Richard always told me the truth up front. No matter whether it was good or bad he never sugar coated anything. He fought for me and kept me informed of my case constantly. He was responsive to all my phone calls and is extremely knowledgeable about criminal law. Richard is one of the few lawyers in town I could trust and rely on! He doesn't just take your money but he actually fights for your case.

I am extremely satisfied with the incredible criminal defense representation I received from Rich. The level of professionalism exceeded my expectations throughout the process. During trial Richard was clear and concise with a powerful presence that commanded the courtroom. Thanks to Rich, I won my case!

I am certainly glad that we found you and that you took the case on. Your information you provided was always 100% dead on and you made it easier for us to understand what was going on and how to deal with both cases.
Rich's advice on not one but 2 cases helped us and our son through a difficult time. Rich was only able to take on one of the cases, however he provided many answers and advice on the second case which walked us through using a public defender and getting all the required paper work to make a final decision.
Rich took the initial case to trial, was always there during many court appearances to get everything done, he kept us informed of all the steps required, he provided an expert witness, and the case was dismissed as the officer did not appear due to Rich's due diligence.
A very BIG THANK YOU RICH!
We are a reference for you, if we run into someone who needs help we will send them your way for sure.
