Attorney Profile

Attorney Veronica L. Richardson is the founder and managing partner of Richardson Law LC in Atlanta, Georgia. A top-rated trial lawyer with more than 14 years of total legal experience, Ms. Richardson provides invaluable counsel and support to clients across her region who have suffered a debilitating injury on the job or as the result of an accident caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

Early in her legal career, Ms. Richardson worked as an insurance defense attorney, where she gained considerable insight into the industry and the tactics insurance providers use to deny workers' compensation claims and personal injury awards. Armed with this knowledge, she can devise the most effective strategy possible to help her plaintiff clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation they deserve, and she has secured substantial settlements and verdicts for those she has served.

Honored for her outstanding professionalism and service, Ms. Richardson has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from her peers along with many testimonials and referrals from her satisfied clients. A native of Atlanta, she has a genuine concern for the legal issues that affect the members of her community, and she finds great reward in being able to help so many during their times of dire need.

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, Ms. Richardson obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2006. While there, she established the Labor and Employment Law Association, and she served as the advocacy chair to the Black Law Students Association's Davenport-Benham Chapter. She was also a participant in moot court and mock trial competitions, winning Best Advocate at the Regional Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition and placing as semifinalist in the 2006 American Trial Lawyers Association Mock Trial Competition.

A leader in her field, Ms. Richardson currently serves on the adjunct legal faculty at the University of Georgia School of Law, and she regularly conducts lectures and continuing legal education seminars before various legal organizations across the nation devoted to workers' compensation law. She is also an active member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys and the Atlanta Bar Association, among her other professional affiliations.

Outside her legal practice, Ms. Richardson has served as co-chair to the Kids’ Chance Silent Auction fundraiser, and she is highly active with the University of Georgia School of Law’s mentorship program.
