Incredible!
I am forever thankful to have Rich on my side for my separation case. It is never easy with children involved, and there were so many hurt feelings it was hard for myself and the other parent to see eye to eye. Rich sat and listened to my story, and immediately gave me insight and direction. Thankfully we didn’t need to go through the entire court process; we settled some differences through mediation. I applaud this mainly to Rich and his outstanding dedication and knowledge in our custody case. I would highly recommend Rich to anyone in need of a custody case lawyer; he is so easy to talk to, genuine, and clearly very knowledgeable in the family court system. He gave us (the other parent and I) the stepping stone towards a better communication line for our child. Thank you Rich, you are incredible!

Best Lawyer Around
Richard was amazing in the court room. He is always a step ahead and always was willing to answer any questions I had. Best Lawyer I have ever met!

Outstanding Divorce Attorney
I honestly don't know how I would have gotten through my divorce without Rich by my side. I had an extremely difficult and complicated case in many ways and Rich handled it with such ease. He knew every area that we needed to cover and went above and beyond to guide me through each step. His thoughtful and clever tactics blew me away. He always answered my calls, or returned them in a very timely manner and was very easy to get ahold of. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for an extremely knowledgeable yet down to earth person to represent them.

Very helpful and knowledgeable
I've found Attorney Rochlin to be very helpful. He has helped my family. I've felt comfortable with him on my side in hard times. If you need legal help I recommend that you use Attorney Rochlin.

The best!
Rich was no doubt the best lawyer in every way. He was thorough, direct and fought for me until he was satisfied with the outcome. He is caring, patient and understanding. I highly recommend Rich to anyone.

My experience was unpleasant
If you hire this individual to represent you, you will live to regret it. My experience with Rich started when he helped me with a home closing. That was actually ok. But A few years I hired him to represent me in a divorce. That was frankly one of my biggest mistakes. He is at times unorganized (never did he even provide an itemized bill - requested many times however) and at times he seems unable to even provide minimal guidance or even effective negotiations. In the end, with the divorce 2 weeks from "closing" he chose to retire from the case...which frankly was ok. Our relationship was strained to say the least. Again, for what you will end up paying this man, he is not worth it. Please also keep in mind that he is a one man operation with serious health issues. If you hire him, good luck.
