Be careful. Check your bills. Found the attorney was billing for work of others that were not authorized per the agreement. Gratefully caught the "mistake" and even more grateful that it was corrected. But watch your bills. Also, this attorney seems to lose control of the process when faced with aggressive, delay "trial tactics" opponent.

Rich breaks the mold. Works nights, weekends, and holidays to keep the ball moving. Very happy with the handling of my divorce from start to finish. Would recommend to all, and I usually stay away from recommendations.

From handling my divorce for me expeditiously to continuing to network contact to my entire families benefits, Rich was and always will be there for us.

I endorse this lawyer. We were adversaries on a matter and I found him to be reasonable while strongly advocating for his client. We were able to settle the case to both parties' satisfaction. I look forward to working with him again.

It's hard to say enough about Richard. I clerked in the Family Part in Bergen County back in 1996 for the Hon. Donald W. de Cordova, JSC (ret), and Richard was legendary. I was told by the outgoing clerk to save copies of everything he filed as it would be great study materials. At oral argument, he was one (among VERY few) who could persuade my judge to change his mind at oral argument - tops. I seriously considered moving to Bergen County (I commuted from Mercer) so I could work for Richard. He's been my standard referral for Bergen cases since then. If I needed a Bergen County attorney personally and could afford him, I'd retain him in a heartbeat. Top marks!
