5.0/5.0 by a Private Individual on 08/02/16

I am forever indebted to Ernest Ricci for his drive and determination to help my family in a lawsuit that was tearing us apart financially and emotionally. He recognized this distress and made the final push to counsel, persist and finish a trying time for all of us. He was able to listen and “talk us off the ledge”, make recommendations and follow through to the finish line of a three year ordeal. I recommend him highly for his intelligence, intuitiveness, calm demeanor and follow through.
