In Good Hands
From the moment I stepped in the door to meet with Rick and Martha, his assistant, I felt at ease and knew I would get the attention my case needed. I never felt like a number but instead that I was important to him. Very professional and very hands on when dealing with the insurance companies. I would highly recommend Rick and his team!

Attorney Rick
I liked how Attorney Rick handled my case and the way he treats people. I think he is a very good attorney and I recommend him.

Recommendation
When I was injured, I felt bad because the medical help I was given was inadequate. I went to various lawyers, but they did not want to take my case because I worked at a temp agency. Rick did take my case and soon after I started treating with other better doctors, including a specialist. I received compensation for my case that really helped me out, so I recommend attorney Rick
