"Top notch quality service is provided by this great team. Alan Ripka has helped myself and my family in representing us in our unfortunate accident cases. Alan and his great staff make you feel secured that you are being taken care of. Professionalism is key and this firm exudes it. I am thankful and I appreciate everything that this firm has provided me."
"If you are looking for an attorney who is not just in it for the money and treats every client like a family member, with compassion and professionalism, then look no further.  Alan Ripka represented me for a medical malpractice case, he was with me every step of the way, guided me through every specialist appointment and was always available when I had a question  or concern.  I highly recommend Alan and his team if you should ever need an outstanding attorney.  I have recommended him many times and I believe those who have been represented by Alan will all agree, he is the best of the best."
"I recommend attorney Alan Ripka to anyone in search of a professional and highly skilled attorney! He is a consummate professional Years ago, I was a pregnant victim who was neglected at the hospital during the birth of my son which caused birth defects.  I was referred to Alan to represent me and my son.. The whole team is beyond friendly & knowledgeable. They are wonderful people who are prompt, detailed, and personal with answers. Because this was a medical case, Alan did a great job of making the medical terminology of their words understandable to me and kept fighting for a good settlement instead of going the easy route. Alan was always responsive to my calls, does frequent updates to let me know how my case is progressing and copies me on important correspondences.  His primary focus is helping me get the best results I can get and secondary to this, getting compensated for my son's injury from being neglected during birth.  He is the one to call if you want a skilled and aggressive professional representing you. He fought for years - never giving up, to ensure we receive the settlement my son deserves."
"Best Lawyer For me was the guy who help me with my injuries to get them fixed And got me the money I deserve for them I thankful for his help and his capacity to get the job done."
"When hit by an MTA bus while standing on a New York sidewalk I suddenly became part of a system that both tries to just deny anything went wrong and then makes it so difficult to pursue justice that it's easier to just go away (or at best settle) however what this defendant did not know was Alan Ripka was kind enough to take my case. His ability to deal with everyone in the courthouse from the Judges to the officers handling simple paperwork is amazing to witness. Even more spectacular was watching him prepare for trial including carefully picking a Jury while continuing to negotiate a possible deal. I truly felt like his dominance in every aspect of my case from beginning to end resulted in not $1 cent being left on the table. Alan is one of the very few in any profession that is the very best at what he does. It is a gift that cannot be taught in any law school & any plaintiff is guaranteed to be in the best of hands."
"Finding the right Attorney is a very difficult choice.    I can tell you that i made the best decision for me and my family by using Alan Ripka.   I have known Alan now for many years.   He's an incredibly professional and has been successful for me on two separate cases.   He is simply the best Attorney and i can't speak highly enough about him.   He works tirelessly and has done a fantastic job for me and my family.    You wont find a better Attorney."
"My wife suffered a terrible illness due to a physician's negligence. No other attorney would take the case. Alan Ripka not only took the case, but he prevailed against a major hospital. Alan Ripka is the attorney you want on your side in a dispute."
"Great lawyer! Was able to get a much larger settlement than expected! His paralegal Wanda Rivera was more than helpful. Was very happy to have found a very smart and savvy lawyer. Thank you Alan!"
"Alan Ripka & Associates was recommended to me by my brother as they have been representing my family for over a decade now.  In regards to my case I was very pleased with them, they answered my concerns and educated me on the circumstances surrounding my case (i had many questions and concerns every step of the way), which they handled until the very end with an amazing level of commitment and i was greatly satisfied with the end results.  Alan and his very experienced team will continue to be the firm that I will choose to represent me and my family. We will continue to trust their expertise in the legal process while appreciating the special level of care and understanding they provide during some of the most vulnerable points of our lives. We were able to begin piecing our lives together once more after having a life altering accident and it was greatly due to their efforts.."
