Richard really helped me out when I was hurt and could not work during the peak season in Gulf Shores. I would have been evicted from my apartment if Richard had not stepped into my life. He was kind, compassionate and really cared about how I was doing. I will recommend him to anyone needing an excellent personal injury lawyer.
