About Richard A. Clem

I believe that the relationship between a client and an attorney is built upon mutual respect, trust and honesty. Through my vast understanding of the law, I seek to find the best outcome possible for the clients and families I serve. I provide quality representation at a fair price.  


As a private practice attorney for the past 30 years, I have come to understand the complexities of families and that creating a stable future for all parties involved is the ultimate goal when working for you and your needs. While pursuing justice and solutions to family issues can be stressful, I always seek to help clients move forward and create the best life possible after changes to their family structure.
