Client & Testimonial

We are a premier law firm dedicated to serving our clients. We get results. But don’t just take our word for it.
  • I own a business for over 27 years now and I have used numerous law firms. This law firm is top notch! Their fees are reasonable and they will not nickel and dime you excessively for every email, phone call or other trifle matters.

    The most valued aspect of using this law firm is that you are under the best guidance for your own benefits. They care about your emotional capital as much as protecting your hard assets. They will not drag your case or cause prolonged litigations just to keep billing their clients. They are busy enough.

  • One of my clients faced a difficult situation and needed legal counsel, I recommended DRE (Darren M. Richie, Esq.) and my clients couldn’t stop complimenting how well Darren handled their case. They are sticklers for details, and follow through on their promise.
