The Most Important Thing is to Define Your Goals

What is most important to you when going through a military divorce?


“One of the first things I ask when interviewing a prospective client about to enter into a military divorce is 'what is the most important thing for you in this divorce case?'  The two answers that seem to always be at the top of the list are, 'the military retirement and my children.’”


Once we determine your objective, let me handle the rest. Whether it's the military retirement or maximizing the time you spend with your kids, I have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your desired outcome.


Mr. Richter handled his first military divorce case in 1995 and soon began to realize how few attorneys really understand the complexities involved in handling a military divorce.  In 2013, Mr. Richter was chosen to lead the military divorce portion of a seminar for attorneys entitled Advanced Family Law sponsored by the prestigious National Business Institute. Since that time, he has conducted a number of seminars for practicing attorneys on the issues involved in handling military divorces.


Mr. Richter is the past president of the Solo/Small Firm section of the Memphis Bar Association.  While in law school, he served on the Moot Court Board and was given the award for the best legal brief.  He has handled a number of appellate court cases including one to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  He is licensed to practice before all courts in the state of Tennessee as well as the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Richter formed Richter Family Law Group, P.C. as a way to expand his practice throughout the entire state of Tennessee.
