Brian M. Ricci

About Me

I concentrate in Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability, Trucking  and Auto Accidents.  I am recognized in North Carolina and nationally as an advocate of workers who are injured on the job.  I was appointed in July 2002 to serve on the board of directors of the Workers Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG).  I am also a past council member of the N.C. Bar Association Workers Compensation Section.


In 2006 the North Carolina State Bar certified me as a specialist in Social Security Disability Law and re-certified me in 2012.  I handle Social Security Disability and SSI claims from the initial application through US Federal District Court.  My firm is one of only a handful that handles claims through the Federal Court level.


I am also a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum where membership is limited to attorneys who have million dollar settlemetns and/or a verdict in excess of one million dollars.  Fewer than 1% of all US lawyers are members.


I have also been selected for membership in The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers for North Carolina.  Membership is obtained only through special invitation. 


I believe that every client should have full access to their attorney, be kept informed regarding the status of their case and that phone calls/emails be returned in a timely manner.  I am very prooud to represent and fight for the rights of the injured and disabled to level the playing field against insurance companies, employers, corporations and government agencies.
