For 30 years now, Mark D. Richards has focused on providing quality representation in the area of law that affects individuals the most-criminal defense. Criminal defense is a specialized area and requires someone with the experience, knowledge, and know-how to provide the best possible representation. When a person’s liberty is at stake, the stakes can be no greater. That is why the cornerstone of all clients’ representation is a thorough investigation both factually and legally of all defenses so that no potential defenses are left unexplored or unlitigated. This “leave no stone unturned” type of representation has led to numerous successful outcomes for my clients. In the past twenty years I have represented clients in both State and Federal courts charged with a variety of crimes ranging from First Degree Homicide, drug conspiracies, Vehicular homicide, Sexual Assault and Child Pornography. No case is too big or too small. I have also tried over 100 jury trials, ranging from simple two day Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) trials to month long Homicide trials. If you or someone you know has potential criminal exposure, do not hesitate to call or email for a free consultation. The sooner representation is secured the sooner your rights are protected. Do not wait to be charged, many positive results can be secured before a client is actually charged with a crime.

I have been a criminal defense attorney since graduating from the Marquette University Law School in May of 2009. I began my practice in Appleton, where I took both private and public defender criminal cases and represented my clients from pre-charging to jury trial and post-conviction stages. I have successfully resolved cases through smart motion-filing practice, diligent investigation, plea negotiations, and, jury trial contests.
In 2012, I moved to Racine, Wisconsin and joined Attorney Richards to continue my criminal defense practice. I continue to provide great results through strong motion practice, litigation, and persuasive arguments in the courtroom. Additionally, I take pride in benefiting my clients beyond simply fighting in the courtroom. I work to provide them with an understanding of the process, a fair assessment of their options, and the ability to pursue their goals in resolving a case. Criminal cases threaten one's employment, ability to provide and care for family, and even personal property. I keep these things in mind when representing my clients and pursuing their goals.
Outside of my practice of law, I enjoy spending time at my cottage in the Northwoods, where I fish, hunt, and enjoy time with family and friends nearly year-round. Here in Racine, I am probably outside running or in the gym, taking in a movie, or enjoying a meal out with friends and family. I love collecting vinyl records and love a good concert. Above all else, my daughter means the world to me.
I am proud to be a partner here at Richards & Dimmer, S.C.

My passion for helping others developed when I was a child, and as an adult, I have spent a great deal of my personal and professional time trying to improve the lives of others. In law school, I focused my education on criminal defense, appellate practice, and oral advocacy; and since joining the Richards & Dimmer team, I have dedicated my practice exclusively to providing passionate and effective criminal defense representation in a supportive environment. The legal system is confusing and many individuals facing criminal charges do not fully understand its complexities, despite potential losses of civil liberties and personal freedoms. Criminal cases can affect a person’s educational and employment opportunities, family life, voting rights, and ability to possess property. Every client has their own goals for the resolution of each case, and you can be confident that I will do everything in my power to preserve your rights while pursing your desired outcome. I consider myself very adaptable, and am very deliberate with the steps I take in every case. This, combined with my level-headed negotiation skills, has allowed me to leverage favorable settlements for my clients in all types of cases. And if a case cannot be settled, I will thoroughly and insistently represent your best interests at trial. Outside of the legal setting, I like to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends. In my free time I enjoy singing, playing bar trivia, cross-stitching, listening to music, playing cards, reading, and taking naps with my cats.
