Nancy Richards practices law in several states and federal jurisdictions. While her state of primary practice is Missouri, she also practices in Illinois and is licensed to practice in the District of Columbia. In Missouri, she is often found in Jefferson County, St. Louis County and St. Louis City. She also handles cases in St. Francois County, St. Charles County, Franklin County and other surrounding areas - At any given time, she will also be handling cases in federal court, the Eastern District of Missouri.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, graduated in 1988 from Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri with a double major in Criminal Justice and Sociology. In 1998, graduated from Ohio Northern University School of Law - J.D. with High Distinction, ranked number one in her class. In 1998, she was appointed as a Special Assistant Attorney General in Missouri's tobacco litigation. She is a member of the Missouri, Illinois, and D.C. Bars. Admitted to practice before Eastern and Western District of Missouri, and Southern District of Illinois.
Today, she is often asked to review a number of automobile collision injury cases, and those cases accepted have been brought to successful and very satisfying conclusions. In fact, in the most recent two (2) cases she settled, she not only was able to negotiate the maximum policy limits for her clients, but was also successful in getting her clients additional money under "underinsured motorists" benefits. And, because our office is skilled at negotiating and manuevering these types of cases, she maximizes the client's recovery by keeping client costs low.
For example, in one case where Nancy negotiated two (2) different settlements from two companies for a client totaling $75,000.00, the client's costs were merely a couple hundred dollars. That meant a lot more money in the client's pocket.
Nancy gets many cases from referrals by prior clients and other attorneys. She has lectured on a number of topics for attorneys and paralegals, has published articles and drafted materials for various publications, and is a current member of the Missouri Bar Committee on the Bar's Referral program after being appointed by one of the Bar's past Presidents, Patrick Starke.
On the personal side, if you have ever been to our office, you already know she is a huge supporter of the furry, four-legged, finned and feathered friends. Before going to law school, she was the Administrator for the Humane Society of Southeastern Missouri in Cape Girardeau.
