  • You are frustrated and angry to find yourself needing to hire a lawyer
  • You are confused about your options and need more information on the law, best approaches and strategies
  • You are worried about how much it will cost you to resolve your legal matter
  • You are embarrassed to find yourself in a legal situation
  • You are saddened and fearful of what the future holds for you
  • You are hopeful that the matter can be resolved amicably and cost effectively
  • You are concerned about how you will maintain a workable and sustainable relationship with your partner, spouse and/or children in the future

Richard Burton, a lawyer with over 20 years of legal experience in Nevada County and graduate studies in humanistic psychology, is ready to compassionately listen to clients, capably guide them through their legal action, and is committed to providing legal services that are collaborative in nature.  Experience has shown that while aggressive representation is sometimes advisable and effective, it should be used with discretion, after at least considering a less contentious approach. 

Richard's intention is to involve all parties in resolving the legal matter as efficiently, effectively and amicably as possible by listening well, exploring available strategies and approaches, guiding his clients through the legal maze and providing good solid legal advice and counseling until the matter is resolved.
