Bland Richter’s mission is to provide our clients with tenacious, single-minded, principled and timely representation with results that count. The central philosophy is simple - we fight hard for our clients and we fight within the rules. We believe in being honest and providing candor to the Court and recognize that we cannot effectively represent any client if we do not maintain credibility and integrity in the eyes of the court. Our hard-charging style may occasionally offend the opposition, but we rarely receive complaints from our clients. An attorney for an adverse party once described litigating against Bland Richter as like "being in Fallujah every day at the start of the Iraq war." The bottom line is: we fight hard for our clients, very hard, but always between the lines.
