More About Rick

Rick was born and raised in Pinellas County, Florida. He received his Bachelor of Sciences degree at Florida State University and his Law degree at Florida Coastal School of Law. While attending Florida State University, Rick majored in Criminology and Political Science. Rick learned that although the American justice system is one of the best, a knowledgeable attorney is essential. A skilled and dedicated attorney protects your fundamental rights and ensures your safety.

Rick’s Professional Career

After law school, Rick joined the 6th Circuit Public Defender’s Office as an Assistant Public Defender, where he represented thousands of individuals for 7 years both in Pinellas and Pasco County. He handled traffic offenses such as DUI’s and driving while license suspended cases. He also handled drug charges, domestic violence allegations, theft offenses, burglaries, robberies, and gun charges. He also represented individuals charged with sex crimes and murder. Many of the cases Rick handled resulted in a jury trial where he vigorously defended his clients. He fought against charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies that were punishable by life.

Rick’s Extensive Knowledge

In addition to his trial experience, Rick successfully negotiated with prosecutors to achieve favorable results for his clients. Rick’s knowledge of Florida’s Sentencing Guidelines, and the different sentencing enhancements, such as minimum mandatory sentences, PRR, HFO, and 10-20-Life, allow his clients to be fully informed of their options and fully prepared to make the best decision for their future. In many of Rick’s cases, law enforcement tried to bend the rules to get evidence for a conviction, however, Rick was able to use his client’s constitutional rights, such as the 4th amendment, to prevent such evidence from being admitted in court, resulting in a favorable outcome for his clients.

After being at the Office of the Public Defender for over 7 years, Rick made the decision to join the prestigious law firm of Morgan & Morgan PA, where he learned the ins and outs of Insurance Law, primarily focusing on helping individuals receive just compensation from their own insurance company for property damage caused by Hurricane Irma. This experience has helped Rick understand the tactics of insurance companies and how to negotiate settlements.
