  • Vincent J. Quatrini Jr.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Rick was a presenter for me in a Medicine for Lawyers seminar. His presentation was articulate, precise, and informative. Rick is a zealous advocate for his clients. He does his homework. He is always prepared. He has a very affable personality which, I believe contributes to his success in the courtroom.
