About Lonnie

Learn Lonnie’s areas of practice.

I have lived in Alexandria, VA and practiced law for over 40 years. I  concentrate on estate planning, business and commercial law.  I have been fortunate to have a full life outside of my law practice:  I am married to Marcia Call and have four adult children.  For many years, I was active in politics and, during the 90's, served on the Alexandria City Council for three terms (9 years).  I have also served as Chair of the Board of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, The Campagna Center. Alexandria Democratic Party and Commonwealth Baptist Church, as well as President of the Del Ray Citizens Association. I enjoy studying history, vocabulary words and poetry.

"No One Better"
Lonnie helped us with our legal papers (wills, etc.) in 2013, and recently helped us update all documents. We are always nervous about these issues, but he made it so very easy. We highly recommend Lonnie for his knowledge, competence, professionalism, and - yes, his warmth and sincerity.

Highly recommend Lonnie for estate planning!
My husband and I needed to have all those docs everyone needs to do while they are still of "sound mind". We consulted with Lonnie Rich at RRBMDK and he was terrific. Explained everything in terms non-lawyers could easily understand. He did our wills, powers of attorney, living will, etc. We highly recommend them!

Outstanding Legal Support on Our Wills and Related Documents
Lonnie explained all the choices and ramifications to my wife and me regarding our possible decisions about our wills, powers of attorney and advanced medical directives. He made the process very easy and answered all of our questions to our complete satisfaction. Lonnie was very focused on making sure we asked as many questions as we need to feel comfortable and raised several other issues for us that we never considered before.

"Besides being an excellent estate planning attorney, Lonnie does great work assisting business clients with all phases of managing the organization, from startup to exit strategy. He can assist with the setup, organization, re-organization, sale or purchase of a business, and provide ongoing advice to ensure compliance with necessary filings, etc. Many local business owners have trusted Lonnie, and with good reason."
Corporate and incorporation Attorney | Nov 20
Relationship: Co-worker
"Lonnie uses his long experience to "dig deep" into a corporate or transactional matter and ask questions one might not think to ask. His many connections in the local business community not only mean that he may have encountered similar situations before, but also that he may know of a way through the thicket of issues that presents itself."
