Excellent attorney. Very knowledgeable, will put you at ease and go above and beyond!
I hired Mr Blumenthal after he was referred to me by a family member I trust. I was going thru a stressful bankruptcy and was looking for someone that I could count on to help me thru the process. Mr Blumenthal was easy to contact, quick to respond, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable in every question I had. Not only did he answer all my questions, but he took the time on his own to look into things that might benefit me before I even asked about them. It’s nice to hire a lawyer and in the end feel like you got your money’s worth. If you are looking for someone you can trust who will get the job done and walk you thru the unfortunate process of dealing with a bankruptcy, this is your guy!

An Excellent Lawyer - A Good Person
Attorney Richard Blumenthal helped us file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Everything worked out perfectly. The need to file for bankruptcy was a difficult time in our life. The process was made much easier by Mr. Blumenthal's genuine concern for our well-being. He is an extremely knowledgeable and careful lawyer who worked with great dedication on our behalf. We are very grateful to him.

Rick Blumenthal
Rick was patient, professional, non-judgmental and supportive in guiding us through what to us was a very bleak and hard financial quagmire. He helped us decide what was best for us while pointing out the many detailed points of law without ever making us feel bad about the situation we were in and gave us encouragement about our financial future. We would highly recommend him without reservation.

Fantastic Bankruptcy Attorney
As an individual who advocates for people with disabilities I have had the opportunity to refer several clients to Richard Blumenthal. In each and every case he has been fantastic. He does not hesitate to tell people when they should just save their money and avoid the process. He always gives good unvarnished advise. Heck he even takes my calls after one of my clients stiffed him. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard for anyone who has to go through what can be a humiliating process. He treats clients with great dignity and respect.

Rick helped me with an incredibly difficult and stressful situation. His knowledge, negotiation skills, patience and compassion are just part of what makes him a great attorney (and person). I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the case he handled for me and I would, without hesitation recommend him.
