    TESTIMONIALS

    • “I would single him out as a wonderful leader.”

      -Chambers 2012

    • "Rik Tozzi attracts praise for his trial skills.  He has been involved in a number of consumer cases, such as acting . . . in a matter brought by the City of Birmingham against various mortgage companies seeking damages for alleged violations of the federal Fair Housing Act."

      -Chambers 2010

    • “As a banker working out troubled loans, I really appreciated Keith's ability to help me with my legal issues, but I really valued his ability to help me understand the full spectrum of responses available to me as well as describe the pros and cons of each option. Keith's value as an attorney is amazing, but is far surpassed by his ability as a trusted advisor.”
