Prior to creating our firm, Robert Rikard and Peter Protopapas experienced the one-dimensional case management process that occurs in most law firms. With hopes of offering a different experience, they joined together and established a renewed level of service for their clients. Our team of professionals comes from many different areas of the law, but our passion for providing a personalized, thoughtful experience for every client unites us as a firm.

*The initial contact with our firm is free of charge. Once we review your information, we determine how to best proceed regarding your potential case. We offer several fee structures with many cases we handle being a contingency fee contract. That means we do not get paid until and unless our client makes a recovery. Generally, our fees will be a percentage of any recovery, and that percentage is computed before deducting expenses. Typically, the expenses are deducted from the settlement and reimburses our firm for any advanced expenses. Each matter is on a case-by-case basis and the fee structure is disclosed in writing if we proceed with your potential claim. We also represent clients on an hourly basis.

In any circumstance, the full details of the fee and cost agreement will be explained in detail and in a written fee agreement before we begin pursuing the potential claim.
