About Morghan L. Richardson

Ms. Richardson's practice is focused on Divorce and Divorce Mediation. She is also experienced in litigation, family law issues that accompany Divorce, such as Child Support and Custody, Spousal Support and Marital Property issues, including asset discovery and protection. My philosophy is to approach each case from the perspective of the best interests of my clients. As the divorced parent of two young children, I know the difficult balance working parents deal with on a daily basis. Divorce only further complicates that balance and can have severe developmental consequences for children. Divorce Mediation may take some of the stress and pressure of Divorce off the children and allow the divorcing couple to re-shape their relationship with a focus on placing their kids' interests first.
