Nancy Richter

Nancy Richter, 1952-2021

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of an exceptional partner, attorney, wife, mother, grandmother and personal mentor to scores of individuals over decades whose lives have been improved by their relationship with Ms. Nancy Richter. Words cannot express the sorrow and sense of loss we feel. But one thing we have learned in our years working shoulder to shoulder is her indomitable spirit of no quit, upwards and onwards attitude and behavior to embrace life and carry-on. Rest with angels my dear friend and partner.
