  • Stuart L Plotnick

    I have known and referred clients in need of debt restricting or bankruptcy advice to Richard for a number of years. He is one of the best in the business and has always been extremely effective in getting them out of difficult situations. He can be very creative when he needs to be and is always one step ahead.

  • Jeffrey S Romanick

    I have known Richard for approximately 12 years. Over that time period, I have referred to him numerous matters that either I do not handle or for which my law firm has had a conflict. I have sent him clients in need of bankruptcy services, family law issues and criminal defense representation. The feedback I have received has been extremely positive. I highly endorse this lawyer.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Commission Reprimand
    issued in MD, 2014


    Richard’s comment: “I have represented thousands of clients successfully in bankruptcy cases. This case involved a complaint by someone who had not made a mortgage payment for over 4 years during the time that I represented him. We tried a loan modification in 2009 and two chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. He claimed we did not tell him that he needed to make the mortgage payments during the case and other things. I took a letter reprimand rather than go to court. I should have fought this in Court.”
