We proudly offer our clients a unique combination of classic values and creative approaches that help usher each situation toward resolution.

Classic Values
We are dedicated to establishing and maintaining client relationships and client trust, built upon the classic values of fair play and fair value by providing the highest level of professional integrity and quality of work.

Creative Approaches
We recognize that while many legal issues have simple and traditional paths toward resolution, other issues require imaginative, “outside-the-box” thinking. We work with our clients to develop a strategy that will best meet their legal challenges in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Recognized Industry Leaders
While we provide legal counsel on a variety of topics, Richardson|Ober is a recognized industry leader in several fields, including:

  • Real Estate Law
    Our firm has worked with brokers, developers and commercial property owners on cases pertaining to construction defect, breach of contract, common interest development (CID) and more. Our attorneys are regularly invited to contribute articles to major publications, speak at industry events and provide general counsel to industry real estate brokerages and organizations.


  • Homeowner Association (HOA) Law
    A leader in the field of HOA law, Richardson|Ober co-founder and Senior Partner Kelly G. Richardson is the author of the California Association of Realtors® Common Interest Development (CID) Basic Information Guide, and authors a syndicated weekly column on the topic of Homeowners Association law titled “HOA Homefront.” Recently, the firm launched the successful ROcollect program, which utilizes a judicial foreclosure approach in combination with a cutting-edge website that allows clients to monitor the progress of their collections matters in real time.

The Richardson|Ober Philosophy
The attorney-client relationship is one that is time-honored and sacred. We recognize that each client, whether an individual or a large corporation, places the highest trust and confidence in us. In return, we make a commitment to act only in our clients’ best interests. With each client, our goal is to develop a long and successful relationship. Regardless of the size of the case or the complexity of the task involved, the quality of service we provide will not vary.

Integrity, industry, ingenuity and active involvement are hallmarks of our approach to the practice of law. We recognize that truly effective representation requires a thorough understanding of the client’s particular needs, as well as a broader view of the client’s circumstances. A thorough working knowledge of the law is only the beginning of what our attorneys provide, as the Firm strives to address not only what our clients can do, but also what they should do in any given legal situation.

For highly targeted and personalized legal representation you can believe in, Richardson|Ober is the clear choice.
