Amazing Attorney who helps with personal injury
Rich is a true asset to the legal profession. His knowledge and attention to detail is second to none. He would be the first person I would turn to in the event that I am ever injured again. I hope that is not the case, but I know that I would be well taken care of with Rich Grungo!
