Licking County Domestic Relations Court Judge Richard P. Wright will serve as president of the Ohio Association of Domestic Relations Judges for 2014 and 2015 after his election Tuesday during the group’s annual winter conference.

Previously, he practiced law for 21 years with his father and as a sole practitioner with Wright Law Offices located in Columbus and Newark. He earned his law degree from Capital University Law School in 1987 and was admitted to the Ohio bar later that year.

“I am honored by the trust placed in me by my fellow judges throughout Ohio,” Judge Wright said. “I look forward to helping to improve the domestic relations court system in Ohio for families going through transition and crisis.”
