I am a native of Greensboro, North Carolina and am presently a proud resident of Durham, North Carolina. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ("UNC"), where I double majored in Management and Society & Sociology.

  

I received my Juris Doctor from North Carolina Central University ("NCCU"), where I graduated at the top of my class. I continued my mission of serving low income communities by working with North Carolina Legal Aid, the Civil Litigation Clinic, and Foreclosure Defense Clinic while in Law School. NCCU has one of the top clinical programs in the nation and I was proud to serve my community under such esteemed legal advisors. I received the North Carolina Bar Pro Bono Certificate, where I served approximately 500 hours during the course of my law school career. Recently, I received the NAACP Humanitarian of the Year Award.

 

After Law School I worked in private practice focusing primarily in Criminal Law and Personal Injury. As the present managing partner of Richberg Law I am confident that I will have more flexibility to focus on the areas that will best serve my community.

Shayla Richberg is AMAZING!!!!
Shayla Richberg is very knowledgeable and professional. She has truly been a blessing throughout my ongoing legal matter. She has gone above and beyond countless times doing extensive research and timely filing of notices, briefs, pleadings, etc. Shayla is very thorough and continues to keep me updated every step of the way. She has given me numerous credits which have in turn helped me cover my financial responsibility. Shayla is always fully prepared for her hearings and utilizes her legal expertise to prove her case presenting the facts while applying the law. I’m thankful that Shayla is handling my case and will not hesitate to contact her for any legal issues in the future.

Hand’s Down the Best!
Shayla is a wealth of knowledge. She made the experience a breeze. She explained every document in detail and answered all my questions. All my real estate deals are done through Richberg Law and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Efficient and helpful
Shayla expertly guided us through the process of refinancing our rental property. She always called me back, explained everything thoroughly, and was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely employ her services again, and will recommend her to others.

Great service!
We worked with Shayla on a refinance for my mother's home. This process is typically a straightforward process, but our circumstances turned out to be everything but straightforward. Shayla was great at guiding us along the process and helping us receive communication from our lender who we could never seem to get in contact with. She went out of her way to educate herself on our situation since we were refinancing my mother's home and documents from 20+ years ago could not be found or were initially filed incorrectly by the previous closing agent. Her steadiness and diligence got us across the finish line!

Excellent and Informative
Ms Richnerg is very professional and courteous. She helped us close on our mortgage and it was smooth and seamless. Took her time to explain over 70 pages in details and it was all done virtually over google meet. Fees very reasonable and closing was done on time and deed recorded before end of day. I will forever recommend her to anyone looking for a closing attorney or even other representations to her.

Excellent Service
Shayla Richberg helped me and my partner refinance our house. She was wonderful to work with— very queer friendly, very responsive, and super willing to spend as much time as needed to explain all of the confusing legal jargon. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs legal help.

Made my first refinancing process simple
Shayla is a highly professional and organized person and it showed throughout the entire refinance process. If I had a question she was quick to answer it. If she had a question for me that I needed to answer, but didn't have the answer for, she would find the necessary person(s) and have the answer to her question in less than 24 hours. I will definitely use her services again.

Great Communication
My first closing with Shayla - she is awesome. She ANSWERS the phone. To be honest, her office is not close to mine but I would use her for closings being a distance away because of her professionalism and responsiveness. I work with attorneys often and am rarely "impressed." I was in this case - we were on the same team with the same goal. I would highly recommend her.
