  • Jerry Bruce Harkness Sr.

    I endorse this lawyer. Richard and his family are my neighbors and he is a awesome man, friend, father of four children, and a great lawyer. I have observed him in court for many years and he takes his job very seriously and works so hard for all of his clients. You won't find a better man and lawyer.

    I "highly" endorse this lawyer's work Richard is not only a fine lawyer he is a gentleman and trustworthy to boot! I have worked with him on domestic relations matters and he is not only fair, he is gracious as well. This is a rare quality in a lawyer now days! I think if he wants to, he will make a fine Judge! By the way I also consider him a friend in the legal profession, and I don't cultivate many of those! Jerry F. Lee Attorney at Law
