    As an attorney in the area, I have had the distinct pleasure of working alongside and in opposition to Richard. He is a fantastic attorney, well-versed in the law, technical, yet has a creative mind - offering unique solutions to his clients - that are truly beneficial to reaching their goals. For close friends, relatives, existing clients and new clients, I never hesitate to recommend Richard as the premier real estate attorney in the area.
