“We met with several entertainment attorneys, and upon meeting Richard, we knew he was the one to represent our daughter with a potentially touchy legal procedure. We liked Richard's approach; his understanding of our situation; his strategy and reasoning; and most certainly his promptness and follow through which is critical. The entertainment industry is a difficult one to navigate, and Richard's candor with us is greatly appreciated. He helped us through our situation to reach his targeted outcome, and will continue to represent our daughter in the future as well. Richard was much more than fair with us, as this process required several revisions along the way. We regard Richard as an industry expert and trusted counsel, and also as a true friend. He is one of the few in our circle that we can count on in the (not so trusting entertainment industry). Anyone would be fortunate to have him as any of the above.”
