    • I do not recommend Richard Houghton.

    He asked for and received 9k for a separation. He breathed down my neck impatiently while I was signing the contract. Later it became apparent that the 9k did not include any work on his part. Taking him to court was futile. The Palm Springs judge did not let me get a word in edgewise.

    • I recommend Richard Houghton.
    • I hired Richard more than 3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Without Mr. Houghton's legal representation and professional advice, I'm not sure what the fate of my children might have been. In an extremely difficult and sensitive custody battle, one involving alcohol abuse and domestic violence, Richard Houghton displayed his thorough knowledge of Family Law along with a clear-headed legal approach and follow-through. When I tended to become emotional over the case, Mr. Houghton was always there to calm my worries and allow me to see the situation through his methodical and professional eyes. Always aware of the urgent and unpredicable events of the case, Mr. Houghton returned my calls for advice as quickly as possible and on more than one occassion, called on his off days, over the weekend.
    I was finally awarded full custory of my children, and because of Richard Houghton, I no longer worry about their well-being and safety. I highly recommended Mr. Houghton for anyone going through a divorce, especially one in which children are involved.

  3. A competent. knowledgeable, informative and responsive attorney with a get the job done attitude.

    • I recommend Richard Houghton.
    • I hired Richard more than 3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Family law is not an area that is easy to understand and it involves a lot of emotion. Rick explained things to me in a concise and down to earth way without all the legal jargon that attorney's usually use. I was extremely pleased with the way he handled my matter and the results that he achieved. I would recommend him to anyone needing a family law attorney.
