    Rick is an absolute diamond in the ruff! Not only is he THE subject matter expert on steroid law but he also genuinely cares about his clients and their families. I'm not sure how he does it, but he always immediately returns calls and e-mails. We had an especially complex case that was headed for a disastrous end, until Rick stepped in. The most important lesson this case taught me is that having a great attorney is absolutely critical. There is no one I would recommend more than Rick Collins! Read less
