Over the years I've consulted with Rich on weighty matters, some legal, some not. Over and over, in return I've been given what often seems providential words for things I had let go as unconsidered. His mind is keen and ambitious. As a lawyer, Rich has shown hawk-eyed benevolence in regarding contract work and other legal matters I've presented to him. I've come to see that he places justice, fairness and warmth above billing and a mile-long client list. His counsel for me seems like him lending a hand, and for that he is an uncommon and excellent lawyer and has earned my highest recommendation.
