About me

Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, Rick was raised in Orlando, Florida and Peachtree City, Georgia. He was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 2004 after receiving his B.B.A., magna cum laude, and his law degree from Georgia State University. While in law school, Rick served as a Senator of the Student Bar Association and received Honors for his performance in his Litigation class. During his third year, he became a certified neutral and mediated many landlord-tenant disputes through the Fulton County Magistrate Court Landlord-Tenant Mediation Program.


Upon graduation from law school, Rick began his legal career at a law firm in Marietta, and subsequently worked for an insurance defense firm in Atlanta. Prior to representing injured workers, Rick focused on defending employers and insurance companies in workers' compensation matters. Rick’s practice is now devoted to the representation of injured workers and uses the valuable experience he gained while representing employers and insurance companies to ensure his clients obtain all benefits to which they are entitled under the Workers’ Compensation Act.

In his spare time, Rick enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends. He is bilingual in English and Spanish.
