Estates, Will, Real Estate: Superb
After handling my own estate arrangements & will, I called on Richard to review and then handle my interests in the settlement of my Mom's estate. I am SO thankful that I did. Somewhat unusual arrangements complicated by naive executors and shady real estate brokers -- that took quite a bit of legwork to work-out -- were superbly resolved by Richard. Richard's calm demeanor & knowledgeable explanations coupled with sharp insights resulted in successful resolution of a situation that could have easily spun out of control. His willingness to go the 'extra mile', with support from an excellent staff, and his updates allowed me to shed the worry I was experiencing, and feel confident that my interests were well-represented. Even potential adversaries in this whole experience were complimentary of Richard's work! I recommend Mr. Nguyen without hesitation for those involved with estate settlements as well as real estate transactions. I believe his services would be particularly beneficial to those preparing for the inevitabilities of estate arrangements, whether their own or a loved one.

Rare balance of compassion, skill, credibility, fair pricing
Richard advised me on a complicated property and court procedural matter for which there was no clear or obvious answer... he took all my questions seriously, researched his answers thoroughly and often on his own time late at night, and despite a busy schedule was always responsive and informed. Having worked with many more costly but less valuable lawyers before him, I wish I'd met Richard earlier.

LLC
Richard handled the establishment of an LLC for two investment properties for us. He went the extra mile in providing advice to assist us in properly setting up third party accounts.

Excellent VA attorney
Mr. Nguyen is a true professional. He identifies the correct legal issues right away and accurately assesses the likelihood of success in a dispute, choosing between litigation and settlement as appropriate. My family and I have consulted Mr. Nguyen twice, and in both instances our interactions were nothing but professional and insightful.

Very Helpful Advice
Richard reviewed my master lease and sublease to see if there were some specific changes I should make to minimize the likelihood of any future problems. He was very helpful on the phone with answering my questions/concerns.

Real estate settlement
I was beyond satisfied with Mr. Nguyen's performance in helping me in the sale of my property. The property was over a million dollar. He was able to fight and remove leans over $150,000 on my property which had been lingering for some 20 years. It required extreme patience, perseverance and knowledge to do what he did. I highly recommend him for any representation he will take. He comes across as a very honest reliable and comforting human being. He is not just there to grab your money but actually earns every penny he charges.

Excellent counsel - highly recommended
I have interacted with many attorneys in my personal affairs - Mr. Nguyen is amongst the best, working multiple angles and obtaining a good outcome. His legal research and resulting advice has been very useful for me even where I had some prior experience. I have had nothing but positive experiences working with him and it is such a relief for me to know that I have a trusted lawyer looking out for me. I would highly recommend Mr. Nguyen. Very satisfied overall!

Excellent Writer

The only lawyer I trust.
My wife and I wanted a pre-nup agreement prior to marriage and went through several lawyers who my wife felt were extremely condescending if not pompous. I did not deal directly with them, as they were "her lawyers", but from what she told me sounded as if they were completely self-serving and refused to deal with her unless she was willing to fight tooth and nail for more, without regard for what she actually wanted. Their billing practices were also what I would call generous. They asked for large retainers, which was unexpected for a relatively simple document that we wanted to make under amicable terms. Richard was straight-forward, honest, efficient, and easy to work with. His bill actually came in under what I would have expected for the amount of time he spent on it. I have also consulted him on other occasions for unrelated matters. He's confident without being cocky, but most importantly, he knows what he's talking about.

Would highly recommend Richard
Richard was referred to my company by a good friend a few years back and I have never used anyone else since. He's very quick to respond whether through phone or email. Richard is very knowledgeable about business laws and can quickly answer any questions I have right away. He makes you feel like he's a part of your team and not the other way around. I highly recommend Richard.

Professional Legal Representation
I've worked with many different legal practices and attorneys due to my business ventures. My experience working with lawyers range from international trade law reviews, business contractual agreement services with large national firms, to collection settlement and landlord tenant agreement consultation with a 2-3 partner firm. I most recently hired Mr. Nguyen to review District of Columbia's labor law on Non-Compeition agreements. He was swift and helpful in finding the facts and information on the subject matter and was able to provide professional counsel for the matter at hand. My experience with Mr. Nguyen have always been professional and constant. His approach from case to case always begins with a consistent and meticulous attention to detail. As a client, I've always felt confident that he will handle my case(s) with the outmost respect, virtue and accuracy. I would without any reservation recommend him for personal and business legal service needs.

Richard Nguyen
Richard did not have required knowledge or expertise to handle my case and failed to meet the deadline so the Judge denied what he filed, which resulted in tremendous losses. He failed to submit many documents of evidence by holding them too late to submit, failed to pay attention to the details of disputed amounts and important sections of the lease, so failed to defend me and attack the other party. He continually insisted his way against my will and proved himself that he was wrong after the adverse ruling was made. He was eager in order to take my case in the beginning but his eagerness faded away so that he could not even locate important documents.
