    I would recommend Richard Saltman to anyone who needs an attorney. He is efficient, reliable, trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable. He is off the charts and I am very pleased with his work. He meets every expectation and I would be happy to tell people about him.

  2. This law firm only in it to take as much of your money as possible

    • I do not recommend Richard Gould-Saltman.
    • I hired Richard 1-3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Despite what we discussed in every consultation, despite my clear instructions, the team (including Mr, Saltman) did everything possible to delay and prolong the divorce process. Ultimately when I fired them, they charged me an additional $3,000 to stop being my legal representative! When I refused to pay that and other disputed amounts (after already paying the firm a tremendous amount of money!), they used their boilerplate agreement to get every last penny they billed me for via arbitration. The arbiter seemed in league with Saltman and only told me "You should have fired them sooner".

      Lawyer Comment:

      This person does not appear to be a former client of our firm, since it has been approximately five years since we were last involved in a fee arbitration with any former client of our firm. This "client's" description of facts therefore cannot be accurate.

    The Best Lawyer. He helped us win a child move away case. He's very professional, confident, and has a positive attitude. I would recommend him for anyone with child custody cases.

    • I do not recommend Richard Gould-Saltman.

    I called the office of Gould-Saltman and spoke with his assistant for about 45 minutes. He asked me all kinds of questions about my case and said that Mr. Saltman or one of his associates will call me ASAP. I asked to only speak to Mr. Saltman since he was the one who answered my question on AVVO. Well, no one ever called. I posted this experience about this attorney on other related sites so that people do not waist time with him.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This "prospective client" contacted our offices on one occasion, but never spoke to any attorney in our offices. He was not, at any time, a client of our offices.
