    Richard Grossman began working for me as an associate more than 30 years ago. During that time I have observed him develop his craft as a trial lawyer from handling small to no catastrophic injury cases. He is always on target with an ability to paint a picture for jurors that they can easily understand. He is afraid of no one and knows the direct route to the finish line.

    Rick Grossman is the best trial lawyer I have ever worked with. His ability to think on his feet and make instant decisions is second to none. His comfort level and presence in front of a jury makes the difficult look easy. If I was in need of trial counsel he would be the person to whom I would turn.
