The Law Offices of Richard M. Bing, P.C. is a full-service law firm with offices in Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are a general practice firm with emphasis on Domestic Relations & Family Law, Personal Injury Law, Criminal & Traffic defense, Commercial & Business Law, Franchise Law, and Trials & Appeals. Our firm can handle all of your legal needs. Whether it be the representation in a traffic case, such as a speeding or reckless driving charge, the handling of a divorce, the representation of a personal injury claim, the formation of a corporation, partnership, or limited liability company (Mr. Bing serves as legal counsel and has been the organizing counsel for dozens of stock and non-stock corporations), the representation in the sale or purchase of a business, or a whole host of other legal matters, our firm is well equipped to offer the highest quality of legal representation. Our goal on behalf of our clients is to resolve the legal issue as expeditiously as possible and without the need for undue litigation. We strive to streamline the process and get the matter resolved on terms favorable to our clients whenever we possibly can. However, we are well aware that, at times, certain matters can only be resolved in court. In such instances we are aggressive in pursuing justice on behalf of our clients. Accordingly, we have appeared in Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Courts, General District Courts, and Circuit Courts throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia on behalf of our clients. We regularly appear in all of these Courts in Central and Eastern Virginia (from Fredericksburg and Charlottesville through Richmond and down through Southside Virginia and Hampton Roads). Mr. Bing has appeared in courts in nearly 80 different jurisdictions throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and is quite familiar and comfortable with all of the courts in which he has tried cases. We also appear in the United States District Courts (Federal Court) throughout Virginia. We have also represented clients in Federal Courts on various matters in several states throughout the country. Regardless of whether the case is an in-court or out-of-court matter, we endeavor to keep our clients fully informed of developments every step of the way. The only way to fully resolve a conflict is with the very active participation and fully informed consent of our clients. While we are in court nearly every day dealing with legal issues, we are cognizant of the fact that this might well be the only time you have ever been in such a circumstance. We never lose sight of this fact and are guided by the principle that we work for you.

When you need legal assistance you want someone who will listen to you, hear your problem, and deliver the best and most aggresive representation available. You want someone who has over thirty years of solid experience in the practice of law and who has a proven track record of accomplishment. We are that firm!
