RDDJ worked on my behalf as if I were the firm’s only client.

One moment Joe Espino was driving toward his destination; the next, a car from out of nowhere – hit by yet another car – hit Joe’s vehicle almost head-on. In seconds he was transformed from a healthy man to one with broken ribs; broken backbone; a bruised aorta; an open head wound; a broken toe; and more.

“They had to use the Jaws of Life to cut me out of my car,” he said. “When I woke up in the hospital I couldn’t feel my body; I thought I was paralyzed.”

He turned to Ritchie, Dillard, Davies & Johnson for representation because, quite literally, his future depended on the outcome. RDDJ, he said, “worked on my behalf as if I were the firm’s only client. What stood out to me was their honesty; due diligence; and that they put themselves in my circumstances and were very sensitive to my needs throughout the entire case. They spent time with me.”

RDDJ was able to settle Mr. Espino’s case before it went to trial. His confidence in his future was bolstered by the outcome. “The case was extremely important because of the long-term effects of the crash and the physical handicaps of my injuries and what I had to deal with long-term,” he said. “My work requires me to travel, and it can be painful.”
