About Stacy

Learn Stacy’s areas of practice.

Before becoming an attorney, I was a middle school teacher. Teaching provided me with many opportunities for advocacy, collaboration, and public speaking. During law school, I worked for the Lubbock County Office of Dispute Resolution where I studied legislation affecting Family Law matters. I had the opportunity to present my findings to the Lubbock County Board of Judges and worked closely with a few of the judges to create new policies for the Lubbock County Court system. I also worked as a student attorney in the Texas Tech Family Law and Housing Clinic where I gained invaluable experience practicing law under the supervision of a licensed attorney. After I graduated law school, I went back to Texas Tech School of Law and worked in the Student Life Department. I've been working at Payne & Truitt since May of 2017. I am passionate about my work and look forward to serving new clients.

Custody Case
Hi, my name is Rebekah, I just wanted to thank Stacy and her law firm in helping me and my family during a custody case. She has been a tremendous help to us! I would definitely recommend her to anyone going through a custody case. It is never easy and i had so many questions during this time. She was so great about getting back with me anytime I had a question or needed help during my case. She was very professional and even the secretary was great about relaying a message or even talking to me over the phone to help in any way she could. I do believe she helped get us the best possible outcome for my case and I am truly grateful!

Great Experience
Stacy’s firm was recommended to me through a family friend, I could not have been more pleased. My trouble with lawyers in the past has been able being able to get in touch with them, when you needed them the most. This was not the case with Stacy, she responded to my inquiries every time, almost immediately. I really felt she was invested in my situation and it wasn’t just another case. She was thorough and transparent every step of the process. I am extremely grateful for her and will recommend her in the future.

Would recommend Mrs. Riker, very professional during my consultation. Even though I didn’t end up needing her services. She was very helpful and supportive of my decision.

Divorce Case
Stacy has gone above and beyond to help me throughout my divorce. Our situation was complicated, and she helped me navigate legal matters. On top of being a very knowledgeable lawyer, she is a stand up person. She was kind and listened to my concerns. She has the heart of a teacher and makes sure you feel comfortable and understand each step.

Best lawyer in Lubbock!
Stacy is an AMAZING lawyer! I talked to 3 lawyers before hiring Stacy and I can honestly say I picked the right one! From our initial consultation I could immediately tell Stacy Riker is very passionate about family law which, made me feel secure that I found the perfect lawyer for me and my family. I won my difficult custody case in under 4 months!! Personally, I was so surprised to win my case in such a short period of time. I was told by another Lubbock lawyer that in my situation this process would take more than a year! Therefore, I’m so grateful for her dedication and hard work. She was very organized, prompt and over all successful in achieving my goals.

Great listener
Stacy is a great listener! In our initial consult Stacy gave me a firm assurance that I had a good case for child custody modification. Our case was one of several special circumstances and I feel like Stacy handled them very well. Stacy also handled me very well!!! I can definitely see myself as a problematic client with so many questions, emotional ups and downs, etc. Stacy is extremely prompt and understanding. She was a fantastic attorney! I have also retained her for any future matters. She's great! She's also a Texas Tech fan. You go girl!

Knowledgeable And Professional
I had a child custody case that I had retained two attorneys prior to retaining Mrs. Riker. The prior attorneys ran the case into the ground. She quickly turned things around for me. I was very satisfied with the way she handled court room etiquette. She represented me honorably. Mrs. Riker was very accessible and responded in an a very timely manner to any questions I had. What I most appreciated about Mrs. Riker, is the fact that she was very forthcoming with honest and constructive advice. I really can’t say enough good things about her! I would and do recommend her to anyone!

Greatest divorce lawyer one could ask for
Going through a divorce is something I never dreamt I would have to experience, but my cheating ex was an abusive narcissist who clearly suffers from a personality disorder. Hiring Stacy to respresent my tough case and stand up for my legal rights is the best decision that I have made in years. She fought on my behalf and helped keep my psychopath ex in check while I was able to focus on emotionally healing from the unpleasant ordeal. Her responses were prompt and she always clearly explained my options to me. Furthermore, she did not sugarcoat anything. She was candid and professional ever since the first time that I spoke on the phone with her. I was preparing mentally for a drawn out odious divorce process. Fortunately, Stacy took care of business. Her efficiency in helping me move on with my life is above reproach. If you are going through a divorce, you want her representing you. My future is bright again and my emotional well-being is secure thanks to her efforts in going above and behind to assist me in getting everything squared away. I am eternally grateful for her amazing efforts and could not be more satisfied with the outstanding customer service that I received from her!

Astounding
After going through some trouble times in a custody battle, we met Stacy and just knew we needed her behind us. The most amazing Attorney out there. She was so kind but fierce and knew how to get it done. She was always so prompt in responding to us and just handled everything so professionally. I would recommend her to everyone needing legal advice.

Satisfied Client
I needed a child custody modification for two sons that wanted to live with me. Stacy had to modify the child support payments and worked with the ex's lawyer who agreed with her new calculations. Stacy had the paperwork signed and filed within a month's time.
