Richard Brown received a Bachelor of Arts and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Cincinnati, followed by receiving a Juris Doctorate from The Ohio State University. As an attorney practicing private law for over 35 years, Brown's concentration and success with hundreds of construction, oil and gas, medical malpractice and insurance coverage litigation cases helped earn him licenses to practice law in Ohio, various federal courts and the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In addition to his extensive background in public service and the legal arena, Brown is also a member of the American Bar Association, Ohio State Bar Association, Columbus Bar Association, Defense Research Institute and Columbus Claims Association, and he was selected as "Best Lawyer" by Columbus CEO Magazine from 2010-2017.

Brown has lived in Canal Winchester for over twenty years, where he and his wife raised their three children. He is heavily involved in the local community, including serving as President of the Canal Winchester Diamond Club, overseeing fundraising efforts for the high school baseball program and being a youth baseball coach.
