I have to say, Mr. Postma's reviews are true.
I fired my former attorney and had to find a new one. No one would take my case. Then Mr. Postma gave me a 30 minute consultation. He was suspicious of my reasons for firing my last lawyer but asked me to bring him some documents to verify what I was saying. He then took my case 2 weeks before trial. His cross examination of my wife was fabulous. He found some information on her that even I was not aware of. The judge granted me 50/50 shared parenting time and parental responsibilities, which my former attorney in Greenwood Village said was not likely.
My former attorney made everything so complicated, but Mr. Postma simplified everything for the judge. I now realize I was sputtering whenever I talked about my wife's accusation, and Mr. Postma helped me realize this and helped my simplify was I was really upset about, which turned out to me something that surprised even me. He helped me calm down, helped me realize what was actually important at trial and what was not, and helped me simplify my own testimony at trial and during cross examination.
Mr. Postma is personable and seems to have an actual real life example from his long experience as an attorney for what I was facing, how the judge would process the information, what my ex-wife's motivations were and how she would react at trial, and what the judge's likely decision would be. He is like a chess player who has thought out every possible move a dozen moves in advance. I can't say enough about this attorney.

Mr. Postma was very helpful. After days of calling many attorneys, courts, and police in different states with each of them giving us the run around with what we should do. He was able to give us the answers that we needed. Beyond helpful with all the information and advice he was able to give us over the phone.

I contacted Richard Postma Jr. after reading his reviews first. Everything that I read has been true.
He is great to work with, listening to your needs and then responding quickly and efficiently. I have found his rates more than fair and his work is thorough. He is knowledgeable and hard working, making you feel as if your case is as important to him as it is to you.
I highly recommend this attorney.

Best attorney a person could ever want. Excellent in court, very knowledgable in all aspects of court and the laws. I can say if you got bigger problems he is the man. Saved me from my exwife thats a fact.

Richard is hands down an amazing lawyer. He made a very stressful process very easy. Explained every step. His rate is very reasonable specially considering the level of service you get. I never had a question that wasn't answered. I never had any difficulty reaching him (I hear from a lot of reviews of other lawyers that this is a big problem). Hands down the best lawyer money can buy. I can't recommend him enough.

I hired Richard Postma for a custody case. Another attorney who turned down my case recommended him. Mr. Postma gave me an initial consult unlike any of the other attorneys I spoke with. He took me from where I was at (Point A), where I wanted to go (Point B) and then explained the obstacles in my way and how could get around them if I accepted his advice. It was frustrating, and it took more than a year, but now I have shared custody of my daughter. Looking back, I appreciate the advice Mr. Postma gave me because by telling me to treat the custody case like a marathon and not a sprint and to be patient and take it one step at a time, he got me where I wanted to go. His bill was high, but when my ex-wife asked the court for her attorney fees I realized she had spent almost twice on her attorney that I spent on Mr. Postma, and Mr. Postma found a way to convince the court to not make me pay for her attorney. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Richard is not only a fantastic lawyer but a great person. He is articulate and extremely knowledgeable of the law. He is attentive and responds with not just the legal, but the human character. He helped me when I was down and in a dark place with no light at the end of my case. Divorce is never a happy place, but he inspired me and helped me fight for what I needed. He is honest, fair, and just. Sometimes we do not like the answers we get; Richard will tell you what you need to know good or bad. Without his help it would have been impossible to accomplish what I needed and where I am today.

My auto insurance declined coverage after I was in an accident. Said the car I was in was not insured under my policy. Get sued by the other drivers insurance company. I hired Postma, and within a few weeks after Postma sent my insurance company a scathing letter, my insurance company reversed its coverage decision and is defending me in the lawsuit. Postma get results, and saved me a ton of money. Great lawyer, best I've ever hired.

Richard first stepped into me and my kids lives in August of 2012, at the beginning stages of a horrible child custody case that would make most attorneys run for the hills. My ex wife had made false reports that made me out to be the equivalent of a modern day Charles Manson, minus the crazy beard. I was accused of sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence and every sort of crazy thing she could think of to smear my name and ruin my military career in her bid to keep the kids prior to my leaving the state for another military station. My ex also enjoyed a pro bono lawyer awarded to her for making false claims of domestic violence via a charitable agency in the state, almost assuring a legal victory despite her obvious fabrications. She did succeed in stopping my move, but this lead to two things; an investigation that cleared my name in full, and allowing Richard time to work his magic within the civil legal system. Things Richard did:
- Took a mountain of evidence and sorted out the fact from the fluff, knowing exactly what to present to the judge to the best effect. He completely cleared my name on a civil level based on our evidence, to the point that the Judge did indeed include in his order that my ex had no credibility on any of her claims. He didn't overwhelm the Judge with information, he directly targeted our exhibits to make the best impression against whatever narrative the other side was trying to build. In the end, Richards judgement was spot on, as the Judge was not able to note one instance where my ex's claims were crdible in any way.
- Took an aggressive stance to get the truth out on my behalf. Where many lawyers would just wait till hearing day to get the story told, Richard released key pieces of info out at key points in order to make it clear that my ex was lying. Richard crafted each and every motion, and his attention to detail and masterful writing made a big difference in making good material into great material. All the way up to our hearing date, Richard laid the groundwork for putting the opposition's credibility in the dirt. More importantly, he took our testimony and kept it clear and concise for the Judge., key to keeping our momentum moving forward. If your evidence is the Orchestra, you want this man as Conductor.
- King of cross examination. Richard argued our case like a force of nature, making them fight for every inch, all while leading them to a place they never intended to go. Example: a so called expert witness was so wrapped up into trying to have her non- expert opinion included into the courts dialouge that she ended up being considered a non-expert in her own profession, which ended up being revealed as something they weren't even qualified to testify about! In the end, this witness admitted that they didn't care about the truth involved...they considered the truth irrelevant, and said so while on the stand. All because of Richards masterful handling of this witness. The opposition had a massive pile of people they kept throwing on the stand, all of which Richard turned on the opposing sides case in short order. Richard knows how to interview and cross examine witnesses, and this was a key factor in getting us a fovorable outcome.
- Richard kept my bills low, and got me a great result. I'm a single dad, and from what I'm told, its almost impossible for a dad to get custody, but here I am, taking care of my little people and seeing them succeed in life. All of this was because Richard did such a great job. There are not enough superlatives to describe his accumen and work ethic, but then, I knew from the first day he came out to represent my case that he was the right man for the job. During the case, Richard did what he had to do, when he had to do it to save you money.
At the end of the day, having Richard as my rep made the difference. Without him, things would have gone very differently. Be truthful with him, put the case in his hands and you can't go wrong.

I hired this attorney because a JAG at Fort Bragg recommended him. He really came threw for me after my wife kidnapped the kids, ran to Alaska, and filed for divorce. Met him for the first time when i came to alaska for trial. Totally prepared for the expert retirement evaluator and my wife's lies. Someone says he was not afraid of judges, and boy is that the truth. He would whisper to me what he was about to do and how the judge would react or rule, and he was right every time. One time postma told me he wanted the judge to rule one way but that the judge would never rule in his favor, so he asked the judge to rule the completely opposite way, knowing that when the judge denied his objection Postma would actually got the decision that he wanted in the first place. The other attorney actually asked the judge to admit document into the evidence, and then an hour later realized his mistake when Postma used the very same document against my ex wife's expert witness. it was unreal.
