    I have worked with Richard for the past four years, and in that time have come to rely on him to assist me with my real estate work. He is very knowledgeable in many facets of real estate, including mortgages, title issues, undisclosed defects and liens. He is also my go-to guy for residential and commercial evictions. He is always looking for a good solution for his clients, whether that be litigation, mediation, or some other way to resolve disputes. I like that he is always focused on the best result for the client, and getting to that result as quickly and efficiently as possible.
