I have known Mr. Finci for twenty years. He is truly a great human being. He cares about his clients. In twenty years I have referred a dozen or so people to him, he has been successful in every single case. I do not know how he beats every case, but he does. Even though he is a criminal defense attorney, he handled an insurance case for me when several other attorneys were not successful. The insurance company paid $15000, the amount we were asking them to pay. He is just the best, period!

Richard Finci was the first criminal lawyer that I have ever had to hire. I was facing between 5 and 30 years with all of my charges. He somehow managed to get the prosecutor to drop all of the mandatory minimum charges and I didn't have to spend any time in jail. Instead, I got 12 months of unsupervised probation. I am extremely happy because I get to spend time watching my infant child grow instead of behind bars. With all of the stress of this whole ordeal, I accidentally overpaid Mr.Finci! He contacted me as soon as he recognize the problem and was honest enough to let me know that I had overpaid and issued me a refund! I use to say that an honest lawyer is an oxymoron but he changed my opinion. I really trust him and would recommend him to anyone who needs a good attorney.

Mr. Finci was recommended to me by a lawyer friend. My initial consultation was very efficient: Mr. Finci asked a few questions, told me exactly what I could do to help my case, and provided me with practical information about what to expect. He was always very professional, prompt, and straightforward with emails and formal letters. Mr. Finci made it such that the court appearance was very quick and resulted in an excellent result. Mr. Finci is very familiar with traffic law (among other types of law based on other reviews here!) and I highly recommend him!
