Excellent Attorney, Please Read!!. When we first found out my loved one, who is very young and had no criminal record, was going to need a lawyer none of us knew what was going to happen. When the family found Richard Poland everyone was still in shock, unsure of what came next. Rich explained everything every step of the way in language we could all understand. There was no grandstanding or trying to use legal terms none of us knew. He was clear and direct, letting us know what to expect and why he was doing certain things. He never made empty promises and was very clear about what my nephew was facing. When we saw him in action in the court he was assured without being cocky and was obviously at ease and confident. Anytime the court threw a curveball at us he was able to explain the situation and immediately had a plan of action. Rich is a very observant man and a quick thinker, you can tell that he takes in what is happening in front of him and assesses the situation. Watching him question witnesses in court was a real confidence builder; nothing that was said threw him off. During the worst time in my nephew’s life he treated him with respect and remained a calm presence during a truly chaotic time. We could not have asked for a better lawyer, and are grateful for him. Rich is a dedicated, hard-working man and his rates were reasonable. In fact there were definitely meetings we had with him that did not end up on he bill, not saying he won’t charge you but he is fair and he is definitely in this for justice, not money. I am happy to recommend him and am confident that if you find yourself in a situation where you need a lawyer that Rich Poland will do his best to represent you.
Knowledgable, Experienced and Accessible. Richard Poland is a knowledgeable and competent attorney. Just check his bar record ( I did!) 35 years without a complaint. Additionally, his many years of practice have rendered him not only knowledgeable of the law itself, but of local courts, including the DA’s and judges that work in them. He has a real feel for reading a situation and advising his clients appropriately for their unique circumstances. In our experience he is by far the most attentive trial lawyer we’ve encountered and he does truly have a heart. Rich has always been there throughout our family’s a lengthy court trials. He communicates clearly, is readily available and has a great bilingual support staff. I wish we’d never been in a situation where we had to get to know him, but since we did, I am grateful for all he’s done for our family. We highly recommend him should you find yourself in need of quality legal representation.
Best Criminal Attorney. I've worked with various attorneys over my lifetime and I have to say that Rich Poland by far has been the best. He is knowledgeable in his area of expertise, hard working and gave my case his full attention. Rich really cares about his clients. He never made a promise he couldn't keep and I always knew what to expect. He knows the law, and his years of practice speak for themselves. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I strongly recommned Rich to those in need and would recommend him to any friend or family member.
Richard Poland Is A Poor Excuse For An Attorney! Please Read. Richard Poland is the worst attorney I ever came across. I am so happy I found a site where I can review this attorney. My husband was charged with having alot of marijuana in his vehicle. This is my husband's first offense. Richard Poland told my husband that his fee would be $15,000 for his services $4,000 to get probation. My husband paid the money. Poland told my husband to fight it in court. My husband wanted to take the plea bargain for 2 years. He would do half the time. Poland said trust me pay the $4,000 I'll give you probation. Poland said he needs another $6,000 and he could get my husband dismissed from the charges. I'm crying as I'm writting this review. Poland said it's better if we just take this to trial. We told Poland I thought my husband would get Probation he said that's not an option right now. Poland asked for an additional $5,000 to take it to trial.The trial is over and my husband got sentenced to 5 years. Poland said he would do our appeal in 1 week. A month went by me calling his office and getting the run around. I had to hurry and contact the California Appelate Project and get my husband's appeal into the system. Richard left me broke, and my husband should of took the 1st plea bargain that was given to him 2 years. Poland is a snake and he did not care what happened to my husband. All he cared about is the money he took from us. I will never trust any attorney not ever. Thank you Richard for destroying our lives. Don't do business with Poland he will lie just to get money out of you!
Terrible Attorney. The worst attorney that money can buy. Any reviews that you read that are positive are probaly reviews that Poland wrote about himself. He ripped off my husband 0ver $30,000. My husband was sentenced to 15 years. I should of read the other bad reviews I read about him before me and my husband hired this guy. Poland needs to work behind the desk and answer phones. Leave the cases for real attorneys. Stay away from this con artist.
