    Dana worked for me while in law school, and then worked for one of my clients before returning as an associate in my firm. Dana handled landlord tenant and other real estate matters well, and maintained a personal connection with our clients. I was sorry to lose her to doing oil and gas title searching, but I now refer my clients who need those searches to Dana.

    I witnessed someting a few years ago that other lawyers and real estate clients need to know about. I had a very complicated real estate case two years ago, and Dana Richardson was my opposing counsel. I found Attorney Richardson was an extremely worthy opponent. Early on in the case, Ms. Richardson was prepared for all of our negotiations, and worked hard to settle the case without going to court in order to save her client money. Then, when we just could not come to an agreement, Attorney Richardson quickly changed gears and was completely ready, willing, and able to get her client what she wanted in Court. What impressed me most was that Attorney Richardson handled the unique emotional aspects of the case perfectly. She had to work extra hard to diffuse the emotion and keep the case moving forward to the goal line, and Dana did that so perfectly. Because of this, I would not hesitate to refer real estate cases to Attorney Richardson, and in fact, I do!
