What Our Clients Say:
I’m writing this review to highly recommend Richard Fahey. Richard helped us tremendously when we were in a very difficult situation. Without going into a great amount of detail about our case, we were wrongly accused of something awful. Our only option was to defend ourselves or settle the issue. Richard and his team explained every step of the litigation process to us and fought hard to not only get insurance coverage but also to settle our case. Navigating through the insurance process was confusing (we were denied a couple of times). Thanks to Richard’s persistence and expertise in this area our insurance company acquiesced and covered the costs and settlement. Without this coverage we would not have been able to get this nightmare resolved and out of our lives.
