Where do I start? I hired Richard almost 2 years ago and I had no idea what to expect with a custody battle. I wish these custody battles upon no one. They are an emotionally roller coaster. Richard kept me in the loop on everything and explained to me everything that was happening or could happen. He listened to all my cares and concerns and if he wasn't available anyone in the office would help out as well. I started this ride with Richard by only getting 1.5 hours at the mothers convenience at her house then 4 hours at my parents to 8 hours on my days off. We continued to fight for more time and for the best interest of my daughter. After 2 years of court and mediation my daughters mother and I couldn't agree on anything so we left it in the judges hands. I felt confident about because of all the time and effort Richard and his team put in. As of July 15th of 2019 I got almost 50/50 custody and child support dropped substantially . I would highly recommend Richard if anyone has to go through any family law matter.

Great service. Very happy with Richard.
Richard was fantastic. He was organized, efficient, professional, and extremely compassionate during such a difficult time. He worked with my financial planner and with my now-ex to develop a fair and equitable plan. I can't say enough about how helpful and knowledgeable he was. He returned calls and emails promptly and I never once saw him get ruffled or frustrated. If you are looking for calm and capable, Richard is your guy.

Insured my child would have more doors open.
I am a father of 2 children Son(17) and Daughter(5). I was in a situation that I did not have a high expectation of persuading the court to rule in favor of my position. Single Father and all in MN. I presented my position to Richard in the comfort of their office, after interviewing multiple firms here in the twin cities, some of which even charged for me to find out that I did not feel comfortable with them representing my family. I had a clear line of communication with my lawyer any time I had a concern. I had a response back within the same day, if not 24hours. After collecting all necessary information, Richard and I set expectations and laid out a strategy we both, mostly Richard agreed upon. I felt like I was doing the right thing. I wasn’t even going to fight this fight. I felt comfortable with the expectation and we engaged the process at the correct time. It was very apparent that Richard has done this many times. He was very natural, confident, and comfortable in the court room. By this time however, so much work had been done that I was even feeling relieved to be in the court room. The documentation that was presented was done so well that the court made its decision in less than 30 days. I also should mention that it was drafted in such a way that even an appeal process would be very unlikely to cause concern. In the end the court did rule in favor of my position and even enforced some peripheral items that I had no intention or expectation of ever getting made right. If you want a firm with exceptional results (single father getting ruled in favor for 5 yr old daughter for example) this is a firm you should spend some time with, and share your story with any one of the staff. I started with a phone interview with Jeff Priest and was very impressed. I even called a second time for a bit more insight then came in and really got to know the team. It may cost a few dollars yes, but this is a life decision and they are big picture folks. And on that note, I would also add that no price can be put on giving a child the best opportunity possible, yet the cost of doing so with Priest Law Firm was much less than I ever expected. Thank you! Thank you! Not much more can be done but invite this team to a family dinner in 25 years when my daughter is doing whatever she achieves!

Knowledgeable, reliable and caring
Richard has been working on my family law case for some time now. From our first meeting, I felt that he had a good understanding of my concerns and would be a strong advocate for me. When I feel anxious about my case, Richard takes the time to explain why he's recommended a certain course of action, which goes a long way in helping me to feel confident in his counsel and our case. I feel comfortable asking basic questions because he never makes me feel bad for not already knowing the answer. I also feel that he is very efficient with his time, which keeps costs down. My case is complicated so I have asked him to handle the bulk of the details and communication. I've been pleasantly surprised when my invoices come in every month, the total always less than what I expect. I've never seen a charge with which I didn't agree. Additionally, Richard is always quick to return my calls and emails, regardless of how busy he might be. I don't feel like a number in his caseload, which I appreciate very much. I'd also like to add that everyone I've met in this office is friendly and helpful. They take a team approach to their cases and they will know who you are when you call or come in. I am profoundly grateful to everyone at this firm.
