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 couldn't be happy with JR! As a former police officer and as a property manager and businessman, I have worked with dozens of attorneys on both criminal and civil cases. JR is truly top drawer- was obviously well-versed in his area of law, outlined our options and strategies, very personable and understandable, kept me informed, responded quickly and was very fair in billing. JR truly puts his client's interests before his own - as all attorneys are supposed to do, but few actually do. You can't go wrong with JR.

I had to go out of country before I could conclude a loan agreement (I'm the lender), so JR took over and began to gather documents he believes were necessary to evaluate the borrower and collaterals. He was knowledgeable and kept me informed with progresses by email.

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.
