Without hesitation I recommend Attorney Lance Richard. Lance's honest, forthright approach, candor, and realism makes him the best choice for your counsel. Attorney Richard represented me in a criminal case and civil case where I was the victim of inflated charges from an altercation. That is, I engaged in a scuffle with a devious individual who attempted to extort me after drumming-up excessive criminal battery charges. Not only did Attorney Richard expose the criminal case to the State showing the absurdness of the plaintiff, Lance crushed a personal-injury lawsuit where the plaintiff's attorney badgered, belittled and attempted to intimidate me into paying an exorbitant amount of money. In summary, I completely trust and endorse Attorney Lance Richard without reservation and encourage you to consider my testimony as a heartfelt and unsolicited honor to an amazing attorney

From a professional standpoint and having referred many friends to Mr. Richard, I can tell you that you will not go wrong by hiring Lance to navigate the waters of your legal affairs. Not only is he an exceptional attorney, but quite the exceptional human being, as well. He is diligent, straight-forward and never lacking in legal strategy. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Lance has represented my family and myself. His knowledge of the criminal justice system was surpassed only by his passion for justice and his compassion for my family. Lance is not only an amazing attorney but he is a good man. A pleasure to find during a confusing and trying time.Thank you Lance for all that you do for others.

I didn't know what to epect when seeing a lawyer for the first time, but Lance made the whole process bearable and I felt I was in good hands from the start of our first meeting. He got me the best result and made the whole mess go away. I am truly greatful to him.

Lance has been working hard for me over the past 3 years. Very easy to work with and undersatnding. I've used his services for three different matters and received not only a great outcome but peace of mind.

I retained Lance Richard for three separate matters - one relating to an insurance company failing to pay my claim and one relating to a builder refusing to refund my earnest money deposit due to a contractually covered term permitting such a refund. Lance was successful in garnering $16,000 in payment from my insurance company and $30,000 from the builder.
As a result of the successful relationship I have had with Lance I asked him to be my agent of record for my LLC. In this legal relationship, Lance successfully fended off an aggressive legal attack to try and sue me for failure to make payments on a Cessna aircraft I never owned. Lance successfully discovered another LLC sharing my business name in another state, where the real culprit in the matter resided. I never heard from that nasty attorney again.
Lance specializes in 3 key areas, but whenever I have a matter in another area of law, he has referred me to attorneys specializing in those areas. For example, I have not had points added to my driver's license in over 4 years since Lance referred me to an attorney specializing in speeding tickets on I-95, and this attorney covers 4 counties!
I highly recommend Lance if you need an attorney who is deeply knowledgable in the law, who takes a strategic perspective on your case, and gives you a candidly balanced opinion about the risks and potential rewards of using an attorney in the first place. It's rare to run into an attorney who won't take your money if he doesn't believe you have a fair chance of winning. Very, very uncharacteristic!

I hired Lance for my son to have his sentenced reduced. I had talked to another lawyer and he told me it was impossible to get the sentenced reduced. I even asked this lawyer to look at the case a second time, and he again stated he could not and would not take the case. When I spoke with Mr. Richard he made no promises about the results, but he seemed extremely knowledgeable. He worked hard on the case and often called me late into the evening to inform me with updates. You can trust Lance to be on your side. Lance was successful in having the sentenced reduced.

Lance Richard has helped me several times over the past 5 years in different capacities. From my recent purchase of a home, to an unhelpful insurance company (at least until Lance laid down the law!) to employment contracts, he has always been responsive and professional. If I ever get in trouble, Lance will be the first person I call. I would trust him to handle any issue, no matter how serious or delicate. I find him to be honest, humble, and extremely intelligent. When I see stories of his successes as a defense attorney on the news, I am proud to be his client; would recommend him to any of my friends or family without hesitation.

I hired Mr. Richard to handle my divorce a while back. Mr. Richard MISLEAD me about certain stipulations (saying they meant" nothing") in the proposed offer from the other attorneys and advised me to sign it. The other party used those stipulations which Mr. Richards MISLEAD me about for future litigation, costing me THOUSANDS.
