The Ripka Family was great!
I have never been in a car accident and the Ripka family helped me every step of the way. They made sure that I focused on my recovery after my car accident and they took care of the rest. The team, which worked together as a cohesive family, kept the lines of communication open by informing me what was going on and checked in on me. They fought for me to get a settlement I deserved. Thank you for all your help during one of the toughest times of my life! If anyone out there needs assistance then you’ve got the right people on your side.

By far the most experienced and reliable attorney, who truly cares for his clients. No one can compare to his brilliance. He has dedicated much effort and compassion into my case and won it.

The worst possible experience
This guy is awful. I signed a retainer with him thinking he would help me with an awful accident I was in, and he did absolutely nothing. There was a video of the accident, I was gravely injured and lost my job and academic career over it, and he did nothing for me after agreeing to represent me. Gave me no advice, never even interviewed me to see how I had been injured or what I had lost due to the accident. Worse than that, he sent me to a doctor (citimed) during covid and they didn't take temperatures or wear masks. He put my health in jeopardy and traumatized me. I saw cockroaches in the corners of every room. He failed to get the surveillance video of my accident, refused to take any phone calls with me until I threatened him with a lawsuit, then when I confronted him with the way he mishandled my case he dropped me as a client. Reporting him to the DA and the bar. I can't believe he's practicing.

Unprofessional and dishonest.
Performed a medical review of a case and he did not pay the $3000 for my time and expertise.
