  • Larry Henry Bowen

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Richard for three decades and have had numerous cases with him on the other side. I find him to be among the best of the best.

  • Sharon Voyles Filipour

    I endorse this lawyer. We were on opposite sides of a very sad and contentious appeal several years ago. He was the last of a long list of lawyers to represent his client while I was the only lawyer to represent mine. I was impressed that he was far more able to see the "big picture" and far more practical and compassionate with his own client than any of his predecessors seemed to have been, while still providing excellent legal services for him. I came to wish he had been hired earlier and I feel sure his own client must have had the same wish by the time it was over.
