Knowledgeable, Responsive, Effective
Richard Williamson has been my attorney for over 20 years and handled many cases for me and to my satisfaction. He is knowledgeable and quick to get to the salient points of an issue. I have always appreciated that he always responds quickly to my calls and keeps my informed throughout the process. Having been to court with Richard, I can say that he is persuasive and aggressive when necessary. During our 20 year relationship I have always felt comfortable that I am well protected.

Excellent Attorney!
Richard has worked on several matters for me. He regularly demonstrates a strong proficiency handling complex Real-Estate and Business matters. Each time he has worked for me, we have achieved a positive outcome. Recently Richard handled a highly complex re-finance of a large rental property. It involved multiple banks, lenders, attorneys and CPA’s. As a stakeholder in the matter, I felt comfortable and at ease knowing Richard would handle things with the highest level of expertise. I strongly recommend Richard to anyone needing legal representation.

Business Attorney | Apr 01
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Richard's knowledge in the areas of real estate law, partnership and shareholder law, and business and commercial law runs deep. I would refer matters to him without hesitation."

Real estate Attorney | Mar 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Richard Williamson is by far and away the best Businesss Litigation Attorney that I have worked and consulted with with over the past 34 years of practice. He is extremely pragamatic, direct, and highly skilled in all matters of varying complexity including disputes over contracts, fraud, real estate. Moreover, Richard is highly concerned about the client's best results and is very astute in performing a Cost/Benefit Analysis up front and throughout the representation, so each client is fully aware of the risks and costs of a particular course of action. I most admire Richard to look a business client as a human being, or group of people, and the impact of a legal dispute on that personal life, time, and money of each client in a very candid fashion. He astutely recognizes that one remedy does not fit all clients and that litigation is not the only alternative for every dispute. I would never hesitate highly recommending Richard to all of my business clients as a first choice."
Real estate Attorney | Dec 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Richard is a brilliant attorney, the kind you want on your side in a legal battle. His attention to detail is impeccable and knowledge of business and real estate unparalleled. He is also quick to return calls and emails. I strongly endorse this lawyer."
Real estate Attorney | Nov 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"In my 20 years of estate planning practice, I've interviewed many real estate attorneys to help me on various matters. The one attorney that stands out is Richard. I had a client facing 16 incorrect property tax bills that had significant penalties (over $10,000) attached to them. Although my client had done nothing wrong, the assessor was clear that they wanted money. I reached out to Richard, and within about 2 weeks the matter was resolved to my client's satisfaction. To say amazing would be an understatement. Richard has represented several other clients and has done very well. I would personally say that Richard is charming and a bulldog. I strongly endorse Richard."
Real estate Attorney | Nov 15
Relationship: Co-worker
"I endorse Rich Williamson. Rich has over 30 years of experience as a trial attorney representing businesses, business owners and property owners in real estate, partnership and shareholder disputes. Rich is one of the hardest working attorneys I’ve known and worked with in my almost 40 years of practice. He is meticulous, thoughtful, creative and always prepared. Rich is an attorney who, because of his thorough preparation, can change the outcome of a case."
