A winner - Amazing Lawyer
I have hired Richard Weaver and The Weaver Law Firm on many many projects over the years. I have hired Richard Weaver on business, Construction, and Real Estate matters. He has handled extremely complex transactions, simple ones too. And he has knocked it out of the park on my litigation. Prior to meeting Mr. Weaver, I have had other attorneys, but now I see what I was missing out on. Those other lawyers do not compare. Mr. Weaver is extremely strategic while watching your expenses. He is not a lawyer just trying to run up your bill. He has talked me down from situations where I wanted to run up my own bill and showed me that there are easier and more cost effective means to establish the same goal. I highly recommend!!! Do not make the mistake of hiring someone else and calling Mr. Weaver when it’s too late.

Problem efficiently solved
My Homeowners Association fined me, threatened further legal action, and refused to acknowledge my letters, emails,  and phone calls to them over a three month period; regarding my ivy covered courtyard fence; which has been on my fence for years.  Apparently one of the board of directors  took a dislike to it and began this campaign to make me remove it. Trying to find an attorney to assist me was difficult, as many attorneys wanted nothing to do with HOA matters; stating it can be costly, time consuming and generally not worth their trouble.  In reading about other cases; I read some cases go into the tens of thousands into the hundred thousands. I had a mental budget as to how much I could devote to this issue.  I spoke to Mr. Richard Weaver and was given a general cost to begin the process. This was during the Covid 19 pandemic so all matters were handled by email and phone calls. One letter from him citing at least five legal doctrines of laches (I learned a new term)  stopped the process, and my HOA and their management company agreed what I had on my fence was acceptable. I cannot thank Mr. Weaver enough for taking this case on when no one else would assist me, his professionalism, knowledge of law, and what turned out to be an extremely reasonable cost in my case.

Excellent Business and Real Estate Attorney
I have both worked alongside Richard and consulted him for his insight and guidance on numerous cases. Richard is an excellent attorney who works hard to build a personal relationship with his clients and develop innovative, focused strategies that achieve their objectives. Because he is so knowledgeable and has a broad range of experience across business and real estate legal matters, plus the fact that he is board certified in residential real estate, I can always count on Richard to offer a fresh perspective or a novel solution.

Construction Contract Litigation
We hired Richard because of his teams expertise with real estate contracts and construction issues. His attention to the details of court proceedings particularly wrt meeting deadlines and making the layman comfortable with the legal terminology were other plus factors. Accordingly we have recommended him to friends

Glad I called
I called Richard on the recommendation of a title company. He was able to get issues with my home’s deed and a release of lien worked out. Thanks to his diligent efforts, I was able to avoid breaching my contract and closed on time. I have hired other attorneys in the past, but none of them have treated me with the grace and kindness that Richard has. Thank you, sir. I’m glad I invested in your services. I have recommend you to my family and friends.

All my trust and all my confidence in Mr. Weaver.
This review is long coming. I've hired Mr Weaver for multiple matters. From the small real estate documentation review and consultation all the way to complex partnership/business legal services. He is confident and knowledgeable. His staff works hard to serve his clients well. There is no one I would trust my most important legal matters to other than Mr. Weaver.

Excellent Real Estate & Construction Lawyer
I am very glad and grateful that I hired Richard Weaver. I would not hire anyone else!!! A few words to describe him is excellent, impeccable, thoughtful, caring, responsive, and easy on the pocketbook. Richard Weaver has handled several real estate and construction matters for me. The first time I used him was related to the purchase of a home for my family. I was not using a Realtor so he helped me with the contract, negotiation, the inspection process and closing. He was very attentive, quick to return my phone calls and answered all my questions. I then used him when I sold my home, purchased a new home, the purchase on two investment properties and the sale of one. His knowledge of real estate law is top notch. When I had a problem with a contractor, I sued the contractor and won a nice size judgment. His knowledge of construction law and the construction process is strong.

Real Estate Closing and Creditor Dispute
Immediately impressed, Hired Weaver Attorney's to Negotiate a Reprice on New Construction, verify if Home Builder defaulted on their contract, charged us an exorbitant amount of money for reviewing 30 page document that said nothing, hired in February 2019 terminated October 2019; Never followed up with Credit Dispute; my cases were neglected with an advancement of nonrefundable fees and did nothing. Still have not closed on our Home and potentially lose a Home due not taking on our case with great integrity, along with taking the time to study our contract in great detail with analysis and provide at most a resolution with options. Weaver and Assoc still continuing to invoice us for doing nothing.
