Attorney F. Richard Hurley should be the first lawyer you call
I am writing to tell about my recent dealings with Attorney F. Richard Hurley. I called Mr. Hurley immediatedly upon getting legal papers. I was served with legal papers from my greedy landlord who sought to evict me using bogus legal papers. Mr. Hurley immediated returned my call and gave me a prompt appointment. In addressing my matter, Mr. Hurley combined his legal background as a tough prosecutor in the Queens County District Attorney's Office and a tenious civil legal affairs specialist in private practice for many years to slam away my landlord's efforts. Case closed. I would seek Hurley again in the future and do urge everyone to contact him if you have any type of legal problem. I have grateful for Mr. Hurley's work.
F. Richard Hurley is an excellent attorney who is, certainly, willing to go the extra mile for his client in order to represent them in the honorable fashion that is expected. He is passionate towards community issues that has affected local residents, as well as, corporate and development issues a like. What I appreciate the most is that he didn't charge me just to have a conversation, email, or fax a document, like most newer attorneys.
Very good and helpful. Would recommend Mr. Hurley to anybody!
High quality, professional competent and courteous
Richard Hurley is an experienced, competent and honest lawyer that will fight aggressively for his client. Being a client of Mr. Hurley was the best decision I've made in my life. First of all Mr. Hurley is available for his clients unlike any other lawyer I've experienced. Mr. Hurley always returned my phone calls within 24 hours. I appreciated this as a client. I've had attorneys represent me in family court, and a lawyer represent me in the criminal case that I left because I met Richard Hurley and he took over my case(for the best). No other lawyer I've experienced matches the timeliness of Mr. Hurley. My case was a very sensitive case. I hired Mr. Hurley as my defense attorney because I was not satisfied with my previous lawyers willingness to wait around and just settle. Mr.Hurley communicated on an almost daily basis with me what he was doing to help me win my case. He made sure I understood the process of the proceedings which put me at ease especially as this was the first time i ever experienced being a part of criminal court. Mr. Hurley did everything to win my case including meeting with the DA weekly to fight for me. In the end we decided the best option was to take plea bargain. I was threatened with 9 years in prison. Richard Hurley fought for me and I received no jail time. I am forever grateful to Mr. Hurley his service; his honesty, his professional courtesy, his care, and most of all his results.
He always handle himself in a professional way, and always get the job done in a timely manner.
F. Richard Hurley is an excellent general attorney. I highly recommend him.
I found most of the time the things im thinking about in or for the community they being to the surface and really dig to get answers.
