I am a legally blind Marine Corps veteran who resides in the Palm Springs California area. I became injured and my HMO primary care doctor delayed referring me to a specialist. So I did not receive timely standard care and had permanent damage to my hand. Linda met with me and decided to take my case.
Linda did an outstanding job of reviewing my case in order to see the merits and who we should sue. She decided against suing the hospital emergency room because they were not at fault. I thought this was a wise decision.
I was quite nervous about doing a deposition because I cannot see very well. I could not read or review evidence by myself and I could not see the defendant’s lawyer. Linda was very helpful to me during this process.
Linda asked me to meet with a hand expert in Los Angeles. This doctor was brilliant and his testimony at the trial was spectacular. Linda also deposed witnesses that testified on my behalf. I was very impressed with her knowledge of medical terms and medical procedures. Linda was very thorough in deposing the defendant’s.
My case took a very long time to go to trial. Linda did everything reasonable to speed up the court calendar. She never wavered in her support of my strong desire to obtain justice.
Linda is one of the best trial lawyers in California. I used to work for the Ventura County Superior court so I have been in many court rooms. Linda did a superb job of selecting a jury. Her opening and closing remarks to the jury were brilliant. She asked concise and proper questions to the witnesses and defendant’s who testified at the trial. The jury seemed to like Linda and believed in her presentation.
Before the trial I was asked to review my deposition. I was unable to do this because of my poor vision. Linda had my deposition converted using computer software for blind people. In this manner my computer spoke to me and I could listen to my deposition. This was extremely helpful to me.
I was very nervous when it came my time to testify at the trial. I could not see the judge or the jury. I could not see the defendant’s lawyer. He tried to bully me and Linda objected. She calmed me down so I could share my personal story. She was great.
We won our case in 2008 and it was the first time a plaintiff had won a medical malpractice suit in Riverside County for a long time. I quickly received compensation for my injury.
I think Linda Rice is one of the finest attorneys in the United States. I highly recommend her law firm to potential clients. I am willing to talk with anyone about her professional ability.
