The Richards Firm is a local personal injury law firm with an office in the City of Hamilton in Butler County, Ohio. The Richards Firm strives to make the legal system accessible to injured people. The Richards Firm takes pride in the personal attention provided to every client. Clients can expect regular communication and aggressive representation from an attorney born and raised in their area. When clients call, we answer. Clients only pay if we win a judgment or recover a settlement in a case.

Other law firms may have teams of attorneys and legal assistants who deal with clients at various steps of the legal process such as pre-litigation and litigation. Some firms need to sign as many cases as possible to afford larger advertising budgets and numerous personnel to expedite settlement in a case.

At The Richards Firm, you will deal directly with your attorney at every stage of your case. From intake to pre-litigation negotiations, litigation and discovery, and even post-settlement issues that implicate a local probate court, for example, your attorney will provide personalized care to you specific to your case. We believe that each client deserves personal attention and an approach that fits his or her needs and expectations. Each client is a real person to us, not another case or a speedy settlement.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or suffered a wrongful death, schedule your free consultation today. We are happy to make arrangements to travel to you.
