If you want legal counsel, I suggest looking elsewhere.
Rick was our family lawyer and attempted to help us in a few ways but failed miserably. When I was in a almost fatal car accident he guided my parents in a way that was very deceitful. He pressured my parents to settling the case as quickly as possible because that is in his words “all were gonna get.” Didn’t make us feel that he was fighting for us. After I completed rehabilitation, the Mass court asked me to appear in court to tell my story. I then went to Mr. Nunes for consultation, I asked “how should I proceed?” He then chastised me saying “what do you want to do? Put the kid in jail?” Really made me feel that I was the bad guy. It’s been quite some time since this occurred and I still can’t get over the fact that he spoke in such a demeaning manor. Overall, if you want to find a lawyer who will fight for your interest, do not use Mr. Nunes. My name is Alex, I have no reason to remain anonymous for the fact that this truly happened and wouldn’t want anyone else to be put through this.
