    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have personally have benefited from his professional assistance on two occasions.

    Richard is very knowledgeable in the area of elder care and medical malpractice. His guidance and professional knowledge led to an equitable settlement agreement whereby significant organizational changes occurred with the care provider, including a change of facility administrators, and two changes of the floor managing nurse. The settlement, financially, was more than adequate. the settlement was reached in such a way as to not disrupt the on-going care our relative was receiving at the facility.

    He is also very helpful in regards to litigation involving a State of Georgia entity. He provided valued assistance during communications between a committee I served on and their interactions with the State of Georgia.
