YOU CAN GET THROUGH THIS. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW I CAN HELP. NO-COST CONSULTATION.

It's all about the relationship with my clients — meeting their needs and helping to solve their problems.

Working with clients to navigate the ins-and-outs of their legal matters with confidence is where my 15+ years of courtroom and practice experience come into play.

My goal is to empower you to take full control of your case — before the legal system does.

My practice areas are limited to criminal defense, divorce and family law, personal injury, social security disability, and worker's compensation. I also limit the number of clients I work with at any given time, so that I can dedicate my time, attention, and resources fully to my clients.

Great Attorney!
I hired Richard for family court, I actually got his name as a referral from a family friend. Richard was very responsive, knowledgeable, and direct. With family court, emotions are high and I was appreciative of the time he took to explain everything thoroughly to me and made sure I was aware of what may or may not happen up front. He is confident and honest but easy to talk to, especially when my anxiety was through the roof during certain situations. We did go to court several times and he was great at explaining the process of what to expect. He is very fair on billing and I was never afraid to call or email him because of that. He was extremely patient throughout the case, which I know was difficult considering my ex and I do not get along at all. I highly recommend Richard to anyone going through the family court!

Incredibly Amazing Lawyer, pleasure to deal with even during a tough time.
Mr.House was and has been an amazing asset to have on my side. He is a very informative and intelligent when it comes to laws, court proceedings, and the areas of practice that he is does ( family/ child custody ) was area I needed. He is down to earth and really tries his best to be relatable and very compassionate toward his client and your situation. He has patience for drawn out situations which insures they are handled properly. He is honest, upfront and reliable and I would use him again and refer him to anyone I know. I live out of state and he still handled my case amazing and without delay. He was able to defend my side and prove facts and have the outcome as a win for me in the case. I can not express enough my joy, pleasure and gratefulness toward Mr. House and his handling of my case nor can I say enough or properly explain his workings on my case. He will get to know you and your case as a whole and lock in the time and effort to get the best outcome he can for you.

Extremely helpful
I had questions about a workman's comp claim. Since I didn't know my rights or didn't know how to respond back to the insurance lawyer who denied my claim . Mr. House called me back 5 minutes after speaking with his secretary. He took the time to answer all of my questions . He explained in detail all my rights. Thank you so much. A true gentleman

Approached a Hard Circumstance with a Human Touch
Divorce is a hard thing but one of the best things to come out of it is getting to know Richard. He approached every conversation with human compassion and kindness and was an absolute advocate for me at every turn. He clearly outlined all of my options and was never pushy with the choices I made. He communicated very clearly that the decisions were mine and he would support what I felt was right. Not once did I feel overwhelmed and confused by what was happening in the legal process. He just lifted all of it off of my shoulders and I don't think it could have gone any smoother. Thank you SO much, Richard. I'm so thankful to have had you representing me in my divorce.

Excellent attorney
Mr. House represented me in juvenile court to modify a parenting plan. I was wanting to become primary residential parent and he made it possible. He made sure I was prepared and all of my questions were answered. He was available whenever I needed to speak to him and he was quick to respond. I am forever grateful for the outcome of my petition and so happy that I found someone that I felt confident in representing me. He is hands down the best! Definitely my go to for any legal issues.

efficient, effective, and communicative
When I consulted with Mr House he was thorough, direct and informative. He kept me informed of the plan throughout, what was needed from me and the next steps. He was always accessible when I had questions. He made the horrible experience I was going through less stressful. I am beyond grateful to have him in my corner. He fought for me the entire time but was honest to keep my expectations realistic.

Kind, Knowledgeable and Available
I recently completed a consultation with Richard regarding a Family Custody issue. He provided more details and information than any attorney I have ever consulted. He was honest and really put himself in my shoes; giving compassion and understanding where needed. I will be contacting Richard for my family needs and would highly recommend his service to anyone looking.

Extremely helpful and that was over the phone!
I called Mr. House's office let a message and he actually called me back. He is a pleasure to speak with and very knowledgeable. He could not help with my case, but recommended another lawyer. I will be using his services in the future because he also does family law. I am looking forward to meeting him in person.

Very thankful!
I can’t tell you how thankful I am for Richard. He is the first attorney I have had that I felt actually cared about me and wasn’t just there for the money. He is truly sincere and a good person. He is very knowledgeable about the law and knows the right thing to do. He did in my representation. Thank you.

Thank you Richard!
Richard is one of the best lawyer and person i have meet. No one will ever wants to hire a lawyer, but if you do need one, Richard is your best bet. He understand your situation and care about your case. He will even go beyond what a normal lawyer will do and provide what you need. Before hiring Richard, i spoke to numerous attorneys and i the impression i had is lawyers just wants your money and couldn't care less with the results and rest of assure Richard is not that type of lawyer. Speaking to him has always been pleasant and he is always available to speak to you. Even after 2 years of case is finished, i'm still speaking to Richard regards on case because i need some old documents Again, no one wants a lawyer but if you do need one, Richard is the go to.

Fast, Personable, Empathetic, and Professional!
After interviewing a number of attorneys for my divorce, Richard was the standout best! He was quick, responsive, and empathic about the entire situation. Throughout the process he was extremely professional and personable, reflective of his extensive experience in the field. I could not have asked for better legal representation!

Peace of Mind
I was referred to Mr. House after I had an incident, and I would say because I contacted him, I was able to navigate a system that I would call completely foreign. Luckily, I'm not familiar with the legal system, and that's one of the main reasons, I would suggest reaching out to Mr. House. He did not overpromise, and instead tried to make sure I fully understood the situation so that together we could determine the best approach to get the most desirable outcome. Furthermore, when I needed additional assistance to get this fully resolved, he did not hesitate to provide me with what was needed. Thank you Richard.

Litigation Attorney | Sep 01
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I recently worked with Mr. House as co-counsel on a property damage claim (via fire) that involved an insurance company denying the client's claim. Mr. House took over the property damage claim from another local firm that decided not to represent their client after determining the claim was not worth their time or energy. Within just a few months of accepting the case from the other firm, Mr. House was able to obtain a settlement of the property damage claim that equaled the relevant insurance policy limit of $300K. As you can imagine, the client was ecstatic to obtain the settlement after the firm that represented him before Mr. House told him the case was not worth their time or energy. Mr. House is a fantastic litigation attorney that will truly fight for his clients regardless of the odds."
