About me

To the layman, the law can be a confusing and frightening subject. When you encounter any legal issue, whether it is the formation of a new business, the purchase or sale of real estate, or prosecuting or defending yourself in litigation, you need a counselor with the judgment and experience to successfully guide you through the process. You need an attorney who can help you to understand your options and help you to make reasoned and intelligent decisions.

For the past twenty-one years, Mr. Rice has been helping individuals and businesses throughout California realize their goals by providing them with steady and sound counsel.

    Richard is an experienced business attorney and litigator that proved to be a valuable resource to me in the management of complex litigation involving our company. I initially retained Richard for his litigation skill and expertise to defend a significant claim brought against our company, but almost immediately he proved to much more than that. His efforts to understand our goals, coupled with his ability to see the bigger picture, made it possible for him to provide pertinent and timely advice to our company. Throughout the process, Richard was very detailed and extremely reasonable in his billing and accounting. I was very impressed by his integrity and work ethic and would be thrilled to work with him again. Whether it is general business litigation defense that you need, or a third-party general counsel / business consultant to provide advice on general business concerns, I both endorse and highly recommend Richard Rice.
