Two years ago my wife and I selected Richard on the strength of friends' recommendations. We very quickly realized we had chosen wisely. He prepared a complete estate planning package for us - trust, wills, durable powers of attorney for asset management and health care, and advance health directives. At first meeting he projected a quiet confidence that immediately set us at ease. From initial conference through document filing Richard was the consummate professional, knowledgeable, approachable, thoughtful, responsive, patient, and caring. His staff also exhibited those same fine attributes throughout. Together Richard and staff made our estate planning a most pleasant and productive experience.
Richard brings to his practice many strengths. The ones we most appreciated were his willingness to listen carefully to what we thought were our needs, his ability to clarify a complex subject and thereby help us better understand and refine our needs, and his calm, reassuring manner of gently guiding - never pushing - us toward the products most appropriate to meet those needs.
Three months ago we again had need of Richard's services. We received a panicked call from the escrow company handling the refinance of our home advising we needed to remove it from our trust 'right then' in order for the refinance to move forward to closing a few days away. I phoned Richard at 5:00 pm that day and the next morning at 10:00 am we were in his office signing the necessary documents. No muss, no fuss, just a great example of the exemplary service Richard and staff routinely provide.
Richard was an absolute delight to work with throughout the entire estate planning process and again during our recent need for his expertise and services. We've already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. I don't suppose anyone looks forward to requiring legal services, but it's comforting to know that when that time inevitably comes again we'll be able to turn to Richard for support.

Mr. Tizzano helped us with my mother's estate and care planning before she began her journey into Alzheimer's. He helped us with everything we needed: wills, living wills, power of attorneys, etc. He even recommended good care facilities and answered the many questions we had. He is very informed, professional, and well-connected. We highly recommend him and will use him in the future.

I have connections with Richard through a number of avenues, both personal and professional. I have always found him to be a wonderful, upstanding individual. He is contrary to many common beliefs about attorneys. He is kind and compassionate and is highly approachable. Richard is knowledgeable, or willing to seek out an answer or solution, if needed.
Richard has assisted me personally in the areas of elder law (working with the nursing home in getting better care for my grandmother), estate planning, and a potential adoption situation. I have very much appreciated his thoughtful assistance and don't hesitate to refer my family and friends.
