Ronnie Richter and Eric Bland started trying cases together in 1997 and subsequently established Bland Richter LLP with offices in both Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina. Bland Richter is a boutique litigation firm which specializes in taking complex cases and high-risk cases that other firms either can’t handle or won’t handle. 

Bland Richter’s practice areas are concentrated in legal and professional malpractice. Partners, Ronnie Richter and Eric Bland, have nearly 50 years of combined legal experience. Both Mr. Richter and Mr. Bland successfully completed national board testing in legal malpractice and received recognition as diplomats in the field of Legal Malpractice by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys. In addition, Bland Richter prosecutes other forms of professional malpractice, including accounting malpractice, and frequently litigates complex commercial, transactional and business disputes. 

Bland Richter serves the entire State of South Carolina and beyond. In addition to its members being admitted to practice law in South Carolina, Mr. Bland is also a member of the Pennsylvania and Florida bars. Bland Richter is available for association anywhere in the Country where its services may be necessary. Both Mr. Bland and Mr. Richter are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This organization has as its members some of the top trial lawyers in America and only admits attorneys who have obtained verdicts for their clients in excess of $2,000,000.00.

Bland Richter’s mission is to provide our clients with tenacious, single-minded, principled and timely representation with results that count. Our central philosophy is simple - we fight hard for our clients and we fight within the rules. We believe in being honest and providing candor to the Court and recognize that we cannot effectively represent any client if we do not maintain credibility and integrity in the eyes of the court. Our hard-charging style may occasionally offend the opposition, but we rarely receive complaints from our clients. An attorney for an adverse party once described litigating against Bland Richter as like "being in Fallujah every day at the start of the Iraq war."  The bottom line: we fight hard for our clients, very hard, but always between the lines.
