Experience and Competence


Helping our clients through life's challenges

At Rice & Parr, we have over 30 years combined experience helping our clients through the most difficult times of their lives.  We practice according to a unique philosophy....the first job of an advocate is to be the most reasonable person in the room - to provide competent and timely counseling and understanding that the first answer should not be to file a lawsuit.  While we are more than ready to aggressively represent you in Court if the need arises, we endeavor to resolve issues without protracted litigation whenever possible.  Whether your legal matter requires sound advice and counseling or an experienced courtroom litigator, we stand ready to assist you.

Areas of Practice

Real Estate

At Rice & Parr, we have over 30 years combined experience with Real Estate, representing both large companies and individual homeowners.  Whether you need representation on a multi-million dollar commercial or development venture, or a closing attorney for your first home purchase, we have the knowledge and experience to serve your needs.

Wills, estates, & probate

The death of a family member can be a trying time, and we know that you should be able to grieve and not spend your time mired in the inevitable difficulties of an estate.  When you need representation for your Probate matter, whether an estate, a guardianship or other probate matter, we have the experience and understanding to make the process as smooth as possible.


We understand how contentious divorce and related legal matters can be.  The lack of competent representation can lead to issues that are much more difficult to resolve in the future.  Whether you need aggressive representation in a contested divorce or custody matter, or someone to navigate you through the system in an uncontested divorce, we work closely with our clients to help them get through what may be the most challenging times of their lives.

Contracts & business Organization

Whether you need a contract, a formation of a new business or require assistance with existing business issues, or need to collect a debt, we are here to provide you with prompt and professional service to achieve your goals.  We realize that some financial transactions are complicated and may require navigation of seemingly unforgiving bureaucratic rules and regulations.  Let us help.


Being involved in an auto accident and filing your auto accident claims can be a daunting experience that can drastically change your life within seconds.  An auto accident can cause debilitating physical injuries, emotional trauma, and costly property damage. A serious auto accident injury that prevents you from returning to your job (or that limits the number of hours you can work) can be financially devastating.  A lawyer from our firm can help you find peace of mind after your accident so that you can move forward with your life.

Criminal Defense

If you are charged with a crime, you need immediate and aggressive representation.  Do not wait until after you have made a statement to the police to call.  In criminal law, proper counsel is necessary from the outset of your case.  Call early and get assistance from our knowledgeable staff, which includes a former military prosecutor with over 15 years experience in criminal cases.


“For there is but one essential justice which cements society, and one law which establishes this justice. This law is right reason, which is the true rule of all commandments and prohibitions. Whoever neglects this law, whether written or unwritten, is necessarily unjust and wicked.”
— Marcus Tullius Cicero
