Richard Ross represented me in my divorce. He was great. The Judge gave us EVERYTHING we asked. Richard always was there . My ex was challenging my custody and she did not get what she wanted. Thank you Richard. I can be with my kids now.
I interviewed approximately 10 attorneys before selecting Richard. I was originally interested in him because of being Board Certified. Additionally, a former Ventura County Family Law Mediator had plenty of positive feedback when I asked her about Richard. When I talked with him, he seemed ready to fight for my case and take a position on it that others attorney's didn't seem ready to fight for. He seemed to pay attention to detail. One of the two Declarative Statements he prepared far exceeded my expectations. While a lot of attorney may seem cocky, Richard struck me as appropriately confident, calm, well-spoken, and as classy as they come. Richard and his staff have exercised a great deal of patience in responding to all my questions and concerns.
The opposing council was very experienced and had authored several law books, served as a Judge Pro Tem, and, like Richard, was also Board Certified. When we went to court, I overheard the opposing council compliment Richard on the good job he did in preparing my Declarative Statements. Later, Richard actually answered some procedural questions for the other attorney. In addition to being thorough and knowledgeable, Richard had valuable suggestions for including in my custody order and successfully got all parties to come to an agreement. Additionally, he helped me to remain calm when I was extremely stressed and frustrated and knew when we should give in and when we should fight for something. While going to court for a custody matter is the worst situation anyone wants to be in, having Richard as my attorney has been a very positive experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Richard Ross is a subject matter expert in the field of family law. He successfully fought for my rights against one of the most notorious and highest paid attorney's in LA/Ventura. Richard was able to manage his associates to handle the paper work to reduce my overall costs. It was always Richard who showed up at court. He is well respected and connected within the courts and brought my case to a timely resolution. His partnering attorney Marina is also extremely intelligent and convincing. His staff is polite, caring, and quick to respond. He is also very up to date on current case law and he is personally tech savvy when it comes to presenting information, which is hard to find among attorney's that have been in practice so long. I can't say enough about how well this firm was equipped to handle my legal matters. Ross knows what he is doing, has an impeccable record, comes with great credentials, and is very experienced.
