“Eric is an attorney with a rare combination: Eric consistently exhibits great skill and knowledge with a friendly, direct approach that is refreshing. He and his staff helped me through a difficult time during my separation and subsequent divorce. His staff at Eric Richardson Law are much the same, always personable and of high integrity. I strongly recommend him to others that may face this emotionally challenging situation. Eric and his staff were readily available and worked with great efficiency, I was more than happy with the final agreement. Eric came highly recommended to me and I was not disappointed.“
“Eric has been my attorney for over 5 years. He represented me better than I could ever imagine. He is a thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable attorney.
He was always prompt to get in touch with me and he always valued my opinions and reassured my doubts. He fought hard for me resulting in a great outcome.
I have recommended Eric to a number of people and all of them have been very satisfied with his representation. I will continue to recommend Eric because he is a great attorney.“
“I unfortunately had to seek the help of attorney Eric Richardson in 2001 due to an extremely difficult and personal situation (separation/divorce). During that time, Eric was not only professional and did an excellent job representing me, but he also was a very compassionate individual and ensured that I was taking care of myself. My experience didn’t feel like it was a business relationship. Eric Richardson was accessible and very flexible. He was understanding when uncontrollable situations occurred and made a devastating situation manageable.
I have since referred a family member and a close friend to Eric. They both retained him and had great experiences as well. Majority of the times when people seek legal counsel it’s not for a pleasant reason. Ensure you secure an attorney that has your best interest as priority. Stay blessed.”
