Winning with a life lesson
Tasha is a go getter and fights for you with passion! My case was one for family law history made more complicated with autism involved. Tasha fought hard and the judge saw the truth behind the he said/ she said arguments. We ended with a win and received a life lesson that moved us forward into communicating better with each other. I absolutely love Tasha and know that if you want someone knowledgeable, truth seeking, and quick on her feet, she would be the one to go to.

Thank You Thank You Thank You
Ms Ricks did an excellent job for me and my daughter. She fought for us and guided me every step of the way. As a father I was worried that the court would take the mother's word and strip me of my rights and privileges. But Ms. Ricks provided good counseling and helped me come up with a plan of action to get my daughter back into my life. She presented the evidence in a way that nobody could rebut. She poke holes in the clearly falsified allegations my daughter mother made against me. I highly recommend Ms. Ricks. Thanks again! Dad.

Single Mother Approved!
Ms Ricks was a breath of fresh air after working with two other attorneys. In my same sex divorce/child custody case she exhibited more compassion and experience than my previous two attorneys. She was knowledgeable and diligent in her work in representing me against my irrational and unstable ex. If you want someone on your corner to fight for your rights than contact Ms. Ricks. You will not be disappointed.

She truly cares about your situation and has the knowledge and experience you’re looking for
I was at the very lowest in my life when Tasha took on my case. I felt as though my world was truly falling apart from every direction and really needed a strong attorney to fix everything and fast. Tasha did just that and more. I wouldn’t had made it to where I am without God and her, and I truly thank her for that. The way she handled the other attorney and my case was just perfect. There is hope and I thank Tasha every day.

God Send Angel
Initially, when I contacted Attorney Ricks, I was skeptical because I had a "past" distrust for Attorney's based on previous experiences that I have endured. But different than other situations in which I utilized an attorney, this time, it was concerning the well-being of my young daughter. I needed an attorney that I could trust without a doubt. I was caught off guard when Attorney Ricks answered her phone so late in the evening, I was expecting to leave a message. "2" days later I met with Attorney Ricks for my consultation. Right away, instantly, from the moment I laid eyes on her I knew she was trustworthy...I could feel it in my gut. I was at ease during the entire consultation. Attorney Ricks, listened to me, attentively, and not just to obtain facts, but I could tell she genuinely cared about my situation as an individual person and not just as a prospective business client. When I left her office that afternoon, I was certain she was the right Attorney to help me with my situation. She was very thorough in her explanation of the "process" and next steps. She was firm and very professional, yet understanding the entire time in every single communication and I knew that all I needed to do was listen to her direct instruction and follow her guidance step-by-step. And because I was obedient and allowed her to do her job, she did it extremely well and the outcome of my situation was in my favor! After my young daughter was returned to my care, when I hugged and kissed my daughter, her forehead was very warm. I took her temperature and my daughter was running a fever. I gave her motrin, hydrated her with water and checked on her through out the night, and her fever began to reduce and she was able to rest peacefully. And when my daughter is resting peacefully, I am able to do so as well. I am thankful to Attorney Ricks, for bringing peace back into my life. Attorney Ricks is very a beautiful woman, on the inside as well as the outside and she knows her facts! Attorney Ricks worked very hard to get my young daughter returned home to me safely to restore peace in my life and I consider Attorney Ricks to be a beautiful "God Send Angel"

My Consultation Experience
I loved my consultation with Ms. Ricks! She was very knowledgeable and understanding! She made it very easy for me to open up and be honest about my upcoming divorce. She's told me all the facts that I needed to know in order to make an informed decision about my thoughts about divorce. I'd recommend her to anyone who is seeking legal advice and/or representation.

Highly recommended
The mother of my kids was falsely accusing me of domestic violence and being a threat to my two kids. The mother of my kids Didnt want me to see our kids any more so she was hiding them from me. After four months without seeing my children and being highly devastated, I knew I had to take legal matters. I was searching for an attorney and no one would take my case seriously or their Secretaries would not call me back. One day Google gave me another option, Tasha Ricks, so i called her not knowing that was her personal cell phone. She answer my called right away, listened to my situation, gave me hope again, and gave me an opportunity right away. When we went to court, she defended me against the mother of my children and her attorney. I was amazed by how well she defended me, that even the judge was able to tell that the mother of my kid's accusations were false. Thanks to her hard work I can now enjoy my kids and watch them grow.

There is hope for Father's
I felt my back up against the wall. thinking my son would would be taken from me to other state by his mother. It was an on healthy relationship between the mother and I . I was just put out of my house with just my work clothes. I heard constant threats from the mother that she was heading back to her home state with my son and her two kids that I loved and took in as my own. In fear my son was being neglected I got the right information and chose to keep my son by my side. I also knew I needed a lawyer to help me with this. I literally prayed for help. Why searching threw the internet late night with none of my calls being answered. I tried one more time and there was an answer. It was Tasha Ricks law firm. As I explained my story for at least 30 minutes to who I thought was her secatery ,it turned out it was Ms Rick's her self. I was glad to know that as late it was she took the time to hear my story. Right away I knew she was the one to help me. She went to bat right away for me on my case. In short time I was awarded temporary custody of my son. I couldn't be happier than that moment. So for Father's who have no hope Ms Tasha Ricks is that hope .

Right from the start, the passion that my client had for his son was more than evident to me. I could hear his fatherly love in his voice. When I met with him, I knew that he was a devoted father who kept his son's best interest first and foremost. As I went to work for him, I knew that I had to do whatever it took for my client to keep his son. I did just that for him. I remain ever so grateful to have been of service to this loving and devoted father, my client.

Light at the End of the Tunnel
I was seeking an attorney for a modification for my orders. After speaking with many attorneys, I knew instantly Tasha was the attorney for me. Tasha was ALWAYS available to answer the many questions that I had. There were several times that problems occurred during the weekend, and she was always available to advise me. Many attorneys will tell you they are reachable but you end up speaking to paralegals and answering machines, not with Tasha! She makes you her #1 priority. After 13 years and many disappointments, Ms. Ricks was finally able to get it right! Thank you Tasha for scoring ONE for the DADS! You truly were the light at the end of my tunnel!

Throughout all of the circumstances, he was steadfast in his dedication to his family. I had no choice, not only to help him, but to also succeed for him. It is a choice that I am so pleased to have made!

Our Saving Grace
From the first time I spoke with Ms. Ricks I knew she would take care of my family, and I was right. At every turn, she has gone above and beyond anything I've ever seen in regards to legal representation and counsel. With my case, it seems something has gone wrong at every turn, and she has been right there, two steps ahead, ready to do everything and what's best for my little girl. She makes you feel like family is fighting for you and genuinely cares about my daughter and myself as well. If you want someone to fight tooth and nail for your family, then you've found her. I cannot say enough about how amazing Ms. Ricks is, and how I want everyone to know that you won't find a more devoted, compassionate, and all around incredible lawyer.

If I was required to do, what I had to do for this client, each and every day, then it is a job well done. I care deeply about this client and I will always keep her a top priority. It is both an honor and gift to serve her and her child. I am happy to do just that. I am fortunate to have the privilege to represent her. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I remain devoted to her case. I cherish the very act of advocating for her. This client is the reason that I do what I do.

Great Lawyer. She will go the extra mile for you!
I hired Ms. Ricks after talking to many attorneys in my area and those attorneys telling me that they would take my case but they acted like they didn't care about my children's future or mine. I made an appointment to see Ms. Ricks; after I met with her I knew that she would care about my children's future. Since the first day she was there for my children and me. She keeps you up to date on the case the whole time from emails, to text messages, to phone calls. She is involved in the case as if she was defending her own family. She is very hard working to make sure that she does everything possible to see that you have the best defense in court. She will make sure that you understand what is happening and if you don't understand she will explain it to you. I would recommend her to anyone if they want someone who will have their back in court. She is does everything to make sure that the case goes in your favor. She is dedicated your case from the beginning till the end. I am very impressed how she handles herself under pressure. She is very friendly and shows great customer service. She goes above and beyond for her clients. I am so happy that I hired Ms. Ricks.

Came to my rescue
I hired Joseph Galardy and paid him 8000.00 to handle my DUI case. He didn't show up for two of my court dates. I pleaded with him time and time again to correspond with me and he would repeatedly ignore me. I called ms ricks out of desperation. She promptly attended to my needs legally and emotionally. I would recommend her to anyone. Kerry
