"I have been privileged to know Rick for over 25 years. During that time I have had a chance to handle cases where Rick was representing the opposing party. I have also had the opportunity to work with Rick as both a mediator and an arbitrator. I have always found him to be thorough and prepared and knowledgeable about the unique issues of law and the facts of each case I have observed him work on. As a mediator he works tirelessly to help the parties understand the positives and negatives of their case which leads to a better chance of the clients understanding of those issues and that has in many instances been important to resolving cases that he serves as a mediator on. I have had an opportunity to personally work with him on many occasions over the past 25 years and I can endorse him with confidence in all matters relating to civil litigation and guardianship issues."
