DIVORCE

Johnson & Ritchey has a large network of professionals that it can refer clients to, when necessary, ranging from financial experts to mental health professionals. The attorneys at Johnson & Ritchey make sure they always have a manageable case load so that they can focus their attention on every client and file, with a focus on quality representation, not quantity. The attorneys make themselves available to listen and consult during the case regarding any issue. During a divorce, no issue or detail should be too small for your attorney's ear.

PATERNITY

Johnson & Ritchey focuses on the parent's concerns and guides them throughout the litigation process.
