Our Team

Our capable team brings the depth of its experience to respond to your needs.


The professional experience of Richie & Gueringer offers the best of both worlds: the capabilities, talent, and depth of a large firm, coupled with an exceptional level of personalized attention and responsiveness made possible by our smaller size.

We believe building long-term relationships is in the best interest of our clients and we are committed to you and your needs as much in each year of service as in the first.

You can be assured that we will always be accessible and that our work will be prompt. Once you become a client of the firm, one attorney will act as your principal contact, ensuring a consistent level of familiarity with your business and personal needs. However, you will have access to the full complement of knowledge and experience of every professional in the firm.

Confidentiality is a matter of grave importance to us and we enforce strict confidence for all of our clients. The firm maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of any information we acquire in the course of our representation.
