We hired Rich based off of Avvo reviews, so here's my $0.02. My wife and i own a rental property. Our tenants have been quite bland, which is good. Rent was always on time. Recently the renters complained about white dust coming from the duct work. After investigation, the entire ducting system was in tatters and had to be replaced. Long story short, we receive a notice from our property management company stating the renters would like compensation for health issues related to the dust as well as time missed from work. We immediately hired Rich to mitigate any liability issues on our part. After a 30 minute phone conversation, my wife and I met Rich to go into details about the case. Rich came to the meeting prepared, with state statutes that could help our case. As i mentioned, our tenants were good tenants. We only wanted to mitigate the liability of this for the future, so Rich drafted a letter advising the clients they would have no case if this went to court, however, that we would compensate them for any time missed from work (as the repairs required the tenants to be at home for 2 days). The renters immediately accepted our first offer, which was a very pleasant surprise. Now, everyone is happy, i cannot be sued in the future, and our renters just signed a new lease!
I have used several different attorneys over the years. They are typically shady, greedy, and generally do not seem to care. I did not feel this way with Rich at all. Very professional, prompt, and thorough. Quit wasting your time on this site and call Rich!

I've used Richard for several personal matters (banks going after me regarding foreclosures; old HOA issues; and bad personal loans I gave 'friends'). Richard gave me the pros and cons for each situation so I could make an educated decision on how I wanted to move forward. Richard also let me know when a matter would be best tried first by me versus hiring an attorney. I would definitely recommend Richard to others and will use him anytime I need an attorney.

Richard Elley is the most honest and up front attorney I have ever worked with. He is easy to talk to and returns calls in a timely manner. He makes you feel comfortable through his professionalism and takes the time to explain things so you completely understand them. I highly recommend Richard Elley to all my friends and family.

Richard Elley has worked with us on several occasions and we are very please with his results. His knowledge in handing our specific situations was excellent and his response time was very good. Richard met with us in person, listened to our concerns and explained what he could do for us. He was never more than a phone call away. We are very pleased and would highly recommend him.

I was referred to Richard Elley regarding some contractual issues I needed to have ironed out along with some issues regarding laws impacting me outside of Arizona. From the moment I met Richard, I felt that he was extremely knowledgeable and most importantly, efficient. He took on my case and was swift with his turnaround time, followed through with his commitments, took the time to really understand and clarify my needs, and did an excellent job which saved me a ton of money.
I really appreciated his warm approach. He didn't feel stuffy or unapproachable. He was REAL. If you are looking for an attorney who you can not only feel but KNOW is your corner, Richard is the go-to-guy!
Thank You Richard! I don't do reviews often but couldn't miss this opportunity to support you and share my success with you as my attorney!

I have had many experiences with lawyers; some good, some bad. My experience with Richard Elley has been, above all, the best. He is professional and courteous. He is exceptional in being patient with my ignorance of the law and not only explains his legal perspective, but also in any number of ways I needed to understand the odds for my desired outcome.
Mr. Elley can't always change if I am legally right or legally wrong but I always have the peace of mind that he is my way of improving the odds against me.

I retained Mr. Elley for assistance with creating a multi-member LLC and for legal help with a homeowner liability claim. With regard to the LLC Creation Mr. Elley was very helpful. We required a custom Operating and Buy-Sell Agreements and he provided an initial draft which was subsequently refined between my business partners and himself. The process took multiple iterations and Mr. Elley was very helpful throughout the process. Pricing was fair and appropriate. Regarding the homeowner liability issue, Mr. Elley provided straightforward advice that was in my best interest and outlined the various paths of the process. It allowed me to make an informed decision on whether to settle the claim or move forward with litigation.
