Personalized legal services for real estate investors, developers, brokers and agents, contractors, homeowners, lenders, and others in the real estate industry. This is a personal webpage, which is not affiliated with any firm or legal organization.
Even as a teenager, Rick opened every newspaper to the real estate section first.
He’s still passionate about the industry today because he recognizes that real estate is at the core for most people and for every city. For many, a home is their largest and most significant investment. For others, real estate is one of the best ways to gain wealth through investing. Commercial developers help shape the environment we live in by attracting new businesses that strengthen local communities. Contractors renovate old, dated properties, restoring their value and improving neighborhoods.
Rick’s focus on and commitment to real estate makes him the attorney of choice for mid-sized investors, contractors and commercial developers. Having personally invested in real estate and as a regular attendee at Kansas City-area real estate investor meetings and events, Rick is familiar with the unique challenges industry professionals face. This understanding allows him to provide his clients the best and most practical solutions to their issues, taking both legal and non-legal factors into consideration.
“Often, the best solutions are not the most expensive or legally intensive options,” Rick said. “By recognizing what could be, rather than just what needs to be done, I deliver creative solutions that create win-wins so all parties can move on with business.”
Besides being acknowledged by clients for his in-depth real estate experience, Rick has been recognized by the legal industry at a far earlier stage in his career than is typical. In 2019, he was named an associate fellow in the Construction Lawyers Society of America. In 2017, he was named a fellow in the American Bar Foundation and also received Martindale-Hubbell’s AV rating, the highest granted under the 150-year-old rating system, which is considered the gold standard in attorney rankings.
Because Martindale-Hubbell’s assessments are based on other attorneys’ reviews – including those at the partner and managing partner levels across the country –Rick’s rating underscores the confidence clients place in him.
“Earning the respect of peers ensures a more productive working relationship with opposing attorneys,” Rick said. “For clients, this means legal solutions come more quickly and easily. The Martindale-Hubbell rating demonstrates that, based on the evaluation of other attorneys who know how to determine the effectiveness of legal work, clients can count on me to provide sound counsel and do what’s right for them.”
