I called Dick today for a first consultation about a real estate matter and he was knowledgeable, personable and wonderfully human. At the end of the call, I expected a pitch to hire him for the resolution of my situation, but instead he recommended I seek another lawyer, one based in Brooklyn (since that's where the property is located). I told him the property was in Brooklyn at the start of the call, so I was stunned to realize he had spent his time advising me with no thought of future return and felt the least I could was write this review in appreciation. Thanks again, Dick!
