Attorney at Law

Richard Fischer

Richard Fischer, an experienced SSI lawyer, represents his clients in the Abilene, Odessa, Lubbock, San Angelo, and Midland, Texas, areas with a wealth of experience both in and out of the courtroom. He knows the value of the Social Security program firsthand, as his late father became unable to work while Richard was in law school. Social Security allowed his parents to remain in their home and provided them with a portion of their lost income. This personal experience drives his passion for his work.

Richard is a native west Texan, born in Odessa. Richard enjoys reading, hiking, camping, grilling, cheering on the Texas Tech Red Raiders, and spending time with his son and daughter in his spare time. He is also a parishioner at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Midland.

If you are looking for an SSI lawyer in the Abilene, Odessa, Lubbock, San Angelo, or Midland, TX area, or need help with long or short-term disability claims, rely on Richard. He has years of experience helping clients work through these tedious processes and fights to ensure your case gets a resolution you can be satisfied with. For more information or to get started on your case, call today.

I am here to help you get the justice and compensation that you deserve.
