Hi, I’m Krista Richman, and for over 12 years, I’ve dedicated my career to criminal defense, championing the rights of those accused of crimes. Since beginning my journey in the legal field in 2011, I’ve devoted myself entirely to this challenging yet rewarding area, where courage, grit, and determination are part of my daily life.

My passion for the law shines brightest in the courtroom, where I relish arguing motions and engaging in trials. But I firmly believe that the groundwork for any successful defense lies in the meticulous preparation that happens far from the public eye. Through thorough investigation and open, honest communication with my clients, I lay the foundation for our success together.

Throughout my career, I’ve navigated the complexities of the legal system, taking on 30 jury trials that range from misdemeanors to life-punishable felonies, including Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, Attempted Murder, and First-Degree Murder, to name a few. My expertise also spans specialized cases, such as 10-20-life gun cases, drug trafficking, and homicides, showcasing my commitment to defending diverse clients.

My academic background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Florida Gulf Coast University and a Law degree from Nova Southeastern University. While at Nova, I was actively involved in the Nova Trial Association and was honored with the highest grade award in the Criminal Justice Clinic, affirming my dedication to this profession.

I pride myself on my exceptional communication and oral advocacy skills, which have been crucial in my pretrial motion practices and overall success in the legal field. My ability to navigate the law effectively was recognized in 2015 when I received a BACDL hat trick for securing three consecutive NOT GUILTY verdicts, a milestone in my career that I’m particularly proud of.

Outside the courtroom, my life is all about family. I’m a wife and mother to two wonderful young daughters, and our family wouldn’t be complete without our two rescued dogs—an Australian shepherd mix and a cavapoo. We’re huge sports fans, especially of the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Panthers, and we share many joyous moments cheering for our favorite teams.

My career as a criminal defense attorney is not just a job; it’s a calling. It’s about fighting for justice, advocating passionately for my clients, and making a difference in their lives. But it’s also about balance, cherishing the moments with my family, and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. This is who I am, both in and out of the courtroom.
