    Hired Attorney

    Stephanie Rickard was a joke!

    My first impression was on entering her reception. I approached the desk and I said good morning to the male clerk at the reception desk. He said nothing, only "yes". I repeated myself and said good morning on which he replied, "Yes". This happened for a third time with the same reply. I couldn't believe how rude he was and I do wish that I had done a 180° and left.
    I ignored his ignorance and informed him that I had an appointment with Stephanie Rickard.
    To cut a long story short she never informed me that I had a warrant out for my arrest and I found out by chance by another attorney after I had paid her up front.
    I was always hopeful that she might pull through for me but she was always slow to return my calls and I never felt properly informed or that she was there for me.
    My instincts was proven right at the end of my court dates etc..I wish I had not paid her upfront she was not at all in my corner. ..I would definitely not recommend her.
    "All power corrupts". The economy is due to collapse this September and she will be brought down like the rest of us...that applies to her pathetic clerk at reception.
    Good riddance!

    DUI lawyer

    This review is overdue but I need to share my experience in the hopes that it might help someone who’s looking for a trustworthy lawyer who will go the distance for you, because that’s how I found Stephanie Rickard. In March this year, my worst nightmare came true when I was arrested for a DUI and driving with an expired license. My BAC was .21 and pardon the drama, but basically I thought my life was over. As an international student I had major concerns about how this would all affect my status here, as well as any scholarships I was counting on for school. I cannot overstate how good Stephanie Rickard is at what she does. She somehow got my BAC lowered to .19, which of course made all the difference in terms of the 3-month DUI program versus 9-months, the fine amount, my license restriction. I served 5 days at the Weekend Work Program in Cupertino. More than anything though, she was a source of strength when the whole nightmare was playing out in my head. Right from the beginning I knew I was in good hands. She was understanding, for the most part easy to get a hold of, updated me, and kept me sane. Do yourself a favor and call her.

    Don't look any further!

    I can not express how fortunate I feel for having Stephanie take my case. From the very beginning she went way above and beyond what any other attorney would do. Stephanie's fees are surprisingly affordable for the amount of effort she puts into your case. She always kept me informed of everything that was taking place and pushed for the best possible outcome, which she unbelievably accomplished by having my charges reduced. Stephanie continues to guide me through the "recovery" process and DMV nightmare. If you are in need of legal support or council, do yourself a favor and contact Stephanie, you will not be disappointed.

    Extremely Knowledgeable

    In January, I decided to drink and drive and got pulled over for my poor choice. Doing a bit of research, I became very worried about the stuff I'd have to go through since a DUI carries with it a hefty fine and also a mandatory suspension of the license. For me, I was worried about the effects on my day-to-day life since I was dealing with difficult things at work and home at the time. Stephanie was able to explain the best and worst case scenarios in a way that made sense to me, and assured me that I wouldn't have to go to jail for my first offense (which would have been devastating to my life if I wasn't able to take care of my personal stuff at that point). What amazed me was that my arm had gotten badly bruised from the blood test I opted for and she was able to immediately figure out the person who drew my blood to use as evidence if necessary. The attention to detail and knowledge of the people and factors for DUI cases in the area was what made me choose Stephanie after talking to a couple of other lawyers. I didn't feel pressured to make a decision, and the entire office was very good at communicating with me discreetly and promptly via phone and through email based on my preferences. This way, I was able to take care of a busy work schedule without worrying about being caught at bad times. Her simple explanations of confusing legal things really helped keep me get on with my regular life and ease into the things I needed to do after the court date. She always had a current strategy that she would continually update based on whatever factors became known as it got closer to the court date.

    It ended up that the police officer had done absolutely everything right on their end and I was convicted of a DUI with 0.18 BAC, but Stephanie took care of all of my paperwork and made sure I stayed out of jail. I've talked to other people with similar cases and they've had heftier sentences than I received. The best part of it all is the fact that I didn't have to spend any time in court, and I was notified promptly of all news related to the case.

    For someone so disorganized as myself, it was worth having Stephanie represent me just for the simple fact of making sure all the paperwork was properly handled because I'm pretty sure I would have missed something if I tried to do everything myself. Getting a DUI and learning about the consequences can come as a major shock, but definitely give Stephanie Rickard a call to make sure your case is handled properly.

    This is the lawyer you want.

    If you're in a jam, searching for a lawyer, stop now - this is the one you want. Starting with the first consultation I felt immediately better about my situation. Now that the case is over, I could not be happier or more satisfied with the outcome. Seriously, pick this one.

    One hell of a attorney

    Stephanie is such a honest and trustworthy person .. She handled my case and is now handling my expungement. Unlike many attorneys who are out just for money , Stephanie truly cares and wants the best for the client . Very reasonable to talk to . I would not go to anyone else as long as she's in business .. Hopefully I won't need a attorney again , but if I do , Stephanie is the only one

    Professional, Responsive and Knowledgeable

    I highly recommend Stephanie. I ran into some difficult situations in the past year. My family and I needed Stephanie's assistance on a couple of occasions in the past 10 months. Recently, Stephanie handled my DUI case. She is professional and knowledgeable and always looks out for your interest in a non-judgmental way. She went over the potential consequences with me in a caring and straight forward manner. She does not try to scare nor sugar coat any message. I appreciate that very much. She is also very responsive and kept me in the loop through meetings, phone calls, emails, and text messages, as the matter unfolded. Once you hire her, she will take over for you and you will feel that you are in good hands. Through her effort, the outcome for my case was the best that I could hope for. Thank you very much, Stephanie! I appreciate all your help.

    Great Attorney!

    I hired Stephanie to represent me for a DUI. I was extremely nervous and scared as I had never had any experience or knowledge about the DUI process. Stephanie was very reassuring and walked me each step of the way through this ordeal. She was very honest and upfront. I would highly recommend her if you need assistance with a DUI arrest.

    Thank You Stephanie!!! You are amazing

    Stephanie Rickard was an awesome attorney. I have never been in trouble with the law until my recent DUI. I was lost, depressed, and worried about what was going to happen next. I gave Stephanie a call and scheduled a consultation. The consultation was amazing and I decided to hire her on the spot. She made me feel at ease, and I was finally able to relax and not stress so much. Stephanie answered all the questions I had. I would just be sitting around the house, at work, or out shopping and I would text her random questions regarding my case. She would always respond to each text with the answer I was looking for. When it was time for my court date, Stephanie appeared on my behalf and called me right away with the outcome. I was expecting so many different harsh penalties, but the outcome was not even close to what I was expecting, all thanks to Stephanie. Stephanie is a wonderful lawyer and I would highly recommend her services. Hopefully I don’t get into any more legal trouble, but if I do I know who to call.
