What Our Clients Are Saying

Dr. Stanley Elliot

After being married for 13 years, I was going through a rough separation. This was not easy for me and the separation also involved a custody battle for our child. I met with several attorneys and all of them were suitable. But I didn’t just need a suitable attorney, I needed an experienced, litigation-savvy attorney. Richard Gantt was that attorney. When we met over lunch, he was informative, empathetic, and also ready to do battle in the courtroom. Richard was available to talk day and night. He has thought of innovative ways to proceed with all aspects of my divorce/separation. I have recommended Richard to all my friends who are going through a divorce. This process has not been an easy one, but Richard has lessened the pain significantly. When I saw him in court, I was glad that he was my attorney and wasn’t questioning me. Richard Gantt has given me back something I thought I would never have again: Peace of Mind. Thanks Richard!

Richard did an amazing job representing me in a custody battle. I was extremely worried about my situation and wasn’t sure anyone would be able to help me. Richard fought hard for me and was a great advocate in court. He persuaded the Judge to order the outcome I was hoping for, and I was so thrilled and thankful for that result. I highly recommend Richard to anyone who needs a divorce lawyer to fight for them! The best!!!

Dr. Edgardo Parilla

I hired Richard to help me get through a contentious divorce after having let someone else go; I never looked back. Richard is sharp, crystal-clear on the law and will not hesitate to put up the good fight for what is right and equitable. Divorce is never easy, but Richard had the sensibility to put things into perspective for me and I never felt he was gouging me for fees. My divorce was the first time I needed this level of counsel, but I felt at ease because Richard was surgically aggressive, strategic and detailed-oriented in protecting my interests during the separation and final divorce. For example, when my ex- decided to back-off the separation agreement, Richard spent hours on the phone with the opposing counsel “helping them understand” the binding nature of the contract and the potential legal ramifications of a breach. At the end of this ugly ordeal, I felt my separation was even-keeled and just. But importantly, I also felt I had gained a friend I could trust. You want Richard on your side!


This woman will fight tirelessly, fiercely, and compassionately for you. She will go without sleep, investigate thoroughly, and will probably end up being a trusted friend! She was extremely thorough in my case and knew my case “more than I know my own children,” and she proved it. I cannot say enough good about Eva, and the Richard Gantt law firm in general. They genuinely care. They really want to help. And Eva is incredibly knowledgeable and goes far beyond what is asked.

Anything I have ever needed in regards to child custody, Richard has provided and has been by my side. He is thorough, precise, and understands the emotional turmoil families go through in this process. I highly recommend his service to anyone in the Triangle area.

Greg Gentry

I am sure that divorce is difficult for everyone. My case was no different. I have no doubt that it would have so much more difficult without Richard Gantt’s help. He always had my best interests in the forefront. If I ever had a question or concern, he was always available to me. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone in need of his services. The outcome of my case was certainly much better than I had hoped for.

Desmond Cutler

Mr. Gantt also went above and beyond with provisions and advice that made the cost of divorce a “break-even” outcome for me. Divorce is still expensive, but he saved me thousands of dollars of expense with several of our maneuvers. In the end, his effort made it feel like “a win” – knowing that no-one wins in divorce. And, some of our maneuvers could still benefit me, based on certain situations that may occur. I appreciated all the effort and time Mr. Gantt spent with my divorce. I would recommend him to anyone – especially if they have a high-conflict ex. Thanks again Mr. Gantt.


Richard worked with me on my divorce case and it was anything but simple. I found Richard to be smart, thoughtful, kind and strong. I liked that he wasn’t blustery and didn’t promise the moon. He was able to get through a lot of the smoke and mirrors that the other side was throwing up and get down to the facts. My case ultimately went to trial and Richard was successful in securing a fair outcome. I would highly recommend Richard to those looking for an honest, fair, straight-shooter who will tell you like it is and will be a strong advocate.

One thing to know a divorce is decided based on facts, interpretation of the law, and what can be argued on your favor, emotion unfortunately does not decide the outcome or the process. Richard does an amazing job of understanding the law, explaining it for you, and helping guide you towards the best decision and outcome. Emotions cloud our judgment and decision-making process when we are overwhelmed by them, and a divorce certainly does that. Richard understands this and while he empathizes with what your are going through, he holds himself as the rock that is ever vigilant to the best outcome for you and everyone involved. He takes care of the legal aspect so you can take care of yourself and the new life you will find.


I worked with Richard on my divorce case and he was able to speak with me understand the concerns of my case and help with get through it. He had my best interest at heart and based on my case was able to have my ex wife and her attorney come to a much more fairer equitable distribution claim than what was originally proposed. Richard is easy to work with and is always there for your call. Thanks Richard for helping though one of the toughest times!!

Richard Gantt was highly recommended to me by a friend. He did not disappoint! I had several issues I needed to address; some of which were standard submittals and some that needed to be negotiated. When all was said and done, I was able to get everything I wanted without even stepping into the courtroom. Not only that, but he took my case in a county that be normally doesn’t work in because I was running out of time. Very professional and focused on getting his clients the best outcome possible. I’d recommend him to anyone.


I knew Richard was the only choice when I had to utilize the services of a divorce attorney. Aside from his reputation as a top notch attorney, I’d known him to be just an all-around stand up guy; so involved with his family and the community. I needed someone to fight for what was fair for me when I was too weak to fight for myself. And fight he did. All I wanted was what was fair and, though I’m sure he could have easily had me walking away with more, Richard was able to deliver exactly the outcome I hoped for. I got the half of the “stuff” I wanted and ALL of the freedom and peace I deserved. Do not hesitate to consult with, then hire, Richard. Efficient, thorough, and so incredibly knowledgeable! Forever grateful!

Always fighting for me, showing compassion when I wasn’t always strong as it was so mentally exhausting. In the end my ex was held accountable, and a settlement was reached without having to go to court. Though I would have loved to seen Richard in action, he’s wicked smart, and knows the law.
