25 Years of Successful Practice in Phoenix

Richard Langerman
I am attorney Richard Langerman. I have been serving injured families and individuals in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Tempe and surrounding Arizona communities for more than a quarter of a century, and I’ve built a successful practice of proven results based on hard work, knowledge and thorough preparation.

 

Whether you have been injured by a medical product and want to make certain that you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries and damages, or you suspect that an insurance company is acting in bad faith, I can help.
