"I worked with Richard in putting together a new operating agreement and promissory notes for my organization. He was fantastic to work with. Even when the process got delayed (because of us, not him), he stayed patient and worked with us. I would recommend working with him."

"Richard was helpful, knowledgeable, and promptly provided the legal work requested. However, and perhaps this is an office organization issue, we received invoices about 6 months too late - hence the ding on response times. But for the actual legal work, Richard was very response... just needs to work on clarity on pricing + prompt invoicing."
