Client Reviews
Rose B. May 3, 2021
Professional and effective I was involved in a car accident case, in 2017, where I was rear ended. Sam Pope, at the Rizk Law Firm, was the attorney helping me with this case. He is very professional and honest. Mr Pope gave me the opportunity to sit in on the defendant’s deposition, which I found very enlightening. Then it was my turn for a deposition. Mr Pope was much more prepared for this meeting than the defendant’s team. He was calm, respectful, yet determined to bring into the open the information needed from the defendant. He possesses good communication, people, analytical, listening, and negotiation skills. I learned this would have been a much easier case had I sought care from a regular medical doctor from the beginning, instead of spending my PIP on chiropractor, acupuncture, and massage therapy. Not that I believe there is anything wrong with those modalities. I’m not sure if I would have had better relief from the pain and suffering I experienced had I taken a different medical route yet an MRI and medical evaluation would have helped a lot, case wise. Bottomline, and in the end, the defendant rear ended me and I received two settlements: the first from the defendant’s insurance company, and the second from my own insurance. I would highly recommend Sam Pope for your legal needs. His expertise and recommendations proved valuable to me.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Bought a house seller won't leave
A: Unfortunately, you have no leverage, because there is not any money in escrow. You should probably speak to a lawyer and move forward with eviction or whatever that lawyer suggests.
Q. Can I sue the other driver of a car that hit mine?
A: Depending on how long ago this was, you probably can bring a lawsuit. I would suggest speaking with a lawyer that handles car crash cases.
Q. I need help with my injury case that was poorly mismanaged.
A: It's not entirely clear to me if your case has been settled yet, or not. If it has already settled and all that is left to do is to agree to the language in the release and sign it - at that point it will be difficult, likely impossible, to renegotiate the settlement. You can certainly complain to the State Bar's website, but you might have better luck trying to work things out with your attorney. Some attorneys are willing to reduce their fee if a client is unhappy. You might consider mentioning everything that you just listed here to your attorney, and reiterate that you want to talk to your attorney before you sign the release. The attorney might offer to reduce his fee. If he doesn't, you could bring it up. He should certainly provide you with the original fee agreement that you signed when you came on as a client, if you request that. I hope this was helpful. Good luck.
