    • I recommend R. Missimer.
    • I hired R. Missimer 1-6 months ago.
    • R. Missimer handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Mr. Missimer called me back right away and helped me solve issues without needing to hire an attorney! He sounded like he actually cared about me and my case, that is important to me, with a lot of lawyers out there acting like jerks. He was also extremely knowledgeable in his field and in Rock county, which also helps tremendously. I have called and talked to dozens of lawyers, Mr. Missimer is the first to make a difference in my intuition for hiring lawyers.

    • I do not recommend R. Missimer.
    • R. Missimer handled my Family matter.

    Richard was very polite, response time to emails and phone calls was excellent and the work he did on my case was ok. Richard could consolidate emails and information better to eliminate the need for so many transmittal's back and forth between attorney and client. He also could be more accommodating to his clients needs.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I am completely shocked. I have not had a client express concerns of this nature to me directly. I am not sure who this client could be.
      Email is a preferred method of communications because it does allow both parties to have a written record of what has been said and a reminder of the plan. But it has its limitations. One of which is that is makes it hard to find answers when multiple questions have been asked. So, often having separate emails to answer one question at a time is used to make sure that the answer has been seen by the client.
      For the record on average email billing is three(3) for 0.1 hour. Since most attorneys charge 0.1 per email this is a huge savings for the client. Emails are by far the least expensive way to communicate with me.
      I am sorry if you thought it in anyway ran up a bill. If you are in fact a client, and have concerns about the bill please bring it up to me.
      My billing practice is to bill everyone at least once per month. Twice per month if the interrum bill exceeds one hour. I do this to ensure that the client can remember and reasonably review the bill without a substantial gap in time. I personally hate it when an attorney has waited to bill six(6) months. It makes it almost impossible to remember and feel comfortable that the amount is correct. Yet this in not that uncommon.

      Again if you have billing disputes please contact me so that we can work it out. I look forward to hearing from you.

    • I recommend R. Missimer.
    • I hired R. Missimer more than 3 years ago.
    • R. Missimer handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    My wife and I entered into a divorce in November of 2010. Because we both were in agreement with the division of property, Richard Missimer recommended we go to court Pro Se, thus minimizing his fees. Richard was always there for us to answer our questions, unlike any other lawyer I have dealt with in the past. I would rate him on the top of my list for good honest legal help, and plan to use him if needed in the future.

    A PERSONABLE PROFESSIONAL

    When I initially retained Richard Missimer in 2001 he was a patent agent plying his skills while continuing his quest to get his law degree. He has since accomplished his goal becoming a licensed patent attorney and he did so along the way in a very personable manner.
    During the last eight years of working with Richard I have come to know him more as a friend than a professional. Besides being very proficient at protecting my intellectual properties, he was always willing to take the time to answer my many questions on a wide range of subjects.
    Life is so very short and it’s important to me that, when ever reasonably possible, every moment be spent in a friendly manner. When choosing professional assistance in business and personal matters, I go to great lengths to seek out personable individuals. I do so because I have learned over the years that when searching for a professional to work with in a relationship spanning the term of many years, such as with patent protection, it is advisable to be amongst friends. Richard Missimer has been and continues to be a good man that I am thankful for having met. Attorney Missimer is fair, reasonable, caring, wise and down to earth with a sense of humor that is only surpassed by his legal savvy.
    When I was invited to comment on his Avvo listing, I thought about the many thousands of dollars of services he has provided protecting my interests. What made this costly exchange with Richard so easy to accept was knowing that along with services I received, I knew in my heart that Missimer is just the kind of person who can bring a sense of warmth to an otherwise cold and calculating legal system. In closing I recommend Richard be cloned so the likes of his professionalism remain in the future’s gene pool.

    I have worked with Rich professionally in the past. His technical knowledge is extensive and well thought out. He brings this experience and knowledge to his legal profession. He helped me with an arbitration situation that I was in and gave sound and applicable advice. I would trust his advice and would recommend him professionally.
