Highly Recommend Charles Rick
I highly recommend Rick Law. I contacted Charles Rick via email and requested an estate planning consultation. I received a prompt response from him and his paralegal, Amanda Steckerl, and was working with them within a matter of days. Upon meeting, I was immediately impressed with their willingness to not only work with me on all facets of estate planning, but with their attention to detail and depth of knowledge. They take a holistic approach to estate planning that covers crisis planning, spousal planning, and legacy planning, and they offer invaluable advice throughout the process to help you better understand all the caveats buried in the fine print that are often confusing and/or misunderstood. Additionally, they take the time to walk you through the why behind their recommendations and guide you on changes you can make immediately to better protect yourself and your loved ones. You walk away with everything you need plus peace of mind.

For Andrew Scomorucha I am writing to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the exceptional legal representation you provided during the case. Your professionalism, expertise, and dedication truly made a significant impact on the outcome. Your ability to navigate the complexities of the legal system and communicate effectively with all parties involved were instrumental in achieving a favorable result. I felt reassured and confident throughout the process knowing that I had such a competent and committed attorney by my side. Thank you for your unwavering support, attention to detail, and the genuine care you demonstrated. Your efforts have not only resolved the legal matter at hand but have also left a lasting positive impression on my overall experience.

Great Experience with Estate Planning
My husband and I worked with Charles Rick to understand options for estate planning. He outlined all options and discussed with us benefits to each option (e.g. - trust versus will). He also provided his input on shared property and recommendation, which was greatly appreciated. This week, we worked with him and his team to complete our will and ensure documentation is notarized and that our family is protected now and in the future. We would highly recommend Rick and have peace of mind we have our estate plan in place.

Efficient & Effective Firm
Met with Charles and we laid out a plan for my defense in a civil suit. I was assigned a very capable and skilled associate who won my case flat out. I couldn't be happier and the costs were vey fair.

Best in the Area
Chad was a huge help in a few different ways. I had a few cases with him and they all went in my favor. He has the right amount of knowledge and experience to handle all my needs. Will continue to build a long term relationship with him for all my legal needs.

Very Satisfied
I was having issues with a contractor. The work he doesn't was hired for wasn't getting done. Wouldn't return my call. I contacted Mr. Rick's office to assist me with this matter. The issue was resolved promptly. Thank you for everything.

Putting clients first
I consulted an out-of-state attorney, Mr. Rick who without any hesitation assisted me in suggesting a more cost-effective approach to collecting a small claims judgement. His suggestion worked and I collected my judgement in full. By putting me first, and not himself, a positive outcome resulted, and he was the only attorney out of several attorneys I contacted who took the time to try to resolve my situation cost-effectively. Many rewards in heaven to Mr. Rick. I highly recommend him.

Great Experience
Charles handled my Chester County Tax Appeal and provided a Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney and Living Will for my wife and I. We won our tax appeal and saved over 1,000.00 in annual taxes. The appraiser that Charles recommended was excellent. Charles also reviewed the local real estate market himself. His preparation for the hearing was thorough to say the least. Charles and his staff spent significant time with my wife and I going through the Will, Living Will and POA. He provided lots of insight, explained all facets of the documents and answered all my questions. It was a truly educational eye opening experience. What impressed me the most though was the amount of time he afforded us. Most professionals I deal with want to get you in and out of their office as quickly as possible. That was not the case with Charles. I had many questions and he was willing to spend as much time as needed to make sure I was comfortable with the final versions of the documents. I highly recommend Charles Rick and plan to use him in the future.

Would highly recommend for Real Estate problems!
From the first contact till the end Charles communication was second to none! You never feel like you aren't important and no question is too small. He was very knowledgeable with our real estate issues and didn't waste any time taking action. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anybody.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Chad Rick exceptionally handled my divorce and custody agreement involving unusual out-of-state circumstances in a quick and straightforward fashion. He was prompt to respond to my initial inquiry and all subsequent calls. He clearly defined our objectives. He thoroughly researched the out-of-state differences. He executed all parts of the proceedings in a consistent and timely fashion, keeping me updated at every step. Chad is professional but put me at ease. He is knowledgeable but clarified my questions in a respectful way at my level of understanding. He is confident but sensitive to the difficult nature of divorce and custody. I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Chad Rick for legal representation.

Rick Went Above and Beyond
I hired attorney Charles Rick to handle my divorce but knew my case was going to be more involved that just a simple divorce. Attorney Rick walked through each situation concerning custody of my son, business income and property; helping me to understand the laws and my rights. I left his office feeling more confident and less afraid of dealing with each of the matters. He referred me to a great accountant who is helping get my business on the right track. Attorney Rick also handled the legal matters of setting up a new business LLC in the matter of ten days! In the end, an agreement was reached in all matters concerning my divorce and I could not be happier with the outcome. Thanks Charles for providing me with top-notch representation and truly caring about my future and the future of my business! I now have an attorney and an accountant I trust!

excellent lawyer, highly recommend
Attorney Rick did a great job handling my divorce. He kept me well informed every step of the way and made sure I was part of all the decision being made.

Exceeds Expectations
I first met Mr. Rick when he was first starting out as an attorney. I was initially hesitant to hire a young lawyer, but after speaking with him for about 15 minutes about my issue, I felt he was the right guy for the job. He was both knowledegable and affordable. He helped me with a simple retail theft matter and managed to get the charges dismissed at the first hearing. I have since used him on 2 other occassions (setting up a small business and more recently a child support matter). I am pleased with him not only as a professional but as an individual. I will continue to reccomend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

An attorney who makes you feel special
I have had many attorneys help me throughout the years on various issues. I was referred to Mr. Rick through the local bar association for a custody matter. Mr. Rick is the first attorney who I felt genuinely cared about myself and my case as much as I did. I did not have a lot of money, but he was willing to work out payment arrangements that I could afford. He contacted me reguarly just to find out how I was doing and offer his support. I have used Mr. Rick on 2 other occassions in the past several months. He has always kept me well informed and returned all of my calls within a day. He is especially honest when it comes to making financial decisions. He is not an attorney who just cares about my money. I would reccomend Mr. Rick to anyone.
