If you’re driving too fast!
Attorney Cephus Richard, III, owns a Dallas, Texas law firm specializing in personal injury, criminal defense, and sports law. Attorney Richard is licensed to practice law in Arkansas, Missouri, and Texas and is also a Certified NFL Contract Advisor. Attorney Richard is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and remains a board member of the Northwest Arkansas Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Council, where they primarily award scholarships to deserving high school and college students who share Dr. King’s spirit of community building.
As a young man, Cephus had big plans to serve as president of the United States. With an election lost, he re-focused his energy on obtaining the legal degree he was studying to achieve. Finding his passion as a trial attorney who enjoys mixing in a bit of hip-hop, Cephus is now representing residents in three states.
