My name is Rick Morin and I am an attorney with a successful law practice in Sacramento.
My practice is based upon an unrelenting desire to assist individuals and business owners with challenging legal issues.
My staff and I dedicate ourselves to providing world-class customer service. Hiring an attorney and going through a lawsuit, bankruptcy or other legal matter can be daunting. Starting with me, my whole team will do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible.
I also make a promise to all of my clients and prospective clients: when you call my office, I will always be available to talk. If I'm not available because of court or meetings, I will call you back as soon as possible. I don't just take your money and then hide behind layers of assistants. That's just wrong.
I grew up in Fair Oaks and attended local schools. I earned my undergraduate degree from California State University, Sacramento and I received my juris doctor degree, with distinction, from the University of Pacific McGeorge School of Law. I am proud to say that I passed the California bar exam on my first try.
While my practice is based here in Sacramento, I am licensed to practice in all California courts. As an example, I have handled litigation in the Orange County Superior Court and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. I also practice frequently in the United States Bankruptcy Courts in Sacramento and Modesto.
Giving back to the community is important to me. I volunteer at the bankruptcy help desk at the United States Bankruptcy Court. I also take select cases on a pro-bono basis. My blog provides excellent legal tips to consumers and business owners.
