I have been working with the Gaines law firm on a complex business contract dispute case. I appreciated the efficiency, communications and professionalism. We won an enforcement of money judgment, resulting in a successful foreclosure. A great result in a very complex set of circumstances. All the best !

Working with Richard was an absolute pleasure. He helped me resolve a case that I was beginning to lose hope for. He was quick to respond and draft the necessary documents in a short period of time. Highly recommend!
