Richard will promptly answer any and all questions with a level of professionalism and patience that is beyond the norm. He is knowledgable and willing to do his very best for his clients. His staff is just as curteous and professional and during the difficult process of filing for bankruptcy this means quite alot. I highly recommend him!

Bankruptcy is a very sensitive issue. The reason an individual files can be for a variety of economic circumstances known only to them and their lawyer. Getting prompt attention before and after filing is quite important. Mr. Fonfrias makes sure he answers all e-mails and phone calls on the same day. He also hires staff that is reflective of his mission and an extension of himself--kind and courteous. I would recommend him to anyone who must make that critical decision in their life.

This was scary for us and Richard not only served as our lawyer, but also coached us, was patient with us, and helped us through one of the hardest things we've ever done.
