I suffered injuries in an accident. I can't thank Rick and his team enough for guiding me through getting compensated. Rick and his staff are friendly, patient and always answered my many questions during this process. I am so thankful that I chose him to represent me. I am extremely happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Rick Morefield to anyone needing legal representation.

Following a car accident where I sustained an injury, when I was not able to reach a fair outcome with the other driver's insurance company, I reached out for help. An old friend recommended that I contact Rick and I am so glad she did. I felt at ease with Rick from our very first phone call. He never pressured me, he always made sure I understood what was happening, and he wanted me to be actively involved in every aspect of the case. Rick helped all the scary stuff get just a little less scary with his approachable attitude, his sense of humor, and how obviously he cared about me and the outcome of my case. I will always be grateful for the work he did on my behalf. I definitely will recommend Rick to anyone and while I hope I never have the need to utilize his services again, I would do so in a heart beat.

I spent many years working closely with Rick on our case. He was respectful and always made me feel like he was diligently working to pursue my best interests. I've worked with a lot of attorneys in my line of work, but Rick was different. I say that because Rick ALWAYS took my calls when he was in the office. I even was able to speak to Rick when he was on vacation (which knowing him as well as I do now, I advise him to quit taking client calls while on vacation unless it's URGENT...which it was not). Rick makes sure to look at the case from all sides & listened closely to my input, which I felt was important, as I'm the one who noticed that there was a issue with the contract in the first place. Rick is kind and honest. Rick is a great trial attorney. He doesn't just jump into things, he bounces ideas of his lawyer friends/coworkers/colleagues before making a move, which means he isn't cocky. A good trait for a lawyer. I wish the case wouldn't have taken so long to settle, but that's how these things go. He was a great choice & I'd choose him a million more times.

A zealous advocate, Rick will leave no stone unturned to advance your interests legally and ethically. It is my pleasure to enthusiastically endorse Rick Morefield without reservation to anyone needing an excellent, experienced trial attorney.
