Roger Ritchie - Founder and personal injury attorney at Ritchie

Here for you.


At the Ritchie Law Firm, we’re a family and we treat our clients the same way. This means that our first priority is to make sure our clients get the best recovery possible for their injury cases.


At the Ritchie Law Firm, our team only serves injured parties. We do not represent insurance companies or corporations. This laser focus allows us to provide the best possible representation for our clients.


We only get paid when we win. Our team works on a contingency fee basis, which means that no attorneys’ fees are collected unless there is a recovery in the case.

Our Story

Roger Ritchie, the founder and senior partner of the Ritchie Law Firm, grew up in the Shenandoah Valley and attended Broadway High School. After graduating from Broadway High School, he attended the University of Maryland where he received his bachelor of arts in history, graduating cum laude. Roger then returned to Rockingham County where he spent three years teaching in the Elkton school district and coaching JV football. Towards the end of those three years, he decided that he’d like to shift his career to focus on law.

In 1971, Roger attended the University of Maryland School of Law and received his law degree in 1975. After receiving his law degree, Roger returned to the Shenandoah Valley and began his law practice as a general practice attorney.

Roger’s son, Michael Ritchie, is also a member of the firm and helps the injured and disabled navigate the complex legal system. Mike graduated from Spotswood High School and attended the University of Virginia for both undergraduate and law school. Upon completion of law school in 2002, Mike returned home to the community that had shaped him and began his law practice.

Bob Guntharp has lived in the Shenandoah Valley since 1994 and manages the firm’s Winchester and Martinsburg offices. As the son of an army officer, Bob grew up in a military family and traveled extensively throughout the United States and around the world.
