During law school, Mr. Richards was an editor of the John Marshall Journal of Computer & Information Law, a three-time Allen H. Schwartz Scholarship recipient, a recipient of the Ambassador of the Year Award, a faculty research assistant, and a writer for the law school’s newspaper. He additionally authored and published in numerous law reviews and other scholarly journals, including the John Marshall Law Review, the Santa Clara Law Review, the John Marshall Journal of Computer & Information Law, the Colorado Lawyer, and the National Law Journal.
After law school, Mr. Richards spent an additional year obtaining his LL.M. in health law, where he received the Kamensky & Rubenstein Scholarship and published his master’s thesis in the John Marshall Law Review. His law review article on res judicata was quoted extensively with approval by New York’s highest court, and cited in support of a dissenting opinion by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. He is the author, most recently, of an article relating to medical-based informed consent (forthcoming Northern Illinois University Law Review) and Florida’s Value Policy Law (forthcoming Florida Bar Journal).
Following his legal studies, Mr. Richards worked for EchoStar Communications Corporation, where he negotiated and drafted satellite communications contracts. He then served for two years as a Deputy District Attorney in the thirteenth judicial district of Colorado, prosecuting both misdemeanor and felony crimes. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Richards managed his own law practice in Colorado. He is presently licensed to practice before all Colorado state courts and in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.
Mr. Richards’ diverse background and experience has assisted in his transition into the firm’s pharmaceutical litigation department. There, Mr. Richards works primarily on Fen-Phen and Ephedra Litigation as well as class action cases involving Shell/Texaco Bad Gasoline Litigation, Ford Truck and SUV Defective Door Latch Litigation.
