HOUSTON and HENRY COUNTY: 09:28 AM For the first time in about 27 years the incumbent Judge for Place 1 of the 20th Judicial Circuit, Larry Anderson, is not seeking re-election.
In the May 24th Republican Primary there were three candidates seeking election for the Judgeship. One was eliminated and no candidate received 50% plus 1 which required a run off.
Chris Richardson, a practicing private attorney is seeking election for Place 1 Judge, 20th Judicial Circuit Circuit which makes up Houston and Henry County.
Chris Richardson is a Dothan native who attended school in Dothan. He graduated and went to law school. He worked briefly with a District Attorney in the prosecution of cases and returned to Dothan with a private law firm.
That practice was interrupted when Chris Richardson was called to Active Duty in the Military and deployed. After a year or more active duty Chris Richardson returned to Dothan. While still friends with the firm he was with which specialized in bankruptcy, Chris Richardson entered a new firm with Jim Parkman and William White along with John John Steensland.
When Steensland was elected Circuit Judge, Chris Richardson remained with the firm, Parkman and White, and took over a lot of cases which John John Steensland had. The firm Parkman and White changed with Jim Parkman leaving the firm and a new firm took over, which Richardson remained with the firm.
Chris Richardson has maintained a private law practice in various areas of the law. He has handled cases in Municipal, Circuit and Federal Court, Civil Cases, Divorce Cases, Criminal Cases and many more.
