  • Thomas Richelo

    I endorse this lawyer. I've known Hal since 1980 and practiced with him for nine years. We have stayed in touch ever since. We tried one case together and worked on a number of matters that didn't go to trial. Hal is bright, thorough and gets great results. He won a trial on liability back in the 80s that was then settled confidentially but otherwise could have been a landmark decision against a very big opponent. In his firms over the years he's been a big producer, as clients recognize his accomplishments, and a mentor to many. I count him among the top litigators with whom I would be more than comfortable in referring important business.
