In 1998 Rick and his family moved to the Four Corners area of Colorado where he limited his practice to real state and land use law, representation of a local nursing home and a local bank.  In 2001, he accepted a position in the trial division with the Supreme Court of Colorado Office of Attorney Regulation and moved to Denver, Colorado.  His practice consisted of prosecution of attorneys who committed various ethics rules. 


After his twin daughters graduated high school in 2005, Rick and his wife, Marica, relocated to Concord, North Carolina to be close to their son and grandchildren and be back in the warm weather South.  Since establishing his practice in North Carolina, Rick concentrates on all aspects of estate administration, guardianship administration, and family law.  


Entering his 40th year of providing quality legal services, Rick bases his practice on taking care of his clients and providing common sense solutions to their legal problems.

Mr. Kraus is an Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Kraus agreed to assist me with a complicated and time sensitive Guardianship issue. Having been appointed my sister's Guardian 2 1/2 years ago became more daunting when her Medicaid benefits were given a 30 day notice of termination effective 8-31-13. Reinstatement meant a hasty sale of real estate and dealing with two separate courts to gain approval. Mr. Kraus listened to my details involved, and immediately agreed to help me. Mr. Kraus kept me updated via email and phone throughout the many reams of paperwork, accompanied me to court in a Western NC county to appear in court, took complete charge to lessen my stress. I sincerely do not know how this could be accomplished so quickly, even the nursing home where my sister resides, could not believe how quickly Mr. Kraus accomplished the task....under 45 days. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Mr. Kraus and his staff if timeliness, attention to detail, and professionalism are critical to the issue.

| Consulted Attorney
In dealings w Mr. Kraus who came to Concord Nc in abt 2005 From various states included Dekalb, GA Colorado and residence in AZ. he had different types of law and arrived here where some of his children resided . Mr. Kraus has done everything to dishonor Any written, verbal or ethically related position. He has been nothing but revengeful and using his power against those he needed to respect , guide and assist in situations that were not properly placed on those parties he had no compaction in abusing his power in wrongly placed power. Over charges, false postings in legal records, and misconduct are a few of his many faults.
