My inspiration as an attorney comes from my grandfather, an old school solo practitioner who treated his clients and adversaries with the utmost professionalism and respect. 

Before joining Reminger in 1980 as a law clerk, Rick earned an economics degree and worked at a major accounting firm. He leveraged his business experience in building a practice devoted to the defense of both medical and non-medical professionals. Rick has tried more than 100 first chair jury trials and has focused his practice on litigation involving:

  • Medical and Dental Liability
  • Commercial Liability
  • Professional Liability
  • General Liability

In addition, Rick devotes substantial efforts to advising businesses and healthcare professionals on a wide variety of issues. He is a regular speaker not only at risk management programs for physicians, dentists and allied health professionals, but also at the Case School of Dental Medicine, where he serves as Assistant Professor.

Rick is a member of the Grace Hospital Board of Directors. Within the firm, Rick serves as the Co-Chair of the Dental Liability practice group. An officer of the corporation, he also is on Reminger's Executive, Management and Marketing Committees, and the Board of Directors. Rick played a significant role in establishing the Reminger Foundation, a 501(C)(3) charity which supports worthwhile causes in the communities where Reminger employees and clients live and work.  He offers his ongoing guidance to the rotating Board of Directors of the Reminger Foundation charity.
