About Richie, Richie & Oberle, L.L.P.

A Family Firm Serving Northwest Louisiana Since 1951

Our family has been practicing law in northwest Louisiana since 1951, back when John A. Richie first opened up a general law practice in Cedar Grove to handle everything from criminal defense to real estate law. His guiding principle at the time still guides our law practice today: Never tell a client what he wants to hear, tell him what he needs to hear.

Client-Centered Principles

Over the years, Richie, Richie & Oberle, L.L.P. has maintained a family feel and general practice while developing more specific areas of focus. These include estate planning, insurance defense, personal injury law, business law, and oil and gas law. The firm’s partners include John A. Richie’s two sons, C. Vernon Richie and Byron A. Richie, and Paul D. Oberle, Jr.

Over the decades, our firm has built a reputation for trustworthy legal counsel, and many of our clients come to us through word of mouth. Whether we are helping you plan your estate, expand your family business, or seek compensation from a car accident, you can count on us to manage each case we take with efficiency and with integrity.
