We used Richard Kelly to purchase our first home. I have to say that from the very beginning it was very hard to get hold of him (even before we hired him it took him days to return our calls, prompting him to ask us if we still want to hire him!!). Very hard to get information from him, he even refused to send us the papers before we went to closing to avoid questions (well, there were mistakes in calculating fees which we found at closing). After the deal was done we had questions about some assessments, but for him the deal was done, he was again not to be found. I would definitely not use nor recommend him.

Mr. Kelly is outstanding real-estate attorney. This was our second time using him to purchase our home. Not only was he on point with closing dates and making closing convenient for us with our work scheduled; he was detailed and commitment to us as clients. He goes above and beyond anyone else we have used in the past. Mr. Kelly was even helpful to us after the closing giving us legal advice . Would recommend him to anyone. GREAT GREAT SERVICE!!!!

My fiancee and I retained Mr. Richard Kelly when we were purchasing our first home. We needed a lawyer that was knowledgeable and well versed on all aspects of real estate law. Mr. Kelly came highly recommended and he has an outstanding reputation. At closing Mr. Kelly made sure we understood every document that was presented to us. We were able to ask as many questions as we needed and he addressed every concern we had. He always had our best interest at heart and was an advocate for our rights. Mr. Kelly made sure that we recieved the best experience possible during this very important time. We had a flawless experience working with Mr. Kelly and we highly recommend him. He is trustworthy and very knowledgeable and has been so helpful with getting us into our first home, and because of that we are extremely grateful.

I called Mr. Kelly, and he responded to my email even though it was after hours. He was courteous, and very knowledgeable. With Mr. Kelly our first home purchase was smooth, and we felt that we had someone who would tell us the truth, and recommend the best course of action, if we were uncertain. We were prepared at every step of the process, thanks in part to Mr. Kelly's support and advice.

The last question asked above is "Would I recommend this lawyer?" Well I would, and already have. Twice. In a month.
Richard Kelly was what I wanted in a lawyer and more. I wanted to know that I had a lawyer that knew what he was doing and had the experience to get me what I needed, and he did that. He was very responsive, responding to emails very quickly. The best part was that I felt comfortable by how RDK spoke with me and explained things to me. I hired a lawyer to represent me. I don't need to know the jargon, or the ins and outs of the deal, that is what he is for. The lawyer represent you and makes sure your best interests are taken care of. Richard Kelly could not have been any better.

Richard was the best part about purchasing our new home (well aside from actually closing on it). He is one of those attorneys who "has your back". At no point did we ever feel he wasn't looking out for our best interests or wasn't on top of the legal aspects of buying our house.
Getting to our closing was not easy and Richard was there every step of the way. He answered questions and took phone calls over weekends and even on his days off.
There is a reason why you hire someone with extensive experience and Richard is that person.
My only worry is that Richard will retire before we buy our next house and need him again.

Richard was the consummate professional throughout my home purchase. He was very patient, understanding and most notably, very thorough and knowledgeable which is especially required when coordinating all aspects of a real estate transaction.

Richard was very helpful throughout the whole process. He was very quick to respond to any of our questions and was there to support us every step of the way. He was very patient and calming when we were very stressed out, and took the time to explain everything, being this was the purchase of our first home. He came highly recommended to me, and I highly recommend him to anyone.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr. Richard Kelly. He is very down to earth and easy to work with. He always makes time to explain everything thoroughly and gives you options when things arise during your process. Whenever I had a question he always returned my call that day or emailed me back. With the times that we are in, it is very comforting to be able to communicate with your attorney, and know that he has your best interests in mind.
At one point during the process I thought that we would lose our home. Richard was always there by my side talking to me like I was his own daughter. It's very rare to speak with an attorney like that. I've worked in a few law firms and I can say that they tend to stick by the book and only the book. Unlike Richard who is concerned with his clients first and foremost.
During our closing my boyfriend and I were alone with Richard signing the papers. Which was the best thing because Richard was cracking us up with all of his jokes and made that day a wonderful experience that I will never forget.
Buying and selling a home is extremely emotional and tiring process. Choosing the right people to keep around you is also a tiring process. We feel very lucky to have come across Richard Kelly.
If you want the best down to earth individual that you put themselves in your shoes during your process and treat you with the ultimate respect then the only person you should use is Mr. Richard Kelly.
