In re the Marriage of Deborah Lynn O'Meara and George James O'Meara

"…We researched the field of available experts whom we could utilize in both a consultant and Jehovah Witness capacity relating to the issue of mind control, the visitation…. After significant investigation, we lucked upon Rick Ross. I spent numerous hours with Rick discussing the strategy and philosophy of our lawsuit…consultant; he became my teacher in the case."

"…Rick's insight and maturity was invaluable in preparing the case. I also attribute my success in settling the case in a way which I believe was favorable to my client in great part to Rick. He was qualified as an expert by the Court and clearly would have testified had the case gone to trial."
