Within seconds of meeting with Richard Serpe, he identified a number of potential mistakes I was making - many of which could have been quite costly. Throughout the entire process, from the accident, to physical therapy to court dates and depositions, Richard acted as my advocate, my friend, my partner and my champion. He was meticulous in his gathering of evidence, he was thoughtful in how he handled documentation. There were days when I couldn't focus on the future because the present was just too challenging. Richard often checked in on me, took phone calls and emails and was incredibly responsive. He took all the heat so I could focus on recovery. I can't imagine how I would have been able to make it through this process without having Richard by my side.

My experience with Richard Serpe can be summarized in two words, “absolute trust.” I came to Mr. Serpe on the advice of a friend after a car hit me while riding my motorcycle. I immediately sensed that Mr. Serpe was an exceptionally capable and professional attorney whose sole objective would be to look out for my best interests; and that’s precisely what he did. He was candid and thorough when discussing the circumstances of my case and always ensured I understood the legal process and what to expect next. His advice was invaluable and enabled me to reach a settlement that fairly compensated me for the injuries I sustained and provided me with financial security. I would not hesitate to contact Richard Serpe again if the situation necessitated it; I would recommend him to anyone.

Our family has been represented for the last five years in a federal and state suit against parties responsible for our home being built with faulty drywall. We have always found everyone at their firm to be kind, caring, compassionate, diligent, and very skilled! They were able to procure a settlement for us and many others through this ordeal when so many others said it would be impossible. They were patient with our many questions and always timely with their responses!
