Our Testimonials

Hear From Our Happy Clients

  • "Rick Hovde answered all my questions & concerns throughout the whole process."
    I was very pleased with the outcome of my lawsuit and I want to thank my attorney Rick Hovde and his associate Kelly Faulk both for answering all my questions and concerns. I would recommend them and their law firm to anyone who might need their services. Thanks again.

  • "This is an exceptional law firm!"
    I was severely injured by a metal-on-metal hip implant. I needed a lawyer willing and capable to go up against the corporate Goliath, Smith & Nephew. After writing and calling various attorneys across the country who claimed in their TV advertisements to be powerful law firms willing to take on Smith & Nephew, but apparently were too busy to personally talk to me by phone and were unimpressive in their return letters, I became very discouraged. Time is a huge issue with injury cases like mine. My main concern was finding a lawyer that would not “rip me off”, waste my time and incompetently ruin my limited opportunity. After hours of research, I found an article about an outstanding victory a law firm had obtained in dealing with the very same medical company that had injured me. I was amazed to learn that the winning law firm, Hovde Dassow & Deets, was located in my own home city of Indianapolis. This proved a God-send. My first meeting with Nicholas Deets restored my hope. I appreciated Nick’s candor as he assessed my case. His confidence seemed quite genuine and I left feeling very encouraged… and counting on him. As he had advised me, I would need to be patient; these things take time. He was right. But in the end, facing a powerful multinational medical-technology company, Nick Deets prevailed as a most EFFECTIVE victor on my behalf. By his skill, resources, and experience Nick made particular winning moves… and I was amazed at what he delivered! My settlement exceeded my most hopeful expectation!

    I am truly grateful to Nick Deets, who proved himself to be a highly capable, trustworthy, outstanding attorney. This is an exceptional law firm.
