    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.
