“Our experience with the Anderson & O’Brien law firm began after I was in a serious automobile accident. We contacted the firm and were put in touch with Attorney Rich Fuller. From that day on, we knew we were in good hands. My injuries were so severe that I had to have two surgeries to fuse my cervical spine. Ultimately our case went to a jury trial. Rich and his team were amazing. They were all thorough, professional, and knowledgeable. Rich included us in every aspect of the case right from the beginning. Rich always had time to explain what was happening or answer any of our many questions. It was clearly important to him that we always knew what was happening and what to expect. His communication was exceptional through ALL stages of the process over the five years we worked with him. We were always a part of the team. I cannot describe how thankful we are to Rich for the personal sacrifices he made in order to help us ultimately win our case.” E.P.
“Attorney Fuller represented us in a Personal Injury case that took five years to work through the system. In addition to his excellent understanding of the law, he is an effective litigator and was able to secure for us a substantial verdict that will cover future medical expenses. What I found refreshing about our interaction with Attorney Fuller is his demeanor. He always treated us with respect, was candid on expectations, communicated effectively and worked diligently on the case for five years. I would recommend him to anyone involved in a Personal Injury case.” J.P.
“Attorney Fuller represented me in a Personal Injury case. It was amazing how well Attorney Fuller could identity what were my needs and concerns. I had a motorcycle accident and this resulted in a broken back and back surgery. I remember my first meeting with Attorney Fuller: I was experiencing pain, fear, confusion, and made the statement “I do not know why I am here nor do I know what questions to ask you.” He was so understanding and reassured me he was available to assist me through this experience. He was never pushy-quite the contrary-very understanding and very patient. Our first several meeting were short and sweet as he was aware of the discomfort I felt. Gradually we were able to meet for longer periods of time. He showed compassion with every meeting. He was truly concerned about my health and welfare. He made suggestions but always gave me the option to make the final decisions.
He has professional integrity. He would explain to me what I did not understand until I understood what was being said. I never felt rushed and never felt like I was many of his clients-he treated me individually in a very respectful and professional manner. He is a very patient man. He is a very humble man. He is not the Attorney who is doing this as a job for his personal gain-he is doing this job cause he wants to do what is right. He was always prepared and I never felt I had to review my case with him because he had forgotten who I was. He reviewed the past, dealt with the present and prepared me for the future. Thank you Attorney Fuller.” G.I.
