Richardson & Pullen, PC, has a long heritage of providing legal services in Allegany County and the surrounding areas. Our firm can trace the origins of its predecessor law practices back to 1827, when Ransom Lloyd (1799-1870) set up a law office in Angelica. The practice was handed down through four generations of the Lloyd and Richardson family, in Angelica and later in Fillmore. Previous incarnations of the firm include Cooley & Lloyd, Lloyd & Pulling, Richardson, Flenagin & Smith, and Richardson, Pullen & Braughtigam. Past and present partners of the firm have variously served the community as judge, district attorney, county legislator and even a U.S. congressman.
The current firm was founded by David P. Richardson (1908-1990), who began practicing law in Fillmore with his father in 1940. He was joined by David T. Pullen in 1975, who took over leadership of the firm in 1980 when David P. Richardson retired. Other attorneys have worked with the firm in the years since, and several former partners continue to work in the area in private practice or government service.
We remain committed to our community and strive to provide professional and affordable legal expertise with a personal touch and unique understanding of local conditions and issues that cannot be matched by big city firms.
