Your life could change with Rick as your Attorney!!!!
Listen up, my story could change your life.
I had reached an overwhelming moment of despair. An ugly divorce from a physically abusive husband, who had convinced me to give up my career and be a stay at home mom, ultimately drove me from my home. The whole divorce process was manipulated because he withheld and hid my money and property. Without funds, I could not obtain adequate representation. To say I took a beating is an understatement. All contacts after the divorce were battles. Ultimately, my X entrapped me with the local Barny Fife Police Department when I let him know we were coming over to pickup a necklace for my son. He frantically called 911 claiming I was beating on windows, verbally abusing him and treating him bodily harm, even before I arrived. I had just pulled up and was still sitting in the car with my son, when a Nassau Bay Police officer arrived and proceeded to pull me from the car, cuffed me and charged me with two felonies. No witnesses, just my X's word. Guess it helps to be bud's with the mayor.
Having no money, I was in a spot. I finally had a recommendation to my first attorney, who said he would take my case, but wanted all his fees up-front. I sold personal property and paid him everything I could afford to start the case. He then would not return calls, nor make time to discuss the case and always rushing away after court. Finally had to fire him, because all he would do was reset my case. When I obtained my file from him, the only things in it were green slips. NOTHING else. Next up was a public defender. My only advise is: DON'T. I don't have time, I don't believe you and why don't you take the plea bargain were her only don't of wisdoms. Leaving court for the last time with the don't woman, I by chance ran into Rick Oliver in the lobby. I had known him as a child and instantly recognized him. As we talked, we discussed why I was there and what was happening. He immediately took interest. He asked questions and asked if my present attorneys had done any of several things he offered. The answers were all no, they had not done any of those things. He was very generous with his time and very perceptive in his questions. Finally he told me he would be willing to help if he could. I got a loan from my parents and hired him immediately.
Working with Rick was a dream come true. He is smart. He is kind. And he was interested in the case and willing to stand up for me when no one else would. Every time we talked, he had new information and new perspective. He did the research and he investigated. And he investigated. And he investigated. Every time he talked to the DA, he was tearing down their case. If my X and his lawyer had not been continually pushing the DA's office, I believe the case would have been dropped. But he did and they didn't.
Finally we got to court. The last offer of a plea bargain, the last chance before trial. Rick and I reviewed all the facts. We talked. He shared more findings he had just uncovered. His empathy and professionalism were outstanding. I really trusted him with my life. With a deep breath I said, let's go to trial, no deal. Back in the courtroom, he went straight to the attorney for the DA and got busy. He talked and pointed. He got animated. More attorneys. More talking. Finally to the clerk and called me back to the conference room. I was breathless. With the most beautiful smile I ever seen, he said, all charges DISMISSED.
I would use Rick and recommend him to everyone I know in need of an AWESOME Attorney. In Fact I have asked Rick to partner on my Family case (even though he does not practice family law) because I believe in him with all my heart.
Thank you Rick. You truly did save my life.
REGARDING: "YOUR LIBERTY" & JUSTICE
To all who read this: I am that Man, Mr. Rick Oliver Defended!
On this day, September 25, 2013, I awake at my home, under my own roof, ABLE TO WRITE THIS "TRUE REVIEW", FOR ONLY 2 REASONS.
Because I followed my convictions of defending myself in a trial that took 2 years to come, knowing I WAS INNOCENT!
RICK OLIVER ATTORNEY AT LAW; WHO PREPARED A CASE IN MY DEFENSE, USING ALL HIS RESOURCES OF INFORMATION, AND WHO STOOD IN OPEN COURT FOR 2 DAYS, AND I HEARD THIS MAN POUND THE LAW INTO A PANEL OF OVER 55 JUROR PICKS, AND "WON THEIR ADMIRATION FOR "KNOWING THE LAW", THEIR EYES WERE RIVETED ON HIM, AND THEY HUNG ONTO HIS WORDS, AND THE TRIAL HADN'T EVEN STARTED YET! THEN HE HAND PICKED A JURY WITH AT LEAST 4-5 PICKS THAT WE WOULD HAVE WANTED ON A 12 PERSON JURY, AND ON THE 2ND DAY... MR. RICK OLIVER, (WHO'S EARNED THE RIGHT) TO BE CALLED, "THE LITIGATOR!" (NOT JUST, A DAMN GOOD LAWYER). IT'S LIKE HE WAS MADE FOR THAT COURTROOM. I WATCHED HIM STAND BETWEEN ME & THE STATE OF TEXAS, LIKE A PITBULL, DELIVERING POINT AFTER POINT TO THE JURY, BREAKING THE PROSECUTION DOWN, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, MAKING THE JURORS TAKE NOTICE AND SEE THAT THEIR WAS NO CASE, AND IT WAS WRONG TO CONVICT ME , THAT I WAS NOT THE MAN WHICH SHOULD BE ACCUSED. AND NOT ONLY DID HE SAY "I WAS INNOCENT" HE MADE THE PERSON WHO BROUGHT THE CHARGES AGAINST ME, LOOK TOTALLY UN-RELIABLE ON THE STAND... HE TORE HIM TO SHREDS ON THE WITNESS STAND, MAKING THE JURORS SIT UP AND TAKE NOTE.
RICK OLIVER, POINTED OUT THE FACTS ON EACH POINT, DELIVERING A STUNNING BLOW TO THE PROSECUTION WHO WANTED TO PAINT ME AS A CRIMINAL.... THEY HAD ME HOG TIDED AND OFFERED ME AT LEAST 4 DIFFERENT PLEA BARGAINS OVER 2 YEARS, THINKING THEY'D USED MY PAST HISTORY TO SCARE ME INTO TAKING A PLEA OFFER; AND THAT I'D GO AWAY, FOR SOMETHING I DID NOT DO; I DID NOT GO!
IN A CASE THAT HAD GONE TO TRIAL BEFORE & WAS DISMISSED AND RE-FILED,,,RICK OLIVER; "THE LITIGATOR" OF THE LAW, STOOD UP AGAIN FOR ME, WHEN THIS WAS REFILED OVER 1 YEAR AGO, AND SAID,,, TO THE PROSECUTION.... NO DEAL,,,, WE'RE GOING TO TRIAL! WE'RE GOING TO TRIAL!
UNTIL YESTERDAY... I DIDN'T KNOW HOW MUCH FEAR COULD BE STRUCK INTO A 50 YEAR OLD MAN'S HEART, WHEN 12 PEOPLE WHO HELD MY FAITH WITHIN THEIR HANDS WALKED OFF, AND BEGAN TO DECIDE IF I WOULD GO HOME, OR GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL FROM THE COURT ROOM FOR 6 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS... BUT... I NEW ONE THING... THAT I HAD MY DAY IN COURT, AND I HAD HIRED THE BEST DAMN LAWYER IN TEXAS FOR THIS CASE...
I HAD VISTED WITH MR. OLIVER AS THE 4TH ATTORNEY OUT OF 5. EVERY OTHER ATTORNEY I VISTED BOASTED SOMEWHAT BY USING THEIR OFFICE TO SHOW FANCY PLAQUES ON THE WALLS, HUGE PIECES WHICH STOOD ON THE FLOOR OF LADY LIBERTY, AND SHINY SUITS WITH $300.00 NECKTIES, AND WINGTIP SHOES... NOT RICK OLIVER... I OPENED HIS DOOR TO FIND A PLAIN WHITE SHIRT MAN, NO JACKET AT THE TIME, SLEEVES ROLLED UP, NO CUFF LINKS; JUST AN EAR THAT LISTENED TO ME, TELL HIM MY SIDE... THEN, LETTING ME KNOW WHAT WAS AT STAKE IF WE GO ALL THE WAY; A TRIAL.... I SAID I WAS READY; LITTLE DID I KNOW HOW MUCH DEEP DOWN IN SIDE, I WASN'T. BUT AS RICK WORKED THE CASE; I REALIZED, I DIDN'T HAVE JUST ANY LAWYER... I HAD A PITBULL! I NOTICED; HIS DEFENSE OF ME, HE TOOK ALMOST PERSONAL...FROM HIS BELIEF IN ME, AND THAT THE CASE AGAINST ME WAS VERY MUCH SO RIDDLED WITH MISTAKES.
IN THE CASE OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF, A FELONY, WHEREBY THE STATE VS. OLIVER GABRIEL, “WE THE JURY FIND HIM "NOT GUILTY!" MY FAITH IN THE HANDS OF 12 PEOPLE WAS NOT DECIDED BY LUCK... I KNEW MR. OLIVER HAD GIVING ME THE BEST CHANCE TO SUCCEED AGAINST THE STATE OF TEXAS, AND DEFENDED ME, .
Heck, Even the Judge Complimented Him saying, Thank you, for having your case heard in my courtroom, "AND, THANK YOU FOR HANDLING YOUR BUSINESS!"
RICK OLIVER, A MAN TO TRUST!
My first DWI was 20 years ago but apparently still counted against me; my second was in the first part of 2011 and was such a sham that Rick tore their case to shreds. NEVER BLOW folks, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!!!!! Would recommend Rick to anyone alive who needed a good attorney.
There are no words to explain how hardworking and incredibly talented Mr. Oliver is. I was involved in an accident and then arrested for a DWI back in October. I blew a .19 at the station but my video did not reflect such results. Rick spent so much time on my case and knew it in and out. My case went to trial and when I saw Rick in action I could not have been more proud that he was my lawyer. He showed the jury all the holes in my investigation and on the second day of the trial the prosecutor knew they were in such a deep hole, they dismissed my case. Throughout the seven months I worked with Rick, he always kept me updated and answered my millions of questions. I will most definitely recommend him to everyone who needs a hardworking, honest and determined attorney.
I was involved in a car accident and as a result of that I was arrested for a DUI. The arresting officer took me to station and I was given a breath test out of a suitcase looking bag.,I blew a .21 . My case was so difficult my video did not match the breath test results Rick showed how it was not possible for me at 100 pounds to possibly blow that high and stand as straight as I did. After hours of research he found out that the breathilizer was taken out of use and the officer was fired. If he didnt go the extra mile and take the time to go over every detail and push for information that was being with held my case wouldn't have gone so good. In the end of it all he completley destroyed the prosecutors case. I truly belive that with out Rick and his knowledge I wouldn't have been so happpy with the outcome. I will recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.
I have had Rick help me with two DWI's. I have worked with multiple attorney in the past for a variety of issues, some of far greater risk than a DWI. I can say that out of all of the attorneys I am more impressed with the representation Rick provided in spite of not receiving the verdict I wished for. The video evidence was unfortunately very detrimental but at least I tried. I don't think there was a single thing we could have done better. Rick even went to the seen of the incident and document all possible intersections and proved the police report falsely stated the number of stop signs ran. I had paid Rick a very reasonable fee in full up front. In spite of the long pretrial and trial he fought very hard to the end. He definitely fights to win; not billable hours. His knowledge of the law was impeccable. His persistence and relentless fight was impressive. I feel very glad I fought the charge even though I did not win. I think Ricks valiant fight actually helped me get better terms after I lost than where offered before trial. I will definitely have Rick represent me in the future if he will take my case.
An Attorney friend refereed me to Rick K. Oliver for a DWI case. I was lucky to talk to him right away as he encouraged me to go get my own toxicity scan as I had just gotten out of jail. I of course refused to let the police administer a test so this was very quick thinking to show I did not have illegal drugs in my system. He was very informative when I talked to him and he explained the law far more thoroughly when I talked to him than even the established DWI attorneys. I decided to hire Rick Oliver and it was the best decision I made recently. I was really rude to the cops that stopped me cause I was obviously pissed off. This was quite apparent on the tape and report. He still managed to get the case dismissed. After watching the tape myself I have to say he is worth 10 times what he charges.
Rick Oliver was a godsend. After my arrest for DWI, I had little money and absolutely no knowledge of the legal proceedings I was facing. Rick changed all that and worked with me despite my financial issues and still kept me very will informed with all aspects of my case. Rick made sure I knew all my legal rights and fought to ensure I was still afforded them. At every hearing, Rick was always very punctual and always had new information to pass on to me about my case. Any questions or concerns that I had were easily answered and addressed by Rick. I would strongly recommend Rick Oliver to anyone.
I would have to say I have never been more blessed than having the opportunity to meet Mr. Oliver, he represented my sons Jeffrey and Mikell on different offenses and I had very little money, not only did he agree to represent them and work out payment plans he kept us informed on what could happen as well as the current situation, he is currently representing my son Jeffrey on a separate charge, and I have to say he's fighting very hard for him. Under normal circumstances I would have expected another attorney to take me to the bank but he was very considerate of the situation I was in. I would recommend Mr. Oliver to anyone that is in need of representation in whatever the case may be, not only is he considerate, he is caring and is always looking for the best interest of his clients. My family is truly blessed to have him our side and fighting for us especially when the charges are completed false. If I, or anyone I know are ever in need of someone who believes and has the clients best interest at heart that person would definitely be Mr. Richard K. Oliver.
In my field of business Ive met alot of attorneys over the years and I can't think of anyone more diligent or that works harder for their clients than Rick does His knowledge of case law is most impressive as well as his ability to negotiate the most favorable courtroom conditions for his client. It gave me great pleasure to watch him attack the prosecutions case from every angle and never blink throughout the process. His courtroom ledership, legal intellect and winning attitude make him one of the finest defense attorney's in town and I beleive that he gives defendants the best chance for success. Thank you Rick!!
Rick is honest and will fight for his clients. If I ever needed an attorney I would re-hire Rick and refer him to all my friends. If you ever need someone that is really in your corner and not just trying to collect your money Rick is the lawyer for you
Rick worked two misdemeanor drug cases in two counties at the same time for my son. If it wasn’t for Rick my son would have been put on probation or worse sent to county jail. My sons military future would have been no more. Because of Rick’s determination my son proudly serves his country and learned valuable lesson, stay away from drugs. We owe Rick everything for the job he did. He never offered false hope and he investigated every aspect of the case on his own. He found information that really helped save my son from a guilty plea or verdict.
You wanna waste my time? Okay. I call my lawyer. He's the best lawyer in Houston. He's such a good lawyer, that by tomorrow morning, you gonna be working in Alaska. So dress warm.
I don’t even know where to start, on how much appreciation that I have for Rick Oliver and his staff for the outstanding job that they did with my case, within the first day of court I walked into court with two felonies and walked out with one felony to be dropped to a misdemeanor as the case continued my second felony got dismissed, really all I can say is that him and his staff really know what they’re doing and do amazing work that you would not be disappointed having him on your side, and truthfully would not want anybody else on my side but him and his staff, I’m extremely glad and thankful that he took my case!
Rick Oliver is an excellent Attorney, he showed up everytime, he was straight forward and very professional. I was in a state of confussion about the outcome of my case and I didn't want to loose my freedom. When it was all said and done Rick walked into the court room very confident and got my case Dismissed. I definitely will keep him as a personal Attorney. I am forever thankful and I highly recommend Rick.
