In dealing with the loss of a loved one and disputes related to their estate, emotions and tempers can fly high. Having a wise, even-keeled and kind expert in your corner is paramount. Richard Conn is this expert.
I consulted with several probate litigators before hiring Richard. What I found very appealing about Richard's approach was his personable, mild demeanor and fair assessment of the situation posed. He presented to our initial consultation with preparadness and attentiveness. He did not paint a rosy picture like the prior lawyers I consulted with. He did not over-promise results. Yet his mastery of the field, his forthrightness in disclosing his limitations in a particular area, and his realistic illustration of my case prevailed over any hesitations I had about initiating the (litigation) process.
The process at times was frustrating and unnerving. I experienced emotional setbacks. I lost hope. Richard remained centered and calm and steered me back. When I was flustered with minutia, he remained unruffled and focused on the big picture. He was extremely responsive and informative. While he didn't convince me to stay the course, he did breath a sense of confidence back into me. I stayed the course.
In the end, Richard under-promised and over-delivered. His temperament was so aligned with what my spirit needed and with what the situation demanded that I had no qualms about confronting my adversarial and contentious opposing party with confidence. With his extreme preparedness and unquestionable expertise, he was the best advocate I could have asked for and my matter resolved more favorably than I hoped.
