Personal Injury Claim
Rick provided my wife and I with expert legal advice and representation. Ricks staff was very attentive and knowledgeable throughout the legal process keeping us well informed. Rick was able to settle our cases out of court and obtain a settlement for injury compensation which was very favorable.

Personable and diligent
I had such a great experience with Attorney Roberts and the whole staff there. They helped me through a difficult time and fought for me to get all I deserved. I really felt like they held my hand through the whole process.
