    Richard's business acumen is unique among attorneys in Arizona. Most attorneys know the law fairly well and some of them are personable. Richard, though, has nearly a decade of experience in the mortgage industry, he knows the law, AND he is personable. I know he will be the first person I call when I organize my business. I strongly suggest you call Richard for a consult, you will not regret it.
