Cephus Richard, III

Attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law's Dallas Office

Mr. Cephus Richard, III is an experienced trial attorney who has practiced law for nearly 15 years.

Mr. Richard was born and raised in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and is a graduate of Pine Bluff High School. Growing up without cable television, Mr. Richard had only a set of Encyclopedias and Legos to keep him occupied. As he read about past Presidents having law degrees, Mr. Richard gained interest in attending law school. After he completed a Trial Advocacy course and participated in Mock Trials, Mr. Richard decided he would become a Trial Attorney after acquiring his law degree.

Mr. Richard attended The University of Memphis where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering before pursuing his Doctor of Jurisprudence at The University of Arkansas School of Law at Fayetteville. He began his career as an attorney soon thereafter and has since tried dozens of cases in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Missouri.

Joining Thomas J. Henry Law in 2022, Mr. Richard currently focuses his practice on representing clients injured in car accidents, company vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, premises liability accidents, and workplace accidents.

Outside of his work as an attorney, Mr. Richard has been married to his wife Adrienne since 1997, when they were both freshmen in college. They have three children, Tyler Kennedy, Addisyn Michelle, and Leelah Cemone, and reside in the DFW area.
