Rich was very personable and understanding to our plight. We live in Kansas and had to deal with him over the phone and through email and he always made sure that he got back with us right away. He explained things to us if we didn't understand what was going on. He did what we wanted as the clients and took into consideration what was going on in our lives. I would highly recommend and use Rich again and if you are dealing in a case where false allegations are being made against you he is worth every penny you pay to retain him.

Rich was not only my attorney but he treated me like a person a friend. and trust me i hadn't had anyone treat me like that for a min because of my past and what i was doing and my children had to stay in state custody because of it. and yes i did turn my life around but still had legal problems that without Richard's help i would of lost my parental rights for good and my son would of been adopted out. And Rich pulled out things that i do not think any other attorney could of or would of done. what that man did for me was more then getting my parental rights back he went above and beyond and got my parental rights back and my son back! ya and if u can imagine what it would be like to be facing what i was and to have not only a attorney but a friend some who didn't judge and really fought for me man it's like the storm was over and the sky was clear again and no more hurt and pain of that emptiness of not having my son that was the most awesome day thank u is not enough to say to Rich he is heaven sent beyond words can say! so yea if u need the very best and you have Rich then u got more then the best! Rich is a real person . He has more heart then 50 attorneys trust me i dealt with so many in my time the years i was messing up so i know

Rich is the best attorney; trustworthy, honest and ethical. Rich was the one attorney I could turn to and know that he was invested in my case and my family. Rich was consistently responsive, always returned calls and emails in a timely fashion. Rich goes above and beyond in his work to even comfort his clients in their utter devastation. I found not just an attorney but an ally. I would pay my last cent to have him as my attorney.
