Richard graduated with honours at the University of Western Ontario in 1998, and went on to graduate from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2002. While attending Osgoode, Richard was a founding member of the Small Claims Court Information Clinic and assisted the public with court forms and procedure. In his final year of law school, Richard attended the Monash Law School in Melbourne Australia, where he volunteered twice a week at the Springvale Legal Clinic and provided legal services to low-income clients in disadvantaged communities.

After articling for a boutique real estate law firm, Richard joined Levitt, Lightman, Dewar & Graham LLP in December 2003. Richard's areas of practice include wills and estates, commercial and residential real estate law, and corporate law.

Recently, Richard has been invited to lecture on the topic of wills and estates by major financial institutions in the Etobicoke area and by community organizations located in the Etobicoke, Mississauga and Mimico neighbourhoods.

Richard has also lectured in the area of corporate law at the Toronto Business Development Centre to participants enrolled in the Ontario Self-Employment Benefit Program.

Richard is a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the Ontario Bar Association, the Law Society of Upper Canada and is a past director of Etobicoke Services for Seniors.
