My Philosophy

My goal is to help clients resolve issues, reduce stress, and sleep better at night. I strive to offer legal services at a value that is affordable to the majority of the population thus bringing legal assistance to those not in the top income brackets and level the playing field. I am always happy to answer any questions and give a full review of what services I can offer before any payment is expected. &emdash;Richard J Cahan

Client Satisfaction | Fees

I work predominately on Flat fees so there are no surprise amounts due, this means if the case takes eight trips to San Antonio for the flat fee you are not charged for each trip.

Metro Austin Reviews

We hired Richard Cahan after a tenant trashed our house and disappeared without paying the last month of rent. Richard was extremely organized. He knew our case inside and out, and helped us get a judgement against the renter which covered all of the damages, legal fees, and missing rent. He always responded to our emails in a timely fashion. He was even able to make it so we did not have to go to court and instead could give our testimony by phone. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for down to earth, competent help with a legal matter.
