Vermont Real Estate Attorney Richard J. Fox


Today we live in a world where business relationships have been diminished to mere transactions. Many of us have a closer relationship with the person who takes our coffee order than with the professionals to whom we entrust some of our most important life decisions.  We focus more on cost or time than we do on seeking actual value and knowledge, and then profess surprise when we get exactly what we paid for.   

There was a time, however, when we consulted a trusted attorney when dealing with legal matters. Such attorneys were advocates, counselors, and advisors. They educated their clients and helped them see their full scope of options and the implications of those choices.  These attorneys developed long-standing relationships with their clients, resulting in the attorney being more than a means to an end, but a valuable member of a decision-making team.  

The Law Office of Richard J. Fox PLLC works to develop and sustain such relationships with its clients. Whether buying or selling property, resolving boundary disputes, or seeking guidance on questions of property law, you can feel confident that you and your legal matters are not just another file on a desk.

By working with the Law Office of Richard J. Fox PLLC you are building a relationship where you get the value of:

  • More access: Because business does not always wait for “normal” business hours, Richard is available to you well beyond “normal” business hours via e-mail, telephone, Skype, and in person.
  • Less confusion: You will not deal with multiple layers of staff and attorneys. Your file will be directly overseen by Richard, start to finish.
  • More education and “preventative maintenance”: After meeting with Richard, you will understand your course of action, the importance of any documents you have signed, and how it all affects you both now and in the long term.
  • Less unnecessary fees and expenses: Richard’s fees are based on the work actually performed and expenses actually incurred.
