Client Testimonials

Habush Habush and Rottier: The very best law firm around for auto accident cases. They have your back from start to finish, no matter the time it takes to complete your case. I knew nothing about this law firm prior to my initial consultation other than the fact that my father spoke so highly of them; as he eloquently put it they’ve been ranked as the best of the best in law firm surveys. My father said, this top-notch caliber law firm is where other attorneys would go for representation or advice, that’s how good they are. My father was right on this advice, thank you, dad!
Takes a fraction of time to change someone’s life forever for worse or for better. In my case, it was from an auto accident that I found my hero at HHR who helped me beyond words of gratitude on the long road of healing. Believe me, it can often feel like a lonely road to walk but with the right support, it makes every step of the journey that much easier to navigate. From my experience, HHR vigorously turned over every stone to make it right. To the best attorney I know, Eric Ryberg! Please ask for Eric by name and when you meet tell him Brandon from the review suggested his service, and share a smile because you’re in good company.
I wrote this review from the bottom of my heart from one auto accident victim to another, focus on your recovery and let HHR focus on the rest. Like the Prairie du Sac Dam regulates water flow, HHR will keep you informed in a timely manner about your case with a steady flow of the utmost important information. This way you’re informed without being overwhelmed. The best way others can thank me with gratitude for my fatherly advice is to share your experience from HHR and together we will ensure that help gets to those involved in an accident.

Eric was an excellent lawyer. There wasn’t much money in my case, but that didn’t stop Eric from fighting for me. He was very knowledgeable and was always prepared for anything the opposing side threw at us. I was very pleased and happy with the outcome. I would recommend Eric 100 times over. I had such a great experience and I cannot thank him enough for doing a great job with my case.

I had planned to interview several attorneys at different firms. However, I interviewed Eric Ryberg first and it was clear I needed to look no further. Eric was friendly, accessible, and knowledgeable. I received straightforward, clear communication from start to finish. Eric patiently prepared me for my deposition, and I had a lot of questions! I was relieved to have Eric in my corner and had total confidence in him. Hopefully, I don’t need a personal injury attorney again, but if I do, Eric will be my choice. I can’t recommend Eric highly enough.

In the aftermath of a significant life-changing “not at fault” motor vehicle accident, there were many times of darkness, confusion, self-doubt, and feelings of injustice. Attorney Eric Ryberg and the staff at Habush Habush & Rottier were a bright light in that dark corner. A light to illuminate the pathway to justice, fairness, and common sense in a world where it seems more difficult to find truth and benevolence in all of life’s happenings and experiences. Truth. Justice. Fairness. Common sense. Genuine. These words are at the core of the structural foundation of the expert legal representation I received from Attorney Eric Ryberg and his team on my behalf. They fought for these things relentlessly and never gave up. Never compromised the fight for justice, fairness, or common sense. And because of this, they were able to deliver redemption and justice to the very maximum limit allowed by law. Never give up. Never settle for anything less than the absolute truth. Never settle for anything but absolute justice. Never settle for legal representation from just any law firm. Choose Habush Habush & Rottier. Choose Eric Ryberg. Experience the light in the darkness. The light that leads to absolute truth. And uncompromised justice.
