Rick got the job done. He was direct and judicious with his approach. Also, he knows the system and how to work in favor of his client. I would most certainly retain his services if needed.

No regrets
I was referred to Mr. Chizever by a colleague. At first, I was a bit hesitant as he was very blunt. Then I realized he is very passionate about his work and does not sugar coat. (Some do just to get your business) Needless to say, I got the results I wanted; monthly child support due to me and the time-sharing schedule for my child that works for me vs the other parent. I was a nervous wreck and contacted him a lot with many questions, yet he always responded in a timely manner. Considering he is mostly in a courtroom, he always replied. At times, it was way past business hours and he would still call me or email me. I would hire him in a heartbeat again, if need be. Thank you!

family case
I am more the pleased to say that I reached out to Richard Chizever to help me out with a family case and words can't describe how pleased I am with his work .I have been his client for more than four years, and always come back to him when issues arise in my case. Unfortunately , I have to litigate against my ex way too often, like now .Rick is an amazing professional and always available when needed. Even more importantly for me, he constantly reinforces to me that I am always able to reach out to him if I need him. I've had and excellent experience with him and recommend him 10/10.

Thank you for your services!
I would like to thank Richard Scott Chizever from the bottom of my heart for the great job she has done with my case. I had hired Richard for my divorce process. It was a complicated since i have my daughter in between. He was very attentive and considerate to me. The way he communicated with me through emails & phone was very clear, he had provided me with instructions to follow step by step to get success. He supported me during all the struggles. It took some time more time due to the covid. I finally got divorced and got my fair time share with my daughter. I got what i wanted and got out of the divorce without any problems. Richard is a down to earth guy, very clear and straight up forward. I will recommend him and will use again for any legal services. Thank you Richard i appreciate your help.

Richard has been a great asset!
Richard has been my attorney for over 3 years now in a family law custody case. Not only is he a very passionate litigator, he is the only family litigator (that I have hired) that actually cares about the outcome of the case. He is always available, night or day, an attribute very different from other legal professionals that I have hired. Although family law representation is expensive, his rates are the most affordable that I have found. He doesn’t Nickel and Dime you in attempts to run up bills, as I have experienced with other lawyers. If you are faced with a family law situation, I would definitely recommend to have Rick on your side!

My “go to guy”
I hired Rick to get something I was unable to receive for almost a year. Within a few days, Rick got me everything I wanted and more! He is aggressive, attentive, astute, and battles on behalf of his clients. I recommend Rick and his law firm to all of my friends. He is definitely my "go to guy" for legal problems.

A True Hero
I was very blessed to have found Rick Chizever in 2013. He picked up a very messy case with an ex husband who was not only a dead beat father but an incorrigible person. Rick was effective and efficient in challenging this heathen throughout a lengthly and challenging trial and I honestly do no know how I would have made it through without him. He is always available on his cell phone even in my moments of sadness and desperation from the tricks of my ex. Rick is still my attorney in a now post dissolution proceeding and I feel nothing but safe and secure with him by my side. I highly recommend Rick without reservation to represent and handle all forms of family court issues.

Aggressively and passionately fights for his client's rights
Mr. Chizever fights for your rights; even when you feel like giving up and "throwing in the towel." He is always available to take calls and assists his clients any time of the day. He is aggressive and will fight to the end to make sure his client's needs and rights are met. Importantly, since I had minor children involved in my family law proceeding, he always kept the best interest of the children in mind. Going through a divorce and battling your ex over money and custody can be a very painful experience. Mr. Chizever put that pain at ease with his ability to approach the legal issue at hand from a knowledgable and experienced standpoint. I would NOT want Mr. Chizever to represent my ex! I want him fighting on my side of the ring.

Dedicated, Aggressive, and Attentive Attorney
Rick Chizever is truly dedicated and attentive to my unique paternity case. I have worked in the legal field for over ten years and his level of commitment is unsurpassed. He has aggressively and strategically worked to achieve successful outcomes on every single issue that has arisen throughout my case. Rick gives absolutely nothing less than 100%. He goes above and beyond to make himself available to discuss case development even late at night and on weekends. I could not be more satisfied and would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Excellent, Professional and always Accessible
Richard has been handling the case regarding my son and rights I was being unjustly denied by the mother. Understanding the magnitude of my situation, he quickly filed for an emergency hearing and after a brief appearance before the judge; I was unconditionally restored rights to my son. I have been completely satisfied with Richard's performance, professionalism and accessibility. I can sincerely recommend him for family law representation.
