Our Philosophy

Your peace of mind is our mission...

Our Client Centric Philosophy

In our many years of practice and handling of thousands of cases, we have yet to find any two clients who have had the exact same set of circumstances.

It’s true that law can be complex and at times counter-intuitive. But in our view the role of a legal professional is to inquire about YOUR circumstances and apply the law in the way that most benefits YOU. Period.

Your professional relationship with BottomLine Lawyers PC starts with an initial consultation, the first step in a process we call our assessment protocol.

Every attorney owes every client a professional obligation of zealous advocacy. We raise the bar on professional performance using our assessment protocol tools.

Other ways we raise the bar and deliver outstanding personal service:

  • Stand in your shoes to assess your needs and desires
  • Use "outside the box" thinking
  • Bring an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach
  • Recommend a specific course of action tailored to you

We provide legal assistance for individuals and business people, from the viewpoint of mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, and seasoned business and professional people. It’s a new perspective. 

The assessment protocol tools used by BottomLine Lawyers puts you and your concerns at the center of attention rather than an area of law. This is a different way of looking at the profession of law and a sincere reflection of how we feel about our clients.  We are committed to discovering your bottom line and using our skills and experience to help you attain it. We know how to make the law work for you to obtain cost effective resolutions to your personal and business challenges.

We know what it’s like to manage the risk in life and handle its surprises. We know when the cards are stacked against you and where there are windows of opportunity. We take the time to understand the issues individuals and business people confront, and the need to take action that produces results that advance your objectives, not your legal bill.

We needed a lawyer to help us remove an illegal lien from our home. We sat down and explained everything that had happened to us and Richard walked us through the process of what we should do to get it removed . He was VERY helpful, very patient, and knew exactly what to do. The lien has been removed and we are very happy with him and his staff. Thanks so much Rich!!!!!

A lawyer you can trust...

I was sued as a defendant for fraud, misrepresentation, and conspiracy. After 5 years of delay, the case came to trial before a jury in Placer County Superior Court. After 3 days of trial, the jury returned a not guilty plea for all defendants. It was Richard’s knowledge of real estate law and well documented exhibits for the defense that caused the jury to return their verdict. While it is still possible for people only remotely involved to be sued in what intended to be a shake down for money, it is good to know that being well represented will allow the truth to to be told.

Knowledgable and prepared...

Richard, Dee and their staff, have worked on an array of legal issues for me and my family. They have shown generosity, compassion and a sense of professionalism unsurpassed. They have exceeded any and all of our expectations.

Consummate professionals...

Writing one’s final will and trust can be very stressful. Working with Richard in his very comfortable, homey office really put us at ease. We did not feel pressured to make certain “final decisions”. He gave us time to think and explained the pros and cons of certain issues in a way that we could understand… Whatever the future holds, we know he will be there for us. We highly recommend him.

Very easy to work with...
