After completing his service in the Marine Corps, Richard Franks became a state court judge in Missouri and then sought a congressional seat in 1974, narrowly losing to the incumbent. After a brief stint practicing law, he became a general counsel for a local construction company in Springfield, MO, eventually working for a variety of national and international concerns as both a project manager and legal counsel on projects across the US, North Africa, and Europe.
He now practices law in Denver and lives on a horse property on the eastern plains outside Denver with his domestic partner, Betsy Hook, and their animals, all of which are adoptions.

FLC Legal - The War in Vietnam that was Never Reported
by Richard Franks
FLC Legal is an inside look at a side of the Vietnam war that most people would believe could not have happened, not to mention, did happen in the US Marine Corps. It tells the story of a band of young trial lawyers, who had also spent nearly a year in training to become Marine Corps infantry officers.
