Rick slways gave us the time and attention we required, responding in detail to any questions and concerms that we had. He is very knowledgable and very professional and handled himself very well on our behalf during our court appearance. Most of all Rick helped us to feel secure and confident throughout a very challenging experience. As a result of Rick’s efforts our experience became a positive one.
