Attorney Dana Jo-Ann Richardson has been a proactive advocate for her clients since entering the Bar in 2007. Her ambitions in the pursuit of law began at Duquesne University School of Law, where Dana was a class representative in the Student Bar Association, and where she became a finalist in the prestigious Carol Los Mansmann Appellate Advocacy Competition. Upon graduating from Duquesne University and receiving her Juris Doctorate in 2007, she sat for the bar examination and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar that year. While a law student at Duquesne, Dana was hired by the law firm Charles Tini and Associates in Pittsburgh, PA as Assistant General Counsel. Her position with the firm exemplified her abilities to analyze complex business contracts and legal issues related to housing and real estate matters. Her tenure at Charles Tini and Associates included practical experience preparing civil complaints; attending hearings, arbitrations and trials, and orchestrating intricate discovery requests during litigation. In 2008, Attorney Richardson accepted a position at Dornish & Scolieri, PC as an attorney handling multiple practice areas. Dana’s work at the law firm required her exceptional analytical skills and legal knowledge in matters involving Pennsylvania property law, landlord-tenant law, business law, and civil litigation. While meeting and often exceeding her client’s needs and case outcomes, Dana became known as an attorney who was reachable and responsive to all of her clients’ communications. Her successful attorney-client relationships coupled with her success as a litigator led to establishing a law firm with Attorney Beth Tibbott. Currently the only African-American sworn in to the Common Pleas Court of Cambria County, Attorney Dana Jo-Ann Richardson continues to be a bold litigator and a sincere advocate for her clients. She has been named a Top 100 Attorney by National Black Lawyers.
