— R.A.

Rizk Law provides you with valuable information to help you better understand issues involving motor vehicle injury and long term disability claims. Because, without expert help no one can effectively fight an insurance company army—especially while still traumatized by serious injury or long term disability.

Remember, insurance claims examiners are not your friend. To the contrary, insurance claims examiners are potential witnesses who may testify against you. On the other hand, insurers need certain information to process claims.

It’s a delicate balance. Even if you say all the right things, a claims examiner’s memory may differ from yours. And, winning a he /she said contest against an insurer is a steep uphill battle. Don’t go there. Richard Rizk can help.

Mr. Rizk knows how insurers think because, in a past life, he advised, represented and strategized for insurers and employers they insurer. Richard Rizk was the insurance company; he authorized large insurance checks and defended many of the big name insurers you see on TV. With the right attorney by your side, fear melts away.

Since 2002 Richard has directed his understanding of insurers’ tactics to help everyday people, like you. Mr. Rizk has effectively resolved automotive injury, environmental and long-term disability claims against America’s most powerful companies. His goal is successful resolution of your claim quickly and for the greatest amount possible.

Richard Rizk
Attorney at Law

“Helping Everyday People, Every Day” is not just a slogan. It is my passion. I seek justice for you, an injured and/or disabled person facing a powerful insurance company or employer. Why? Because helping folks in claim distress makes best use of my unique blend of insurance defense and inside claim handling experience. I worked for insurance companies or their law firms from 1990 to 2001. As a result, I know insurers and employers have great power and sometimes abuse that power. I now work to prevent that from happening.

I opened Rizk Law Offices in 2002. I have a big heart and insights only a former insurance attorney can have. Call me if you think I might be able to help you. – Richard H. Rizk
