Such a help!
I consulted with him and he took time to explain what to do step by step. Very patient, easy to get along with, and I now feel relaxed about my situation. I can move forward with confidence.

Let me begin by saying that are very few occasions in my life that has warranted legal representation. So when one of those occasions arose, I found myself in slightly unfamiliar territory. I contacted quite a few law offices and decided to go with Steven Richardson and here’s why. At the core of Steven’s practice is a commitment to excellent customer service, uncompromised professionalism, compassion for his clients, and a broad ranging knowledge of the law. But what I believe set Steven apart (from the rest of the attorneys I’d previously contacted) was his ability to very quickly understand my personality type/specific needs and adjust his approach – accordingly. I like to think of as the difference between hearing and listening (which was extremely important to me). In addition to being smart, realistic, conscientious, efficient, hardworking, and responsive, Steven was an absolutely pleasure to work with (which made getting my case resolved EASY.)

Great Guy and Very Professional!
I am an MD resident and was hit with a DUI Reckless in Atlantic County. I found Steve's name on a frantic search before going back home. He was willing to take my case on, even though he said that he did not take on many cases outside of Gloucester County. He was easily reachable by email and phone, returning messages within 2 hours. My Reckless charges were thrown out of court and the minimum penalty assessed. Very stand up guy and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. I happily recommend Steve to anyone in Central/South Jersey!

Amazing Lawyer!
I received a ticket after a truck hit me on the highway and didn't stop. Mr. Richardson handled my case and was able to get it dismissed entirely. I have a crazy travel schedule for work as well and he was absolutely amazing about working with me and being flexible. He's super quick with communication too! I highly recommend him!

Exceeded Expectations
We were looking for a lawyer from the Gloucester County area to help my son with two traffic tickets received in that county. Found Mr. Steven Richardson’s information online and saw many good reviews. Decided to go with him and so very glad we did! All of those reviews were totally accurate. Mr. Richardson and his staff were always very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and responsive, way beyond our expectations. We were very happy with the outcome and highly recommend him!

Excellent attorney
Mr. Richardson was a bright light at the end of our very dark tunnel. He helped us financially get back on our feet and we are very grateful for his services. He was very honest and straightforward while being understanding and supportive.

My Chapter 13 Experience
Steven was very helpful with our situation and guidance to endure this process versus carrying debt into our retirement years. There were tough times during the five year course of action but his advice helped in every way. He did stress that when the plan was over that we would still experience issues to re-establish credit and that was spot on. The fact that it stays on the creditors report for 7 years or 2 years beyond your 5 year plan does have additional implications. I thank Steven for his guidance and support.
