For over 40 years, the Law Offices of Richard Sax have provided skilled, effective legal representation to individuals and businesses in the Bay Area and throughout Northern California. The dedication of our firm to excellence and personal service has led to our strong reputation in the legal community. For us, lawyering is not merely an occupation. The law is our calling. We take action for you, and we get things done.

Our success derives from balancing a personal approach to each and every client with dynamic and tenacious advocacy. We regard clients as individuals, never as names attached to legal files. In every case, we strive to provide the finest legal services in a focused, creative, and cost-efficient manner, offering effective legal solutions that are grounded in experience.

At the Law Offices of Richard Sax, we’ve been passionate about fighting injustice since the founding of our firm. When people are wrongfully accused, we fight to preserve their rights. When people are wrongfully injured, we fight to bring them justice.

Whenever possible, we will always strive to resolve conflicts without going to trial. But when successful representation requires litigation, our experienced trial team aggressively battles to protect the rights of our clients.

Based in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, California, we offer a wide range of legal services in areas such as civil litigation, catastrophic personal injury/wrongful death, divorce and family law, real estate litigation, foreclosure defense, business law, and criminal defense. We are well qualified to provide full representation in state, federal, and appellate courts.

Many of our practice areas overlap. A client undergoing a divorce may need to obtain a restraining order, transfer title to real property, or update wills and trusts. Business clients may need us to prepare and review contracts, preventing future legal disputes, or to provide a vigorous defense in ongoing litigation. Having a broad base of knowledge helps our law firm cater to our clients’ needs—not just in the present, but for years to come.

We understand how disruptive legal issues can be in your life. Our straightforward approach will help you, your family, and your business resolve your concerns. We take action for you, and get things done.
