I was born in San Diego, California, and received my Juris Doctorate from the J. Ruben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1979.  I have been with Udall Shumway since 1979, however, in 1981-1982, I served as counsel for the Subcommittee of Mines and Mining for the United States House of Representatives in Washington, D.C.

-

I have been given an “AV” rating by the national rating service of Martindale Hubbell.  This rating is based upon lawyer peer review and is the highest rating for legal abilities and ethics, a rating which is given to only approximately the top 5% of lawyers nationwide.

-

I have extensive experience in the areas of personal injury, insurance issues and land use litigation.  I am attorney of record for various clients including Golfland Sunsplash in Mesa, Arizona.  I am involved with insurance issues and successfully argued the landmark case in Arizona: Darner Motor Sales v. Universal Underwriters, 140 Ariz. 383, 682 P.2d 388 (1984).

-

I am licensed to practice in all Arizona courts as well as the United States District Court of Arizona.  I am the past President of the East Valley Bar Association and am fluent in Spanish.  I am a board member of A New Leaf, Inc., a non-profit organization and am currently co-chairman of the 2010-2011 Mesa United Way Campaign.

-

I am also the resident partner in Arizona for CLC cases.  CLC or Consolidated Legal Concepts, Inc. provides legal services for major employers within the State of Arizona.  I and the firm of Udall Shumway have represented CLC clients since 2002.  The firm handles legal matters involving personal injury, insurance claims, family law, probate, estate planning and bankruptcy issues.  I handle the personal injury matters and travel throughout the State of Arizona to provide consultation and advice on cases involving significant injuries or loss of life.

Amazing Attorney & Fantastic Human
I was involved in an auto accident. I was getting the run-around from the insurance of the man who hit me. We found Mr Richter by pure luck and instantly made a new friend. He contacted us immediately and we felt right at home when we met with him. He is very personal and friendly, but is also a get-it-done attorney. He and Kim were very easy to work with and they did not put up with the foolishness from the insurance. We appreciate their diligence to bring our case to a resolution! Thank you! We would not hesitate to use their services again and highly recommend!

Excellent Attorney
October 2017, we were rear ended which forced us into the vehicle in front of us. After trying to deal with their insurance and ours, our son's father-in-law referred us to Clark Richter. Mr. Richter was professional, kind and understanding. He handled our daughters, my wife's and mine. He handled all the billings, dealt with their insurance company and ours, and was able to give us the help we needed. His legal assistant, Kim was excellent. She was always willing to work and talk with us so we understood what was going on. We didn't have to deal with anyone else except Mr. Richter or Kim. Awesome team work! We greatly appreciate all the hard work they did in our behalf. We definitely would use them again.

Excellent Service & Time Frame
I got into an auto accident and was given Clark Richter's information. I have never worked with a lawyer before, he made this experience the most smooth and informed process. Highly exceeded my expectations of the process, communication, availability and time frame from beginning to the end of the settlement. He helped me understand the wording and terms that I hadn't heard before. I recommend Clark Richter to anyone that is needing legal protection. On top of this he is a very kind and personable gentleman. Kim his legal assistant was very helpful with the documents and emailing communication. Excellent team!

Personal Injury Claim
I was involved in an automobile accident back in May of 2015. I obtained a referral from my employer and was very fortunate to speak with Clark Richter. After speaking with him about my case, I felt confident in hiring him to represent my husband, son and I. My Injury claim turned out to be far more complex than originally thought but Clark was beyond supportive and never gave up. He fought really hard for me due to the injuries I sustained from the accident. Even though we had several obstacles to overcome, Clark did an amazing job representing me and I will forever be grateful.

Great work
I consulted Mr. Clark regarding an accident insurance claim being made against my daughter and myself. My daughter accidentally hit a bicyclist and because she was insured on my policy, the other party attorney wanted to know of my assets. Mr. Clark got all the information he needed from me and wrote a declaration form which was accepted by their attorney which helped me immensely. I would definitely counsel Mr. Clark if I ever need him again.
