Welcome to Law Offices of F. Richard Ricketts

The Law Offices of F. Richard Ricketts, PLLC is a law firm based in Tacoma, Washington and managed by Richard Ricketts, Attorney at Law.

Traditional Full Service Representation

We provide full service representation for most of our clients. This includes all of the traditional services that one would think when hiring an attorney, to include counseling, preparing pleadings, appearing in trial, conducting discovery, attending hearings, preparing for and attending trial.

Our difference from most other law firms lies in a basic premise that hiring an attorney should not cost tens of thousands of dollars. We assess each client at the first meeting and offer a discount off of our standard hourly rate based upon the income and household size of the client. Discounts apply to the nonrefundable retainer, the hourly rate and the trial retainer, and can run as high as 75% off of the hourly rate based upon the individual situation.
We also have a Military Appreciation Program which offers discounts of up to 75% depending upon pay grade and time in service.

Unbundled or Limited Legal Services and Coaching

For situations where full legal service may not be affordable, we provide “unbundled” or “limited” legal services online and via email. This provides you more limited access to the attorney but is perfect for those who cannot afford or do not want to pay the costs to retain the attorney, or where you have questions or need coaching to address a specific legal need.  The client will have access to the attorney, albeit more limited than in the full representation scenarior, and secure 24/7 access to your case status.  Consultation is available via web cam, over the phone or by secure client login, and at our offices in Tacoma, Washington.

Accessing Online Legal Services is Easy!  Here’s how it works:

All clients have access to the online platform gives you 24/7 real time access to a secure private account where the client can view  files, monitor updates, status changes, and charges.
