  • Mr. Richards' current practice includes the defense of construction companies and oil and gas companies but focuses primarily on the defense of trucking companies and their insurance carriers. He is actively involved in handling first response investigations (i.e., "legal triage") for the numerous motor carriers he represents. He is one of the youngest members of the New Mexico Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, an organization that requires a minimum of 20 civil jury trials tried to conclusion for admission, and is a past Chapter President and current Treasurer. In 2009 he served as Chairman of the New Mexico State Bar Trial Practice Section. Mr. Richards has tried more than 30 jury trials to conclusion for major insurance and trucking companies. His last three civil jury trials involved claims for wrongful death, severe brain injury and amputation of a limb. These trials resulted in two defense verdicts and a minimal settlement during jury deliberations. He is a former Assistant District Attorney, 9th New Mexico Judicial District (1996-1998) where he prosecuted 16 jury trials.
