In Memoriam (1942-2016):

Richard Ogle attributed much of his successful legal career to a work ethic he developed as a teenager growing up in Birmingham. He came from a family of modest means, so Richard often held one or more part-time jobs to supplement the family’s income. “While I may not always be the brightest light on the porch, I can outwork almost anyone,” Richard said

Self-deprecating humor aside, Richard’s hard work served him well as primary counsel in a number of high-profile and first impression cases in the areas of fraudulent conveyance, third-party insurance bad faith and professional “divorces.” One of his proudest achievements was being elected president of the Birmingham Bar Association in 1990. He said that he enjoyed practicing law at Christian & Small because the firm values positive client outcomes above all else.
