Thanks for checking me out on Avvo.  When I am not working I enjoy fishing in Baja California, hunting for fossils in various locales, 10 mile hikes in Quicksilver County Park, household projects, outdoor projects, watching good shows and, the best of all, time with my wife and my son.

Great Lawyer
First time needing a lawyer for a complicated personal injury claim. He was very patient and clearly explained every step. Even after he relocated out of the area, he still came to San Jose whenever necessary. If I am ever in another situation where I need a lawyer, I will reach out to Jeff in the hope that he can assist me.

Excellent personal injury attorney
I hired Mr. Rickard to handle my elderly mother's injury from a car hitting her. Mr. Rickard was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and handled the matter expeditiously. My mother was very pleased with the resolution of her case. I would recommend Mr. Rickard to others.

Outstanding, Knowledgeable, and Friendly
Had an accident involving a head injury years ago and Mr. Rickard was incredibly helpful. This is someone who will absolutely do everything he possibly can for you. Very honest and makes you feel like you have an arsenal with him rather than feeling unarmed in your battles alone.

Excellent Attorney
I originally hired a different attorney but after 3yrs of my old attorney not making any head way with my case I hired Mr. Rickard. He worked on a flat fee so there were no surprises and got my case settled within a couple a weeks!!! He kept me informed and was always available if I had a question or concern. If I ever have a need for an attorney I will defiantly be calling Mr. Rickard and I will defiantly recommend him.

I've been very happy with the results Jeff has given me on my current case. It's been resolved quickly.
Jeff is working on 2 cases of mine, one of which has been resolved in the matter of a few weeks. He is very personable, professional, and helps you to make smart, educated decisions. I definitely recommend him to anyone that has a case that'd need to be handled well.

Lawyer with a heart
Jeff was extremely helpful through this unfamiliar process. His focus was on my daughter and what was right for her. He worked diligently to ensure she received as much as possible. He truly cared about his client.

Mr Rickard was very thorough and well versed and well connected in obtaining a very satisfactory settlement for us. He communicated with me frequently and in terms I understood. Very personable. Took time to explain each step in the process.

Jeff Rickard
Jeff was recommended to me by another local attorney. Due to my case involving my minor child, Jeff was extremely thorough about explain the laws to me. Adult cases vs. minor cases are very different.

Someone you can Trust
A friend of mine and her elderly husband needed the assistance of a local attorney who had experience in dealing with bodily injury claims in Santa Clara County. After vetting out several other attorney's, we chose Mr. Rickard to represent my friends husband. We can state without equivocation that Mr Richard and his staff were conscientious, thorough, technically skilled with a bedside manner that was always gentle, in spite of being challenged by a grumpy old man whose wife speaks English as a second language My friend sustained an injury in a church parking lot, there were bodily injuries as a result of the incident. To complicate matters, my friend had pre-existing medical conditions not related to the accident that needed to be sorted out with the insurance carrier and their claims adjuster. The end result of many months of diligent effort on the part of Mr Rickard and his team was a settlement that was equitable, was delivered as promised, with all parties being satisfied with the outcome.

We appreciate you
My wife and I experienced a tragic event, an event of such sorrow that our ability to think clearly was difficult. We found it necessary to hire an attorney to help us work through that tough time and indeed it was a difficult time, but knowing who to hire was a problem. You see, it had to be someone who had strong skills and knew all the “nuts and bolt” of the legal system but also someone with a heart, someone who listened, someone who cared and someone we would never forget. Jeff is that attorney, and we know he will be there for you too, with integrity, honesty and most of all caring; thanks Jeff for helping us we appreciate you.

A Great Experience
Mr. Rickard was an exceptional lawyer and made our experience a positive one. The case we came to Mr. Rickard for was to represent our 9 year old daughter. He made us feel welcome and supported from the minute we made contact with him. He was kind and friendly to our daughter and made her feel at ease immediately upon meeting with him. He guided us through the entire process in a professional, yet compassionate way. I would highly recommend Mr. Rickard with full confidence that he would do an outstanding and upstanding job.

Personal Injury Case Involving an Automobile Accident
We lost our daughter in a auto accident due to others' negligence. Jeff was assigned to us and handled almost every aspect of the case, including the day-to-day issues. He was thorough, informative, and always there. He handled our case superbly and gave us the feeling that something was being done and that we would be fully satisfied when the case was completed, which we were. We would recommend Jeff to anyone without any reservations.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Rickard's knowledge, experience and caring came together as he walked our family through a difficult situation. This was our first time needing a lawyer and we were still in the midst of dealing with injury recovery. We are so glad we entrusted our case to Jeff and his team. We highly recommend him to whoever has a need.
