Richter Law Firm Teaches True Values: Trust & Patience
I allowed my two children to visit their other parent's family trying to ensure that the children learn for themselves where they come from sincerely, and not by alienation, giving them choices as they grow and was hoping to surround them with double the love and support. Then the jurisdiction games began and I, and other important family members, were alienated from their lives for almost 6 yrs. My family, friends, neighbors, and church family, sacrificed all we could access and whatever we had to attorneys who failed to educate us and misled us based upon desperation. We never gave up. It wasn't until we found attorney Richter and his team that we are now reunited with the children (who are now almost grown). Although there is much damage and trauma from the alienation, we are all honored to be amongst each other again and are rebuilding. Richter Law Firm taught us to trust our family's attorney because it was truly earned; not forced through desperation and despair. He is wise and patient. We must realize that attorneys are human beings; not necessarily super heroes. They have families they must fight to preserve as well; not just the client's. However, this law firm pulled us all off the edge of the cliff, and used the wisdom of law and humanity to gain our trust and kept us educated along the way. We had lost everything but were allowed to work out payments and pursue progressive realistic methods to proceed. We were not sold a dream. We are grateful and thankful for Richter and his team.

A competent lawyer that you can actually trust
Mr. Richter has handled multiple child custody issues for me. He kept my expectations realistic, was honest, did not nickel and dime me, & was extremely effective. He was aware of what issues were most important to me and helped me to stay focused on them. His demeanor is calming and he is a nice person. He can be extremely busy at times, but he's good at what he does. I am beyond grateful for everything he has done for our family.

I don't have enough words to describe how amazing the experience with Mr. Richter was. He works very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better services. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I has made the right choice. Thank you again Mr. Richter

Divorce Case
Mr. Richter recently handled my divorce case in a very timely, effective and most importantly professional manner. Mr. Richter's office staff always presented themselves in a professional and respectful manner towards me as well as my children. Regarding court appearances, Mr. Richter in my opinion is inexhaustibly fluent regarding Tennessee State as well as Constitutional Law. I have and will continue to refer Mr. Richter's Firm to any and all individuals in need of Family Law representation, as I know from personal experience lack of personal knowledge of the legal system can be frustrating. Some laws seem to change from day to day and when your family especially your children are in need of protection you have to have an attorney that practices with not only good ethics but knowledge of law that supersedes the standard run of the mill attorney you have to be able to trust the attorney you hire will work diligently for your family, Mr. Richter IS that attorney an experienced professional always on your side working diligently for you and your family.

Disregard this lawter
I had Linley as a lawyer for over 4 years. I am finally able to move my case to where I am now currently living. Before that, my family had paid him thousands of dollars and in return he lacked follow through calling me in a timely manner, returning emails, would act as my "friend", and never supported me as a client. It seems as though he is in it for the money and didn't seem to care. I would send him what I wanted from my divorce as far as parenting plans, mediation, and custody. He would never send me copies of ANY of my paper work. I am still waiting to get copies (maybe my new lawyer can obtain them?). I would not recommend him for anyone dealing with a divorce with children or a divorce period. He lacks the care and compassion I needed during a very, very difficult time in my life. I am still in awe of the long term affects it has bestowed upon me and my family.

Do not recommend
Mr.Richter would rarely return calls, lied on serveral issues, does not know military laws or doesn't practice with them. Office staff was rude and would name call childish stuff. Doesn't turn in court documents in a timely matter
