Our family used Mr. Hutchinson based upon a recommendation for a family member involved in a serious criminal matter. We had never been involved in anything like this. Mr. Hutchinson upon our first meeting was apathetic, knowledgable and concerned. Immediately we knew it was not a matter of just a job for him, but he genuinely was concerned on getting the facts and helping our family member. Promptly, he took action investigating, contacting those involved following steps to keep our family member safe and treated fairly. The situation continued for 9 months. During that time we were in contact with him often and he called us night and day. If we contacted him, he returned our calls immeditely. His professionalism and knowledge of the laws and systems is brilliant! We went to court and felt at ease with not only the preparation he had given our family member but his presentation in court. He had the facts of the case, documents to verify them, relentless in his pursuit of justice for our family member. To this day, we can still call Mr. Hutchinson and ask him a question and he is more then happy to talk to us and take the time for us. We are grateful for his service. Our family member would not be where he is today had Mr. Hutchinson not represented us!!!

Rick handled my case with the utmost respect, compassion, and diligence. Rick was able to secure a favorable outcome with my case and enable me to begin a new chapter of my life worry free. He always kept me informed and advised me of all possible outcomes of my case. I would recommend Rick to anyone seeking a highly competent and respectful criminal defense attorney. Thanks!!

I have hired Rick on several occasions from 2001 to 2014. His knowledge and competence on every case has been comforting and reassuring. His work ethic far surpasses that of any other Lawyer in years past. His knowledge of the field of addiction and DUI cases are extensive, making him a great choice for me. For other people considering hiring him, remember one thing. There is NO such thing as a great, cheap Lawyer. Rick is worth every penny I have spent in the past!

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Rick for many years and often refer him criminal defense matters including DUI and white collar crime cases. I am very comfortable referring these criminal matters to him because he is an excellent trial lawyer, well respected by his peers and the judiciary. The bottom line is that he gets great results for his clients. I whole heartedly endorse him.
