If you are not happy with my service then neither am I.  Let me fight for you and show you a lawyer that you can actually like. #CUINCRT

Great First Inpression
I haven’t even had the chance to officially hire Mr. Richardson yet and already I am impressed. Within minutes of requesting a consult, he was already in contact with me. Very upbeat, respectful, professional and outstanding sense of urgency! He has scheduled our consult for the very same day and mad accommodations to ensure we still had our consult even though I live almost 2 hours away! Great things to come from this attorney!

Gets the job done!
Norwood stepped in when I needed him the most. With my first offense, and recently moved from Houston, I didn’t know anyone. He took pride in being available and always knew the answer! I would definitely use him again.

Real Deal
Atty Richardson was a blessing to my family. We had multiple issues and multiple agencies involved in my case. He thoroughly explained my rights and charges I was facing. He didn’t just throw plea papers in front of me and pressure me to sign. I had options. He made sure I knew of my options. In the end, my case was dismissed and I got my kids back. He was a messed up situation and Atty Richardson got me through it. Don’t be dumb and hire a cheap bum. Richardson law firm is the way to go

Dismissed
If you want an understanding, hard working,professional Attorney; Mr Richardson is your go to guy. He made my experience less stressful and assured me he would take care of my case, and he did just that. He fought for my job wages and cleared my name. I highly recommended Attorney Richardson.

Great Lawyer
If you're in need of a good lawyer for whatever the matter, look no further. I recently dealt with two cases, 1 felony, and the other a misdemeanor. Mr. Richardson was professional and knowledgeable about the facts surrounding my cases and was able to counsel me through the advantages and disadvantages of the choices offered. In choosing to stay the course, both cases have been dismissed. It was a long fight, lasting about two years in court, but through sound counsel, that battle is over. I urge you to consider Norwood Richardson as you come to your decision for a lawyer. He was a great choice for me, I'm sure he will be the same for you.

Personal injury support!
Attorney Richardson was no only instrumental in helping me win the suit, but coaching me through that step by step recovery process. Getting into a physical condition such as the one I was in as a result of my accident puts the human psyche in a state of panic-depression and I honestly don't who what I would have done without him. I would absolutely recommend his professionalism, services, & expertise to anyone!

Dismissed.
Mr. Richardson was very thorough and passionate about my case. He made sure that I was kept in the loop about what was going on and made me feel like I was an important client. I am very grateful for all the work he did to get my case dismissed. I even referred a friend to him and her case was dismissed too. I hope to never need him again, but if I do-- I know he will work hard for me. He is sometimes hard to reach, but he gets the job done.

Noble Lawyer
So I hired this lawyer twice actually. He was always up front with me and was very good at explaining everything. He ended up getting my case dismissed. This dude is a good and honest lawyer. I will use hm every time and he is the only lawyer that I refer people to.

Great Lawyer and Refreshingly Honest
I had a motorcycle accident and didnt know where to start. A friend of mine referred me to Norwood. He came to my house and took pictures and kept me informed throughout the entire process. He got me a great settlement that allowed me to pay off my medical bills in full, purchase a new Motorcycle and have money left over. He exceeded my expectations.

Leaving my child hanging
We hired Mr. Richardson and paid the fee's. He has ignored numerous calls and text messages. With that being said he has pushed this date back numerous time's.
Response from Norwood Richardson March 25, 2023
Unfortunately this appears to be fraud as it is posted anonymously. All of my clients have my personal cellphone number and know that I try to always make myself available to them 24/7. If this is a real client I would strongly encourage you to reach out to me via text message, email or a phone call as soon as possible. My reviews speak for themselves.
