Richard W Gunger Attorney At Law
I finally finalized my divorce and custody case and I cannot tell you how happy that I retained Richard Gunger in this matter. I started with another local attorney who was not really aggressive and didn't have a good bed side manner. I decided to change attorneys and my former attorney actually recommended Richard. Right away Richard and I developed a great rapport. The minute I walked into court with him I could tell that he was very well respected by both the court staff and the judge. At the time we were finalizing the custody aspect of my divorce, the judge actually said in court that in all the years he had been a Judge that he had never changed his mind after deciding an issue, but after Richard made a very impassioned argument on my behalf, the judge actually ruled in my favor on important parenting/ visitation issue. Even the Attorney for the Child that disagreed with my previous attorney's position and would not return any of my phone calls, spoke up on my behalf and said that he was convinced that Richard's arguments were in my children's best interest. If you want an attorney that will fight with compassion yet still be aggressive on your behalf hire him. He is extremely honest with you and does not just tell what you want to hear to get your money. Just the opposite...he is honest and will explain your rights in detail and never talk down to you. I would without reservation suggest calling Richard if you want the best Attorney in Auburn on your side.

I retained Dick to handle a very complicated Federal Court case. He walked me through case step by step and kept me informed throughout the whole matter. My hearing went very smoothly and he kept me calm the whole time. The trustee asked me if Mr Gunger did a good job explaining to me all of my petition and further indicated that he did a perfect job on my case. I have used Dick's services in the past and he has never let me down. He has been our family Attorney for over twenty year and has always done a fantastic job. I would highly recommend him if you want the job done right the first time! Thank you so much Dick!!!A+++++++

I retained Mr. Gunger to set up a complex Estate Plan. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about Wills and Estates. He impressed me right off the bat with his expertise and command of the laws in New York State. He made the whole process from start to finish very easy and kept me stress free. I cannot say enough about how smart this man is. Should I need any other legal services in the future, I would go back to Richard in a heartbeat. Overall great experience with his Firm,

I have used Rick Galbato as an attorney for several years now and he has done excellent work for me. He recently opened his own practice, and based on his great reputation with those who have actually had work done by him in the past, I am confident he will be a huge success. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to use him again should I need services in his area of practice.

Overall great experience. Handled my legal issues promptly and professionally. He took the time to take a detailed and thorough review of my workers compensations case. I left with a better understanding of my rights, and felt like I had someone on my side for the first time since my injury. Loved the building and appreciate the handicap accessibility.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
