About me

Although the firm's office is in Milwaukee i spend very little time there. My cases and trials are all around the country and so i work remotely as a "virtual"  partner most of the time. During the summer months i live and work from Minocqua, Wisconsin in the far northern portion of the state in the most concentrated inland lake area in the world. In the winter months I live and work from Santa Rosa Beach which is in the Panhandle of Northwest  Florida. I have been selected for listing in Best Lawyers in America since 1994, for Wisconsin Super Lawyers since 2005, for Best of The US in two categories and for Chambers USA. Chambers has published client comments of: "A personality the jury wants to listen to." and "Strategy minded -- develops a timetable and sees it through to completion." Milwaukee Magazine: "The man can talk to juries." "The A-Team of trials -- apporoach is a template for how persuasion should be accomplished." From a Fellow of the LCA.

  • Ross H. Fishman

    Ric's a legend in the legal profession. I was hired by Ric as his expert witness in a complex case of first impression involving Google AdWords and online-marketing issues. He was up against a top litigator at one of the nation's largest firms. At every step, Ric was smarter, tougher, and more strategic, winning by summary judgment. The big-firm guy didn't stand a chance. I've seen Ric teach trial advocacy at LCA and FDCC, and he's held in awe by the senior-level trial-lawyer community. If you have a bet-the-company case anywhere, on any legal issue, the choice is simple -- hire Ric.
