About Ridge

Learn Ridge’s areas of practice.

I have been representing the vicitms of negligence in and out of court since 1996.  My entire career has been dedicated to helping the "little guy." I am fluent in Spanish and represent many clients who speak little or no English.  I attended high school in Mesa, attended law school out-of-state, and then I returned to Arizona after law school to make a home and a career in this community. Our office is in the East Valley, but we represent clients all over the Phoenix area and some of our clients have been from as far away as Kingman, Prescott and Tucson.

This is all I do, and I have helped hundreds of deserving people receive fair compensation for their injuries. The consultation and phone call are free. I will visit you in person at home or in the hospital to discuss all of your options and rights.  I don't get paid unless you win or settle your case successfully, and I never charge more in fees than what you the client receive after paying all other expenses from your settlement.  I even give out my cell phone number to my clients so they can reach me with anything urgent.  

We take your case and your rights seriously. Don't go up against the insurance company alone or with an inexperienced attorney.  

I will take your call personally and will visit you personally.  Don't be satisfied with talking to a receptionist or paralegal about your case. Call me today.

Very happy with Mr Hicks
Mr. Hicks represented me in an accident case years ago and now recently with a landlord problem. I was extremely happy with his service. He was there for me whenever I had questions. The accident settlement was very fair. He always takes the time to personally talk me through any issue or question. So nice!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2012.

Probation issued in AZ, 2012
updated on 09/09/2016

Probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Ridge's comment: “I changed banks in 2012, and a check from the trust account (client funds) mistakenly went out on the old account, causing an overdraft. The mistake was corrected immediately, but a State Bar audit did find other mistakes in my account reconciliations. No client funds were lost or taken, every client received all money due to them, no clients complained to the Bar about their money or the account, and the Bar did not find any selfish or dishonest motive in my actions.”
