  • Profile
I'm Richard K. Payne and I am very excited to be part of the Denali Law Group as I am here to provide exceptional legal representation to Alaskans. I have been practicing law in Alaska for over 20 years, both as a civil litigation attorney and as a Palmer Assistant District Attorney. I have prosecuted every conceivable type of criminal matter from double homicide, multiple murders, theft, assaultdrug crimes, and DUIsAs a former Prosecutor, I was very fortunate to make lasting friendships and to become familiar with the District Attorney's office personalities, policies, and procedures as well as the Palmer Court System. What this means to you is, I know who I am dealing with, and I know what I am doing. My accountability, relationships, and intimate knowledge of Alaskan Law are your greatest assets.
