In the two-and-a-half years that Isaiah Richie has worked as an attorney at Schloemer Law Firm, he has become an asset not only to the company but also the public.
Richie specializes in estate planning, business, property, municipal and guardianship law. He also serves on the boards of a local pregnancy crisis center, a downtown business revitalization organization and the Washington County Economic Development Corp.
“Professionally, Isaiah has grown over the past two years by expanding his practice areas from estate planning and transactional work to now include municipal law, property law, guardianship law and an increasing interest in appellate practice,” said James Danaher, a partner at Schloemer. “His brief writing, understanding of complex legal principles and application of those principles to the facts in a case is very strong and reflects his time as a judicial clerk at two state appellate courts.”
Richie takes a tailored approach to help each client meet specific goals.
“Even if you have done 100 routine estate plans, there will probably be some deviation or unique aspect in 95 of them,” he said. “The work that I enjoy most are those projects that involve pure questions of law, such as appellate work or motions writing.”
Richie said that the pandemic has made little difference in his work, since he has always been required to appear in person to execute documents that couldn’t be witnessed remotely.
“While we did change over some of our initial consultations to telephone or Zoom, we have kept our doors opened and have taken all the precautions necessary to offer our clients all of the services they require,” he said.
Outside of work, Richie enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, as well as outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking and hunting.
