Highly Recommended!

Mr. Rickman has handled several cases for me during the past two years. He has a personable character, direct approach with articulate delivery, and never leaves his client in the dark. He knows law and predicts the outcome; before court, a client can feel an ease and sense of knowing Anthony Rickman will be by your side and never mislead you–if leading anywhere, it’s to a WIN/DISMISSAL! If you must invest in an attorney, Mr. Rickman is worth it again and again. I will and do continue to recommend him to friends

Informative, and detailed.

I hired Mr. Rickman for 3 felony counts in which I was facing very serious repercussions. Through the whole case Mr. Rickman did a very good job of explaining things to me, giving me updates and keeping me calm. Not only did Mr. Rickman succeed in getting my charges dropped but he was also able to make me feel comfortable throughout the whole very scary process. I would recommend him to anyone and I am grateful for his services.

Job well done.

Anthony Rickman did an outstanding job as my attorney in a reckless driving situation. Anthony’s professionalism and dedication to work really made the court system process go smooth. I was communicated with on a regular basis about my case and that made me feel much better about what was going on. The fact that he took time to answer all of my questions was also important to me. I have personally recommended Anthony to my family and friends when they have needed legal council. Everyone has told me the same thing, “Anthony is a great guy and he did an excellent job with my case.” I highly recommend Anthony for any criminal defense/personal injury legal council.
