Attorney

Kurt RichardsI am attorney Kurt Richards, and for more than 25 years I have successfully represented more than 3,000 family law clients in Staten Island, New York and in New Jersey.

At my firm, Kurt T. Richards, P.C., I advocate for my clients while avoiding unnecessary litigation. I am focused on preserving both your rights and your wallet. I offer my clients a personal level of attention as I offer straightforward, no-nonsense, efficient legal advice.

The challenge of family law drew me to this practice, but I am not in the business of offering false hopes. I will gather the facts relating to your family law issue and give you a candid idea of what you can expect.
