Best decision I made
I contacted Richard when my former employer took a hard stance on an issue with my departure. They were seeking to make a big example out of me for any and all future employees. There initial tactic to frighten me worked and sent me seeking my own counsel. I was referred to Richard by several friends independently, and it was easily the best decision I made for my problem. From the moment I hired Richard to represent me, I felt much more in control of my situation and a lot less helpless. Within a few weeks of hiring him, cooler heads were beginning of prevail, and he was successful in helping back them off their initial position. Without Richard, I am certain that this would have ended up with a much different result. I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend Richard to anyone who is facing a facing either a potential or actual criminal problem. He knows his stuff and his ability to work his relationships and develop rapport with the other side will definitely fall in your favor.
Richard was ready to fight the matter all the way.
Richard Rice is one of the best criminal defense lawyers you can find in Georgia. Richard represented me during some of the most difficult years of my life when I faced federal felony charges. He was there for me every step of the way--from the arraignment, discussing our strategy, going over discovery and motions, and negotiating with the government. Most impressively, we were able to have the government initially withdraw their original indictment. Ultimately, although I decided not to go to trial, Richard was ready to fight the matter all the way. After much soul searching, I ended up pleading to a single misdemeanor count, resulting only in probation and a relatively low fine, with NO jail time. Richard discusses all your options intelligently, and he works diligently to meet all deadlines and provides transparency about the process, assessment of the risks and potential outcomes. Richard's past tenure as a former Assistant US Attorney was invaluable--the connections he has to speak with the government, the court, and the probation officers are critical to effective representation. But Richard isn't only just an excellent lawyer--he was compassionate and had great empathy, reaching out to comfort me during the agonizing decisions that had to be made. His services are worth EVERY penny, should you ever be so unlucky to undergo the terrible ordeal of criminal prosecution. He has my highest recommendation.
He fought for my rights like they were his own
Mr. Rice is an excellent attorney. Not only is he very knowledgeable but most importantly to me, He fought for my rights like they were his own. He kept me aware of the details in my case and never tired of explaining them to me. He was able to arrange an acceptable settlement but he was prepared to go to trial if necessary. He realized the emotional stress and the financial drain on me personally and worked with me to make sure that I made the best decisions for me. He was totally on my side. I recommend Mr. Rice without reservation.
He is the best of the best!
I was referred to Mr. Rice by the managing partner of one of the largest law firms in the United States. Mr. Rice not only quickly and easily extracted my family from a dire situation that could have become catastrophic, but he also assisted us in a variety of legal matters, both domestic and international. I can’t think of a more skillful attorney, and I, personally, do not engage in any legal matter prior to consulting him. He is the best of the best and will always find an answer to any legal situation confronting you. Simply put, he is the MacGyver of attorneys and I wholeheartedly recommend him.
He helped me regain my freedom
You know when God puts you in the right hands. My other lawyer had given up on me, and I felt helpless against an entire set of Federal lawyers. Richard took my case and gave me and my family hope again. In the end against overwhelming odds he helped me regain my freedom and life again. He showed me and my family care and compassion. Genuine concern for all of our lives knowing that if something happened to me my entire family would have been devastated. His legal abilities are only outweighed by the amazing amount of heart he shows to his clients. I say pray first and call Richard next.
