Ritchey & Ritchey, one of the oldest law firms in Birmingham as well as Alabama, was founded in 1959 on a simple premise: provide clients with the guidance and expertise of a large law firm but with the service and value of a small law firm. Now, more than 50 years later, this founding principle continues to move us forward as we provide legal services and solutions to businesses and individuals in Birmingham and throughout Alabama.
Our firm’s partners ― Albert E. Ritchey, Gregory S. Ritchey, and Ferris S. Ritchey III— bring a wealth of legal experience and skill to our practice. We have built a solid reputation, winning the respect of both our clients and peers.
Our attorneys, similar to higher dollar law firms, are not only AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® — a distinction signifying the highest quality legal work, professionalism and ethical standards — but also have the experience necessary to be competitively different. Our attorneys have been recognized as Birmingham’s “Top Lawyers” in B-Metro: The Magazine of Metro Birmingham Living, and Gregory S. Ritchey has been named a “Top Rated Lawyer” in Construction Law by American Lawyer Media, a publisher of national and regional magazines, as well as newspapers.
Our construction, insurance defense, amusement/trampoline park defense, family law, estate planning, probate, mediation and employment lawyers take great pride in providing the personal focus of a small multi-service law firm with the abundant knowledge and capability found in larger firms. Our success is based on our attorneys’ ability to efficiently work toward achieving results while staffing matters appropriately. Not every case needs multiple partners, associates and paralegals working the file on a daily basis. While more complex matters may require such staffing considerations, we believe the majority of cases do not.
To further enhance the value we provide to our clients, Ritchey & Ritchey has incorporated the latest legal technologies into our practice. These advancements include paperless procedures which allow us to spend less time dealing with processes and administrative work and more time focusing on your case. Streamlining case management equates to providing more value to our clients by reducing unnecessary hours. The end result is that we can accomplish your legal goals in a more efficient, effective and affordable manner.
Both Gregory S. Ritchey and Ferris S. Ritchey III are trained mediators with Gregory having additional training in arbitration and Ferris having additional training in collaborative law. At Ritchey & Ritchey our lawyers strive for the best legal results for our clients whether we are providing advisory, negotiation, mediation, arbitration or collaborative services or litigation in state, federal, appellate or municipal courts.
Through the course of our more than 50 years in business, the attorneys at Ritchey & Ritchey have enjoyed the privilege of representing clients in a wide range of practice areas, including:
Ritchey & Ritchey continues a proud history of representing individuals and businesses throughout Alabama including the cities of Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, Mobile and Tuscaloosa.
