Best advice I've ever relieved
Michael is the lawyer that I turn to for all my legal advise. I depend on his legal expertise in all of my business desisions.

My go to guy..!
Mike Ricci has been my attorney since he was licensed 5 years ago. My opinion, he's one of the most dedicated, professional and honest attorneys I have come to know. His approach is to explain and layout his task to his clients keeping them involved throughout, not just billing and completing while keeping the client in the dark. I believe we as clients don't see enough of this in today's day and age, Mike has aways made me feel comfortable as a client and I can always count on his professionalism and commitment to his clients.

Professional Lawyer with High Integrity
Mr. Ricci was my representative during a dispute over a false lein that was put on my property by a contractor that did not perform any work on the property. He was able to get the lein waved. He was very thorough and kept in high communication during the process. He is also representing me for another dispute with the same contractor over a contract in which the contractor has not up held his end of the contract. I definitely recommend Mr. Ricci for any legal matters.

"Michael is a strong litigation attorney, who is client focused and driven. He maintains a professional demeanor, while actively advocating on his client's behalf. Michael would definitely be an asset in pursuing or defending your matter."
Litigation Attorney | Jun 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Not very many lawyers manage to achieve both "likeable" and "serious". Even fewer do so in litigation practices. And even fewer in their first 5 years of practice. Michael has truly taken advantage of the complex practice his firm undertakes, and in turn he gives clients a lawyer they can both trust, and like. A rarity. No reservations in this endorsement."
Litigation Attorney | Jun 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer."
Litigation Attorney | May 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have been a co-counsel with Michael on a case that appeared, at first, to be extremely complex and time-consuming. His approach to handling the matter, in addition to his work ethic, helped to simplify and expdite the entire process. Most importantly, our client felt very comfortable with Michael's assistance after the case began evolving. In addition to his knowledge on the law, he was very personable and understanding to our client. If given the chance, I would love to work on more cases with Michael and the Ricci Partners law firm."
