  • Natalie Lynn Durflinger

    I endorse this lawyer. I attended law school with Mr. Richter. I remember one occasion early in law school when a particularly hard professor was grilling us, Mr. Richter volunteered to be grilled while the rest of us ducked for cover. I was impressed not only by his intelligence and his fearlessness, but by his willingness to tackle any challenge. These qualities, among others are what make Mr. Richter an exceptional trial attorney.
