Was the first time I ever had to seek legal representation after a car accident that I was injured in. Rich was recommended to me through a family member, and I am so glad that I decided to be represented by Rich.”
Nicole, Rhode Island
Rich was supportive and helpful throughout a very difficult time for me. I recently got into a car accident where I was injured and my car was declared totaled. In complete panic not knowing what to do, I called Rich.”

An inside advantage

Aside from Rich's legal experience, our firm also had the advantage of a senior paralegal who worked as a claims manager for a national insurance company for several years. This gave us a unique insight and a legal edge that other law firms cannot match. Rich has a comprehensive understanding of what insurance companies try to keep hidden during the claims process, which allows him to build the strongest case and seek maximum compensation for his clients.
