This firm is fantastic. They made everything so easy and stayed in contact. Adam handled my case – if I could choose 2 words to describe him it would be intelligent and genuine.


Rick and Marty, along with their awesome staff, have been more than great help while handling multiple legal issues for me!


I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this law firm. They handled my husband’s car accident case with a lot of compassion and care. Rick came to the hospital the very same day of the accident and throughout the process, he took the time to listen to my family’s concerns. We truly felt like we didn’t have to worry about anything. I highly recommend Hessig and Pohl!
