5.0 stars 20 totalReview Richard Schurr
My divorce was very difficult due to the fact that my ex husband is a attorney.
Mr Schurr was hired to take over the attorney position in a litigation where the defendant was another attorney and was represented my an unscrupulous and unethical attorney where the strategy was to obfuscate and confuse matters to the objective of simply hearing us down in a case where it was so simply weighted in our favor that it was the only way they could try to prevail. it pretty much worked with the previous attorney who simply became tired of the ongoing and never ending confusion and costs. the matter involved suit over this defendants obligation to turn over clear title of a car at a specific date and failed to do so. Rick cut through all the confusion and brought the matter to settlement within a nine month period of time at reasonable costs which were mostly recovered. I was pleased with his approach,communication , costs and outcome and would use him for any matters in the future where the services of a competent attorney are required. I can only highly recommend Mr Schurr He is an excellent lawyer.
Rick did an incredible job throughout the whole divorce process. I had seen various attorneys previously and my experience was that he was by far the smartest, most competent, and fastest. To give you a point of comparison, my ex-wife went through three different attorneys, each one looking good on paper and ultimately being a disaster (which played in my favor).
Rick is very talented, and understands the needs of his clients. He was always very professional and provided excellent and consistent feedback and advice. I was confronted with a challenging divorce, with my ex-wife that did not work for the past 12 years, and significant assets and properties in the US and abroad. All sorts of unexpected issues arose during my case (sudden request from my ex-wife to relocate with the children, changes in her position and requests, new lawyers appointed, etc) and throughout it all Rick provided excellent guidance.
Rick was great as well at providing reassurance in the moments of tension and doubt, and also ensuring that we kept a hard position when needed. His extensive financial background with knowledge of taxes/finances/alimony/child support guidelines allowed him to calculate in a few minutes what the CPA or other attorneys took extensive time on their computers to do! This clearly played in our favor during our negotiations.
Rick was also very strong in convincing the opposing party to abandon any of their non-realistic claims, and to take the conversation back to our position. Rick is an extremely strong negotiator, and I saw how he was far superior to the other attorneys in mediation and throughout the whole divorce process.
He understood my desire to limit costs and find a settlement, while ensuring the outcome was favorable to me. I am very pleased with the overall result and agreement reached, and furthermore saved a tremendous amount by avoiding having to go to court.
I would therefore highly recommend Richard Schurr to anyone seeking top tier legal counsel.

I would like to thank Rick and his staff for his representation during my divorce. From the beginning, Rick was very reassuring and understanding to the needs of myself and my son. Having not experienced anything like this personally, I wasn’t aware of the process. Rick took the time to explain everything to me.
Rick is a very talented, compassionate, and professional attorney. Any issues that arose during my case including custody concerns, Rick was there to answer and reassure me that everything would be fine. When I had questions or concerns, he was very prompt in returning my phone calls or emails.
I am pleased with the outcome of how my divorce was handled in such a professional manner and I highly recommend Mr. Richard Schurr for his professional legal counsel.

Mr. Schurr has handled many legal aspects for me over the past 10 years. He was an excellent mediator for my divorce, as well has handling estate planning, wills, trusts, and tax matters. The turnaround time for all my requests has been exceptional. The office staff is also extremely helpful and timely in responding to questions as well. He is also quick to refer me to other reliable and capable professionals when in need. I go to Mr. Schurr for all legal matters knowing I am in safe and smart hands.

Mr. Schurr is an exceptionally gifted negotiator. My case involved a contract that required the interpretation and implementation of complicated tax laws. Mr. Schurr successfully negotiated on my behalf and the case was resolved in a very reasonable time frame with a favorable outcome. He applied his skills as an experienced mediator and his knowledge of taxes/finance and I am certain that no other attorney could have resolved such a complicated case in this manner.
The process of litigation is stressful, but Rick and his staff were helpful, considerate and kept me abreast of every step in the process. They took steps to help the case progress through the legal system in a timely manner which prevented it from "dragging on" as many cases do.
Rick is a competent, hard working, intelligent attorney but the quality that I observed and appreciated most was his high ethical standards. Your best interest takes precedence above all.
I recommend him to anyone seeking a top tier attorney.

I hired Mr. Schurr after years of frustration in dealing with the legal system and child support issues. I was very apprehensive in turning my personal matters over to the hands of an attorney, but he was highly recommended to me, and I was getting nowhere on my own. I have nothing but positive things to say about my whole experience with Mr. Schurr, his team, and his office staff. I was overwhelmed with his knowledge of the law, his compassionate mannerism and ability to get matters resolved quickly and efficiently. I was constantly kept up to date and was always answered with a timely response whenever I had a question regarding my case. Family law involves a great deal of emotion and turmoil, however Mr. Schurr is an excellent legal representative who understands and respects these issues.

I hired Mr Schurr after a year of unsuccessful, costly negotiation while represented by another attorney. By the time I found Mr Schurr, I was exasperated and untrusting of the legal process all together. Mr Schurr was unflappable in the face of opposing counsel's antics. He was reliable, professional and confident which was a great relief to me. He managed to turn what had become a circus back into a legal process which is now finally over. He does a great job anticipating outcomes and managing the obstacles to a speedy resolve. His experience in finance proved to be invaluable in my case. His office staff is responsive and was usually one step ahead of me. My only regret is that I didn't find him from the beginning. Fantastic attorney!

I find myself extremely proud to be recommending Rick Schurr. I have been a client of his for 5 years. I can only say that he is one of the most brilliant attorneys I have come across. He quickly establishes a good rapport with his clients and is meticulous about his representation. Most everyone knows of his intellectual ability, lofty ideals, and commitment to success.

Rick represented me in a difficult, contentious property case. My case was particularly complicated because it involved division of property both within and outside of the state of Florida and joint assets. I firmly believe there is no other attorney who could have represented me and achieved such successful results. Rick was truly my advocate; he provided advice throughout the entire process that proved to be sound, practical counsel. Rick is highly intelligent, thorough, and ethical. He has a keen analytical mind and a winning personality. He possesses the very best of qualities that you could want in someone who represents you.
