In May 2015, our co-founding partner and dear friend, Bradley Richards, passed away very suddenly.  Throughout his legal career, at Fragomen, Vedder Price, and most recently Richards Coleman Immigration Group LLC, Brad demonstrated not only outstanding skill but also a true passion for immigration law and above all, his clients.  He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, his friends, and his family.
