Riter, Rogers, Wattier & Northrup, LLP traces it roots back to the early 1880's when L.L. Stephens came west and studied law. He was joined in the practice by his son, E.W. Stephens, and then in 1941 joined by R.C. Riter.
Centrally located in Pierre, South Dakota, the state capitol, the firm has a wide and varied practice of law throughout the state and particularly in central South Dakota. Sitting just blocks from the state capitol, members of the firm are extensively involved in lobbying activities for numerous state and national clients during the legislative sessions and representing them before administrative agencies throughout the year.
