About Rick

Learn Rick’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Probate
    Probate is a legal process that takes place after an individual dies, whether or not he leaves a will. I can navigate you through this process in a timely and efficient manner. Call today to discuss it further.

  2. Personal injury
    Personal injury claims are brought by individuals seeking compensation for injuries suffered as a result of an accident. An injury is not to property, but to the body, mind, or emotions and is commonly due to a vehicle accident or negligence.

  3. Estate planning
    Estate planning can help minimize costs, legal fees and estate taxes. Proper estate planning will express your wishes regarding the disposition of your property at death, your minor children, and your medical/financial affairs.

  4. Business
    There is no one legal structure that's best for all small businesses. I can help you determine and navigate through the process whether you are a sole proprietor or whether you choose one of the more complicated organizational structures.

  5. Bankruptcy and debt
    I can take the guesswork out of filing a myriad of bankruptcy documents, help make sense of the process, and see to it that the process is completed in a timely manner.

  6. Litigation
    I will seek the best outcome for my client whether it's the initiation or defense of a lawsuit seeking damages, enforcement of a contract, or a court determination of rights.

I’ve only had to work with a lawyer for one experience in my life and everyday I'm thankful it was Attorney Rick Nicodemo. Not only does he know the law, but his care and concern for your case put's you at ease. He walked me through each step along the way until my case was resolved and was always available to answer my questions, no matter how dumb they were. I received the best possible outcome I could have ever had with my case and it was all due to this man!!!!
