When my case was tried I was a juvenile. I had really messed up and Rick helped me through it. I remember he told me "no matter what happends you will make it through this and you will be ok". Yes he is an amazing lawyer and he really pulled some strings for me but I will always think of him as a friend outside of the court room. He helped me try to become a better person and with that said he is the ONLY lawyer I would ever use. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!
