Richard did a fantastic job navigating me through the complicated process known as a divorce. I went through a very ugly divorce that threaten my relationship with my children. He kept me calm throughout process and he worked hard on my behalf to bring a solution that was better then I could have expected. I have Richard to thank for staying the course with me and helping save a father's relationship with his children. I would recommend him in a heart beat and I have already done so. Thank you Richard!

I found Richard Golden to be a fantastic resource when I was facing divorce in a 21 year marriage. His knowledge and many years of experience helped me to negotiate an extremely fair settlement without having to pay support. Richard was also very adept at managing the divorce process through our court system not only in the technical aspects of filing etc., but also having had the experience of previously working with the judge assigned to my case. His ability to communicate with opposing council was excellent and fostered a very “workable” relationship. Most attorneys don’t often receive credit for being good listeners, but in Richard’s case he was excellent and willingly listened to my needs and frequent venting! I would hire him again in a minute!

Mr. Golden confidently assisted me through the mine-field of the divorce proceedings. He was a steady and knowledgeable advocate, keeping me in the loop at every turn. He was supportive and calm throughout the entire process, and provided excellent resources and recommendations for auxiliary team members, i.e. forensic accountants, etc., in order to further vet optimum scenarios. I felt he worked hard on my behalf to create solutions and a fair settlement.

I endorse Richard Golden for his exemplary work representing clients in Family Law matters in San Mateo and Santa Clara County. I have known Richard for almost ten years and was his opponent in a very difficult dissolution case in Redwood City. He is a seasoned professional whose legal judgment and poise in the courtroom have won the respect of both the judges he appears before and the attorneys who are his adversaries. Richard's ethical standards are at the highest level and it is obvious that his foremost concern is the promotion and protection of his client's interests. I would recommend him for anyone needing representation in a Family Law case, no matter how difficult or contentious.
