    I consider Richard to be a superb entertainment and trademark lawyer. His reputation as a first-rate attorney is well-founded. He is a dedicated and meticulous professional and a very warm and congenial person. Anyone who faces issues relating to the arts or intellectual property would be well-served by Richard. I highly recommend him.
