Richard's advised us as we've done some tough negotiations with our retail landlord, and in hiring a busines broker. His feedback has been timely, relevant, and pragmatic. He's advised us well on ways to work smart and avoid expensive and problematic interactions. With other attorney's, I've sometimes felt that I wasn't getting much value and often I had anticipated everything they brought up. Richard is a master at decyphering the real implications of seemingless innocent wording. He's notified us of many things that I didn't realize nor expect. At this point, I wouldn't even consider signing a contract without his advice.On top of all this, he doesn't send me a bill everytime we interact. Of course he bills for his time, but he groups it together into the meaniful and fair chunks. I really appreciate that. For us Richard's advice has been a fantastic return on the investment. I give Richard my highest endorsement.

Richard has created effective contract agreements for me during the past 18 years, and has litigated construction and property damage issues. His focus on facts and retention of detailed information is a tremendous asset. Richard has a knack for quick and thorough assessments of cases under review, and has excellent problem solving skills. I trust him to keep me out of court when other means are available, but enjoy watching him use his skills in court!

We had an unusual and testy property line dispute and with Richards guidance we came away very satisfied. He made us aware of all possible strategies and guided us to a reasonable conclusion based on his years of experience. He always presented his knowledge of the law in a precise, clear and gentlemanly manner.
You can trust Richard to stay focused and attentive for the concerns of your situation. We recommend Richard to anyone who needs an honest and skilled attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. With hundreds of published answers to consumer questions at Avvo.com from him, applause from his clients and endorsements from other attorneys too, it is clear to me that if you have a Business Law or Real Estate or litigation question, he is your answer. If his office is anywhere near you, I recommend him to you. He knows what he is doing and he does it very well.

I have worked with Richard since 1990 on a number of matters. His legal advice to our shared clients has always been sound and well-reasoned. As my area of practice is family law, there is frequently a need for legal counsel involving small family-owned businesses. I can honestly say that since finding Richard I have not gone elsewhere to obtain business law advice on my cases. I highly endorse his work and results.
