To whom it may concern,
I am STILL a CDL licensed driver thanks in large part to attorney Roberts. I was involved in a DUI related matter where I would have lost my career and lively hood. However, I reached out to the McShane firm and chose atty. Roberts to represent my case which he fought long and hard for. He listened to me about my personal life and how this could affect my children as well as an extensive unfavorable criminal past. Although he made no promises as to the eventual outcome he promised to fight hard and allowed me to weigh in on my options. I walked out that courtroom with results better than we both expected lol. Also, I'd like to thank Jen his paralegal for being such a professional throughout this ordeal and promptly getting back to me whenever I had questions. I am forever greatfull for your sincerity, professionalism and sense of humor during a stressful time in my life.

Richard Roberts and his paralegal Jenn helped me get my life back. I was facing a very serious Felony charge. It was a terrible mistake and really just an unfortunate incident. Richard Roberts worked very hard so that I would ultimately have no permanent criminal record. I was in jeopardy of losing my career, my home, everything I had worked a lifetime to achieve. I will never be able to thank Attorney Roberts and his paralegal Jenn enough for helping through the most difficult time of my life. If you are in need of a hard working criminal defense attorney I would highly recommend Richard Roberts.

I hired Richard almost two years ago when I was charged with 7 serious felony charges. From day one he worked and worked. He worked harder than any other lawyer I've seen. He fought everything and everyone, judges, DAs, everyone.

I was always taught the measure of a man isn't whether or not he gets knocked down but what does he do when he gets back up. Richard and I got knocked down in this case. There were set backs and losses. Everytime, however, richard got back up and kept fighting. It seemed as if everyone was telling him to just stay down, there was nothing more he could do, and it was over. Despite this he never ever stopped fighting.

In the end the DA finally realized they couldn't win and richard wouldn't stop. They dropped the case. They dropped every single felony. It was one of the happiest days of my life, and I will be forever grateful and thankful to Richard and everything he did for me.

Richard was an amazing lawyer. He kept me informed what was going on and talked to me about the law. I wouldn't be home with my family today without his efforts.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention his paralegal Jen as well. She like Richard was amazing. She talked to me and kept me informed. She was there for me when I just needed someone to talk to and I thank her for that.

If you need a lawyer whether your case is serious or simple hire Richard, he will not let you down.
