About the Firm

A Texas Law Firm You Can Count On

At Richards T Penn, LLP, we take pride in taking care of our clients. We are a client-centered firm. Ricky and Jill truly believe that when you or a loved one are hurt in an accident or a wreck or injured by a defective product, you deserve to be "made whole" – or as made whole as one can be after tragedy.

We recognize that what you are dealing with is one of the worst things, if not the worst thing, to ever happen to you. In their many years of experience, Ricky and Jill have watched first-hand as the insurance industry attempts to cheat injured victims out of full compensation, even when the person at fault admits that he or she caused the accident. On behalf of their clients, Ricky and Jill have had to sue major trucking companies, the most popular "big box" store you know, concrete companies, contractors, doctors, hospitals, oil and gas companies, and drivers and insurance companies.

Ricky and Jill have basically seen it all and know how to protect their clients from predatory insurance practices. We believe that every person who comes to us deserves the highest standard of service and representation, and we appreciate it when individuals, families and businesses trust us with their concerns.

The roots of our law firm stretch all the way back to the late 1890s. We have vast experience in a wide range of practice areas, including personal injury, family law, criminal defense, civil and commercial litigation and much more. In addition, two district judges in the Second Judicial District Court of Cherokee County were former attorneys at one of our predecessor law firms.

By the time we finish with your case, our clients know that we have invested our full attention, energy, and resources and they have received the best outcome possible in light of their tragedy.
