Thank God I hired Richard McConathy. Not only did he clean up my record, but he got my life back on the right track. I am recently divorced and my whole life just exploded into a mess of my own making. I am shocked that I wasn't thrown in jail with how many times I went in front of the judge. Yet Richard kept saving me. Finally he gave me the big talk and I'll tell you that it was a big wake up. I'm now back on track in life. Richard is a great lawyer and wise beyond his years, but most important is he cares what happens to you as a person. You can trust this man with your life, I did.

Richard saved my life from the path of destruction it was on. My twenties was full of many hazy memories and mistakes. I should be in prison for my selfishness, but because of one man and my sweet Gama I doing life right. So many other lawyers would have quit on me, but Richard kept going. He kept me out of prison and got me into treatment and kept it where I could seal my record. I'm now married to the love of my life with two of the most precious little girls a man could wish for. I just got my master plumber standing and own my own business. This wouldn't be happening If one man, Richard McConathy, didn't save me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Got the first and last DWI of my life. I was so overwhelmed and did't know where to start. The entire system is designed to confuse the average person to the benefit of the State. I found Richard online and watched his videos. I felt very at ease with how he said he would handle my case after meeting in person. From start to finish the firms handling of my case was outstanding. If your in need of DWI defense in North Texas call Richard McConathy first.

Richard and Brian are some really good lawyers in my book. They took what looked like to me as an impossible situation and somehow got it to turned in my favor. It was a long road and a lot of stress, but these guys have no give up attitude.I would happily recommend Richard and his whole team to handle your case. He did great on mine.

As a local business owner, I could not have a conviction on my record. This would have ruined my reputation and my ability to make an income. I felt after interviewing Richard that he really understood my issues and needs unlike the other attorneys I saw prior to him. I am glad I made the right choice, my case was dismissed! In addition to his top notch legal work, I found the way he and his office work together as a team is five star all the way. This law firm says they strive to be the best and their work ethic shows it. I know how hard it is to find good people and Richard has assembled a great team. Much thanks to Cynthia.

You never think your going to be arrested in your life. You go to school, get a good job and work hard. Then someone you thought cared for you points the finger and said you did something to get back at you. No one listened, especially the police and DA. That all changed after I hired Richard McConathy. He took over the case and he and his team of lawyer fought back and won. Not only did he fight hard, but he treated me like a person and not a number. This guy takes pride in what he does and cares about you as a client, but more importantly as a person.

I cannot give enough praise to Richard and the whole staff that worked on my case. From the start Richard was very professional and took charge on my case. This is a larger criminal defense firm with about 6 lawyers. I was afraid i wouldn't get the personal touch but that was not the case. Every time I called I received a return call that day. Felt at ease and in good hands, especially with Richards paralegal Cynthia. This legal team has the man power to take on bigger cases like mine and I am happy I hired them. Thanks to everyone for there hard work.

Thanks to Richard I have a clean record! Only been in trouble in my life two times. Once, right out of collage and and 40 years later after I got pulled over last year. In both cases I used a McConathy as my lawyer. I used Richard's father- Tex back in the 70's and now the son. I have to say that tough lawyers run in this families blood. Thanks again Richard for all your hard work.

Richard McConathy is the hardest working and toughest lawyer I have ever seen in my life. A total Bulldog from the word go. My dad recommended him and what a great result I got. If you've got trouble with the law on any matter in Fort Worth, Texas hire this guy and his team of lawyers.

I am amazed at how great Richard McConathy handled my case. The whole team did such a wonderful job from the very start. I can't say enough words how happy that I hired this firm over the others I interviewed. Listen to Richard and if he tells you to work the system and ride the case out to the very end, believe me he knows what he is doing. Hire Richard McConathy.

Words are not enough to express my thanks to Richard McConathy and his team. His efforts alone saved my daughter. At the start of it all, things seemed so hopeless for us, but after hiring Richard that all changed. Although it was a draw out process, Richard assured us that things would break our way eventually. One of the best decisions in my life was choosing him as my daughter's lawyer! Great Job Richard!

Wow, Wow, Wow! Richard McConathy is the best criminal defense lawyer in DFW. I was being charged for defending myself from my EX and it got filed as a felony. My sweet Dad told me to use his friend as my lawyer. This lawyer was very nice man but as the case went on I started to see he wasn't familiar with criminal law. I was set for trial and I was in a total panic. I found Richard and he agreed to take over the case with only two week to get ready. After looking at the file for ten minutes he found an error in my EX's statement and used it in court. The judge agreed and the case was dismissed and I got a ticket. From a felony facing up to 10 years to a 50.00 dollar ticket Wow! Only hire real criminal defense attorney. Richard McConathy is the best.

I am very happy I found this firm to handle my case. I made a big mistake coming home from Denver with a few items that were legal in that State, but quickly learned by Texas highway patrol it was not here. It's a felony! My friend got charged with the same case as well. He went with a lawyer friend of his family that does civil law. I wanted a criminal lawyer. What a big difference in how the cases were handled. My case was knocked down to a class C and just had the case erased off my record. My friend took 3 years of felony probation and we were in the same car. Great work by Richard and the whole team up at the office.

Cannot say enough good things about Richard and Brian. From start to finish my case was handled with care and professionalism. They always took the time to make sure I knew what was going on in my case. At the start things looked very bad from a evidence standpoint, but Richard told me to give it time and allow his team to sort it out. I couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks to all including the staff of paralegals, great job!

As a single mother, money can be very tight and life overly stressful. I got myself into a bad situation thinking I could make some easy money with a friend. Was I wrong! I was so stupid in not realizing I was really looking at some jail time. I sat up most nights after my arrests thinking who was going to take care of my kids if I was sent away for a long time. Thank God I found Richard McConathy. He took my case with a great payment plan I could afford and was always on myside in the case and with my money issues. After it was all done I never spent a day in jail and I was never convicted of a felony. I've got a new lease on life thanks to him. If your like me and your kids are all you got and need help, Richard is the lawyer you need.

Having a good time a Jerry World and was heading home after the game. As usual the Arlington PD was out in full force. Cops stopped me and wouldn't even give me a reason why. 18 hrs later after taking my blood by force I got out of jail. I got right on my phone and the first guy to pop up was Richard McConathy. Within 5 minutes I was on the phone with him. Wow, what a take charge type of lawyer. You can tell he runs a tight ship because everything from his staff down to his associates are top notch. After watching my tape he and his team in Fort Worth argued to the judge the stop was not legal and the Judge agreed. My case was dismissed and I'm getting it erased off my record. Would Highly recommend Richard!

Richard McConathy and his team of lawyers are the Best in Texas! I really messed up and was going to lose everything including going to Prison!!! I don"t know who they did it, but the whole case is gone. Poof like magic. It took almost a year, and Richard kept telling me to be patient. He was right all along. Big thanks to Brian, Cythina, Amanda, Joylyin, and the whole team. I can never repay you fully for what you guys have done for me.

I went to a show at Winstar and was caught coming back down to Dallas in Denton. The cop said I was speeding, but I knew he was lying. I spent about over 1000.00 dollars getting me and my car out of jail. What a freaking racket. I was real apprehensive finding a honest lawyer. I interviewed about 20 of them and found most of them to be the same guy or gal in a suit until I found Richard. This guy is the real deal. Was very impressed with his knowledge of the law and his local connections. He and Brian took my case to trial and got a not guilty. If your in the same situation I was in, don't mess with the local traffic ticket lawyers, get a great dwi lawyer like Richard and Brian!

To say I was behind the 8 Ball was an understatement, I got myself into trouble again and this time the court was out for blood. If the DA had got their way I would be in jail for 180 days and would have lost my job and home. Hired Richard in hopes of just getting it somewhat under control. Wow was I surprised with the results. 3 days time served. I walked out with him and Brian and no longer have to deal with Tarrant county anymore. Thanks guys, I'm now on the right path.
