  • Kelly W. Case

    I am rarely impressed with another lawyer's work ethic and dedication. Richard is a standout in terms of his preparation and dedication to being the best. He is a lawyer's lawyer and after working with him, I am glad that he is on the defense side and not the prosecution. He is a formidable opponent that is deeply commited to his client's best interests.

  • Stuart Austin Hughes

    Mr. Canlas is a rare gunslinger. He never backs down from the government. He is not afraid to go toe-to-toe against the prosecutors in the courtroom. He fights vigorously for the rights of his clients and is a true foot soldier of the U.S. Constitution. He has a command of the issues in Criminal Law and uses that knowledge to the benefit of his clients.
