About Me

In Phoenix and throughout Arizona, we have built a trusted reputation for standing up for the rights of people whose lives have been changed by the negligent act of another person or a business. From dog bite cases to premises liability matters, we handle every case with energy, intelligence, compassion, and a commitment to meeting the individual needs of each client. Call me today if you need a Phoenix personal injury lawyer.

Friedl Richardson Trial Lawyers was founded in 1997 and we have worked hard creating a reputable and highly-rated firm competent in every level of personal injury law.  Our firm does not obtain clients through paid advertising but rather through referrals and hard work.
