In 2003, I sought council for a terrible car crash. I was burned by another law firm. I felt their only motive was money, not justice. Then I met "Skip," aka Roger Ritchie Jr.. His dedication and desire to help me was sincere. He cared for me as a person, not as a dollar sign. I have never met anyone so dedicated to serving me. I could not believe that there was an honest and compassionate Lawyer left in the world until I met Skip. He is a devoted and brilliant man who stuck by me again and again, no matter how much "the cards were stacked against me." His mind and his heart are in the right place, which makes a difficult situation so much more bearable. Without him, I would not have a peace of mind, a fair settlement, nor an attorney I could truly count on to help me when I couldn't help myself. He is my Angel. Through the years, Skip has "gone to bat" for me many times. Never has he failed me. I believe it is built in his character to care for everyone like family.
