In what seems like a lifetime ago, Razumich Law opened its doors on December 1, 2006. Over the past thirteen years, we’ve helped well over a thousand people navigate the legal system and protect their futures and their freedom from being trampled by the state, and we’re just getting started! It’s been a wild ride. We’ve seen team members come and go, we published a book, we reworked and reconfigured multiple times in order to provide you with the best possible service and representation that we could, and we NEVER, STOPPED, FIGHTING, EVER.
