In a pinch, I needed general legal services within 24 hours. After a quick search, I found Scott and his firm and gave them a call. Scott answered the phone, took the time to walk me through what was happening and what I needed done, and then went out of his way to make sure it was taken care of that day. He even met me after business hours to ensure everything was taken care of, even printing out extra copies of everything to make sure I had one on file. I highly recommend Scott and his team for any of your legal needs - he is fantastic!

Scott Richman took a painful and unpleasant experience and helped me navigate it while always being available to answer any questions or address any concerns whether it was via email or phone. He always took the time to explain everything including any areas of confusion without making me feel stupid or small. He was always respectful, very knowledgeable, and worked so hard on my case. I cannot recommend him highly enough for any legal needs you may have.

Scott Richman handled my case with the utmost care, respect, and expediently. I had a civil matter that he resolved for me, and leaving this matter in his hands was the best thing I could have done. He communicates effectively and often, and ensures that as his client you are never in the dark. Very grateful for his services and give him my highest recommendation.

Mr. Richman is one of the most capable civil litigators I have met. He conducts his practice fairly and ethically at all times. He always approaches each case with several strategies, he has no problem standing up for his client’s interests, and he uses his talent for quick thinking to resolve issues for his clients very efficiently. I have referred several clients to his firm because I trust that he will do excellent work for anyone that retains his services. I endorse this lawyer.

Richman Law Firm PLLC is an amazing firm and worth working perusing is you need a lawyer. Scott Richman works hard and took care of everything quickly. He was easy to get a hold of, answering emails and phone calls immediately almost every time. He settled my case within a little over 8 weeks. He was in constant contact, keeping me up to date on the progress of my case. After settling my case, he reached out often to be sure I received my check and to confirm that all looked as promised per our contract. He answered every question, never making me feel stupid or small. He is a great guy to work with, very nice and very professional. Hire this firm, you won’t regret it.

I have worked on several matters with Scott, and I am very impressed with his excellent work ethic and strong attention to detail. Scott makes sure to focus on the right issues to get the best outcomes for his clients. I strongly recommend Scott for those in need of a strong, aggressive attorney in New York.
