About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

I have over 17 years of experience helping people resolve their financial issues. Before forming my own law firm back in 2007, I worked for a very large consumer bankruptcy firm and received extensive training and expertise.  

 

I have assisted many thousands of clients in stopping the garnishment of their bank accounts and wages, saving their homes from foreclosure, stopping repossession of their cars and even getting their cars returned to them.  I have also worked out payment plans to allow clients to catch up on past due payments on their home and cars and have assisted in restructuring loans to reduce interest rates and balances owed.  

 

I truly care about my clients and work hard to make sure their interests are protected.  My mantra is to treat people the way I want to be treated.  I know that when people come see me they are at a low point in their lives and that I can help bring peace by resolving their financial issues.  I strive to respond quickly to my clients' concerns whether it is late in the evening or on weekends.  I offer expertise along with personal and attentive service.

If you're like me, then you always read reviews before making a decision whether its a restaurant, doctor, movie, or in this case, an attorney, and you always want to make sure you made the right decision. Let's just say I did the work for you. I was nervous since I was unfamiliar with the bankruptcy process so I actually contacted 4 attorneys to see who could provide the best service, information, accessibility, and price. All 4 attorneys provided a "free consultation" which was essentially talking to you on the phone for 10 minutes then asking you to come in for the initial meeting where they charged you $75-$100. The only attorney that was different was Rich- I called to set up an appointment and he actually spent an hour explaining his strategy on how to tackle my case! This was surprising and it shows that he genuinely cares and was willing to address my concerns. You also worry that once you decide on an attorney and you pay the fees, that your calls or emails go unanswered, but someone always returned my concerns within the same day. I also had an issue where a company tried to garnish my check and Rich was able to reverse the garnishment within 24 hours. This involved reaching out to the Court, the 3rd party attorney, and my payroll so it was not an easy task and for that, I am extremely grateful. Rich and his amazing team of paralegals definitely deserve all the 5 star reviews that they receive. I would not wish bankruptcy on anyone, but if it is something you are considering, reach out to Rich and he will help you through it!

wonderful caring attorney
I was overwhelmed with debt and the endless phone calls. I emailed Chandler- Pecoraro late one night when I couldn't sleep because I was worried. Rich responded to me right away and was able to work me into his schedule to see me right away. When I met him, he was very patient with my many questions and took time to make sure I understood and felt comfortable with the process. Throughout the entire process, he always responded quickly to my concerns. I am so thankful I found my way to him on that sleepless night. I recommend him highly !

Caring and professional - Best bankruptcy law firm in Richmond!
Rich and his law firm made me feel comfortable from the first day I walked in the door. I went to some lawyers who barely spent any time with me and just threw some numbers at me like I was wasting their time. Rich really seemed to want to help me and took the time I needed without looking at the clock. He also handled some sensitive matters in a very professional way. I really appreciated that. Now several years after walking in his door, I am finally finished with my case. I am so thankful Rich and Rosy were there for me the whole time. With all the ups and downs over the last few years I wouldnt have made it without them. Best bankruptcy law firm in Richmond!
