    I represent injured employees.

    32 years

I represent employees who have been injured on the job.  As a former R.N., I understand the issues that injured people have and I lend both legal expertise and compassion to your case.


The Workers' Compensation system is full of traps for the unwary.  The employer and insurance company has someone on their you?


As a legal expert, I provide high quality personal service to my clients.

I highly recommend Jan Richmond
When I was at the end of my rope with the workers comp conglomerate and their confusing paperwork, Jan came to my rescue. She helped the little guy fight the giant machine! She is very knowledgable especially with her background. She found me an awesome doctor and really cares about you and your situation. She took care of everything. I couldn't have gone through this without her.

Great Attorney
Jan is the best. She guided me through the exasperating workers comp experience and made sure my employer did what they were supposed to. She negotiated a fair settlement, and answered every question. I highly recommend her to anyone who is hurt on the job.

Choosing a reliable WC attorney
I sustained an injury at work and filed for workers' compensation. Soon I realized I need an attorney to help me through the complicated and confusing maze of workers' compensation laws. I was fortunate enough to hire Janet Richmond to assist me and am grateful to her for the excellent job she did. She carefully explained the many pertinent laws and answered all of my questions. Also, I believe her background as a nurse gave her a greater understanding of my medical problems. Each time I called her I was given personal attention and she never failed to return my calls. AT the end of my case she negotiated a fair settlement, explaining the entire process to me. I was completely satisfied with the results obtained. I have nothing but high praise for Ms. Richmond's expertise and compassionate treatment towards me. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone with a workers' compensation injury.
