Dick and I became acquainted when I contacted our company's EAP for a referral to a family law attorney. I was comfortable from our first meeting in what should have been a short easy divorce. The other side switched representation to a shark and the process became bogged down with unrealistic attacks and demands. This was compounded by a horrible family court judge, who thankfully was not re-elected a few years ago. This case strung out for nearly 5 years, went through 2 trials and 1 appeal and generated a whole lot of frustration for both Dick and me. During this entire time, he did not raise his fee, did not waiver in his resolve to do the best possible under the circumstances, he was loyal to me and took care of my case. He was sincere in his commitment to me. He knows the Tarrant County family law community inside out, and from my perspective is well respected by both his contemporaries and the courts. He is fair, honest and forthright. He will shoot straight with you and tell you when you are right and when you are wrong. Dick Price is a good man.

Mr. Price was very thorough in his research on my case. He presented every angle and really thought of ideas that I never considered. He is very easy to work with and has a kind personality.
It's obvious to me that he has been doing this a long time. I have referred him to friends and those that used him have been impressed too. He is very knowledgeable.

With our initial meeting, I cried, I talked, he listened, he wrote, I talked, I cried, he wrote, he listened. Geez, that first meeting, he and his secretary were so kind & patient. We got through it, and Mr. Price steered the way to allow me to choose the path I wanted and the outcome I was seeking. His role was like that of a captain on the ship, he clearly knew the direction, after listening to me, and clearly knew how to get us there. He knew the course, as though he had been there many times before, he is not easily led off course, he forges ahead in the direction I pointed to. This was a divorce which was unwelcome and started out contentious, with of course, the usual hurt feelings, tears, children, child support, hiding money, withholding information, etc., etc., etc. It couldn't have been worse, but things do get worse before they get better. Once my spouses attorney entered the arena, and increased the insanity, I thought I would literally loose my mind - I really depended a lot on Mr. Price. I can't tell you how many telephone calls I made to him through his secretary, which he either returned or which she answered right away. At times he was in court or in another session, but he always did return my telephone calls. Mr. Price, was a steady hand in this crazy, hurricane in my life. No matter what the opposition threw out, Mr. Price, would calmly prepare the necessary response, and was a consummate, prepared, legal professional, in court, & in his office. At times I would see the other attorney rant and rave in court, look completely foolish, next to this calm man, and I knew I had picked the right man for my divorce. In the end, I received, what was clearly fair, and what I am most happy with. I remain sad about the divorce, I am glad that my attorney represented me with compassion, understanding, respect, knowledge, and expertise. Mr. Price is extremely knowledgeable in the field in which he works. He is such an unassuming guy and a heck of an attorney.
Since in my past, I have utilized the services of many administrative assistants, I can't let the opportunity pass without mentioning the rest of Mr. Prices' staff, his legal secretary. A very pleasant lady, who always answered the telephone, listened, answered questions, where she could, followed up with the correct information to Mr. Price, so I didn't have to repeat it, and is an asset to his practice. The office and the legal staff is the whole package. The cost was within reason, I felt very comfortable discussing fees, and I really thought I got MORE than I paid for. Yes, I received great legal counsel, but I also received them from people who were kind, compassionate, caring, and of good character, and I like that.

Mr. Price performed my legal representation as well as I could expect it to be done. I was informed of scenarios and choices that needed to be considered. Different legal options were explained to my satisfaction. Mr. Price showed great patience when answering my questions and discussing my ideas. Mr. Price explained my legal choices but did not try to dominate or make my decisions for me. There were some decisions that I had to make that I could not determine which option was the best, (or least destructive), and in these instances Mr. Price counseled and assisted me in the evaluations.
Mr. Price has represented me in a criminal case, a divorce, and has assisted me with filing my will. In all cases I have been billed fairly and have not experienced any difficulty understanding the billing process.
I do not personally know Mr. Price we only have a lawyer and client relationship. After the several office visits and court dates that I have been in contact with Mr. Price I have concluded that he is friendly, honest, non judgmental, and committed to performing the best representation for his clients.
I highly recommend Mr. Price’s legal services.

Richard was cordial and thorough. He respected my wishes and accomplished what I needed him to do in the appropriate amount of time at a reasonable price.

Mr. Price's inaccurate and untruthful response to my poor review of his services only serve to reassure me that I was correct in seeking other representation. I am angry that he implies I did not understand the process. I continued with the collaborative process after firing him, I did not receive a detailed billing for March, I was seeing a MHP throughout the process. I would suggest he did not understand the facts of my case. He obviously has no problem with being untruthful.
I again highly recommend finding a different divorce attorney as Mr. Price was unable to adequately provide representation for my case.

Mr. Richards is a very good and trustworthy lawyer. He worked on my case very hard and sucessfully to help me to bring back my kids home from my ex-wife. I always remember his works for me and my family.

When I first hired Mr. Price as my divorce attorney he said all the right things to get me to believe he understood what I needed. Instead I felt pushed by him to agree to settlements that would not benefit myself or my minor son. I felt like my ex had two attorneys and I none. After I informed him I would be retaining a different attorney he requested additional funds as he claimed to have exhausted my retainer...in 3 months. This was without ever filing the divorce petition (as he had promised to do) and after only 3 meetings. I never received the detailed billiing I requested. I did however receive a lengthy e-mail telling me I was angry and ungrateful. Btw, Dick, I got all the things in the divorce decree that I requested of my attorney and she charged me a fraction of what I would have ended up paying you.

Looking back on the last year, it was due to Mr. Price, that I can honestly say, that while divorces are dreadful, the process doesn't have to be dreadful. I met him while looking directly into the eye of the storm - a divorce which began with a lot of hurt feeling, arguing, bickering, & what appeard to be no hope for a positive outcome for me & my kids. We were all in the midst of a major crisis. I was quite impressed with his calm demeanor, and his ability to focus with the end in mind. I would occassionally get off track, get annoyed, hurt, etc., and in spite of ME, he was able to steer things in the right direction. He always stayed calm, a cool negotiator, and looking for tack where I was looking at attack! While I'll admit, I often wanted to behave poorly - his ability to hear my needs and work slowly towards those, really won me in the end, a good settlement. I feel like the work we did on continuing to look at the end, really paid off
on taking care of my children and me. I thought I would pull my hair out, or at leasy my husband's hair out during the negotiations; but once again, Mr Price's calm, demeanor, his knowledge of the law, coupled with his ability to present calm in a storm, and direct the negotiations, was truly a site to watch. He has renewed my opinion of what attorney's actually do - they care!

All he cares about is his billing time, charged an arm & a leg for paperwork that all he did was copy & paste my name. He also not only wrote up things incorrect on paper work, he insisted my ex bring someone with him ( who i wanted barred from my property) to my property everytime he comes now. He also bills me relentlessly for conversations we havent had, nor will he send me final papers. OVERPRICED & OVERRATED on this website. Basically I wasted $7k on someone, that I didnt have in the first place, and got worse results than when I spent $1k on a cheap lawyer!!!
