About Me

When I'm not working, I'm helping with community service.  See my website at dhickslaw.com for more information.  I have represented many lawyers and the family members of judges, and served as a Temporary Superior Court Judge in 5 California counties from 1979 to 2013, by invitation from those Courts after they had come to know my work. We are frank and prompt with advice, keep our clients posted on their cases and expect to win without having to break any rules.  We won't take dishonest clients.  If there aren't any tracks in the snow, we'll make some.
