    • I recommend A. Dykstra.
    • I hired A. Dykstra more than 3 years ago.
    • A. Dykstra handled my Insurance matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Despite having been through five suits on a related matter with representation from various regional firms, Richard was the first attorney who was able to strategize a response to the insurer that resulted in a global settlement to all claimants. He has an uncanny understanding of how insurance companies think and of their processes and motivations. I've retained most of the major New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco firms over the years, and still never seen the "bang for the buck" that Richard delivered. In any future matter involving insurance, I'd pay his retainer out of my own pocket just to know he was representing us. He is superb.

    There is no one who knows more about insurance coverage than Richard Dykstra. He is experienced and knowledgeable in this area and as brilliant and persuasive in the courtroom as he is on paper or in one on one discussion. He provides his clients with a thoughtful, realistic and complete analysis and is very accessible and willing to answer questions. I highly recommend him to anyone with an insurance coverage problem who wants intelligent, innovative and ethical representation.
    He has no peer when it comes to the intricacies of this very difficult area of the law.

    • A. Dykstra handled my Insurance matter.

    I am a subcontractor who has been involved in many condominium defect lawsuits. I've retained Mr. Dykstra many times over the last 5 years for insurance coverage issues. Mr. Dykstra's performance has been outstanding in every case. I highly recommend Mr. Dykstra for anyone with insurance coverage issues. As a matter of fact, I was so impressed with the job Mr. Dykstra has done that I've moved all my legal needs to Stafford Fry Cooper

    Dykstra is as calm as he is thorough. He judiciously leaves questions of business up to the client, yet he also provides the paths that permit the client to fully consider courses of action.
