I have hired Rich McKendrick as my attorney in the past and I would hire him again. Anytime you can find an attorney like him no one else compares. Honestly, not only did I have him as an attorney but I work in the legal community as a non-attorney, and whenever I ask about Mr. McKendrick to another attorney the response I always hear is, “Oh Rich, he’s a good guy. He’s one the few honest and great attorney’s out there.” Sometimes this remark has come from a few attorneys who they themselves have a less than perfect reputation. The fact is that there is no denying it; people who know him, work with him, or have hired him, know that he is an excellent attorney and an honest man. I think it is just as important for other attorney’s to have a favorable opinion about your attorney because in my experience the other side is more willing to work with you and not drag out the legal process. There is a big difference between this and being part of a “Good Ol’ Boy” network that you frequently encounter is small communities. Mr. McKendrick is clearly respected by his peers but his loyalty is to his client first and foremost.
I know from my experience of being one of Mr. McKendrick’s clients that he goes above and beyond. He makes himself and his staff accessible practically 24/7. I don’t know of any other attorney who does that. His fee is more than reasonable and very competitive. He is a very sharp, wise, and an intelligent attorney. He is patience, a good listener, sincere, and is truly dedicated to your cause and getting you results. He is also flexible and willing to work with you and your situation, definitely more accommodating than any attorney I have ever met. My advice is always ask around about an attorney you are thinking of hiring and when you hear something negative about them try to find out what the whole story was, a lot of times when someone has something bad to say about their attorney there is more to the story that they aren’t telling you. I haven’t ever heard or seen anything with his conduct that would lead me to believe otherwise. I would be cautious to jump to conclusions if I did, because when it comes to an attorney like Mr. McKendrick his standard is a much higher one than most people today are used to practicing themselves, much less encountering it in someone else. There is nothing underhanded about what he does and he is completely upfront with you. I highly recommend this attorney!
I hired this man as a criminal defense atty by recommendation of friends and family in the Mormon Church. While it is not his specialty, he is good at it. The problem persists in his moral standing. This man is of the Mormon religion. Mormons tend to want to play the moral arbitrator. Long story short Mr. Mckendrick told me to my face he did not believe my account of the incident and that I was to suffer accordingly for my mistakes. Had I would have known this man was a family atty, I would have never hired him. Now that I know he is a family atty while Im needing one, I felt compelled to share my experiences with him and would not hire him if my families life depended on it
Mr. McKendrick took calls afterhours to help me and my family in a Landlord dispute. He was effective in dealing with the situation, and calming the nerves of all of us as we found ourselves in an unexpected situation. He knew the law and the limits of what could or could not be done, kept me updated on the proceedings and was able to take a huge headache off of my hands, and support me through it. I would recommend him as an attorney who will be there to help, listen to any issues that you might have, counsel you as to how to proceed and then fight for your interests.
Mr. McKendrick helped me in a difficult situation. He even took my calls after hours and worked out a resolution to my problem. I would highly recommend him.
Mr. McKendrick is what I would call a good ole boy sleezy lawyer. When I hired him I paid a hefty sum for him to represent me and then his office did not return my calls, I was unable to get an appointment and on the appearance in court I found that low and behold - his best friend was curiously representing the other side. I am quite certain he alerted his friend to the other side's need for a lawyer and the two of them both got paid and I got screwed over. The lawyers had worked out a deal and my safety and need was not a part of it even though the person was still threatening me and Mr. McKendrick knew it.
Mr. McKendrick has done more for me than anyone can imagine. He is a very knowledge attourney that truly has his heart in the right places. Thanks to his dedication and advice I now have custody of my child. I would recomend him to anyone seeking the best in representation.
