In 1992, Richard took his first case against an insurance company to trial and was able to help his client, who was suffering soft tissue injuries from a low impact collision, receive a record breaking payment of $500,745.09. Since then, Richard has helped thousands of clients receive fair compensation for their injuries, both large and small. He understands that even soft tissue injuries from lower impact collisions can still result in lifetime pain and has helped many clients with these types of injuries receive their substantial six figure verdicts that they deserved. Richard's successes have earned him significant respect in the legal community. As a result of his success he has been asked to teach numerous Continuing Legal Education (CLE) classes for many legal education organizations including the Oregon State Bar and the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association. In these classes Richard has helped teach other Oregon lawyers how to improve their negotiation and trial skills. He has also spoken at Willamette University Law School and at the Oregon Doctors of Chiropractic (ODOC) convention. His article on combating the insurance medical examiners was published in TRIAL Magazine.
Rich's successes are a reflection of his passion for helping victims of accidents receive fair compensation for their injuries, no matter how big or small.
