Richard has been a partner at Schwebel Goetz & Sieben since 1991. He was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Richard graduated from William Mitchell College of Law in 1986, and the same year joined Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben. Today, he is recognized as a National and State Board Certified Civil Trial Specialist. In 1997, Richard also was appointed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to serve on the No-Fault Standing Committee.

Richard has represented and fought for thousands of clients in a variety of personal injury cases. His efforts have resulted in numerous multi-million dollar awards and settlements on behalf of his clients. Richard understands the problems that accident victims face, physically, emotionally and economically – and he works hard to ease those strains.

Richard has been given the rank of “Super Lawyer” by Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine every year since 1997. He has also been included as one of the “Top 40 Personal Injury Lawyers in Minnesota” by Minnesota Law & Politics since 2003 and in “The Best Lawyers in America” by Woodward/White from 2005 to the present.

He has been invited to speak at numerous seminars to train both plaintiff and defense attorneys on topics such as insurance coverage, no-fault law, settlement evaluations and trial tactics.

Richard takes a great deal of pride representing his clients, and service has always been the hallmark of his practice. He feels there is no greater compliment paid to a trial lawyer than to get a referral and be asked to represent someone in a time of need.

Richard’s practice is limited to cases involving serious injury and wrongful death.
