Richard Hackerman is extremely intelligent and compassionate. He took on my divorce and it was ugly and complex, to say the least. My children's safety while their father remains working as an expatriate in international locations with civil unrest was a large factor. He made sure I knew I had a voice in this process and that nothing would be dictated by my now ex-husband. We spent hours preparing for mediation and it paid off. During mediation, Mr. Hackerman fought hard. I couldn't believe how well the numbers worked out, all due to his expertise. 10 out of 10 I recommend working with Richard Hackerman.
I had Richard Hackerman as our family lawyer and could not have been happier. When I first met with Richard he explained the whole divorce process and answers all of my questions and concerns. Richard was always there for me, every step of the way. Going into this very stressful and emotional divorce process Richard made me feel at ease.
I had a very nasty divorce involving a bipolar wife who claimed her lawyer had told her she could take all my kids if she accused me of sexual abuse; four biological children; four children adopted from Maryland including two special-needs children; and a foster child taken in after another couple’s adoption had failed. I wanted to protect my children from having to see their parents duke it out in court but also protect them from the neglect and emotional abuse they were suffering from their mother. Richard did a fabulous job of understanding what my own priorities were and of helping me find the best way to patiently work through the process in order to achieve those goals. I can’t imagine what I would have done without him, and I now keep him on retainer as my family lawyer.
