Professional Endorsements

Mr. Ehrlich has been endorsed multiple times by his peers, other attorneys:

James Eccleston, JD, https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamesecclestonjd/

I highly recommend Richard Ehrlich. He is a highly capable lawyer and financial planner, who cares deeply for the needs of his clients, and who maintains the highest ethical standards.

Joe Fernandez, https://www.linkedin.com/in/joe-fernandez-71145310/

I find PM. Rich Ehrlich to be an outstanding man with high moral values. He was not only an unbelievable Worshipful Master for Coral Springs Lodge #373 but continues to be a great and inspirational Brother not to mention a very dear friend. I believe he will be an asset for any Business, Organization or any other endeavor he decides to undertake.

David Kenyon, JD, https://www.linkedin.com/in/dmkenyon/

Aside from being an astute lawyer, Richard Ehrlich possesses a quality that is not as common in attorneys: devotion. It has been my experience in knowing him for the past twenty-five years that he is uncommonly devoted to his family and friends, but also to his clients. Unlike many of his colleagues, Richard stays connected to people, communicates well with them, and leaves nothing behind in rendering assistance. There are a lot of smart lawyers out there, and surely Richard is one of them, but few possess his tenacity when it comes to communication and service to those around him. The number one complaint about lawyers is their aloofness. Richard is the opposite of that.

Rick Diamond, https://www.linkedin.com/in/rickdiamond/

Entrepreneur/CEO who worked with Mr. Ehrlich previously.

Richard is very, very bright, has great integrity, is extremely creative, and most importantly, is a lot of fun to work with. He helped me through some very large and complicated deals. I look forward to my next opportunity to work with him again... and would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to others.

I definitely endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Ehrlich is very knowledgeable in his field and has been a good resource when I needed it. I deal with a lot of real estate lawyers and they are all competent but Rich is personable and will take the time to listen and give you good, practical advice. I have found him to be very professional in his approach and able to think outside the box. 

Seth Rothstein, Landlord or tenant Attorney on Apr 8, 2010

Richard Ehrlich is an intelligent, knowledgeable, capable and trustworthy attorney. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to a client in need of Estate Planning or Probate assistance in the Coral Springs area. The reason I am writing this endorsement is not just because Mr. Ehrlich is an authority on Wills, Trusts and Probate matters, but because he combines his skill as an attorney with the highest level of professionalism and integrity. It has been a pleasure working with Mr. Ehrlich, not only does he represent his clients well, but he was happy to invest time helping a younger member of the Bar. His practice should be an example to others.

Eric Norstedt, Securities and investment fraud Attorney on Mar 18, 2010

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

I have referred a number of clients to Mr. Ehrlich. Most of my clients had difficult estates issues. Mr. Ehrlich handled these matters with the utmost aplomb with the greatest satisfaction of my clients. I can think of no other attorney that I would rather choose in delicate family issues of the deepest concern.

Russell Robbins, Real estate Attorney on Mar 10, 2010

Relationship: Worked together on matter

Richard and I have had the pleasure of working together on several matters. As an attorney who solely practices real estate law, I frequently find myself in need of assistance with probate (and estate planning).  Richard is the attorney that I entrust the referral of my clients to. He has ably and effectively represented their interests in preparing wills, trusts and probating their estates. Having an attorney of Richard's knowledge and experience at the ready for my clients' needs has enhanced my practice and I know that Richard will handle your matters with the same efficiency and concern as he treats my clients.

Lawrence Finn, Wrongful death Attorney on Mar 9, 2010

I have been Rich's friend since the first day we started law school. Rich is excellent to work with and has a great sense of humor. He has a wide-ranging knowledge base, extending far beyond legal issues, which enable him to guide clients in a practical and meaningful manner. Estate planning is a long-term process and I can think of no one better to work and interact with recurrently than Rich.
