    100%
    Twenty-five years of criminal law experience, specializing in federal cases. Tried more than forty jury trials ranging from complex white collar fraud, bank robbery, bank fraud, firearms, drugs, and sexual assault. Briefed and argued more than seventy-five federal appeals in the Eighth and First Circuit Courts of Appeals.

    36 years, 1,000 cases

With over 30 years of federal criminal defense experience, I work tirelessly to hone a winning strategy, from the first days of a criminal investigation through closing argument. Not merely a trial attorney, I am your advocate--standing between you and the government to protect your rights, seizing tactical advantage to expose the weaknesses in the government's case, using my expertise to achieve the best possible outcome. My practice is devoted to criminal defense in federal court, both at trial and on appeal. Federal cases are more complex, more difficult, and the stakes are higher than state court cases, so an aggressive advocate is essential. I am that advocate. I have the experience, expertise, and commitment to my clients to ensure that your rights are fully defended, and my results reflect it.

His educational background is exceptional.

"When you have been practicing law as long as I have you can tell a lot about another lawyer from his background and from the way he approaches a legal question. I have not yet had the pleasure of working with Mr. Richman but I have been following his many responses to questions posted here on Avvo, particularly in the area of federal criminal practice. His knowledge of the field and his sharp, spot-on analytical ability are obvious and impressive. His solid background of thirteen years in the federal defender's office before another dozen years in private practice shows itself in his comfortable familiarity with this difficult field. He also gives straight answers and does not avoid tough truths. I would refer a client to Mr. Richman without hesitation."
