Rich knows land law. He listened to our case and gave us valuable advise. He knows oil and property rights. I can not thank him enough for his help and concern. One brilliant guy, knows how to fight in and out of court for your cause.

Very effective and efficient
Mr. Raiders has represented our family in several very difficult situations. Always available and responsive, he has helped us resolve one case and has made very good progress in other matters. He responds right away and has won the matters brought to Court. Highly recommended.

Lacking communication, organization and professional skills
I had hired Mr. Raider to assist me in negotiating damage to my home caused by underground drilling by Columbia Gas. I signed his fee agreement and gave him a $1000 retainer. The agreement emphasized the need for communication, but that was one of the most lacking skills he had. I repeatedly asked for a invoice after 2 months and finally received one that was not reviewed as the same billing reason was put down for 2 dates out of only 4 itemized billing items. I ended up replacing him and asked for the remainder of my retainer. After numerous emails, he finally returned my files almost 3 months later without the $120 left of my retainer stating that it would cost that much to close my file. The envelope he sent my files in cost $6.94 and also had included another client's information who I did contact to make them aware of his disorganization and release of confidential information.
