I have known Doug for over 20 years, my dad hired him for me when I was in my teens for a family matter. He did not keep me very informed of the case, he did not give me very many ideas of how to go about winning the case, except to tell me to follow through with the judges orders. I have contacted Mr. Ricks throughout the past 10 years several times trying to contact my father, or to at least know that he was alive, and Mr. Ricks refused to give me ANY information. I have recently found out through a friend that my dad passed away in January of 2013. I wrote Mr. Ricks a letter, asking him why I was never contacted and informed, and I still have not heard back. That was a month ago. Mr. Ricks had before used the excuse of not revealing any information of clients or case standings while he is representing them, which I can understand to a certain extent, but, to refuse to even tell me if he was living or dead when I contacted him, and to not even inform me when he did pass? I think that's pretty low. People aren't stupid, and the welfare of a person, including death records are public for a reason, and they are certainly not included in the attorney/client privacy laws. He needs to start caring about his clients and their family, instead of just the money that he is making by representing them.

Doug represented me with my divorce from my now previous husband who was a less than honest person. I felt that I was in good hands and if ever I need an attorney I will not hesitate to call on Doug.

Mr. Douglas Ricks represented me as my attorney during my divorce. Mr. Ricks was professional, thorough, and extremely helpful in his guidance.

Even after gathering all the useful evidence supporting my case, handing it to him, and following up, he failed to present, failed to address the Judge professionally, and it seems had a closer relationship with opposing counsel than with his paying client. I fired him and did a better job representing myself.
