Hired for Family Member
I hired Mr. Fuschino for a family member going through a very bad situation. The case took a long time to resolve- a year. Mr. Fuschino stuck through us the whole time, and was always helpful and professional.

Looking to win
We recently hired Mr. Fuschino after reading all the great reviews. As of right now the case is not yet resolved; hopefully he can knock this one out. He seems very professional and honest, but could see Mr. Fuschino ready to attack if needed. Will be posting another update soon....

Thank you so much !
Feels like weights been lifted off of my shoulders. Saved my job and well being. Richard got all of my charges dropped. He's very honest. He was always available when I called/texted, and answered all of my questions that I had throughout. This guy's the absolute best. Don't gamble on someone else.

Case discharged
I was so worried that I couldn’t afford trial because it was going to be expensive. Lucky for me and my family I was referred to Mr. Fuschino by another lawyer. He had the case discharged before trial saving me money and sleepless nights.

Great lawyer
Mr. Fuschino asked me to write this review. He represented me a while ago and was an absolute attack dog even though he was so polite. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer.

hired him completely ghosted me
I hired this attorney and paid him 2500 dollars to attend my preliminary hearing. He called me the day before my hearing, I told him I could not get there at 9:30 I had to come 2 hours away. He said the hearing wouldnt be called at 930 just text him to let him know the time of arrival. He called me at 9:30 saying my case was called. The receptionist called me telling me inorder to reschedule he needed more money. I asked how was that possible. After calling and asking and several emails I have no idea what happened wth my case. I have to hire another lawyer. never responded I dont know what the additional cost is no itemized bill as i requested. Completely ghosted me. Uncalled for and 100 percent unprofessional

Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I worked with Mr. Fuschino when he was a prosecutor at the District Attorney's Office in Philadelphia and I was opposing counsel. Based on this experience, I can say that Mr. Fuschino knows the law and he knows how to use the rules of evidence. I remember one time in which he needed to explain a particular evidentiary rule to the court. Mr. Fuschino is well-spoken and an effective oral advocate. He knows when to press a point in court and when to fall back. Mr. Fuschino knows the court system in Philadelphia through and through, and, as a former prosecutor himself, he can anticipate the prosecutor's thinking and strategy. I always appreciated how pleasant, reasonable and fair he was to opposing counsel. Finally, I believe that I can vouch for Mr. Fuschino's integrity."
