ONTARIO, Calif., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, (MWA) – an Inland Empire headquartered firm with a national practice specializing in matters involving employment and consumer class actions, commercial litigation, product liability, and catastrophic personal injury – is excited to announce Joseph L. Richardson has joined its team as a partner to lead its newly created Racial & Economic Justice Practice Group.
This practice group will focus on working in concert with MWA's other litigation practice including employment, civil rights, and consumer and small business class actions to bring attention to racial inequality practices and to achieve justice for its clients. The Racial and Economic Justice Practice Group is designed to be a voice for the community that faces racial discrimination and inequality in the workplace, in the business community, and in the consumer marketplace. With Richardson at the helm, the group is uniquely positioned to bring actions against institutions whose policies disproportionately harm people of color in the workplace and in the consumer/small business marketplace.
In addition to litigation, Richardson also leads the practice group in advocacy – partnering with leaders and community institutions, including schools and nonprofits, to shed light on and combat racial and economic inequality. He is a proven leader and bridgebuilder, who continues to broker difficult conversations with diverse people for the benefit of the community.
"The addition of Joe Richardson and introduction of the Racial and Economic Justice Practice Group allows MWA to focus on and further commit to addressing racial and economic injustice systematically faced by our clients," commented Senior Partner Richard D. McCune. "Joe is a great lawyer and advocate, and his relationship and skills make him an invaluable addition to our firm."
Richardson is a frequent public speaker on legal and ethical responsibility, leadership, civil rights, and today's fronts in the search for justice. He is also a frequent media contributor, appearing on local and national television and writing on constitutional and justice issues.
His career has been full of giving back and serving his community. In 2019, Richardson was appointed a member of the Redlands Planning Commission. Since 2015, he has been an adjunct law professor at LaVerne College of Law, teaching California Civil Procedure and Trial Advocacy. Personally, he has stayed involved in the community through the Family Services Association of Redlands and the Garner Holt Foundation.
