About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

We think a lot about how we would feel, or what we would want, if we were in a client’s shoes. Being a family lawyer means more than just knowing the law. We factor in human nature and consider our client’s feelings as well as what the legal system provides. Instead of automatically assuming we will go to court for solutions, we find out what our clients' goals and needs are and then focus on finding the least-destructive and most effective and creative ways to resolve disagreements or meet their needs.

 

My preference is to use Collaborative Law whenever I can to resolve family law cases.  I have been doing Collaborative Law for over 10 years and spend a lot of time promoting it, since many people still are unfamiliar with it. I enjoy writing, speaking and teaching about Collaborative Law.

I have lived in Fort Worth for over 35 years. I have been married for over 25 years and have a son in college. My wife and I had an antique business on the side for several years, but  we closed up shop to allow more time with our son’s school and other activities. In my spare time, I was a Scoutmaster for several years and I coached a baseball team for eight years.

Excellent
Mr. Price and his staff has supported me for years through a divorce and child custody situation. While the opposition in the case was uncooperative and showed strong instability, Mr. Price worked diligently to provide me with fairness as it pertained to the courts, child support office, and my divorce decree.

Expert in collaborative and traditional divorce
I am so grateful to Mr. King for taking the time to meet with me and discuss my situation. He is a great listener and took the time to thoughtfully explain the difference between collaborative divorce and traditional litigation. I felt that Mr. King truly had my best interests at heart and talked to me about what would be best based on my circumstances. 10/10 highly recommend!

Professional, informative, and Supportive
The reason I retained The Price Law Firm was supportive staff and reasonable lawyer and prices. i always felt that my questions and concerns were addressed. I decided The Price Law Firm was the right firm for me because i did not want to punish or alienate my spouse but i did want to make the the split fair and the future easier for both of us to care for our children. mr price and his associates were fair-minded and strove for the same collaborative process that i had in mind. My favorite thing about working with The Price Law Firm was i always felt like i was listened to and that my questions were always answered. The outcome of this case was that my spouse and i were divorced in 4-5 months and we are able to remain friends an co-parents to this day. As a result, i feel like i’ve rediscovered who i was before marriage and thus have gained confidence in myself again. my children have blossomed having less stress and less resentment and anger between us parents making them unhappy as well. I feel very lucky to have had the guidance and support of Mr. Price and his staff to ensure that this process was handled by like-minded, experienced lawyers.

Amazing Lawyer and Respects Military!
I have had the pleasure of work through my divorce with Dick as my lawyer. When I came to Dick, I had just got out of the military and had been working on my divorce for 3 years. Dick took the time to hear me out and what I had wanted from the divorce. He always clearly explained what every charge he charged me for and why there was a charge. I would recommend to have your documents ready. He will scrub through the documents with a fine tooth comb. Divorce can be difficult but was more difficult as I slowly learned I had PTSD from the military. Dick never got upset and was very understanding. He was very supportive of my needs. After first I wanted everything from the divorce but Dick was able to get me to sit down and identify what was fair and correct. At the end of the divorce I walked away knowing I made the best choices and I don't think any other lawyer would have been able to give me the support he gave me. After working with Dick for 8 months, he was able to work with my wife's lawyer and come to a fair settlement. He did a great job of cleaning up a 3 year messy divorce in just a few months. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer!

Christian Hearted Conqueror
This lawyer (Mr. Richard Price) has been my family lawyer throughout my entire marriage. That is, before my divorce. He has seen how my opposition in the marriage has been at its worst. Me. Price has been steadfast in his approach to protecting me (his client) from injustice. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for his practice and his staff how they have confided in me for the truth and followed up on their professionalism to handle my case.

Exceptional
I used Mr. Price to help with my divorce. He was able to hear all of my concerns and clearly and concisely address them, giving me detailed explanations and accurate timelines. It was very much a leap of faith to hire him, but it was worth it. The phrase "you get what you pay for" could not be more true. From my initial consult, to a consult needed even months after the fact, Mr Price and his team were always available and helpful. His method is for an individual focused on amicable treatment of children during a divorce (and after), yet he made sure to also help make sure I was protected and got what I needed to feel safe and secure. I'm comfortable that I was set up for success with my divorce decree and would recommend him 100x over to anyone.

Great calm, wise voice in the storm.
I highly recommend Dick Price. My case was very contentious and seemed to never end....after switching to Mr. Price, he was able to help navigate to a solution for me and my kids. He was always thoughtful and I believe the Judges respected his voice.

Great !
MR. Price has been my family 's attorney for many years. Unfortunately there have been divorces and custody issues for me and my siblings. Mr. Price is very knowledgeable and helpful in navigating the family court process. He listens and consults with what you and your love ones in mind. He is very efficient and does not extend the process to gain extra fees.

Professional and Kind
Mr. Price was so wonderful during my divorce. Him and his staff were easy to work with and get in touch with in case of any questions I had or for anything I needed. They worked quickly and proficiently in getting all of the paperwork done and correctly. It was very nice to work with someone who cared about the way the divorce was handled and had mine and my family's best interest at heart. I would definitely recommend Richard Price to anyone I know who would require his services.

A wonderful attorney and kind person during a very difficult divorce
Mr. Price was a true godsend for me during my divorce. I was so glad to have found him. He and his staff handled my case with professionalism and courtesy. This attorney and his staff provided the support I needed so that I could actually concentrate on the emotional healing part of the divorce process. When you have an attorney you trust and can count on it makes all the difference in trying times. Mr. Price has been that attorney for me. I never felt alone or helpless knowing he was handling my case. I cannot say thank you enough for all his help. I can offer my highest recommendation to anyone who is facing divorce. This attorney really does care. He also returns phone calls and emails quickly. This is so important! You really really need someone you can count on and Richard Price is definitely that.

Professional, knowledgeable, gracious
I am a Certified Shorthand Reporter (Court Reporter) and have worked in the court system for over 30 years. When I needed a lawyer for my divorce, I wanted someone that both knew the law and that I could trust to guide me through the very important life decisions I needed to make, as well as someone I knew could work with other parties in a professional manner. I could not have been any more pleased with the representation and guidance I received from Dick Price, as well as that of his staff - very important! I would highly recommend him to anyone I know who needs the services of a family law practitioner.

Richard Price Review
Dick Price was referred to me by a close friend. I needed sound and reasonable advice on how to handle a non contested divorce. Dick was calm, compassionate, and so professional in answering my questions and guiding me towards the appropriate actions to take. I called Dick on several occasions when I needed guidance about deciding between annulment and divorce. He answered all of my questions and gave me sound advice on which route to take. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is going through a difficult divorce. He is very thorough in his work and very knowledgeable about the law. He also has a kind heart.

The Best of the Best
Richard has always reached beyond all my expectations, any time I have ever had to have the opportunity to need him in any capacity where it was to consult or hire him. If it was not his field of expertise, he always found three choice of attorney's I could use in that field. Which I have always found very helpful in what ever I have had to face in any legal situation. Richard is my first phone call for over 30 years. I will always call him my friend, because he is the best of the best.

Not sure how I could have made it through my divorce without his help.
I went through a very contentious divorce last year which was complicated by an unethical therapist and unrealistic mediator who fanned a lot of flames that helped make my ex-wife almost impossible to reason with. I was willing to concede almost anything just to get through the process with my sanity until Mr. Price walked me through all my possible options and helped me.

Simply the Best Attorney
Attorney Price was willing to help me through a very messy divorce even though I was not financial stable. He is a very compassionate and composed family attorney who is very well respected among his peers. He was always available by email or phone to respond to my questions. Attorney Price genuinely cares for his clients and is an exceptional attorney.

Out of State Child Sharing and Divorce
Mr. Price was amazing. I really believe he cared about the best interest of my son and me. I left Texas in the middle of the night due to domestic violence and he was caring and thoughtful towards my needs. He fought for my rights as a single mother and wife. He secured child support and long distance time sharing, ensuring that we did not need to move back to a devastating situation. He personally answered my emails and phone calls. I would 110% recommend him for any sort of family law.

The Real Deal, honest, intelligent- A Happy Surprise
My present husband wanted to help me make my small child's life better and we needed a great attorney. My ex husband had the insane idea of putting the little guy on ADD medication at an extremely young age at a dosage for a grown man. I have never been that afraid of anything in my life. Mr Price somehow managed to get us full custody with sole medical decision making powers-rare in Texas. Anyway fast forward, our son is on the A-B honor role, no problems in school and has forgotten all about being over medicated. A happy ending for all. Thank God for Dick Price, DDaniel
