Rick’s comment: “This was the result of fighting hard for a client that was charged with a very serious crime and no one else would help. There were several fights with the court and prosecutor. In the end, Rick Poster successfully got this case dismissed and the client was free of all charges. Rick's success rate and superior client satisfaction speaks volumes. Avvos rating is shameful and does not reflect the superior quality of service earned. Rick fights when all others fail.”
