Estate Planning . Real Estate . Business Law

Welcome to the LAW OFFICES OF RICK ADDICKS. I draft wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and advance health care directives, handle real estate matters and transactions, negotiate contracts, assist with probate and trust administrations, set up businesses, and otherwise serve my clients' legal needs.

I am an attorney, a real estate broker, and a notary public. I grew up in San Francisco and Marin, and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, with distinction, in 1988. I then went to law school at the University of San Francisco, where I served as Articles Editor of the U.S.F. Law Review and graduated with a Juris Doctorate, cum laude, in 1992. Following law school, I clerked for United States Magistrate Judge Wayne D. Brazil, and worked with the Federal Public Defender in Oakland, California, before beginning my solo practice in 1997.

Not your ordinary attorney, I also serve as a full-time Fire Captain with the Ross Valley Fire Department, serving the Towns of San Anselmo, Fairfax, and Ross, and unincorporated Sleepy Hollow, California, am an active member of the Marin County Urban Search and Rescue Team - Regional Task Force 1 and California OES Swift Water Flood Rescue Team 11, serve on the North Bay Regional Critical Incident Stress Management Team and as a founding co-chair of the Marin County Peer Support Team, and until recently, sat on the executive board of IAFF Local 1775, Marin Professional Firefighters.

My community service has spanned from pro bono legal work for local environmental causes to international human rights work for unlawfully imprisoned monks and nuns in Tibet.

I have traveled the world extensively, have two wonderful children, and love to camp, surf, sail, and play guitar whenever time permits.

If you have any questions, or if I may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
