Federal Prosecutor

"I rank him among the top 5 lawyers against whom I have worked.  He is a supurb writer, an impassioned advocate, and a great trial lawyer who has worked his whole career almost exclusively in federal court."

Federal Defense Lawyer

"Each time Robert tried a case, the first call I got was from the presiding Judge, complementing, and sometimes even raving about his performance.  That was followed by the jury's verdict, often in Robert's favor."  

Federal Judge

 "You are an ace in the deck."

Client

"At the end, when the verdict came in for full acquittal of all charges, Robert was as emotionally drained as I was.  I truly believe, that if not for his unshakeable belief in my innocence, his dedication and determination to represent me to the absolute best of his abilities, I would never have walked out of that courtroom a free man."

Federal Prosecutor

"Mr. Richman is clearly one of the best defense attorneys against whom I have litigated.  He is a tremendous advocate on behalf of his clients, both in the courtroom, and in his written work.  In the courtroom, he combines passion and zeal with an incredible attention to detail.  Whether in arguments to the court or jury, or in questioning witnesses, he invariably identifies and exploits every possible weakness in the opposing case."

Federal Defense Lawyer

"I can recall at least two specific instances when Robert's intellect and creativity led to solutions that no other member of the legal team envisioned.  On these occasions, his calm influence brought others to see the wisdom of his approach and he correctly persuaded members of the legal team to adopt what turned out to be the correct path."
