Women & Business: Dana J. Richardson-Campbell
Dana J. Richardson-Campbell is the Owner/Partner of Tibbott & Richardson, P.C.
The firm was founded in 2010 when Richardson-Campbell and her partner, Beth Tibbott, both had young children and other professional obligations. Eight years later, the pair decided to focus fully on growing “TR Law,” dedicating all of their efforts to help more people. Since then the firm has grown exponentially — by more than 450 percent. Richardson-Campbell believes that dreaming big and setting clear goals makes those goals happen. TR Law has “epic” plans for growth over the next 3 to 5 years and beyond. “Our goal is always to help as many people as possible.”
TR Law’s strategy pivoted as a result of the pandemic. When it became clear that there was to be a lockdown, the firm immediately took action to ensure that its clients were still being served with no interruption. The firm always had the capability to go 100 percent virtual, Richardson-Campbell says, and did so seamlessly. “We are actually better able to serve our clients in most cases because of the switch to virtual court hearings, which frees up a considerable amount of time for us and for our clients.”
Looking back, Richardson-Campbell says her career highlights are not in the form of awards or other recognitions. “The best moments in my career have been when I was able to help a client who has undergone mental and or physical abuse break free of the hold that the other party had on them. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a person find their own sense of self, become more confident, and go bravely down a new path that they have set for themselves, and knowing you were a part of that.”
What is the best advice Richardson-Campbell ever received? “People run systems and systems run businesses. You cannot get far if you don’t have policies, systems and procedures in place.”
Richardson-Campbell has served on nonprofit boards for both the Homewood Business Owners Association and The Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse.
