Richard did a fantastic job navigating me through the complicated process known as a divorce. I went through a very ugly divorce that threaten my relationship with my children. He kept me calm throughout process and he worked hard on my behalf to bring a solution that was better then I could have expected. I have Richard to thank for staying the course with me and helping save a father's relationship with his children. I would recommend him in a heart beat and I have already done so. Thank you Richard!
I found Richard Golden to be a fantastic resource when I was facing divorce in a 21 year marriage. His knowledge and many years of experience helped me to negotiate an extremely fair settlement without having to pay support. Richard was also very adept at managing the divorce process through our court system not only in the technical aspects of filing etc., but also having had the experience of previously working with the judge assigned to my case. His ability to communicate with opposing council was excellent and fostered a very “workable” relationship. Most attorneys don’t often receive credit for being good listeners, but in Richard’s case he was excellent and willingly listened to my needs and frequent venting! I would hire him again in a minute!
Mr. Golden confidently assisted me through the mine-field of the divorce proceedings. He was a steady and knowledgeable advocate, keeping me in the loop at every turn. He was supportive and calm throughout the entire process, and provided excellent resources and recommendations for auxiliary team members, i.e. forensic accountants, etc., in order to further vet optimum scenarios. I felt he worked hard on my behalf to create solutions and a fair settlement.
Richard Golden came highly recommended to me by a friend of mine who was a lawyer herself. I had a very difficult case whereby the other side made very damaging remarks as to my abilities and integrity. The barrage of complaints against me was truly terrorizing. This involved a marriage of over twenty years and I was trying to get some spousal support so that I could catch up in the workforce after staying home with kids, The other side constantly filed papers with the court with scathing remarks as to my character, and made claims to my owing him thousands of dollars. Richard patiently went through all my financial accounts for three years prior and crafted an excellent response such that there were no further financial claims on the other side. The claim was dropped.
This was a long, exhausting divorce. I really needed a lot of emotional support, and Mr. Golden provided that. He is very knowledgeable and did keep me apprised of what was going on in my case. I felt completely confident going into the courtroom (several times) that I would be protected from the nastiness My now ex-spouse made every attempt to emotionally batter me with spurious accusations lowball financial offers, foot-dragging, and legal filings. With Mr. Golden's assistance I was able to tolerate the trauma of this divorce and I received a settlement that was secure and more than met my needs. My well-being was at stake and Mr. Golden came through for me.
Totally ineffective in the negotiation portion of my divorce case. He was completely out classed by opposing council. The case dragged on endlessly and he made several errors on documents. I think he means well but is not on the top of his game.
