Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (“MWL”) is pleased to announce that Isaiah Richie has joined our insurance litigation team as an associate attorney in our Wisconsin office. Isaiah is licensed to practice in Colorado and Wisconsin. Formerly a clerk at the Colorado Court of Appeals and the Arizona Court of Appeals, Isaiah brings with him the precise blend of multi-state experience which is the hallmark of MWL’s 50-state insurance litigation program.
Isaiah attended both Liberty University School of Law and Arizona State Law School, graduating magna cum laude from the latter in 2015. Immediately out of law school, Isaiah spent one year apiece clerking for the Honorable John Gemmill at the Arizona Court of Appeals and Judge Laurie Booras at the Colorado Court of Appeals. He also spent a summer working for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office prosecuting misdemeanors.
Isaiah will focus on insurance litigation, especially nationwide insurance subrogation involving health insurance, Medicare Advantage plans, workers’ compensation, automobile insurance, and property and casualty. Isaiah was raised in rural West Virginia, and is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping. A fan of all professional and collegiate sports, he undertakes any athletic endeavor he can attempt. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, whether traveling, camping, playing music, or simply staying in. His family has traveled all across the country for school and work, and they are excited to finally settle down and plant some roots in Wisconsin.
Isaiah looks forward to joining the roster of attorneys presenting insurance CE-approved webinars to thousands of clients and friends of MWL. He brings his experience to bear on a growing need in subrogation matters handled throughout North America, but remains humble about the never-ending process of learning and growth. “I enjoy a challenge,” Isaiah says. His vast appellate court experience has led to a keen understanding of the fact that the power of the lawyer is the uncertainty in the law. He is anxious to help that uncertainty work in favor of MWL’s clients.
On behalf of the partners, associates, legal assistants, and support staff here at MWL, we would like to welcome Isaiah and his family to Wisconsin, and welcome Isaiah to our firm. We would also invite our clients and friends to introduce themselves to Isaiah. Isaiah can be reached at [email protected].
