Richard handled my accident case and did an outstanding job of getting all of the expenses reduced and paid in a timely fashion. He got me more money than I expected from the insurance companies and so far I have had no problems with the various medical suppliers or the government

I was the one who filed for divorce. First of all I wish I had spoken with him months before beginning the process but alas, I did not.
Tried to settle without attorneys but to no avail. Rich offered a free upfront consultation, which was nice. He was upfront about everything that could and may happen. Communication was great. Emails and phone calls were returned quickly and with the information I had been seeking. I have been down this road before so I knew to be totally honest with Rich about my past and present in order to allow him to do the best job possible of representing me.
I went in wanting what was best for my child 1st, then to be fair 2nd and 3rd to protect my small business and myself. If you want an attorney to tell you what you want to hear then Rich is NOT your guy. If you want to be told realistic scenarios and a good strategy with cost options for all things presented in a clear and easy to understand manner then proceed with Rich. He is certainly not afraid to go to trial and does so regularly. The “big name” lawyers do NOT intimidate him. Many attorneys avoid the courtroom like the plague and only wish to settle. Not so with Rich! However, a trial is very expensive and he helped me to review cost and outcome options every step of the way. What a breath of fresh air to have an attorney not just trying to jack up his fees by going to trial. I loved that he gave me some money saving options by allowing me to assist with the preparation of the case.
If it is possible at all to walk away from a divorce feeling that you “won” I have that feeling. Fast, efficient and very affordable. Much more so than the other lawyers I had spoken with. I could not be more pleased.

I was in a car wreck back in January 2011. My parents hired Mr. Connelly while i was still in the hospital. He started on my case and forewarned me it could take a while to resolve. During the length of the case Mr. Connely was very informative and helpful to my parents and myself. Over a year and half later the case is resovled and it could not have been done without the help of Mr. Connelly and his Associates.

I contacted Mr. Connelly by phone after being referred to him by John Lyndon. During our initial conversation, Mr. Connelly seemed very friendly and responsive. He detailed a course of action for my case and gave me assurances that he would soon contact me with further developments. Several weeks went by and I heard nothing from Mr. Connelly's office. After repeated attempts to contact Mr. Connelly (by phone and by email), I still got no response. I finally terminated our business by leaving a message with his secretary. I have no knowledge of Mr. Connelly's ability in the courtroom. However, his approach to my (relatively simple) legal issue seemed very unprofessional.
