As a law firm specializing in areas of real estate, landlord-tenant relations, estate planning and more, Richmond & Richmond Ltd. of Port Orchard, Washington specialized in out-of-the-box thinking. “We are a community minded firm and a leading provider of affordable solutions for regular folks with needs and challenges, says owner, Karen Richmond. “We are willing to tackle cases that leave others scratching their heads.”

The challenges of COVID have been many for the firm, but most notably it has been the adverse effects visited on their clients. “We’ve seen the biggest impact on our clients as they have the same needs, but with limited ability to pay for help,” says Richmond. “Tenants and landlords are really struggling with rent payment, rent collection on other housing issues.”

With such challenges, Richmond & Richmond are stepping in to help. Excited to be a partner in Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project, Richmond & Richmond Ltd. Is providing free legal services to tenants in need, and Columbia Bank is helping to pay the bill. “We are passing it on to clients who don’t have the resources, but still have the need for legal services. With Columbia Bank’s assistance, we will be able to provide free and discounted services so that some clients can obtain the counsel they need.”
