About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    I have tried many personal injury cases to juries, judges, and arbitrators. My trial experience and reputation help me to achieve fair settlements in most cases.

  2. Car accident
    Many of our clients seek us out for counsel regarding car crash and motor vehicle collision matters. We have extensive experience in this area of law.

  3. Animal and dog bites
    Many of our animal injury cases have been dog bites, but there are many ways of being hurt by an animal that can lead to a financial recovery. We've handled cases where a dog jumped up and knocked a person down, for example.

  4. Medical malpractice
    We have handled medical malpractice cases in San Francisco and just about all the Bay Area counties over the years. Many of these cases have involved Kasier Permanente and other local facilities.

  5. Motorcycle accident
    Our attorneys won $900,000 for a cyclist injured when a driver made a left without seeing him. The at-fault driver had only $100,000 in insurance, and the client had $150,000 more in his own “under-insured motorist” coverage.

  6. Slip and fall accident
    Slip & Fall Cases We’ve Won: $290,000 for a badly broken ankle when a woman slipped on a Nob Hill sidewalk, $175,000 for a broken leg when a woman tripped on an uneven sidewalk in Sausalito, $163,000 torn hamstring, $170,000 Powell BART fall...

My professional relationships with my clients are hands-on, friendly, and personal. I pride myself on being someone clients can relate to and trust. I encourage clients to call whenever they have questions. I think every client should choose an attorney with whom they feel comfortable, and who gives clear, intelligent answers to their questions.  I have tried many cases to juries in numerous Bay Area counties, as well as to judges and arbitrators.  I achieve good settlements in most cases, but do not hesitate to go to court when necessary to get what's fair for my client.

Excellent representation and compassion
Boone was great. He kept me informed during the entire proceedings of my case. When I had to go to a medical evaluation, he knew the doctor's reputation and had a court reporter present to ensure everything was documented properly. He prepared me for the mediation that was required for my case. At the mediation he was professional and represented all of my interests. He was able to secure an award that was full policy limits.
