In 2000, Mr. Ritchie earned his Juris Doctor and was admitted to the

Mr. Ritchie began working in 2000 at the same nationally recognized

on cases and forged a professional relationship. Mr. Ritchie’s
negotiation skills, work ethic and ability to work under pressure
contributed to his success at the firm. In 2008, Mr. Ritchie was named
co-managing attorney. While at the firm, Mr. Ritchie specialized in IRS
