JR Richards took on my rental real estate case dealing with a non-paying tenant .. tenant was illusive when it came to rent payments .. tenant began to assume that since his long term vision (and he had no cash) was to purchase the property that he can ignore paying rent .. JR navigated the case beautifully with full knowledge of the process, JR was compassionate yet realistic and guided me and set expectations of what to expect and JR delivered .. JR filed the case and we won, tenant got evicted even though he tried to pull all stops, JR always seem to know what might happen and stayed a step ahead .. my full recommendation for JR to lead any of your real estate related cases! Very knowledgeable, strategic and anticipates with deep insights!

JR helped me resolve a frivolous lawsuit by a person who had no representative. Being from the east coast, I had no knowledge of the laws around a demur. With his expert knowledge and background in financial affairs and real estate, he managed to get us a settlement vs. an expensive demur and possible court appearance.
What a weight off my mind! JR is committed, knowledgeable, and looks out for your best interest and not his pockets.
How do you spell relief? JR
I would recommend him every time for your real estate or funding real estate legal needs.

I have had JR with Richards Law help my small business for the past two years with several unfortunate lawsuits. I have been pleased with the communication and response time I have been given. There is no price that can be given for the peace of mind and the reduced stress in my life because of my association with Richards Law. I recommend JR to everyone I come in contact with. I know he can help you as well.
