Armstrong The Law Firm
Richard Armstrong has been our attorney for several years. His firm does an outstanding job for us. Mr. Armstrong is very responsive when he is needed and jumps right on things even when his plate maybe full. Our company relies very heavily on Mr. Armstrong's firm to represent us on a number of items. Mr. Armstrong is a very ethical and professional attorney. Anytime I have called or needed something on short notice Mr. Armstrong will drop what he is doing to address our immediate needs. We would not be where we are today without his professional services. I highly recommend Armstrong the Law Frim it is not your everyday law firm. You will always be treated with respect and given complete honesty no matter what your situation may be. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal advice or in need of legal help.

Professional, Exceptional, and Caring!
I had a most unfortunate accident in autumn of 2015 and didn't really know where to go. A friend from another law firm recommended Mr. Armstrong. At first I had doubts in even starting a case but after going through the process I have had absolutely no regrets employing Mr. Armstrong to represent me in my personal injury case. Mr. Armstrong and staff, throughout the years were insightful, caring, and dedicated to resolving my case. I personally felt blessed and even after the case they still provided information and suggestions for repairing my credit and being financially stable. I couldn't have asked for more, would highly suggest if I ever had a friend or family member in need!

He fought for our family.
Mr. Armstrong represented my family in a very difficult and heart wrenching matter involving one of our children and I felt that he not only represented us but that he cared about our welfare and that he fought for our rights and our protection. We were not only satisfied, but also grateful. Highest recommendation.

Highly recommend attorney
Mr. Armstrong's complete legal practice is wonderful, whether dealing with Mr. Armstrong directly or his assistant, both were very pleasant to work with. Mr. Armstrong is very knowledgeable as well as easy to contact. Mr. Armstrong completed my case in a timely and professional manner as well as helped me obtain the best possible outcome. Mr. Armstrong has a very communicative firm which is hard to come by and I cannot give them a high enough rating. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend Mr. Armstrong for any legal needs.

Looking For The Best Attorney Around ?
Ric has been our attorney and friend for close to twenty years. He has been and always is there for us no matter what our needs or issues are. I would trust him with my first born, my last dime and everything in between. I love it that he's unashamedly a Christian, which along with his amazing intelligence and knowledge shows in everything he does. He has got our back and has never steered us wrong, even though at times he knew we wouldn't care too much for what we were about to hear. Among many other things, Ric set up our corporation and maintains it. He has handled cases where clients didn't pay us, where vendors sold us substandard materials, where a bank did us wrong, etc. He did our wills and is the executor of our estate. He has advised us on countless issues. I would recommend Richard L. Armstrong to all those who want to be represented by unparalleled talent and integrity.
