  • Richard made an ideal lawyer for my situation, managing to avoid litigation in high court while brokering a very fair settlement in just over a year during the pandemic. He operated as an anchor around major acrimonious divorce turbulence, and was skilful at getting up to speed with complex finances quickly.
