  • Giacomo Jacques Behar

    I endorse this lawyer. One of the smartest, most creative Criminal Defense lawyers I've ever worked with. Since 1993 had the opportunity to work with Rich on many hard to resolve, almost impossible to win criminal cases. He came true for our immigration clients time after time! Rich also tirelessly served as my mentor in far too many asset forfaiture cases in my early years. He was always there for me & patiently devised a solution to my clients' problems. I never forget it!
