I live on the West Coast and I had to engage Rich to negotiate a settlement with a company with whom do business in Florida. He brokered the settlement and avoided litigation. All for a flat fee which was more than reasonable. I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Sierra handled the Sale of my Business. He was knowledgeable, understanding and informative throughout this transaction. I felt that I was in good hands as Mr. Sierra was looking out for my best interest at all times. He was diligent in his work, and handled all issues in a professional manner.

I found Mr. Sierra just on a blind call looking for advice on a issue I was having. After giving him all of the background info he gave me some solid advice and didn't ask me for a dime. As it turned out I need to go further and have him step in an help handle the situation. He kept me informed and he made is clear to me what our strategy would be and then implemented it and didn't rush me off the phone. I was pleased with the results and I would refer him to any small business needing a attorney.
On a side note even the party we were working against said to me they like him and would consider using him for themselves.

Richard knows the law! We had a very complex case and thru his research and extreme legal and business knowledge we were able to settle the case Quick! He kept us informed every step of the way and was 3 steps ahead of the opposing counsel from start to finish. It was a very cost effective litigation. I would recommend Richard to anyone seeking the very best counsel.

I had a very serious problem with my former business partner, who tried to force me out of the business that I had founded. I have made the grave error of drawing up the contract between us without consulting a lawyer. As a result, the contract was flawed and contained provisions detrimental to me that made it possible for my partner to sue me for sole control.
I looked for a business lawyer online and came across Mr. Sierra. As he had good recommendations from clients, I decided to hire him. It was most fortunate for me that I did. He resolved my case very effectively, settling it out of court in a highly satisfactory way that enabled me to keep my business without my partner.
I recommend Mr. Sierra most highly. He is a superb lawyer, honest, responsible and very professional. I could not have been happier with his work. I was also very pleased with his assistant, Aimee, who was very helpful and always kept me informed of the status of the case.

With an enormous amount of of knowledge and an abundant source of positive energy, Rich Sierra pulled me through a maze of legalities. His compassion and professionalism is like no other. His office assistant Aimee is positively wonderful. You are kept informed every step of the way. He exceeds expectation's. Mr. Sierra's integrity is beyond reproach. In this day and age, no one is truthful and they just want your business. Mr. Sierra DESERVES your business because of his knowledge, grace, and because he cares. Mr. Sierra will treat you like he would treat his own family throughout your case...you will also not win unless you choose this attorney to represent you. I chose him, I won and would reccommend him to anyone who is searching for a competent attorney to represent their case in a respectful, thorough manner. You won't be let down. Choose Mr. Sierra and he will get the job done for you...you deserve to have the best represent you, Mr. Sierra is the best!!!!!!

We needed last minute urgent advice on the purchase of a foreclosure. Rich was able to immediately be available and review the documentation overnight and provide advise. We retained him to represent us through the closing and his services were invaluable in educating and assisting us on this transaction.

Mr. Sierra is thorough and very knowledgeable. He has been helping me with two different cases, and I am very happy with his work. He was able to help me settle one case and is working diligently on another.

After consulting with several lawyers we found Rich, who was able to help us through a complex and nasty business ordeal with a franchisor. This was done without the usual financial burden and abuse of most lawyers. He also helped us with a few other legal issues and all were handled with professionalism and compassion. We would definitely hire him again and recommend his services.

As we ventured into entrepreneurship, we were referred to Mr. Sierra by a small business owner. We could not have found a more perfect fit for our legal needs. Mr. Sierra has helped us since the beginning, as we searched for a location and as we grew and continue to grow. He has been a great advocate not only by ensuring we get the best possible lease agreement but also with all other legal matters. He has always been prompt to respond to all our questions and concerns, and being first time small business owners we had many. Overall, Mr. Sierra is a thorough professional, who is also trustworthy and honest. It has put me at ease knowing that I have Mr. Sierra in our corner, to review and guide us through our legal matters.

Mr. Sierra took over several cases that were consuming a lot of cash of my busines without any resolution. He step-up as my new attorney and in less than six months over 50% were gone and resolved to my satisfaction. He keep working in the rest of the cases very diligent, providing a detail status report on a monthly basis and discussing strategies to obtain a resolution. Mr. Sierra will tell you upfront if you have a strong case or a strategy to minimize your losses. I am using him as well for any personal consultation. I am very satisfied with his work and honest advice.

Owning multiple businesses, I need an attorney that really understands Contracts and Agreements between companies. Rich has been a tremendous help. Rich has saved me a considerable amount of money by detecting "red flags" in contractual agreements. Not only can Rich find the problem areas but he also finds solutions. I can honestly tell you I will never sign another corporate agreement with out running it past Rich first. I am glad to have him on my team!

I was in need of an attorney due to a franchise dispute with my franchisor. Richard was always available for my questions. He kept me informed of all proceedings, and took the time to make sure i understood what was going on at every step of the process. Rich fought a huge lawfirm backed by my franchisor, and brought about an amicable settlement that I thought would have never happened. Rich never "nickeled & dimed" me like many lawyers do. He was very reasonable with his fees, and was very understanding to our situation. Rich did an incredible job for me. I can not recommend him enough. Please email me if you have any question about using him.

I am still using him for other matters as well, and expect to use him in the future for anything that requires legal council, too.

Unfortunately, I am in a very complex legal battle with my business partner in Florida. Despite the huge amount of background information and correspondence to backup my case i have sent Mr. Sierra's team they been excellent at cutting through the complexities and focusing on the strong areas of my case. I really feel they are my partners in this. Rich has guided me in making all the right moves pre-litigation even though I have been very emotional. This is my first major business lawsuit, and I am glad that i met Mr. Sierra after looking for several months and interviewing several business lawyers that just didn't feel right for me. So far it's looking promising and although the case is in the early stages, I feel positive about it and I would like to leave this review. Thank you Mr. Sierra and to your staff. I am looking forward to a good outcome so that I can get what I deserve and finally move on with my life.
