I am a Colorado attorney with nearly three decades of experience handling business and real estate transactions, assisting entrepreneurs forming new businesses and taking their businesses to the next level, commercial landlords in both office buildings, office parks, strip malls and shopping centers, internet and new media entrepreneurs and families with their estate planning needs, including wills, trusts, advanced directives and other issues. I am a native Spanish speaker and a graduate of Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, where I was on the dean’s list and was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award in trial advocacy. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Los Angeles with a major in history where I was also on Dean’s List and was a member of Phi Eta Sigma, a scholastic fraternity.

Kenneth Sprang, Business Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I am happy to endorse Richard. We worked on a project together some years ago helping a foreign manufacturer do business in the U.S. Richard is experienced, competent and a pleasure to work with. His practice is diverse and includes both business and non-business elements. Testimony to his competence is the growth of his practice after relocating from California. Richard is also an Irish musician, a passion he shares with his wife if my memory is correct. I mention that in part because in my experience lawyers with an interest in forms of artistic expression are often more balanced, even keeled, and easy to work with. I think clients will be most pleased working with Richard.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state also violated the rules for practicing law in California.
Richard’s comment: “This was a reciprocal suspension based on my Colorado suspension.”
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Richard’s comment: “I was reinstated in August of 2016 and am in good standing with the bar.”
