Rick’s connection to family and a focus on his spiritual life have always inspired him in his role as a lawyer. Although he graduated from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 1981, with an immediate successful run in criminal defense, his deep-rooted desire to help people led him to form his own personal injury law firm in 1992 with his younger brother, Christopher.
Then in 2001, he joined the Cory Watson team. While grand verdicts and positive results are always preferred outcomes, he is most proud that his clients know he cares for them.
When Rick is not busy helping people through the law, he spends time with his wife, his two adult children, and his grandchild. Also, in keeping with the heart of Rick’s favorite quote, “Seek first the kingdom of God,” (Matthew 6:33), Rick spends much of his free time studying the bible and discussing the spiritual side of life. His gift to look beneath the surface of a person’s physical need allows him to help clients on a deeper, more meaningful level.HONORS, AWARDS & ACCOMPLISHMENTSSuper Lawyers, 2012-2015AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rated Martindale-HubbellThomas More Society of Metro Birmingham, Catholic Lawyers Group, Inaugural PresidentSertoma International, Life MemberCahaba Valley Sertoma Club, Past President
