Highly Recommended for DUI
I hired Rick to represent me for my DUI charges and he did an excellent job from start to finish. He listened to my concerns, was very thorough in collecting information and finding the right path forward, and worked well with the prosecutor and judge to ensure the best outcome for me. I couldn’t be happier with his representation and highly recommend him to anyone dealing with a DUI.

Business Dispute
I had a business dispute with a landlord from a restaurant I had. I originally had retained another attorney who completely botched the case up, badly enough to where he eventually was disbarred (another story). Richard was recommended to me and after our first consult, I was convinced I would at least be treated fairly. Richard took the case on and I was extremely impressed with the thoroughness of his preparation and how well he negotiated with not only the opposing counsel but the rather irritated judge who was fed up with the antics of the previous attorney. The case was settled in a very satisfactory manner and I wound up bringing him into yet another case for a company that I currently manage. His handling of that case has totally sold both myself and the owners of my company and we would highly recommend Richard Strohm. In addition, he is extremely fair with his billing and very open with case direction and potential cost, offering all the options that make it the best outcome for the investment.

30 Year Client
I needed an attorney 30 years ago as I was accused of domestic violence and arrested. Richard came to meet with me and extract me immediately. He listened to the circumstances and walked me through the process to a successful conclusion of "not guilty". Only 2 years ago I was arrested for felony speeding. Richard went to court with me and successfully negotiated a plea bargain which included no jail time and no fine. I have referred Richard to dozens of individuals needing legal help over the years and each one of them thanked me for the referral.

Intelligent, Kind, Highly Competent
Mr. Strohm was my attorney for case many years ago, and his legal advocacy was the reason for our prevailing in our case. He is unfailingly responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for my friends or family.

Richard helped me with my auto accident. I was rear ended by a young girl who had minimum insurance. He helped me get a settlement. He was very familiar with working with insurance companies and knew exactly what to do. I would highly recommend him as he is kind and super smart!

Every once in a while we meet someone who is extraordinary in his/her field. If we happen to meet someone like that in law when we need a lawyer, we count ourselves blessed. I counted myself blessed when I met Rick Strohm!

Accessible, experienced and compassionate.
My husband and I have known Rick for more than twenty years. On the occasions when we have needed his help and advice, he has always given above and beyond. Rick gives much of his time explaining, in detail, the possible approaches and outcomes of any undertaking. He doesn't sugar-coat anything, and will let you know EXACTLY what your options are. His vast experience allows his clients to consider what they hadn't even thought of before, and then to have a plan as to how to proceed. There is no gray area, no hidden legal agenda with Rick - he is a 100% straight shooter.

Painfully bright lawyer
I've worked with Rick for thirteen years and he's never lost a case of mine. I've sent numerous referrals to him and he's successfully litigated every one delivering stellar results regardless of the complicated disputes. There isn't a finer lawyer in town. He's painfully sharp, cuts through legal battles like a hot knife through butter and delivers white glove service to every client he meets. His impeccable reputation is second to none and his airtight logic paves the legal road in which to travel. He goes above and beyond in providing sage advice and brilliant strategy when it comes to legalities. Rick easily pirouettes between personal injury, commercial litigation and criminal defense. Rick is to law what Zhu Yuan Zhang was to Ming's dynasty. There are pat ways of doing business and then there is Strohm's way. Pros don't feel ruffled; they're serene and his powerful prowess in the courtroom is deliberate and effective. He has earned the respect of his peers, clients and the court not just through litigation skills but his compassion and integrity for each party involved. On a personal note he's a triathlete which tells you about his desire to stay fit, disciplined and competitive. He's not just a force; he's a movement.

Outstanding-Personable Attorney
Rick Strohm has advised me (and my husband) on business-related matters dating back to 2010. He is just outstanding to work with - trustworthy, straightforward, and smart. He explains legal concepts in accessible terms. He also has a calming presence. Specifically, he does an excellent job of removing emotion from the conversation in an effort to focus on the facts and what can be done. Also, while Rick has never represented me in litigation, I have no doubt that his likeable personality is an asset in a courtroom. Above all, Rick seems to really care, not just about the outcome of a legal matter, but about his clients as people. I feel very lucky that I have Rick Strohm "in my corner" as a business owner and I've grown to see him as a friend through the years. Hire Rick to help you navigate your legal needs. You'll like working with him and like getting to know him as a person.

There are none better . . .
What's truly important in winning the battle? Experience. Rick has represented me in two cases thus far. After hearing Rick's argument, I have never seen the other side fold up and go home .... never. On both accounts. No return fire. Just, "Can we have a moment with our client?" And they come back with an offer. If they had a white flag to wave, they would have waved it. The other thing? Honesty. Not the candy coated kind, but the brutal kind. Rick's brilliant. He will walk you thru the process before you even start. Let you know what your chances are and where he will excel. It's like reading the book before you see the movie. Amazing. And he has been "spot on" on every account. Why? Because he has seen it all before. Nothing is new and he understands the nuance of every character involved. The last thing? His rates are fantastic. You are getting the expertise and experience of a big market lawyer (like New York or L.A.) at a reasonable price. And with no surprises. Most talk it. This guy walks it.

Rick Strohm is an A+ Litigator!
Rick represented us in a challenging case and I can't say enough positive things about him. He is straight-forward, honest, hard working, and a brilliant litigator and trial attorney. I would highly recommend him.
