Best Lawyer and Staff
Ms. Rickerson and her team are the best! I heard from several people that Ms. Rickerson was the best family lawyer in the area. She was recommended to me by several people. I called and scheduled an appointment to meet with her. When I met with her she gave me so many scenarios of what to expect with my case. She told me step by step what she would do to get everything completed. My case started in June and my divorce was finalized in November. Ms. Rickerson's staff was also amazing to work with throughout the entire process. They always made time to speak with me. Ms. Rickerson and her team made me feel more like family than a client. Thank you Ms. Rickerson and team for everything!

I used Sheena Rickerson for a Family Law matter. I was extremely happy with the assistance she provided to me. Mrs. Rickerson’s staff was continually prompt with my paperwork and making contact with me, which made my experience very smooth. I would highly recommend Carmichael and Rickerson for your legal needs.

Mrs. Rickerson and her paralegal have gone above and beyond to help my husband and myself with legal documents I had no idea how to process in the court system. Mrs. Rickerson took care of our ordeal quickly and promptly. I must brag on the quickness of responses of any calls, emails, etc. that I needed answers on. I think God for her and her staff!!!

Kinship Adoption
By taking a chance on a google search I was blessed with hiring Sheena to handle a temporary custody order. What was a very emotional situation and total confusion to me, was completely handled with professionalism and compassion. Always was quick with responses to my numerous questions and concerns. After the custody hearing her and the firm got busy right away to the next steps needed for the kinship adoption. I highly recommend hiring her and her partner Carey for any of your legal concerns.

"Sheena is an excellent lawyer and I fully endorse her as fellow colleague in private practice. She works extremely hard, is always prepared on her cases and will fight for the best interest of her clients."
Unknown Attorney | Mar 01
Relationship: Co-worker
"Sheena is an outstanding and seasoned litigator. With 40+ criminal trials and 10 years of experience as a family law paralegal, her legal career has been very diverse. I have known Sheena for 6+ years. I was her supervisor when she first started her career as a prosecutor. We tried many cases together and her work ethic has always been unequalled. After beginning private practice, I had many cases against Sheena. She was always ethical, straightforward, and direct. Sheena has always been someone who will listen to opposing viewpoints, and take what it is said into consideration; but will defend her position aggressively if she knows she has a great case. Now that she has left the State Attorney's Office, I am proud to call her my partner. I have unwavering faith in Sheena and her abilities. With her level of experience in multiple areas of the law, I have no doubt that she will always be an asset to her clients."
