Rich has represented cases for me for more than 30 years.
He is honest, very knowledgeable, thorough, and dependable.
Rich and his staff keep in regular contact with clients, keeping them informed and up to date.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rich.

I have known Richard about 20 years not only as a friend but also as client. He has handled accident not only for me and also my wife. He is very pleasant and professional. During our cases he has always kept us updated.
We live in Graham, WA but it was worth the drive to his office.

Rich is one of the nicest guys I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. While genuinely looking out for my best interest over the span of 6+ months, he went way above and beyond to help me get back on my feet while taking almost all the stress of legal issues off my shoulders. I was originally only dealing with a property damage case, but while the case was being settled, Rich had already prepared for the potential medical portion. So, when I eventually found out I needed surgery, Rich already had all the necessary information which made things really smooth. When medical bills were stacking up and my insurance was running out, Rich was happy to offer to cover the cost to keep my insurance active. Much of the legal jargon involved with the insurance companies went way over my head; he thoroughly explained and answered every question I had in laymen's terms. The hospital and insurance company had a conflict of charges for my surgery, Rich simply worked out a compromise that was MORE than fair, and kept all involved parties happy in the end. He and Mary were excellent with communication so I was informed of every detail as the case went on. I am so pleased with how I was treated and how quickly things were worked out considering I was potentially looking at a lawsuit that would have taken years to settle. Instead, Rich worked everything out and was able to settle as quickly as the insurance would respond to his voicemails. I STRONGLY recommend working with Rich if you're looking to relieve the stress of any legal battle.

I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly as one of Gig Harbor's finest personal injury attorneys. My clients who have had injury claims consistently thanked me for referring them to Rich. His office staff makes him look very good ;), and his diligence really pays off $$ for his clients. 5 stars!
