    I have worked with Richard on several matters and consider him to be one of the top bankruptcy attorneys in Miami. His knowledge of bankruptcy law is almost encyclopedic and his dedication to his clients is limitless. There are very few attorneys on my go-to list for bankruptcy matters, but Richard is always at the very top. I highly recommend him, and, in fact, have done so many times to family, friends and clients. He is excellent.
