Rick was tremendous. I was involved in a situation when visiting Madison, WI and without Rick's help I was facing a serious charge that would have required 2-3 return trips to the city. Being from out of town, this would have been near impossible to balance with my job, let alone what may have happened had I chosen to represent myself.
However, Rick delivered on exactly what he promised from the beginning of the process and then some. Rick was extremely up front and honest about my chances in the case and his efforts resulted in a complete dismissal of my charges. I would not have been successful without the help of Rick.
I'm glad that I found Rick when I was searching for a lawyer, some of the other guys I spoke to came off as hokey, ego-driven, and downright obnoxious. But Rick was real, relatable, and easy going. I felt an immediate sense of comfort knowing I had selected the right lawyer when I chose to move forward with Rick and he never let me down.

When I initially contacted Rick he was very honest about my chances of succeeding with my case. He advised me of all possible scenarios that could play out, and what my rights were. Throughout the process he asked strategical questions pertinent to my situation and I never felt like I was being led astray. Rick is a professional in the truest sense of the word and I would recommend his counsel to anyone in need of hiring someone on their behalf.

I hired Rick to help me through a difficult time and he did an excellent job. I called a few lawyers in Madison but chose Rick because he was very down to earth and didn't try to bowl me over with ego or gruffness. He took the time to explain how the process worked and prepared me for the possible outcomes. As we progressed he kept me updated and let me know what I needed to focus on next. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
