Litigation Attorney | Mar 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Rick's a fine lawyer and advocate that gets results. Rick and I worked together on a complex banking case and against tough odds the outcome was a huge victory for our clients. Rick is also damn funny and has an encyclopedic recall of obscure b-grade comedies, especially from the 80s, which can be very amusing in difficult times."
