This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Do NOT hire this attorney!
This attorney represented me in a land dispute with my deceased girlfriend’s son. I was under the impression that I could live on her property even after she passed because of a verbal agreement with her. Her son was listed as executor of her will, and she had transferred the deeds to the property and trailer into his name a couple months before she passed away of cancer. This I did not know. I hired this attorney because the son told me he was selling the place and that I had to leave. Joanne Rick assured me that the deed had been improperly filed and that I was legally entitled to the estate because of it. I’m not legally smart, so I believed her council. When it finally went to court, and thousands of dollars later, this attorney was reprimanded for bringing the case in the first place because the deed and will were legally filed and completed properly by my girlfriend and her son’s death and estate attorney. Joann Comins Rick was informed of this by certified mail but she had completely ignored it and kept the case going with continuances and delays, and soaking me the whole ride! I didn’t even know about this until the judge heard the case! The judge, after reviewing the other attorney’s case for the son, agreed and ordered that Joanne Rick and I pay the son’s legal fees for bringing a frivolous lawsuit!! My lawyer should have known better and counseled me the same legally. She was informed the other party legally owned the property and should have not brought the lawsuit. I was then am now livid! I still can’t believe it, and in hind sight, I truly believe she continued the legal proceedings after being informed by the other attorney by certified mail, in order to soak me for more money. DO NOT USE OR HIRE this attorney!! I’m not paying her a dime, because I’m broke, but also because I’m not legally obligated to after the ruling of a frivolous lawsuit. Thank God the son agreed not to extend the case with more court dates and agreed to settle with me leaving the property after losing. Thanks for NOTHING Joanne...

Disappopinted Divorcee
My divorce proceedings were started over 2 years ago. It is still not complete. Joanne has charged me approx $10,000 to handle the dissolution,. There has been no follow through and the settlement attained was far less than it should have been. My savings is gone and I am still struggling to pay for more "misc." charges that keep coming.

Broke and Disappointed
This attorney took over 6,000.00 of my money , which was 1,500.00 over the amount she told me would be the MOST it would cost me. Paid in full last July (2008) It is now nine months after the final day in court where I was granted a divorce and STILL no final papers. This attorney will not return a call, or answer an email, and according to her secretary Monica who I spoke to just 1 hour ago, my signed paperwork is STILL just laying on attorney's desk. I became quite fed up over all of this a few months ago and threatened to report her to the bar association. This did get a response from her office in the form of billing me an additional almost 900.00 for (so called) additional services rendered. In my opinion, especially to those people who need a divorce and have limited finances, find someone other than this one to represent you. If this could happen to me it could happen to you too.
