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.

  • Timothy Minthorn Klob

    I have known Rick DeMedeiros for over five years. Over the course of the past five years, we have worked together at the same firm where I was one of the partners supervising Rick's work, and then later while we worked for different firms on opposite sides of litigation, and most recently where Rick and I have worked together on cases through our own respective law firms. In each of these successive professional relationships, I have always found Rick to adhere to the highest ethical and professional standards, and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable of the facts and issues in his workers' compensation cases. I endorse Rick's work based upon his proven ability to achieve positive results for his clients.
