Ms. Richards was raised in New Mexico and graduated from New Mexico State University with honors.  She then graduated from University of New Mexico School of Law where again she was an honors student and served on the Board of Regents.

After law school, Ms. Richards worked for the well known New Mexico plaintiff's firm of McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love located in downtown Albuquerque.  She worked closely with the senior partner of the firm, Randi McGinn, on numerous product's liability, employment, and personal injury cases.   Ms. Richards was so successful at McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, the Bernalillo District Attorney's Office hired her to their Felony Prosecution division.  There, she successfully prosecuted felony cases, including a notorious gang leader for first degree murder.  

While at the DA's office, an opportunity arose in San Francisco, and Ms. Richards moved there to practice with the preeminent plaintiff's class action firm of Furth, Fahrner & Mason, a twenty-attorney plaintiffs' class action firm in downtown San Francisco.  There, she worked on dozens of class actions, including Savaglio v. Wal-Mart Stores ($172 million verdict for plaintiffs); Salvas, et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Civ. Action No. 01-03645 (Superior Court of Massachusetts, Middlesex County) (trial pending). 

Notably, Ms. Richards, was the lead class certification attorney in Savaglio v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., a wage and hour class action that resulted in a $172 million dollar verdict for plaintiffs.   Ms. Richards was the lead counsel in the case through class certification and the chief architect of the expert models used by the plaintiffs to certify the case and eventually win the case at trial.  Ms. Richards conducted most of the discovery and personally logged thousands of hours in the case. She argued the class certification motion and successfully certified the class, defeating Wal-Mart's legion of attorneys and million dollar experts.  After certification, the managing partner at the firm commented that Ms. Richards was the best orator that the firm has ever employed in its over thirty year existence.

After leaving the firm, Ms. Richards moved to North Carolina and opened her own firm, The Richards Law Firm in downtown Raleigh.  She prosecutes a wide range of cases including employment discrimination and other plaintiff's cases. 

On a more personal level, Ms. Richards enjoys spending time with her family.  She still visits New Mexico often to see her family who live in the eastern part of the state.

In 2008, Mr. Furth and Ms. Richards opened Richards Furth PC to practice together in the State of New Mexico.
