Gary L. Richardson
A Renowned Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyer
Founding Attorney Gary L. Richardson has earned his reputation as one of the most prominent and accomplished lawyers in the Southwest region, and his firm is correspondingly sought after by many clients in the region. Gary founded Richardson Richardson Boudreaux PLLC, originally The Richardson Law Firm, to give injury victims the powerful voice they need when battling insurance companies and other deep-pocketed corporations. Representing clients throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and other surrounding states, Gary has successfully recovered a number of record-setting jury verdicts.
Gary's record of success includes a jury verdict of $58M for an individual in a defamation case, the largest of its kind. He has also recorded the highest-known recovery in a farm implement case at $10.2M. Gary recently partnered with his son, Chuck, to successfully achieve a $6.4M verdict which was not only the largest wrongful death recovery, but also the largest verdict for an Oklahoma prison inmate.
A Reputation for Success
Gary's talent and reputation for multi-million dollar recoveries can be attributed to his expertise, as he has the ability to communicate with the jury in a persuasive, convincing, and highly effective manner. He believe his success is, in part, a product of the lessons he has learned through a multitude of experiences.
These experiences have served as inspiration for three books Gary has had published:
- Fear is Never Your Friend,
- Black Robe Fever,
- Thank God They Ate the Apple,
- Winning in the Courtroom. (a motivational audio series)
Background & Professional Experience
Gary received his undergraduate degree from Southern Nazarene University in 1983, where he earned the distinction of Outstanding Graduate, as well as the prestigious Green Bag award for achieving the highest grades in his class. After graduating, he worked as an insurance adjuster for Allstate by day, while attending law school at Oklahoma City University by night – all while starting a family.
