Criminal Law

Criminal cases should be examined on their own merits. Rick works closely with clients to determine their goals and concerns. By working together, we give our clients their best chance at getting their life back on track. We have the trial skills and dedication to help you navigate the criminal justice system.

Personal Injury

An injured person may file suit against the negligent party to recover all of their damages. These usually include property damage, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income and earning potential.

Criminal Appeals

A criminal conviction can be subject to reversal for any number of reasons. Often, the issues that could lead to reversal are nuanced legal issues, that can only be identified by an experienced professional.

White Collar Crime

"White Collar Crimes" can refer to any number of potential criminal offenses. Generally, though, it refers to workplace offenses, that often involve a breach of fiduciary trust.

Rick Oliver Law Firm

 Rick was licensed to practice law in the state of Texas in 2007, and began his solo practice on June 1, 2008. He did not come from a family of wealth or of lawyers.

When Rick started, he did not know a single attorney–let alone a criminal defense attorney–in the City of Houston. Rick built the foundation of a successful practice, with little more than a code book, and a can-do attitude. 

Why Choose Our Firm

In Law, Competence is Second to None

Experience

In 2016, less than seven years after becoming licensed, Rick was certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in his practice area of Criminal Law. His practice is almost entirely dedicated to criminal trial and appellate law. Rick writes extensively and has been published in various forums across the state.

Credentials

Out of 70,000 attorneys in the State of Texas, less than 7,000 are board certified. The Texas Bar has estimated that only 10 percent of all Texas Bar members achieve this important distinction. But, lawyers can seek board certification in a number of different practice areas. As of 2016, there were only 842 lawyers IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS who are Board Certified in Criminal Law.

Review Your Case

All initial consultations are risk-free and at no cost to you. It is recommended that Rick give your case a second look, so that you know all the options available.

What Our Clients Say

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, pointed, and got animated. More attorneys. More talking. Finally, the clerk called me back to the conference room. I was breathless. With the most beautiful smile I've ever seen, he said, all charges DISMISSED.

Rick Oliver's Client
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. He still kept me very well 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 he always had new information to pass on to me about my case. Any questions or concerns that I had were easily answered. I would strongly recommend Rick Oliver to anyone.

Rick Oliver's Client
An Attorney friend refereed me to Rick K. Oliver for a DWI case. I was lucky to talk to him right away. 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 well established DWI attorneys. Then 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, because 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.
