"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."
"Amazing Gave him last min work at 6pm on a friday night and got done in 3 hours !!"
"Expert in employment and intellectual property law, would highly recommend"
"Honestly the best decision I have made for my business. Rich is beyond proactive, informative and helpful. Eternally grateful for his services and will not hesitate to work with him should I need any further legal services."
"Always the best!!!"
