I would recommend Richard Huttner! He is a down to earth lawyer, who knows the system and more importantly how it is interpreted in the different counties courts.
I was facing Child Abuse and Assault due to an overzealous detective who threw the book at me. Won't go into the details but young children will say a lot when questioned by the Police. The stigma of these charges were terrible. I was embarrassed and hurt by the untruths the kids said about me.
I then went into action mode finding a good lawyer to defend me. I was referred to a few VERY high priced lawyers and met and interviewed each one. They were very good at scaring the hell out of me. They had me convinced that I was going to need a hail marry to get out of the charges. Even though they were also quick to point out that I was charged because of the affluent county and the "Westboro Baptist Crazy" DA that reigns there. If it was a different county there would have been no charges.
The common thread between these fancy lawyers was "there is 0 chance that the case will be dismissed, you need to get ready for court!"
I was very dismayed at what I heard and the money that I was going to need to defend myself so before I signed up I decided to do a Google search and that is how I stumbled upon Richard. I read all the reviews and loved what I was reading!
I met with Richard and right away we clicked. Richard stated that I was way over-thinking this case. The charges were serious he said but quickly stated that I was innocent and should start acting that way ... "Hold your head high". I had begun to doubt that and it sure felt good to finally have some one basically drilling it into me.
He then stated that he was sure that the charges would be thrown out! Wow a 180' from what I had been told. It seemed too good to be true. I said the others all said the chances of that were 0%. That's when he went into it about how the other lawyers were great and very respectable as he knew them etc. BUT that they were overselling the story ... talking it up and getting me worked up. I read into that "They were scarring you so they could over prepare and run the tab hard".
To sum it up the charges were dropped and Richard was right! This guy is GREAT! He is by far the best lawyer I have had and I have had a few real losers!
I wouldn't hesitate to use Richard again.
Shop around with other lawyers, get a few opinions and THEN go see Richard. You will no doubt have a similar story as mine.
Richard has restored my faith in lawyers.
