Why you need us.


Passion. Experience. Creativity.



Trudy Innes Richardson, PLLC opened its doors in 2018. In creating this firm, Ms. Innes Richardson took 17 years of legal experience and combined it with her prior ventures in business.  What resulted is a lean, almost paperless firm that uses technology to be available and accessible to clients, wherever located.  As a small business owner, Ms. Innes Richardson understands budgets, time constraints and results-oriented thinking.  

Over the past 15 years, Ms. Innes Richardson has worked with two mid-sized boutique law firms with some of the finest attorneys in Florida.  Her experience as a shareholder at both firms gives her keen insight into client relations, overhead and creating solutions that work for each client.
