Bad Faith Settlement - State Farm
Richard led our bad faith suit against our insurance company that denied a significant claim required for home repairs after a pipe burst in our home. Richard is an expert on bad faith claims and proved that expertise in helping to win our claim against a top insurance company. Richard led our legal team over 18 months and was able to negotiate a fair settlement for us at a reasonable cost. We are very pleased with the quality of our legal team, the support and expertise they provided throughout the litigation process. They are sincerely a winning team!

Rich Gramlich is an excellent attorney and zealous advocate!
Rich did a great job representing our financial services organization and I highly recommend him! We retained Rich to initiate proceedings against our insurance company for denying a large claim. As a first step, Rich engaged in discussions with opposing counsel and set forth our position in no-nonsense terms. He substantiated our position with thorough case law citations. As a result, we ended up settling this matter without having to file a complaint, saving our organization the expense and time-consuming process of litigation. I have been practicing law for over 20 years and I found Rich to be one of the toughest negotiators out there. Our executive team is very pleased with the outcome in this matter. We appreciate Rich and his zealous advocacy! Highly recommend!

PEP attorney
Rich Gramlich, Professional, Experienced and Prepared. "PEP" How can you do better for your client than obtaining a settlement well in excess of what the client expected. Rich did just that. He was cost conscious asking me, if I wanted to pay for a deposition or pass due to costs? I left that chose to Rich who chose yes and I'm glad he did. The deposition appeared to have increased the settlement in mediation quite significantly. Rich was obviously very well prepared for the deposition with a good retention of the facts and issues supporting my claim. I am not an Attorney but my two kids are so I get it. Law is a business so chose a lawyer that's a winner. I did and it provided great results. Great experience. Thank You Mr. Gramlich

Highly recommended attorney
The best decision I made when I was involved in a personal injury case was to aquire Mr Richard C Gramlich with Tiffany and Bosko law group. Professional personal attention and relentless pursuit of adequate compensation for my case were the results. Exceeded my expectations.

Richard is a superb lawyer with the experience, and skill to find the Achilles heel of the case, drive hard into it to obtain a very favorable settlement. He is smart, ethical, aggressive and very cost conscious, with the nick name "Bulldog" which is well deserved. I am also an attorney with over 40 years of trial experience, so consider the source. One of my companies had a complex multidefendant construction case which was filed by Sacks Tierney, PA., a firm by which I was very disappointed. Richard took the case over on the eve of trial, got up to speed very efficiently, filed a barrage of pretrial pleadings, and forced a very favorable resolution in mediation. Richard is a good example of how every trial lawyer should conduct themselves. I would give him six stars if that was an option.

Strong, Impressive and No Nonsense. A True Professional
Rich had the courage to pursue compensation from another lawyer who had made major & costly mistakes in my representation. No other attorney was willing to go against one of their peers in a clear case of Malpractice. Rich clearly saw the issues, made a clear and concise demand, with thorough documentation, to the attorney and then reached a reasonable settlement with the Malpractice Insurance Company on my behalf. He offered a reasonable fee structure and I could not be happier with his representation. I only wish that I had been introduced to him several years earlier and had him in my corner before I met this other attorney. Although I hope that I do not need his services for a situation like this again, I will review any and all of my other business dealings with him prior to signing anything. Thank you Richard!!

Smart, Experienced and Tough
I absolutely endorse Richard Gramlich. He is smart, knowledgeable, experienced and explains things quickly, thoroughly and in a way that a layperson can understand. And....he is tough with the opposition. I hired Rich because my first lawyer was lacking in some of the above-mentioned qualities, most notably being tough with the opposition. I’m grateful I found Rich and I believe that without his representation I would have been ruined financially. That being said, the best course of action is NOT to get involved in a lawsuit in the first place if you can possibly avoid it. It is a losing proposition for an individual consumer/plaintiff and when your attorney and other professionals tell you that you won’t be “made whole” – believe them. After building my house with a reputable builder I discovered a substantial construction defect that the builder was unable (and unwilling) to fix. After months of frustrating and fruitless conversations with the builder, I hired an attorney. After over two years of even more frustrating and expensive motions, talks, calls and forensic tests, it was clear that my attorney was in over his head. Rich was recommended by other professionals involved with my case. He came on board and immediately took control, explained everything to me in plain English (so I could easily understand what was happening and what my options were) and did so quickly (important when conversations are being timed and billed by the hour). After almost three years since the discovery of the construction defect, I finally had an advocate who was not only willing, but ABLE to fight for my rights and legal protections. It was another year before the case finally ended. Although in the end, I lost a substantial amount of money, I recognize that without Rich’s help the financial devastation would have been much, much worse. Once again, Rich was a strong advocate, smart and he truly saved the day.

I am an attorney and, as such, appreciate quality work. Richard has handled several matters for me in Arizona. He is a very strong, well-prepared advocate. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking outstanding representation.

Richard was retained to successfully resolve a residential water damage insurance claim with mold and asbestos contamination. He is a strategic thinker who thoroughly reviewed my policy coverage, evaluated actions taken by my insurance adjuster and determined failure to act in good faith on behalf of the carrier. To date Richard has been available, a good communicator including with the environmental test consultant and storage provider both of whom appreciate his respectful negotiations. Richard is my trusted advocate. As a Stage 4 Cancer patient I believe Richard will ensure my "sick" home is made well so that I may once again safely reside in my community. The case is still in the process of being resolved and I am confident Richard will ensure a positive outcome.
