Richard Prantil PhotoI became an attorney because of the way I was raised by my parents, to respect the law, and to treat people the way you expect them to treat you.  My family and education background taught me to help people and protect those that need protecting. I became a Family Law Attorney because I realized that there was a need for family lawyers that want to help their clients through the most difficult journey of their lives.  This is especially true if there are children involved.  Coming from a strong Italian family background, I was shown by my parents that children come first.  I truly care about my clients and their children..

I have dedicated myself, since the day I decided to go to law school, to becoming the best educated, most knowledgeable, most technically proficient attorney, and most importantly, the most caring that I can be. I have built my practice since 1990 based upon this approach with a goal of providing the best possible legal care to individuals with divorce and family law needs.”
