Summary

At the age of 13, I attended a civil rights march to Music Hall on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with my Aunt Megan, who I have had the pleasure of practicing law with for my entire career. From that point, I had more than a passing interest in the civil rights of all people. During my Junior year at Bowling Green State University, where I was majoring in English and History and minoring in Africana Studies, I considered careers as an English professor or an attorney. After interning for a summer at Southwestern Ohio injury firm, I realized my passion for promoting and protecting the civil rights of all people and for providing people with access to justice through the legal process. In 2007, I began practicing law focusing my legal practice on Personal Injury Law, Negligence Law, Employer Intentional Torts, Employer Violations of Specific Safety Requirements and Products Liability, among other areas.

Each time I meet with a new client, I explain my approach that utilizes my expertise and experience within the practice as a whole and that pinpoints the right experts for each specific case. I tell my clients that I will do everything possible to make sure that they walk away from a trying experience with the best possible outcome for them. I am upfront and genuine in my approach to each case and will listen to my clients’ concerns and questions while clearly communicating the steps in the legal process that can lead to a successful outcome.

I opened The Richards Firm in April 2000 with the goal of providing a personal experience with a trusted, local personal injury attorney. My office is located in downtown Hamilton not far from the corn fields of Ross, Ohio, in Butler County, where I grew up picking sweet corn, bailing hay, and working various jobs.

I reside near Cincinnati. I have served as a youth hockey for a number of years with the Northern Kentucky Youth Hockey Association and have served on numerous local boards.
