Very pleased.
Richard and his team (Rakia Wade) were on top of everything. Anytime I called they always got back to me in a prompt manner with answers or information.

Richard Tanasi Law really helped me
My car was hit by a food-service truck. Working with the Tanasi firm was really easy. My back was injured, and I was not driving for a while. The Tanasi firm completed everything by phone and email. All my questions and concerns were answered quickly and thoughtfully. I recovered within a few months, and I feel the settlement I received was considerably more than if I had just filed an insurance claim.

Accidents are life changing. You need a good lawyer.
Richard was able to get the max from the insured motorist that struck me in a crosswalk, and half the max from my insurance. It is never enough, but without the Tanasi law group I would have been in deep debt for medical costs in addition to what appears to be life long damage in my knees, leg and back. Linda is the most patient and compassionate person. I was pretty low with my injuries and depression and got extremely frustrated and unable to execute the simplest request at times. They stood by me. Thry guided me through the process. They were professional but also understanding. I highly recommend this law group.

High end Federal Trial
I was accused of 14 heinous crimes by the Federal Government in a case called United States V. Bundy. I had no money and was appointed a lawyer. Scared, I was, really scared, because I was innocent and facing 82 mandatory minimum years. Richard Tanasi and his staff were more than knowledgeable, and ready to tackle the challenging 6 months worth of 2 trials, and numerous hearings. (Yeah, that was longer than O.J.!!) But they were patient, caring, and always answered my phone calls. I was not being an easy person to deal with, and their bedside manner was off the charts. I don't think I was ever aggressive towards Rich, (cause he's no pushover, obviously) but I was very demanding. In trial, anything I asked happened. Even if Rich advised against it, he would still ask the court any questions I had, and make any statements I needed expressed. He spent a lot of time visiting me in Prison for a Year, because he cares. I trust Rich. He'd be worth every penny I could ever pay him

I have worked with Richard Tanasi for both a MVA and a traffic ticket. Both instances he was great at fully communicating the process and results as well as, answering all questions with patience. He worked hard throughout the process to make sure I had the best outcome possible. His office staff respond quickly and are very thorough and reliable. Very happy with their services!

Reliable Rich will work hard for you
I have met Rich through a business network group. There were two situations where we needed Rich's help. He is patient, calm, detail oriented, focused while representing the client. I trust Rich because he is a good human being. I felt reassured having Rich on my side. My worries and stress were greatly reduced as well. Hiring Rich gave me peace during challenging times. Thank you very much!

Excellent Results
I hired Rich Tanasi for a traffic violation. Paid the legal fee over the phone with Marijo. She set up a phone conference for Rich and I to speak and I emailed a picture of the citation to their office. Rich had my ticket reduced and resolved within a couple of weeks. They emailed me the results. Excellent communication and results. Would definitely hire him again and will recommend him to others.
