Philip Daniel Ricker grew up on the wooden pews of courtrooms throughout West Texas. Phil continues the family tradition begun by his mother, a renowned trial lawyer in West Texas, of practicing family law. Phil knows how turbulent family law cases are and prides himself on his ability to guide individuals through this difficult time while fiercely advocating for them in the courtroom.
Phil played collegiate football for Southwestern University, graduating in 2016, with a degree in psychology. He understands how human behavior interacts with the law and affects negotiations and the Judge’s perception of your case. Phil honed his trial skills at the number one trial advocacy program in the United States, Baylor Law School’s Practice Court Program. He graduated from Baylor Law magna cum laude and was honored with a Leadership Development Fellowship.
Phil has extensive litigation knowledge and experience. Phil assisted his mother in trial even before being a licensed attorney where she taught him how to break-down the issues in a case and evaluate it from every angle. Phil works as both a trial litigator and appellate attorney.
