About me

I have been living in South Florida since I was eight years old. My father and grandfather were attorneys and they preached to me the importance of the lawyer and obtaining justice for the client.


I obtained a Psychology degree from Florida International University at the age of 20. At that time, I went to the University of Florida Law School. While in law school, I took many graduate level Psychology courses. I graduated from law school at the extremely young age of 22.


Throughout the early stages of my career I found myself in the courtroom trying every kind of case; defending shopping centers on slip and fall cases, and inadequate shootings; medical malpractice cases; product liability cases; and complex estate cases.


For several years, I was a specially appointed Public Defender. Judges would appoint me to defend people accused of crimes when the Public Defender had a conflict. I was able to obtain excellent results as a specially appointed Public Defender.


I then decided to represent plaintiff’s exclusively and found this to be a truly fulfilling endeavor.


If you, or a family member, is injured, I look forward to giving you all of my time, experience, and energy in obtaining the best possible result for you or your family member.

Customer Reviews

Richard Bolton is a very good lawyer and worked hard for me. More importantly to me was the fact that he always spoke to me when I called, kept me informed about my case and just cared about me and my family. There are lots of lawyers but very few who are both excellent in the law, in court and great to speak with. He is very good and deserves a far better rating with Avvo!

I have had multiple cases with Mr. Bolton, both on the same side and against him. I have always found him to be a zealous advocate for his clients while still maintaining the professionalism and integrity of the profession. He has always maximized the value for his clients through creative insight into his cases and his ability to focus on the opponent’s weaknesses which he reveals through thorough discovery. When I have been on his side he has worked collaboratively with me to achieve excellent results. Perhaps his best attribute is that he “gets it” – – in that he understands his cases and sees the big picture without being distracted by the obstructions placed by his opponents.

I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Bolton!

I hired Richard for my accident case and he went after the dirtbags that caused my accident and made them pay. He got me a great settlement and made my life a whole lot easier.
