel. He helped me through a difficult time in facing some unresolved legal issues, that allowed me to move on with my life. The lessons learned and his character were inspirational and continue to resonate with me today in making me a better person.
I am without words in attempting to explain the value of Mr. Leo's counsel. I'm honestly not a huge believer in the system or the process, however, I found myself caught down in it. Mr. Leo provided a balanced, non-judgemental, solid counsel. Additionally, he provided me with the very best defense. He is fair and honest, he will charge you a fee, but the fee will be fair. I am indebted to Mr. Leo, his assistance has been invaluable to me.
Rick Leo is a life-saver. Post-arrest for my DUI, I was scared nearly sick - this was the first time I had broken the law. Rick promptly got in touch with me and thoroughly walked me through the possible outcomes. Of the several lawyers I contacted, Rick was easily the most personally engaged in my case, and the best at reassuring me without offering false promises. Rick does not BS. He tells you clearly what you need to do, and what he can do for you.
Rick's assistance throughout the process was invaluable. He was a consummate professional, keeping in close contact with me throughout the process. He personally guided me through the tasks I needed to complete to achieve a favorable outcome (A/DIS, Victim's Panel etc.) He showed up three hours before my pre-trial hearing just to make sure he would have a chance to speak to the prosecutor.
And his professionalism achieved clear results. My sentence was reduced to Negligent Driving 1st Degree, and I won my DOL Hearing. I could not be happier with Rick's work, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a DUI attorney.
Rick is one of those people that just genuinely cares about other people and takes great pride in the quality of his services. Due to that pride and genuine care he doesn't treat his clients as just another case or just another dollar.
I called Rick on a Sunday about my situation and he returned my call immediately to set up a consultation. From beginning to end Rick was there every step of the way to guide me through the process, answer my questions, and reassure me during times of uncertainty. He was always available and extremely responsive even on nights/weekends/holidays. He truly made going through this tough situation much more bearable.
When you have someone in your corner with the knowledge, experience, integrity and respect like Rick has you know you are in good hands and you will recieve the best possible outcome. This proved true in my case and I truly could not have asked for a better Lawyer!
Rick did a wonderful job. He showed great patience to a person who does not understand the legal system. He made sure that each step of the process was explained in terms I could understand. Thank you so much Rick!
This was my first DUI and I was scared to death! Rick was WONDERFUL. He was always available when I needed him and he made me feel so at ease. Rick was also able to reduce my sentence so much lower than I ever anticipated... He's the best and I HIGHLY recommend him!
My DUI was my first encounter with the law, and was an extremely embarrassing, frightening process. Rick was recommended to me by a friend, and I know that I could not have found a better attorney to represent me. Upon our first meeting, he explained everything in detail, including all of the possibilities that could come with different charges. He kept me informed throughout the entire process, and helped me to feel comfortable with each step. Rick helped to resolve my case as quickly as possible; I would trust no one else with this process. Words cannot express my appreciation for Rick Leo.
Great Lawyer! He put in the extra effort that helped me win my case. I would definitely recommend Rick. He is knowledgeable, diligent and on your side.
Rick Leo was the best thing that could have happened to me in my situation! I got arrested for a DUI in June of 2010 and knew I needed to find an attorney. From my 1st meeting, Mr. Leo explained everything in detail and made sure I understood every aspect of what was going. He made me feel at ease and I felt like I was in good hands! My gut instinct was not wrong. Mr. Leo was always available for me and my questions regarding my situation. He was always well prepared and made sure I was well prepared as well! His communication through the whole ordeal was above and beyond anything I would have expected! Amazing!!! When we finally got the court date his knowledge of the court and the people (including the Judge and the prosecuting attorney) in the court was truly astonushing!! He was smiling, shaking hands, and making sure I was well taken care of! He had the respect of everyone in that room! He got my DUI charge down to a Neg driving and NO probation!!!! I was extremely happy with his services!!! It didn't stop there, he continued to guide me even after the ruling to be sure I was making all the appropriate moves to finalize and clean up my case. Truly amazing service! Thank you Rick Leo for all your help sir!!!!
Rick was highly recommended by a very close friend, and he did not disappoint. My experience was above and beyond my expectations, Rick was highly informative, knowledgeable and a valuable asset to have during this difficult experience. Also his fees were very reasonable, his practice deserves all the highest ratings it can get. Thanks again Rick
