5.0 stars 11 totalReview Richard Sanders
I have used Richard twice now. Once for a divorce and the second time when my ex-wife tried to take my children away from me. This is the most confident, intelligent, hard fighting lawyer I met. And I sat with the best in Savannah during my interview process...
Divorce and custody battles are extremely difficult in all aspects but especially emotionally. During the divorce and custody battle process Richard was confident, realistic and honest about what the he believed the outcome would be. I felt that I was 100% taken care of and that my best interests were the top priority and were being highly looked after in both cases.
He made every effort to make the divorce as amicable as possible. I was impressed with his honesty, realism and ethics. Many times he advised me not to do something because the cost wouldn't be worth it! Richard looked out for me and what was in my best interest, not his pocket book. He is not a "scorch the earth" attorney. He wasn't looking to punish or destroy anyone. Just what was realistically fair. He was able to keep us out of court and the agreement we ended up siging was about as fair as it could be for both sides.
The second time I used Richard was when my ex-wife attempted to take my children from me. She claimed the most heinous things possible. That I abused my children and molested my two little girls. It doesn't get any worse than this.... My ex-wife not only reported me numerous times to DFACs but was also able to convince multiple Doctors and therapists to do the same. Through the whole process Richard was again confident, honest, and realistic. Everything that he believed would happen happened. He fought hard when he needed to and left the unimportant things alone. Again Richard fought for me and my best interests, not his pocket book. Again many times he advised me not to do things because it would cost me money and would most likely not get me anywhere. The whole process was long and both emotionally and physically exhausting. However in the end I ended up with joint legal custody and nearly 50% physical custody. I get half of the summer, alternating every holiday, time on their birthdays and mine, a phone call everyday I don't have them, the list goes on. For being a male in Chatham country this is huge.... Richard did a phenomenal job and really I couldn't have asked for more.
To say I am impressed and happy with Richard is a huge understatement. His ethics and morals are of the highest standard. He is extremely intelligent and confident in his game plan. More importantly he was right. There were a few times that I didn't listen to him, only for it to backfire on me. If I would have listened to him and followed his advice to the "T" there is a good possibility that I would be in an even better position.
On top of all of this the staff that works in his office are absolutely amazing. Richard's paralegal Emily is hands down the best. She did so much work on my case often late into the night and last minute rush work because of my ex's attorney sending everything last minute. Her thoughts, abilities, and hard work are unparalleled. She absolutely deserves a ton of credit for the outcome of my case. Kathy the secretary was always a comforting site. You don't go into a lawyers office on good days.... But seeing her and talking to her always calmed me down and brought hope back even in the lowest of times.
If you need a lawyer go talk to everyone in Savannah, then go visit Richard. You will see that my experience, and the other reviewers, will mirror yours.

I forgot throughout the process of it all, how important it was to have counsel that would defend and fight for their client until Mr. Sanders represented me for the last chapter of a very long case. His approach at fast and efficient resolution and focus on objective are second to none and he would be one of my first choices to have with me if I needed to be in a courtroom. The last of numerous lawyers over two different states and no matter the outcome...I feel like I finally got a fair hearing and opportunity to make my claim.

I have known Richard for over 10 years. He is an outstanding attorney who is ethical and professional with his clients. He has strong litigation skills, and not only considers the legal strategies, but the practicalities of solving the issue with alternative legal options. He listens to his clients and responds clearly with thorough and creative advice. He is prepared, focused, and remains calm at all times. I was very happy with the outcome of my case and would recommend Richard without any reservations.

I was in an auto accident (rear ended) and received nothing but the run around from the insurance company for over one and a half years. That's when I decided to hire Mr.. Sanders. He is a very knowledgeable, personable and compasionate individual. He will do everything in his power to help you obtain your objective. His interest is only in assisting you with the least amount of effort on your part.
I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him to handle your case.

I had put myself in a terrible position with the law, but having Mr. Sanders and his firm on my side certainly helped me get through a tough situation while keeping my sanity. Hiring this firm was the best decision that I've ever made. When you're facing a serious situation concerning the law, it can be hugely confusing and frightening and I felt that my life/future was in excellent hands. Starting with the warm reception that I received from Kathy in the Front Office; I was, actually --a criminal!--but was never treated like one! They walked me through the entire process with careful guidance and the utmost professional treatment! The phone, my emails & my questions were always answered immediately (I even had the attorneys' cell phone numbers!). While we were in court, it was evident that this law firm has the respect of the Judge, the Police Officers and the community. I felt so safe knowing that I was being represented by someone who had a great reputation. I am forever grateful for their representation, because I now have a CLEAN RECORD, thanks to Richard Sanders, Doug Andrews and their more-than-competent, overly caring, considerate staff!

Richard helped me through what I considered a difficult case. Never once did he make me feel less of myself because I didn't have the legal knowledge that he does. He and his team made sure I knew what to expect at every step of the process. He also went above and beyond to calm my fears of what "could" happen in the legal system. In the end, he and his team were able to provide me with exactly what I needed to move on with my life.

Richard represented me during a complex divorce matter and I found him to be straightforward, aggressive, and detail/results oriented. He listened to me and built the case around my testimony. In court, he was organized and extremely confident. The outcome was very favorable for me! I recommend Richard without hesitation.

Mr. Sanders and his staff go above and beyond to make you feel at ease during the divorce process. It was a very quick and painless experience due to his dedication to his practice. I would recommend him to anybody who has the need for a Family Law Attorney.

Mr. Sanders is hands down a true fighter. When he took my case he displayed a confidence that is rarely seen in cases similar to mine. He spent countless hours working with me to provide me with great detail and preparation. He was only straight forward and honest with me even if it wasn’t what I wanted to hear, but it was what I needed to hear. In court he displayed the knowledge, tenacity, and professionalism that any client could hope to receive. I could never put into words the appreciation I have for Mr. Sanders and his amazing staff for fighting alongside me each and every day and helping my family and I achieve the goals and dreams we set out for in a 2+ year custody battle.
