  • Staci H Genet

    Richard is an excellent efficient and effective attorney. We were opposing counsel on an international commercial matter plagued with the emotional obstacles of a recent divorce. As a direct result of counsels ability to remain objective and respectful to each others' loyalties, both sides succeeded with a cost effective settlement that provided a final end to a difficult relationship. I look forward to working with Mr. Berman again, and recommend him as counsel for opposing parties.
