Mr. Richey practices primarily in the areas of business law, commercial litigation and probate.  He also devotes a portion of his practice to defending the rights of parents and children in divorce, child custody and CPS litigation.  His probate practice encompasses most areas of estate and trust administration, representing executors, trustees, heirs and beneficiaries in contested and uncontested matters.   


Mr. Richey also serves as General Counsel for several Austin businesses.  In this capacity, he is consulted on a regular basis regarding the day-to-day issues affecting his clients. He has handled a broad range of business law issues including contract drafting, negotiation, and enforcement, business entity formation, shareholder agreements, asset purchase agreements, employment agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, independent contractor agreements, employee manuals, employee termination, and real estate lease agreements.


Mr. Richey built his practice almost exclusively on referrals from other lawyers and current or former clients.  He is grateful for the trust and confidence that his clients and other attorneys have placed in him and he works hard to continue to earn that trust.
