I totally recommend Richard. I couldn’t have been in better hands! I was very fortunate to have my chiropractor recommend Richard to me.
He was honest and upfront about all the possible outcomes and options in my situation. There were a lot of blanks in my case that I couldn’t fill in. It was a relief to have him on my side, as I no longer needed to worry about dealing with the difficult insurance companies. He explained the entire claim process in detail and answered all my questions in a fashion I could easily understand. My phone calls were answered immediately or returned promptly, and I never felt as if I was bothering him. I trusted him to take care of things, as well as keep me informed, which he did. Without his help I know I wouldn't have gotten fair treatment dealing with the insurance company on my own.
He was very easy to work with and I was pleased with the settlement he was able to get for me. I would recommend him to anyone. Richard would be my very first choice if I need legal help again.

We feel Richard Rizk, trustworthy very knowledgeable, if we need a lawyer we would hire him again.
Joel Mckaig, had a long term disability claim with Unum which was denied. Richard was able to settle the claim for $48,000 after filing suit against Unum.

I'd prefer to not provide details of my case, but Mr. Rizk did an outstanding job of listening and providing advise for how to proceed with my case. I did follow through and have Mr. Rizk represent me; and the results were just as we discussed. I'm very happy.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Attorney Richard Rizk and paralegal Don Nash for their tremendous work on a complex and challenging array of cases. I initially met Richard in the summer of 2011 after I had been involved in an on-the-job, no fault auto accident. As we neared close to settling the case, I was involved in a second and then a third on-the-job, no fault auto accident. Each time I was hit, my injuries worsened and my self-worth deteriorated. Richard was caring, skillful and assertive. He definitely has a strong understanding of insurance law and state law and knows the practices of powerful insurance firms. Richard and Don knew how to build the cases, how to negotiate the cases between the multiple insurance firms and in the end I received the compensation and justice I deserved.
Over the course of 3 ½ years of working with Richard Rizk and his team, I have personally observed Richard consistently demonstrate a keen intellect, sound reasoning, and objectivity along with an acute sense of fairness and equity. Richard Risk is professional, accomplished, skilled, honest, hardworking, and a qualified attorney that I am very grateful to have met and represent me during a difficult time in my life.
I definitely recommend speaking to Richard Rizk if you are injured in an accident. Richard has a plethora of knowledge and knowledge is power and power is having Richard Rizk on your side.

Mr. Rizk helped me with my short and long term disability claim against a large insurance company, who was also my employer. Mr Rizk was assertive, thorough, creative and caring. He helped me through one of the roughest times in my life and in the end I got the benefits and justice I deserved. There's no way I could have done it on my own, and it was worth having Mr Rizk represent me. I highly recommend Mr. Rizk and would absolutely use him again for any matter.
