We Help Families Thrive Through Difficult Times Every Day

Jennifer-Richardson

Jennifer Richardson

Attorney Jennifer Richardson approaches family law in a unique way by taking a solutions-first, court-last approach. Well-respected in the legal community, she has received numerous accolades for her work in family law. As a former tax accountant, she provides clients with a full-range, cost benefits analysis to help them get the most from her services. She is also a divorced parent who truly understands what her clients are going through.

She works closely with you to help achieve your big picture goals in a positive and amicable way—always making your children her top priority. But she is no stranger to the courtroom and is a fierce advocate when negotiations fail.

The parent of a child with Autism, Ms. Richardson understands the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) meeting process and provides consultations to parents trying to navigate the system.

Ms. Richardson and her family live in Anna and attend church at Victory Life in Sherman.
