Real Estate advice session
I initially missed the attorney, Richard Hall's call. But he left me a message and also called me back the next morning. I cant say enough about how invaluable this phone call was regarding my situation with a second mortgage problem i am having. Richard Hall was extremely knowledgeable and gave me multiple options and a game plan to follow. I found this service from googling my problem and this turned out to be a great find. The attorney seemed care about my situation too. I was on the fence on what action i should take with a creditor regarding my second mortgage and now I feel confident in what I need to do. I would recommend this service and i will use it again if i need it.

He was very attentive to my legal situation and followed through to a very satisfactory legal solution. I would recommend him to friends needing his expertise.

Very easy to work with
Writing ones final will and trust can be very stressful. Working with Richard in his very comfortable, homey office really put us at ease. We did not feel pressured to make certain "final decisions". He gave us time to think and explained the pros and cons of certain issues in a way that we could understand.. What ever the future holds, we know he will be there for us. We highly recommend him

Rank case
I was sued as a defendant for fraud, misrepresentation, and conspiracy. After 5 years of delay the case came to trial before a jury in Placer County Superior Court. After 3 days of trial the jury returned a not guilty plea for all defendants. I t was Richards knowledge of real estate law and well documented exhibits for the defense that caused the jury to return their verdict. While it is still possible for people only remotely involved to be sued in what intended to be a shake down for money. It is good to know that being well represented will allow the truth to to be told.

Richard A. Hall Review
Mr. Hall defended me in a difficult lawsuit involving a house foreclosure. The case went on for over a year and we eventually prevailed. The fee was quite reasonable considering the amount of time spent on the case and the exposure to damages. We paid the other party nothing nor did we go to court.
