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