Attorney Grossman recently represented my son in a criminal case. He made the proceedings easy to understand and advised us every step of the way. We listened and followed his advice and my son managed to keep his record clean and charges were dropped. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Mr. Grossman recently represented me after I was arrested for drug charges. And unlike a lot of other lawyers that I observed, he did exactly everything he said he would do. There was no dishonesty or stringing along like I expected and he was very knowledgeable about everything I was experiencing. My fiance was also arrested with me and he had a not so great public defender so I got to experience lawyers from both ends of the spectrum and Mr. Grossman is definitely the best of the best. And even though he didn't have to, he would often give me advice and insight in my fiance's case as well since his lawyer wasn't always so helpful. Although having a good lawyer is very, very expensive Mr. Grossman worked with us as much as he could and it was worth every penny. He also just always seemed like he cared about my well being. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal services.
This attorney lied to me from the beginning. He knew very little about defending me based on drug and alchohol abuse. He said the law provides for several definite defenses bazed kn my life-long addictions and related health impairments. He was unable to present a proper, good and convincing case. He asked for unnecessary continuances causing my holdover for 17 months. I worked on my case and provided him what I could to help my defense. He had little else and was not articulate or organized. This lawyer caused my incarceration for nearly 3 years. On appeal by nother lawyer, my conviction was overturned based on ineffective counsel and lack of evidence.
Thank you for making my wife and I feel special. You exceeded my expectations of an attorney. You were always there for us no matter the time of day. Your Christian values were constantly demonstrated, you never judged us or looked down on us. You made a bad situation easy to deal with. You will always be apart of our family. Thanks again for a job well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When my son was arrested on drug charges, he faced ten years in jail. I researched attorneys on the internet, and Mr. Grossman stood out as competent and affordable. And I liked his name. He spent almost an hour with me during that first phone call (the first sign), asking the right questions and advising me on a course of action. Something in his voice was reassuring (the second sign), and I never looked for another attorney.
I was afraid, afraid for my son, afraid of mis-investing my money, but when my family and I met Mr. Grossman, there were so many things about him that spoke to us, assuring us he was the one - things only we would know to take as signs. And on the day we went to court, Mr. Grossman walked in wearing a white hat (the best sign of all), and we lost any doubt we might have had that things wouldn't go in our favor.
There was no jury trial; we faced the judge directly. Mr. Grossman's rapport with the judge amazed me, especially since we were outside of his usual jurisdiction. He was eloquent and sincere in his defense of my son, and he moved this hardened judge to mercy; my son received probation. No attorney can work miracles, but he came awfully close that day.
It's not an understatement to say, I owe my son's life to Mr. Grossman. He is a remarkable man, and I recommend him as one of the most compassionate professionals I've ever met.
I wrote a review around 10 days ago stating I was happy with the results of my case based on a p hone call from Richard Grossman. Thie review was done prematurely. Since court I have met with a couple other attorneys and was asked questions about my case I coud not answer such as why a notice wasn't filed, etc. During the meeting I came to the conclusion that I was in a bate and switch relationship. He did not preform the duties we agreed upon in the contract.
I hired Mr. Grossman and we drew up a specific contract as to his representation of my case. It was to either end in a dismissal with prejudice or an appeal. Mr. Grossman convinced me to follow a certain course of action without ever educating me on another course of action which would have been more favorable in the results I was trying to obtain. In essense the course of action he took undermined my objective.
I hired him because of his knowledge of my case. Now I am questioning both his knowledge and/or his motives.
Mr. Grossman was very helpful. I was in a situation where I didn't have a lot of time to surrender myself. I hired mr. Grossman to set up a time and day to turn myself in and get a bond. I had to clear up my warrant as soon as possible. Two days after hiring mr. Grossman he called me with a date and time to surrender myself. I surrender myself and was released on a signature bond that same day. I put everything in mr. Grossman hands and he handled everything very well. He kept me update on everything. I feel like he was really working for me.
Grossman represented me in a simple case of probation revocation and identity fraud, both of which resolved themselves because of the delays in the proceedings. Grossman was incapable of staying abreast of motions filed by the prosecutors, responding the requests by judges for defense evidence, and neglected to prepare fully for hearings. He falsified testimony, failed to act on my behalf to a federal agency as directed by the Court (though he was compensated), and showed no competence in matters to which he professed expertise, i.e., mental illness vs criminal intent. If it were not for the insight of the Court, the assistance of the prosecution (yes, THE PROSECUTION), and my own PRO SE actions, I WOULD BE SERVING TIME RIGHT NOW!
I have a lawsuit pending against Grossman right now in State Court. A check of the internet shows that I am only one of previous and recent clients who have or are SUING GROSSMAN.
I was in need of representation for a legal matter. As I live out of state, this did pose a vexing problem. I began by searching for attorney's online in Georgia. I contacted several of them....but was not comfortable with their energy.
I called Mr. Grossman's number at approximately 6pm one night and he answered the phone. I was pleasantly surprised (with not having to talk to a secretary or leave a message).
His presentation (via the telephone) left me feeling he was the right choice for me. He was patient..not trying to rush me off the phone in spite of the hour.
I was stressed related to some life events and related to this legal matter and it was imperative for me to put my life in hands that would genuinely advocate on my behalf.
Attorney Grossman was the right professional for me.
It is one of the best decisions I have made.
Attorney Grossman was empathic, he was clear about his professional opinion about my options. In dealing with the federal court attorney, he was capable, competent and balanced. There was no ego or arrogance.
I have nothing but great things to say about Attorney Grossman. If you need a great attorney, call Attorney Richard A. Grossman!
In 2011, TP my grandson a teenage was charged as an adult with three counts of aggravated child moleststion. The charges carried a sentence of 25 years to life. We interviewed several lawyers and law firms before hiring Mr.Grossman. Mr. Grossman listened to our issues and discussed our options. We hired Mr. Grossman and he talked to TP several times before the court date was set.
It took the state almost a year to bring the case to court. I live out of state and the court date kept being extended. During this extended period of time Mr. Grossman visited TP many times even on Satursday and Sundays. He done a through investagion which included going to the site and interviewing witness. Mr. grossman was always infromed, knowledgeable and ready for whatever the state presented us with during the procedings in or out of the court room.
TP and myself was always informed about what to expect and our options. During his many visits with TP Mr. Grossman helped TP mentally and made him feel secure. The jury selection by Mr. Grossman was execelent. From day one our Mr. grossman was very impressive with a calm demenor. However in the court room his presentation was execlent. It seemed to me, that he was the superior legal mind in the court room. It appeared Mr. Grossman had complete control of every thing that happened in the court room.
TP was AQUITTED and his arrest record was expunged. We were highly impressed and always felt secure because of Mr. Grossman action and ethics during our ordeal. We highly recommend Mr. Grossman
