  4. Divorce and separation
    10%
    I have been working in Family Law for 30+ years. Laws have changed to meet new social norms or family structures. However, what has not changed is that people need good information to make good decisions. I make sure you get the information you need.

  8. Uncontested divorce
    10%
    Divorce can be really hard on people, their families, and even their friends. Ultimately, there are two way to reach a divorce: people agree on terms or a judge tells them how it it going to be. Often, I can help to make the process Uncontested.

  9. Medical malpractice
    5%
    Malpractice involves serious acts of negligence. Attorneys need to understand the rules, costs, timelines, and the risks. Do not just call and hire some firm. If the firm really wants to help, they will have an ATTORNEY meet with you in- person.

I have been in practice since 1991.  The overwhelming majority of new clients are referred to me by my former clients.  I have worked in the areas of Conflict Resolution, Personal Injury, Family Law, Criminal Defense, Mediations, Collaborative Law, and other trial or civil litigation work.

I am a well-trained and experience Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer working to help individuals resolve their dispute without going to court.  For more information about mediation or collaborative law go to . 

I encourage straight talk and honest assessments.  I do not work with people who will not put their children first. I believe every person is entitled to understand the law and their options, and I believe that with honest hard work all things all possible.

I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association, Pierce County Collaborative Practice, Washington Collaborative Practice, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and the Washington State Society for Justice.  I am active in the community in which my family resides.  I am blessed to have a wonderful blended family and five children with whom I try to stay very active in their lives in addition to working in a very high paced and positive law practice. 

All emails are returned as soon as possible.  I encourage you to send me a message.

Kevin is an amazing lawyer. Very compassionate and understanding. Going through a divorce is an extremely stressful situation to begin with and he helped alleviate some of that stress by listening to my concerns as well as explaining exactly what will happen. After the divorce he has still been accessible and responsive to any questions or concerns! Highly recommend!

Reliable
I worked with Kevin and Karina on my case and they were very attentive and prompt on getting me quick results in a timely manner. The urgency they took regarding the welfare of the children involved lead to a speedy turn around and keeping the children safe. I felt they understood my family's needs and were companionate in every aspect.

I was a client
I sought Mr. Richardson for help in a Child custody case. I had been fighting by myself for a long time Against my X husbands attorney. Who was very unethical. And I had finely got the case to trial. And asked Mr. Richardson to help. And he wasn’t on the case for long. But he was able to get a good result for the children. And that is what he said he was after. And that is what stuck out to me about him. He was concerned about the important things. I had read that he was discipline from the state. I cannot see why that would happen. And considering the other attorney in this case if it had anything to do with the my case It will really piss me off!

Great Family Law Attorney
I have had Kevin Richardson represent me in 2 previous cases with positive results. Kevin is currently representing me in my divorce. He is informative, personable and professional. I have found him to be always prepared and able to address my questions and concerns. He clearly conveys his knowledge of legal proceedings in a way I can understand. I have and will continue to refer him to friends and family.

excellent work
Kevin's performance during my legal issues was awsome, his knowledge of the system along with his skills as a speaker were paramount in the reduction of my sentance which was ultimately dismissed, with my full compliance of the courrts directives. I would reccomend him to anyone that's in need of quality legal counsel at a fair price.

Currently respresenting me with my insurance company
I experienced a rollover accident that is going into mediation soon. I first went to Kevin through a friend who I worked with at McChord AFB. I went to his office in Puyallup and liked him from the get go. He is very personable, very approachable and treats you as if he has known you for years. Most lawyers I perceive as a bit arrogant but not Kevin. He has always represented me first in an issue pertaining to threatening neighbors to now representing me in the rollover accident. He is knowledgeable in his field and has always been upfront with me in stating the facts as to what can happen if I decide this way or if I decide the other way. Not agenda driven in my decision making, he just wants to do what is best for me long term. He is professional in his field and I consider someone I can trust which I do not trust anyone let alone an attorney. I would highly recommend Kevin Richardson to my friends and family or to anyone looking for reliable representation.

Kevin did a great job helping me navigate a bad situation, and gave me many options to consider. I'm very glad I had him on my side.

Kevin Richardson is the Best Attorney Out There!
The legal system is not the way it is depicted on TV. It is a slow, grinding, delicate puzzle which requires unflagging patience and a huge knowledge base to get to the end of the process. Kevin possesses all the right skills. Kevin Richardson has been my personal attorney since 1999. Kevin has handled both family and civil issues for me and has seen me through the most difficult decisions I've ever had to make.. He is an expert mediator. Kevin always explains why something should be done (or not done) in terms I can understand. He encouraged me when I needed it, and has helped me navigate the legal system on my own. His advice has never been wrong for me. Kevin has handled child custody, auto accident and divorce cases for me. I am always happy with the outcome when Kevin takes the case. If you are seeking a mediator or family law/injury attorney, Kevin is your man, hands-down.

Long time lawyer
I have worked with Kevin over the last thirteen years with three different cases. I have followed him through the different firms hes been with and I will continue to do so. He has always been very kind and helpful even as far as going out of his way to meet me and been extremely understanding of my circumstances. I have recommended him to my friends and family when in need of a family law lawyer.

I recommend Kevin with Full Confidence
Kevin was referred to me by a friend who had hire him years ago. When I called him, I didnt know he would help because I didn't have a lot of money to spend on legal fees. When we met I immediately knew he wasnt like what I expected from an attorney. He really understood my situation, he was able to tell me about the law, and gave me an action plan that made sense. He also didn't seem to just want my money but really wanted to help. My case is over with an excellent result. I don't know what else to say. He is an attorney that gives his profession a good name and I am really glad I gave him a call. Awesome Attorney!

Best Lawyer Ever.
From the first phone call Kevin was wonderful. He listens to what is going on and really helps make the legal process so much easier. I was on my way to hire him before the day was over. He is very considerate. And very knowledgeable. I even recomended him to my family. I would say Kevin Richardson is a 15+ on a scale from 1-10 he completely blows that away. GREAT LAWYER! !!!!!!! No question about that. I will keep him around as I know I will continue to need his legal services.

A lawyer you can trust!
Kevin has been my lawyer for the past four years during a lengthy court case. Rarely does one hear the words "trustworthy" and "personable" to describe a lawyer, but Kevin has been both trustworthy and personable, going above and beyond for me as a client. Most importantly, my court issues have been resolved, thanks to Kevin! I have a tremendous amount of respect for Kevin Richardson... He treats his clients as people, not a case number. I am grateful to have had the the opportunity to work with Mr. Richardson, and always recommend him whenever possible!

Friendly
FINALLY!!! It has been 5 years since my accident and it is finally coming to a close... This morning(sept.28) was the arbitration hearing, which has been a loonnngggg time coming. I am soo happy that my lawyer Kevin Richardson has been such a great lawyer and helped me through this long process, even when I wanted to give up. I know that no matter what the arbitrator sets the settlement at, it will not undo the damage that was caused, but it will at least help pay the bills that have been piling up

AVVO RATING 9.4 (Superb)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2013.

Reprimand issued in WA, 2013
updated on 01/16/2016

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Kevin's comment: “You can see the context of this reprimand at the WSBA website. The attorney is in good standing with the Washington State Bar Association and has been practicing law with excellent client reviews since 1991.”
