“I thought my life as a free man was coming to an end! I was indicted by the Feds as an Armed Career Criminal, which if  I lost I was looking at a Federal Life Sentence. I was innocent and I had to go to trial! Mr Richards fought the Feds from day one up to and through the NOT GUILTY VERDICT by the jury! That man knows how to work a courtroom! He was passionate about my case, and compassionate when things got tough and I wanted to give up! Good man! Great Lawyer!” Q. White

Dear Ray,

I have known I would eventually write this letter since the day of K#$%’s trial. When [email protected]#$% was initially charged and arraigned, her case looked dismal, regardless how fatuitous the charges. When she informed the court she would be getting her own attorney, either the judge or the prosecuting attorney quipped, “You better get a good one!” The meaning is obvious; they were going to convict her and sentence her to some maximum penalty. Well, we took their advice to heart, and employed a ‘good one;’ YOU.

Your ability to offer the court alternatives to jail is the sign of an experienced and prepared lawyer. Your successful persuasiveness is clear evidence of a lawyer who knows how to argue without appearing to be arguing or offending. Your success in [email protected]#$’s defense was no less than absolutely brilliant.

K*&*^ has been successful in separating herself from bad friends and bad habits. It has been and is at times still painful for her, but necessary. Giving her this opportunity to meet these challenges outside of a cage was the best of all available options. Not because she is my daughter, but because I believe jail is the worst possible alternative for non-violent cases such as [email protected]#$%’s.

You have become part of the fabric of the H#$%^&* Family history. We will never forget, ever, how you rescued our daughter from an extremely negative outcome the court seemed a little too willing to impose. I cannot thank you enough. You are best money I have ever invested. You bring to the table what many refer to as Value Added services. If there is ever a time I might be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call.

Thank you again. I hope the future treats you well.

The [email protected]#L%& Family

A True Champion for Justice

I contacted Ray E. Richards in regards to general legal issue that ultimately led to the consultation regarding a will. Attorney Ray Richards conducted a thorough, objective assessment, free of charge which led to the creation of a will from an elderly family member that “simply didn’t see the value of a will”. In the past Attorney Ray Richards has always worked within the community to provide legal advice to many individuals that normally do not have the financial means to seek legal assistance. One of the admirable traits for Attorney Ray Richard is that many people value and respect his efforts to assist the “underdog”. The legal profession is a tough business with some of it members only take cases that have huge monetary value. Attorney Ray E. Richards is one of those attorneys that the legal profession can still believe and have complete trust in to ensure that justice is served for all citizens, not just those who has deep pockets. – Kendrick

Ray Richards is one of a select few attorneys that myself and our firm refer criminal cases to.

Ray Richards is one of a select few attorneys that myself and our firm refer criminal cases to. The 2 things that matter most to me/us: 1) Ray consistently gets excellent results for clients, and 2) his reputation in this business after 12+ years of practice is very good. Fellow attorneys respect him, and so do Judges. That speaks volumes. If you want to know what someone’s future results will look like, look at their track record. NBA GM’s and high ranking people from the sports world trust him to represent them, and I trust him with clients I’m unable to represent. I recommend Ray to anyone who wants an aggressive but reasonably-priced lawyer who knows the Courts, the Judges, and the CJ system. – James Acho, Employment / Labor Attorney in Livonia, MI
