Attorney Richard Walters is a native of Pittsburgh and graduated from Shaler Area High School in the North Hills. He went to West Virginia University in Morgantown on a football scholarship, lettering for two years and starting his senior year for the Mountaineers. At West Virginia University, Rich received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in Marketing. After working in business in Charleston, West Virginia, he returned to Pittsburgh, attending Duquesne University School of Law.

Rich enrolled in law school because he wanted to solve problems for the greater good. He believes that the most important aspect of practicing law is the effort to conduct litigation in an expeditious manner that fulfills both the goals and needs of the client without needless delay. His experience has taught him to determine the client’s goals and needs after a full and forthright discussion, and to develop a legal plan and timeline to attain those goals and needs. As he is fond of saying, “Justice delayed is justice denied!” His journey through law school and beyond has only refined and deepened this basic conviction, and he seeks daily to realize it for his clients.

During law school, Rich was an intern for Pennsylvania’s State Attorney General in the Criminal Division and participated in Appellate Moot Court competition. Upon graduating from law school, Rich worked for the Law Firm of Weis & Weis in Insurance Defense, where he specialized in auto and medical malpractice cases and accrued practical experience with jury and non-jury trials, arbitrations, Magisterial District Justice hearings, pre-trial motions, depositions, and discovery.

Since 1994, Rich has independently practiced law across western Pennsylvania. He has advocated for clients in cases ranging from personal injury, disability, family, immigration, small business, and real estate, to wills and estate matters. He has argued before appellate judges and conducted numerous interviews with clients at the county, state, and federal penitentiaries in the Western Pennsylvania region.

Rich has represented claimants in employment insurance disability and Social Security Disability claims. He has experience in Orphans’ Court and Probate matters. He has represented petitioners and creditors in bankruptcy matters. He has represented claimants and businesses in workers’ compensation matters. He has represented parents and grandparents in custody and Office of Child and Youth Services (CYS) proceedings. He has represented parties in divorce and equitable distribution matters.

From 2002 through 2005, Rich volunteered for the Los Angeles County Bar Association Immigration Project. He has represented individuals in immigration matters ranging from Adjustment of Status cases to petitions for an O visa. He has represented defendants in matters ranging from drug possession and Driving Under the Influence of drugs and alcohol (DUIs) to aggravated assault and firearms violations. He has conducted business litigation ranging from debt and creditor matters to construction contracts and mechanic’s liens. He has advocated for his clients at countless preliminary hearings, probation violation hearings, bond reduction hearings, guilty pleas, and formal arraignments.

Rich is also licensed to practice in the State of West Virginia and has represented many clients in the Northern Panhandle and Northern West Virginia generally.

In short, Rich is a seasoned attorney with decades of legal experience, education, and connections who is ready to fight for you. He offers affordable and comprehensive legal services, with prices based on the individual case.

In his spare time, Rich is an avid actor in local stage and film productions. He enjoys Argentine tango dancing and performing yoga, and sings in his church choir. After playing Division 1 men's club rugby for over 20 years for the Pittsburgh Harlequins, Rich now coaches grade school and high school youth rugby.

Mr. Logue is good for one reason, he cares. A client is not a quick buck. He always answers his phone, day or night and he understands the law better than anyone. He always answers my calls for both corporate and personal legal decisions and I have a ton of questions. His rates are reasonable too. Fair and firm. Anonymous
