“Rick Nicotra has been a constant in my life the last several years as I’ve had the misfortune of being involved in multiple accidents. Due to some unfortunate personal circumstances, I did not follow through and quite frankly, did not think much about it. Rick called to advise me that he was trying to get a settlement. The case was resolved in short order. His compassion and understanding of my situation was truly touching. I will forever be grateful and will wholeheartedly recommend him if someone close to me ever needs an advocate.”

His staff is super friendly and always helpful with any questions or concerns that I had. Thank you, Rick, for all of your hard work in helping me through this difficult time.”

“Rick knows what he is doing! He fought with all he had for me. Got it settled before most do. My only complaint is how long it took. But a lawsuit isn’t a fast thing. And that’s not ricks fault! He is the best. And I highly recommend him if you really want a lawyer to get the most they can for you!”

I highly recommend Rick Nicotra and his services.”
