My husband and I retained Ms. Rickard on the recommendation of a friend. It turned out to be a one of the best choices I've ever made with regards to selecting an attorney. Ms. Rickard is a no-nonsense, keenly perceptive council. Her experience in the criminal courts, and more importantly, her professional contacts within the system itself proved to be highly effective and invaluable to us. Her rates are completely reasonable and I've never encountered an attorney who was mindful and even prudent about 'spending' our retainer. She listened and offered a clear strategy on how she planned to handle our case--and then followed through. I've retained 6 attorneys within the last 10 years, and while some of them were very good, none of them surpasses Stephanie. I recommend her services without reservation.

Stephanie Rickard is the best criminal attorney in Santa Clara County.
Stephanie represented me in four felony cases; she is professional, honest, and very thorough. I would not use anyone but Stephanie.
Stephanie was highly recommended to me and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney.

Stephanie is the most compassionate, genuine and reliable criminal attorney in the Santa County with high level of experience and expertise in dealing with the most complicated cases in the best possible manner. We are so very grateful to her for rescuing us from the DV nightmare we passed through recently. My husband and I are blessed to have her by our side. We would recommend her to any one suffering from a legal despair and not knowing whom to approach. She is the most reasonable and undoubtedly the best in bay area.
A Very Thankful Client-Couple (B & M)

Stephanie has been truly helpful in helping my mother with her case. She took the time and effort to understand the detail and responded to her inquiries promptly and thoroughly. Also, we are very impressed with her communication skill and the level of professionalism she presented throughout the case and highly recommend her service to everyone.

Ms. Rickard is the absolute consumate professional, and without question the most thorough, personable, knowledgeable, and results-oriented attorney I have ever worked with. Her accessibility, concern, and follow-through are just a few of her many strong attributes as both a wonderful person and as an outstanding attorney.

My son was foolish and drove while under the influence and hit a car. We hired a different lawyer first and this was a disaster. Stephanie took over the case and got the best result possible in a fast and professional manner. Very happy we found her and for the results she produced.

I was a client approx 3 months ago. I am a retired attorney and know the qualities of an outstanding criminal law attorney - intelligence, a keen ability to apply the facts to the law, a special insight into human nature, and far reaching contacts in the legal field. In my situation, Ms. Rickard fulfilled all of the above criteria and then some. Also, her fees are very reasonable and she returns phone calls promptly.

Stephanie Rickard shows a true interest in her client's well-being and legal rights. I have had other attorneys defend me, but none of them came close to her level of combined professionalism, attention to detail and confidence-building trust. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a strong advocate in court.
