From its inception, Robert Rivera Law’s purpose is to help those who are injured.
Insurance companies have a way of making an injured person feel like they are just a number, their pain does not matter, and their concerns are an irritant rather than something to be addressed. All too often, when the injured worker hires an attorney’s office, that attorney can also make them feel the same way as the insurance companies.
At Robert Rivera Law, we pride ourselves on making sure our clients feel heard. We want them to know they are not just another case number. We ensure their pain is not in vain and their claim is being fought for vigorously. We are honored when an injured person entrusts us to fight for them.
