This man was very difficult to work with in trying to resolve our legal problems. During our visits with him, he became quite hateful and condescending while showing no empathy for our situation. In the courtroom our case was presented hastily and ineffectively by Mr. Richardson. He actually told us he had to hurry because he was needed immediately for another court hearing. When I asked him why he did not question witnesses and ignored obvious perjury by letting it go unchallenged, he told us his method of practicing law was a "soft approach". What does that mean? To us it meant he could not bother to do the job he was paid extremely well for. Disturbed about happenings that caused the hiring of legal services in the first place, we were now sad and stunned by this man's attitude and poor performance in court. He did not serve us well legally and we rue the fact that we did not terminate his services soon after hiring him. Unfortunately, the unprofessional manner and poor treatment shown to us by Mr. Richardson renders us unable to recommend his services to others.

Best Lawyer Ever! Hands down the most trustworthy, knowledgable, kind, understanding, and cool lawyer there is.
I would have a beer with Mr. Richardson. I consider him a friend as well as an advocate.
Thank you sir!

I retained Mr. Richardson one year ago to represent me in a domestic relations/custody/parenting time case and I had worked with two lawyers prior to this. Mr. Richardson excels in negotiating fair resolutions and solving critical problems. He demonstrates high standards of professional ethics and expertise. I highly recommend James Richardson for counsel.
