    • I recommend John Richards.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I couldn't be happy with JR! As a former police officer and as a property manager and businessman, I have worked with dozens of attorneys on both criminal and civil cases. JR is truly top drawer- was obviously well-versed in his area of law, outlined our options and strategies, very personable and understandable, kept me informed, responded quickly and was very fair in billing. JR truly puts his client's interests before his own - as all attorneys are supposed to do, but few actually do. You can't go wrong with JR.

    • I recommend John Richards.
    • I hired John 1-6 months ago.
    • John handled my Landlord / Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    JR represented us in a tricky dispute with a tenant and was exceedingly thorough in preparing a case for eviction for non-payment of rent. He was able to negotiate a settlement without needing to go before the judge saving us time and money.

    My absolute favorite attorney of all time.

    Wow, can there be such a thing? Yup. =)

    JR is one of the good guys.....not a billable hour bully.

    JR is highly competent, super friendly and easy to talk to, focused, listens, explains clearly, and handles things the way you want them handled-like having a lawyer in the family.

    He R-E-A-L-L-Y cares....and he knows his stuff. I have used him for issues as far ranging as libel, identity theft, real estate, taxes, property inspection, false service of process, and HOA law. Perfectly happy with everything he has done. Wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Can't recommend him enough.

    Richards Law is reasonable in price-and excellent in service.

    I have switched all of my legal work to his office, and the HOA I work with has done the same.

    JR gets results-the experience could not be any more positive!
    (sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming)

    Call him....you'll see.

    • I recommend John Richards.
    • I hired John 6-12 months ago.
    • John handled my Business matter.

    I had to go out of country before I could conclude a loan agreement (I'm the lender), so JR took over and began to gather documents he believes were necessary to evaluate the borrower and collaterals. He was knowledgeable and kept me informed with progresses by email.
