“I met Richard in the context of whistleblowing regarding ongoing fraud by people who were as tenacious (with a virtually unlimited defense budget) as they were dishonest.  Richard quickly became more than my learned, experienced and wise attorney, he became my friend.  Though Richard was as concerned as I was with exposing and stopping the underlying wrongs (including fraud to third parties), he was at least as concerned for me as his client, foreseeing and advising me through the personal tolls that whistleblowing seems so often to entail.  He never pushed me to take the early and easy settlements we were offered along with strings that I remain silent forever about the fraud.  Instead, he patiently guided us to a settlement that was strong on all fronts and did not require a trial (full resolution came within a year of my meeting Richard).  I highly recommend him.” — Former Chief Operating Officer of a large organization.

 “Richard’s expertise and concern for me and my family resulted in a tailored plan that permitted me to safely share my information with regulators and law enforcement.  His steadfast support enabled me to continue my quest for accountability, and I am very grateful for his guidance through a difficult period.” – Former Banking Executive

“Richard is extremely knowledgeable, caring, sensitive, hardworking and smart.  I have never seen anyone that cares as much about a client and his/her family. All of Richard’s predictions about the reactions of government agencies, my employer’s strategies, my former co-workers, technical experts, the local politicians and government officials, and the media to my whistleblowing and the issues I raised came true one after another one. Richard increased my odds of winning my whistleblower case from 1% to over 70%, before the case was resolved.  He aggressively fought for me and my family to the last minute.” — Professional Civil/Structural Engineer
