Since my son hasn't rated Mr.Rivera I'm going to do it for him my son was in an accident the other driver was at fault but my son was charged with DUI Mr.Rivera took this case on it lasted for about 3 years by the time the case was over Rick did his magic because my son wasn't charged with a DUI nor did they make a plea deal to charge him with wreckless driving all said and done Rick walked out of court that day with my son and was charged with absolutely nothing yes I said nothing Rick once again worked his magic as far as I'm concerned and this is just my opinion between my son's case and my case Rick is pretty close to be unbeatable so if anyone is seeking legal advice Rick Rivera is the man to call

I fell into my DUI case very confused and scared. Mr.Rivera was superb in his actions to walk me through the legal process as well as keep my rights protected and keep me comfortable in the courtroom. He guided and went out of his way to ensure the best outcome I could receive in my situation which resulted in only a reckless driving charge. I am EXTREMELY grateful in his work and can not recommend him enough for anyone in a similar situation as I was. A truly professional lawyer and would STRONGLY urge anyone facing legal issues to choose him.

When I came home for Christmas break I only had two weeks to find and hire an attorney who would take care of my mother and grandmothers petit theft charges. I only had a week to find an attorney and when I went into the office Rick and his staff were available immediately. After speaking with Rick I felt comfortable that he was the right person to take care of my family. With me being out of state I needed to find someone that would make me feel comfortable enough that this would be taken care of. Rick was a true professional from the start. Everything was explained in full details and the options available. During the case, Rick and his staff were always in contact with me and were very patient with my family (Language Barrier).
During the court date Rick was great. He was able to get the best possible outcome. My family and I are truly grateful and will always appreciate the hard work that Rick and his staff did.

I recently hired Rick Rivera for my court case. I was charged with reckless driving, and felony possession of a controlled substance. While many details of the case were untrue, he helped by getting the reckless driving charges moved to withholding, and was able to get me onto the PTI program for the possession charge. He was present for every single one of my judicial hearings, which occurred about every 5-6 weeks. By his presence in the court room allowed me to feel comfortable, and assured I was getting the overall best treatment from the judge. After a short time, I completed the program, and my charges were dropped. A total success! Rick Rivera is professional, intelligent, understanding to your needs, and I would highly recommend him for your criminal defense, or any other lawyer needs you may have.

I had been in process with interviewing many lawyers in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg and Clearwater area in order to find the best lawyer in the area to represent my DUI case. Once I had interviewed Rick at Carlson, Meissner Hart and Haysletts office, I actually put down my retainer in cash that day. Not only did Rick inform me fully with all of the necessary steps and procedures to confidently recieve my hardship license and move the process in the right direction, he was able to take my case down to reckless driving. I am not only very pleased with the outcome of my case but also impressed with the professionalism and promptness Rick and his staff, Shannon specifically, showed me before, during and after my case was settled.

I've used Mr. Rivera now on two separate occasions. I love the fact he's honest, down to earth, and gets the job done right the first time. I would recommend Mr. Rivera to anyone.
