Richard Byers

Emphasizing Worker's Compensation as well as Will and Trust creation, come meet Chris and I to get to know a couple guys who care about what they do.

With a double concentration in marketing, and communication and media methods from Gonzaga University, Rich went on to get his Juris Doctor, also from Gonzaga, in 2010. A member of the Spokane County and Washington State Bar Associations, as well as the SCBA Solo and Small Practitioners Section, Rich is active in the Spokane Community

After helping lower income families with pro-bono representation at the Federal Tax Clinic at Gonzaga, Rich spent two years with the law firm of Stiley & Cikutovich before deciding to partner up with Chris Carlisle, realizing that the Spokane market was underserved by attorneys who value community connection and personal service in the legal industry.

Although his professional life has often taken priority, don’t be surprised to see him playing a role as the 12th man at Century Link Field, or charging a wave through the Alberton Gorge.
