Richard Schrade was recommended to us by several friends and colleagues who spoke very highly of him. My husband and I had a difficult case which had been sabotaged by previous legal counsel. We immediately felt renewed hope after meeting Richard for a consultation. We appreciated Richards straight forward advice and opinion of what we could expect and he proved to be a man of his word. Furthermore we witnessed firsthand in court that Richard has an impeccable reputation of respect and high regard with fellow attorneys and the judges, that speaks volumes of his character! Richard not only proved to be an outstanding attorney he also proved to be a sincerely caring man with sincere compassion. Thank you Richard!
I had a child support case where I was clearly disabled and unable to pay, even though I had been paying something (thought not full amount) toward my case. My wife and I spent hours and hours collecting paperwork to prove my inability to work and figure out how to get my license re-instated and move forward with a modification.
We received no help from our attorney aside from an appearance at one court hearing, during which I never even had the opportunity to make my personal case to the judge.
My case has since been transferred to the county in which I live and at my very first meeting (no attorney needed) I was able to have my issue resolved indefinitely.
If anything, hiring an attorney, especially one so unfamiliar with this area of the law, probably caused more headaches and extended my problem for almost a year.
Thankfully I've been able to resolve this situation with the help of my spouse who, by the way, is not an attorney.

I recently retained Richard to represent me on an issue that was incredibly time-sensitive with potential implications that would have been extraordinarily damaging to many areas of my life. I was an absolute wreck when I called him. He responded immediately (even over a holiday weekend) and got to work on my issue right away. The matter was resolved in a matter of days, only because Richard went far above and beyond my expectations. I am a legal professional myself and have never worked with anyone else I would imagine giving the kind of time and personal attention that Richard gave to me during this monumentally difficult time in my life. The issue would likely have turned out much differently had I called anyone other than Richard. I truly cannot say enough good things about him. He is professional, incredibly knowledgable, has great working relationships with other lawyers and court personnel, is always kind and reassuring, and works harder than any other lawyer I know. He is a bulldog, plain and simple; and a FIERCE advocate for his clients. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know, without qualification. They simply don't come any better than Richard Schrade. I am forever indebted to him.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Schrade now for over 20 years. He is a GREAT LAWYER and that was what I was looking for. But what I found was more than that. I found a great friend and someone that if he believed in your case was a bulldog in the courtroom and would fight for you till the end. He would also tell you the truth and if you didn't have a case he would tell u that and let u make your mind up to go on or not. Richard is everything the rating system above is about. Excellent in all> Trustworthy, Responsive,Knowledgeable, and will kept you informed all the way till the end of your case. And at the end of your case you will have most likely end up with what I did for the last 20 years.

Richard helped me navigate a divorce which is a very emotional and life changing experience. I felt that he professionally guided me through the process and gave me good legal advice based on his experience. He was sympathetic to my needs and very accessible during the process. I would recommend him to anyone!

During a particularly unpleasant time in my life I had the opportunity to work with Richard Schrade. He was recommended by another attorney friend of mine. I met with him several times. He was always professional, caring and understanding. We discussed my case, and he never gave me any false hopes. In his laid back demeanor, he gave an excellent court presentation. The judge did not reach a verdict that day, but I did leave feeling good about the way I had been represented. We did find out later that the judge ruled in favor of our side. I have recommended Richard to anyone who has asked what attorney I used. I would recommend him to anyone who asks.

Excellent, knowledgable, fair ...a few words I would use to describe Richard Schrade. I would recommend Richard Schrade if you're in search of a divorce attorney. He was very thorough, caring, and sincere in taking me through one of the most difficult and emotional times of my life. He laid out all of the details (of the divorce process) in laymans terms and made good, fair, and sound recommendation based upon my situation. Richard Schrade is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend him!

Mr. Schrade represented me in a divorce case. He was always helpful and truthful and looked at both sides. He had my kids in mind and was very family oriented.

He answered all my questions I had for him. When I called with a question he responded that same day. He fought for me and had the best advice. I spoke to other lawyers in town and he was by far the better pic and other lawyers recommended him. I would use him again if I had to.

I had never been involved in any court proceedings and had absolutely no experience with court systems in general. Richard represented me while I was being prosecuted(unfairly) by the State of GA for two bogus charges related to a repossession I performed for the company I worked for. He came highly recommended by the legal department in my former company(Enterprise Rent-a-Car) and he did everything he could legally do to make sure the outcome of my case was what I expected. He explained the process of what each step meant, we went over scenarios of what could happen in each stage, and other legal steps. He was extremely friendly, honest, caring, and he listened to what I said. All charges were dropped due to his diligence and even though the prosecutor relentlessly tried to get me to accept a plea, he strongly encouraged me to keep fighting. He is now a contact in my phone book and I know I could call him at any time to represent me in the future. (Even though I hope I never will).
