Darren Richards

Darren Richards, originally from Saskatchewan, has called Alberta home for over 35 years. He started the firm Richards Wood Toogood (which over the years became Richards Hunter, Richards Hunter Toogood, and now: Richards + Company).

A graduate in science from Liberty University in Virginia and of law from the University of Alberta, he was admitted to the Law Society of Alberta Bar in 1993. 


He has primarily limited his practice to Real Estate (both residential and commercial) and is now viewed as the premier Real Estate Lawyer in Edmonton. Corporate/Commercial Law another specialty serving both small and medium sized owner-managed business in the Edmonton and surrounding region.


Mr. Richards has taught the Law Society of Alberta Bar Admission Course in the Real Estate Law Section and currently carries on a busy commercial and residential real estate practice. He is an advisor and regular contributer to REIN's Real Estate Investment Magazine.

He is a past-president and board member of the South Edmonton Business Association and currently represents hundreds of businesses (corporations, sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited partnerships, and joint ventures) with respect to their wide range of legal needs. Mr. Richards also acts for major banking institutions and other lenders in relation to their commercial loan facilities.

Mr.Richards has enjoyed coaching his kids in hockey (atom through midget) as well as basketball. He is a former Elder at both Ellerslie Road Baptist Church and GraceLife Church of Edmonton. And of course, he's a Roughrider fan.  Contact Darren HERE.

Real Estate Lawyer | Wills + Estates

 . . . this guy has a couple of masters and a doctorate degree - and now he has a JD degree from the University of Alberta School of Law - so he's 'official' now. He's a theology junkie and former senior pastor of an evangelical church in Calgary. He has a wonderful wife and 3 cute kids. He works out and can bench  - oh I don't know; way more than you. He worked for us the past two summers as our Student-Intern-Do-Whatever-We-Tell-You-To-Do-Guy. Summers are so so fun.  . . . But guess what? He STILL wants to work for us. I honestly thought he was smarter than that. He is now Articling for us (i.e. he is a Student-at-Law). This is going to be a great year!  . . . CONTACT HIM HERE


Where to start . . . .  a Packers fan (love them green and gold!), country music junkie, and mother of two. She's also Darren's personal legal assistant and probably the main reason so many clients think they like him. She can do computer stuff at lightning speed. Seriously. Plus she's always so dang nice about everything and willing to do whatever heavy lifting and complex paralegal work thrown at her. Her and her husband just got a new truck - so  if you need help moving stuff . . .  just sayin'.  Contact her HERE.

The only reason Darren survives . . .


She does it all and keeps the gang motivated and happy. Everything that needs to get done she can do. From complex Wills drafting to booking that cool ridiculously fun Christmas party - or even more important, call that buddy of yours who's a golf pro to get a tee time when there's no tee times to get. Assisting Jeremy (mostly) and Darren too, with Real Estate, she's also the lead (aka only) assistant in our Wills and Estates world. She still finds the time to bake bunt cake (or at least tell her daughter to bake bunt cake) for the office. Note, the bunt cake is NOT for client consumption. Only us - just trying to be totally clear and manage expectations.  She loves her dog (but not the vet bills). And when her husband golfs (not really) with her boss (really). And sentences that start with 'and'.  Contact her HERE.

The glue that holds it all together . . . .


Peg and Darren's teenage boys are friends and play XBOX and school volleyball together. Comparing notes and stories and network blocking apps at work . . .  ahhh: those boys don't stand a chance. Peg is our (super duper friendly) doorkeeper. She's the first and last person you'll see when you drop by our office. So you really can't help but think we're awesome! Plus she does all the behind the scenes stuff that keeps a business like ours running. AND, now that we take Visa and MasterCard, there's a good chance you'll also deal with Peg when you pay our ridiculously small legal accounts! You can contact her HERE.

Only one chance to make a good first impression . . .


She's been with us forever. Well, not forever, but a very long time. As in well three years now. Man, is she ever getting old! Suzanne takes on every challenge: She covers all the overflow from the rest of the crew and is the go-to conveyancer for real estate files all year long. She loves tattoos, working out, curling - and watching her bro' represent Canada's at WORLDS! Seriously! How cool is that!!!???  Great smile, Great attitude. And she loves when her hubby gets back from Abu Dhabi or where ever the heck he's been doing that oil patch work thingy that he does so well. Contact her HERE.

Has it already been that long?


Ruth is our corporate specialist: Incorporations, amalgamations, annual returns. She does all that ridiculously difficult stuff that a busy corporate practice needs done. Oh man is she ever awesome!! We stole her from Manitoba. I'm thinking the Blue Bombers and Jets can survive without a fan or two. We won this trade hands down. She has her CORES 3 certification. For those that don't know what that means, it means she's smarter than you and can do basically everything. A mom, Pastor's wife, a corporate specialist . . . and she just renovated her kitchen so ask yourself over for dinner sometime. Contact her HERE.

Where business gets done. Literally.
