My experience
My experience working with John Richmond was everything I was hoping it to be! I had anticipated pressure to make decisions I did not want to make Instead he was patient, understanding, explicit, and very approachable. His was very professional, and mild mannered when dealing with me, but very stern, knowledgeable, and strategic when dealing with the other party. I cannot say enough, other than he worked diligently to get me the best settlement possible. I highly recommend him.

The best law firm around! Great service and fast!
My mother was represented better than I could have ever imagined. Her needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. Our opinions were valued and our doubts were always reassured. John fought hard for us, and provide us updates frequently. John went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Greatly appreciated! Thank you!
