It’s impossible to put into the words the amount of effort and consummate professionalism attorney Ashley Richter demonstrated through the year long process she saw me through. I was attempting to move a difficult and messy custody & support case from California to Wisconsin. To shed some light on the issues surrounding my case I need to explain a few details; Ashley had a very difficult pro se party to deal with (my ex-wife) and a case that involved a history of pertinent details that spanned over 3 years.
We initially attempted to settle out of court but after failing to meet deadlines, ignoring requests from the commissioner, stalling for months and a slew of ridiculous demands, my ex-wife decided to hire an attorney. I was exhausted and frustrated but Ashley kept me calm. To add a degree of difficulty, during this process I ran into issues with my security clearance (TS SCI) because of the financial mess my divorce had caused. I was also transitioning from active military service in the Navy Special Operations community to the civilian world. Ashley was understanding of my situation and in many occasions saved me from myself.
Her support and steadfast resolve kept me focused on our ultimate goal, my children and my family. With her guidance and diligent review of every detail she was able to formulate a plan and convey to the commissioner, the mediation attorney and ultimately my ex-wife’s last minute attorney the details that ultimately lead us to an unbiased and fair solution.
I can’t thank her and her staff enough for what they helped me accomplish. I appreciated Ashley’s no-nonsense approach and without a doubt I attribute my success in this case to her.

I began working with Ashley Richter when she practiced at a previous firm, at which time she was assigned my case because the attorney that I hired was unavailable for the court dates.
Ms. Richter was on time, professional, and compassionate in our pre-hearing meeting. She was knowledgeable, prepared, and well equipped to handle my case. Ms. Richter translated my concerns into a thorough document, and walked myself and my ex through the provisions. She was an excellent negotiator, fair in her assessment, and realistic in her advice. The outcome was exactly what I expected, if not better.
Ms. Richter moved to another firm, but I contacted her directly to discuss new concerns. She was very helpful in navigating the family law system, as well as knowledgeable in my options. Ms. Richter was engaged in my case, and a fantastic translator of the process, throughout the court proceedings. Again, the results were favorable, and timely.
We all know that an attorney is not cheap. Ms. Richter was very fair with her billings, had detailed logs of time spent and services rendered. She was flexible in her payment terms, and her retainer was more than reasonable. She even went the extra step to include attorney's fees in a court order that we were bringing action on.
I can not say enough about her professionalism, confidence, compassion, and sharp knowledge of law. Through my discussions with her, while awaiting court, I learned that she is a sponge for knowledge. She shared with me her desire to branch out into additional areas, to seek understanding and perspective. She works with a great team of resources!
I would highly recommend Ms. Richter's services, and consider her "my attorney" when it comes to navigating the court system and complex code of laws.

I highly recommend Ashley Richter if you're in need of a divorce attorney. She is highly knowledgeable and very professional. My divorce was not an easy case. My ex-spouse wanted half of my retirement funds but in the end I was awarded all my pensions because of Ashley's brilliance. She is always professional and whenever I emailed or called her, she responded in a timely manner actually 99% of the time, she got back to me immediately. She is well-organized, a fast-thinker, very meticulous and wise beyond her years. With my case being a difficult one, I was very lucky to have found and engaged Ashley Richter.

Ashley is a hard-working and diligent attorney. She advocates for her clients fiercely with not only her knowledge of the law, but with creative solutions that are specifically tailored to that client's needs. Her caring and attentive personality makes clients feel that they have the best representation. I highly recommend Ashley.

One of the highest compliments that any attorney can receive is to receive referrals from another attorney. In that regard, if I need to refer a family law client to another attorney, Ashley is one of the first people on my list. I trust that if a client is referred to her, the client will be satisfied, no matter the outcome. Ashley treats all parties, from clients, to witnesses, to opposing attorneys with respect and professionalism. I'm proud to be able to consider her a friend and a colleague and am happy to enthusiastically endorse her
