Best lawyer!
I hired Mr Corbit to represent me in a case that took four years to set a trial date! He requested a motion to dismiss and we got it! Huge relief. He knew my cases forwards and backwards. His dedication lead to my dismissal. I would definitely use him again and will refer him to my friends.

DWI/DUI-Contact Richard
Charged with DWI. Contacted Richard and everything was handled with the utmost efficiency! Case was reduced from a Class A Felony to a Class B Misdemeanor by way of Richard's tireless effort! Fantastic performance!

An Incredible Attorney
Richard is an excellent attorney dealing with child possession cases. He is very knowledgeable, honest and straight forward. He will tell you like it is and give advice based on his professional and well informed knowledge of the law. After dealing with a very difficult case on my own and with other incompetent lawyers, Richard was able to solve the issues and bring both parties to a reasonable resolution. He did this efficiently and did not waste any billable time. I am very grateful for having found Richard and highly recommend his services.

A lawyer who’s reputation precedes him !
Attorney Corbitt’s representation for me has been a complete miracle. At age 41 I found myself in an unfortunate predicament. When Attorney Corbitt took the case he consulted with me and explained every detail to the letter and educated me on my rights and maid plain all pros and cons related to my situation. At the completion of the case literally almost every disadvantage to the situation Attorney Corbitt had dissolved ! I am grateful for Attorney Corbitt’s tenure and unmatched ability that granted me ultimate success in a very unfortunate ordeal. Thank you again Attorney Corbitt !

Mr. Corbitt is well respected and for good reason
Richard has represented me twice with unbelievable results. Collin County charges dropped "in the interest of justice"! Who else can do that? Carrollton; partial time served... unheard of! He has experience with the judges and magistrates across the metroplex. He works at an amazing speed to get the best results for you and your loved ones. If you want outstanding representation Richard Corbitt is the man to call.

Excellent Lawyer
I am the mother of my young son Nathan and would highly recommend Attorney Richard Corbitt. He was very successful in all the cases in Dallas, Denton, and Fort Worth for the last 10 years in which he represented my son. I feel he is the best lawyer in the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex.

After only speeding and being arrested for fleeing the police Richard was able to get the charges reduced to speeding and deferred adjudication.

Professional Experiance
I recently retained Richard Corbitt to represent me in a case. He was able have the case dismissed even before trial. We had prepared to go to trial and I am 100% confident we were prepared to net the same outcome. His knowledge of the laws and previous rulings related was very impressive. I would strongly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

Great lawyer
I hired Richard and within the hour was bonded out on a very large bond. He got with another attorney and together made things happen even when the state had "two confessions". Even with everything they said they had against me I still received a plea bargain of 3 years deferred probation. And with the charge I had, this was unheard of supposedly. In Smith county as well. Thanks Richard I know I'm late getting you a review.

Top of the line
Mr. Richard and his staff is incredible! Made me feel very comfortable about my case.. Mr. Richard was very clear from the beginning to the end on what he was planning to do. He had a plan and stuck to it.. I can be a procrastinator at times on getting things done. Corbitt was on me to do what I needed to do and in the end it all worked out for the best.. wish I could give more than 5 stars, because he deserves it.. I’ve actually already referred a friend for a divorce case in which she was very happy with the consultation.. Thank you Mr. Richard and staff...

Best Lawyer
I retained Mr. Corbitt to handle the adoption case of my son. He was thorough and honest every step of the way and made sure my son would be protected through the adoption. He truly cares about his clients and he covers every base. I ha e recommended numerous friends and family to him and all of which have been ecstatic with his competence and first class service. You will not be disappointed hiring Richard. The best attorney in my opinion and is a winner.

When you think there’s no way you can win
Richard Corbitt clearly painted an accurate picture of what my legal status was from our initial consultation. He then laid out a consise, accurate detiailed legal strategy. That he and his legal team executed flawlessly. Filing motions to suppress evidence, to getting charges dropped at pre trial hearings, he did it all! Whenever we were at the courthouse for an appearance at least one other attorney would approach Richard for advise or strategy on one of their cases which Richard would always Stop to help. This impressed me that his peers would seek out his counsel. Wen my expectations are met I happy. But when my expectations are exceeded, I’m thrilled! Richard Corbitt’s handling of my case exceeded all of my expectations. I am forever grateful and cannot reccomend him highly enough.

I had been charged with a felony assault in 1996, I had an attorney who kept coming back telling me what the d. A . Was offering. I fired him and hired Richard, he intimidated the D A so much threatening to take it to trial they dropped it to a class A misdemeanor. Also when he walking in front of me in the courtroom, every attorney stood up to shake his hand like I was walking with the pope. Richard is the top attorney not in Texas, but the U S in my opinion. If your in trouble, he is your guy.

Excellent Defense Attorney
I hired Attorney Richard Corbitt to defend my son, on a referral from our family attorney. We knew from the get go that we would need someone of Attorney Corbitt’s caliber for the job. He has done an excellent job of communicating every step of the way. I highly recommend this attorney.

Excellent and Competent Attorney
I hired Mr. Corbitt for his knowledge in Family Law. Richard Corbitt knows his stuff! He is one of the top Attorneys in Dallas. I feel that Richard Corbitt puts forth 110% in his representation of me.. He is honest, straight forward, and cares about his clients. He is prepared and takes the time to listen. Many attorneys just go through the motions....not Mr. Corbitt! He truly deserves his awards and accolades. The AV preeminent rating is the pinnacle of professional excellence earned through a strenuous Peer Review Rating process and is the highest possible rating in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards. That is most impressive! I highly recommend Richard Corbitt. Thank you for all you do Mr. Corbitt!

Greatest Family and Criminal Lawyer in Tx
Richard is one of the most well versed family and criminal lawyers around. I have used him personally several times for family law and the adoption of my son. He covered every base and made us feel comfortable the whole way through. He was courteous and no BS. He is worth every penny. As a second testimonial my cousin was arrested for assault on a public servent and it truly was an accident with her vehicle. Richard got the entire case thrown out. This was a felony if convicted and he made sure it didn’t even go to trial. If you need a lawyer hire Richard he is the best.
