Rich was raised in rural Nebraska. His grandparents were farmers and he worked summers on the farm. His parents valued education and instilled this value in Rich early in life, along with a healthy work ethic. He entered Northwestern University as a pre-med student, but quickly learned his interests were in history and political science. Law school was a natural transition to the working world.
He started practice in downtown Chicago with a law firm that traced its origins to the Chicago fire. One of his memorable cases was working with Paul Harvey on the first libel case ever filed against him. He and his wife relocated to Colorado where he joined a 17th Street firm in downtown Denver. His wife then entered ordained ministry which took him and his family to the eastern plains of Colorado. The family later relocated to Longmont where his firm and practice are today.
We learn from history as we plan for the future. I work to help my clients do both.
