Charles "Chad" Rick was born and raised in Pottstown Pennsylvania. Both of his parents were hard working blue collared individuals who taught him his strong work ethic from an early age. He graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, concentrating in Management Information Systems. He earned his Juris Doctor from Loyola University, College of Law in New Orleans, Louisiana. He consistently worked full time jobs through college and law school so that he could pay his own way through school. Chad is the managing partner of Rick Law where he focuses on Property Assessment Appeals, Estate Planning and Administration , Civil Litigation and Small Business Representation.

Prior to attending law school, Attorney Rick worked primarily in sales. From selling Cutco knives door to door, to selling cell phones and then computers, Chad has done it all. The next logical step in his career was going to law school where he could sell to judges and juries, which drove him to the practice of law. Attorney Rick started working in the legal field as a file clerk for Jones, Walker, Waechter, Poitevent, Carrère & Denègre LLP, a large, widely-known law firm in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2006. During law school, he began working with Usry, Weeks & Matthews A.P.L.C. up until he graduated from Loyola University, College of Law in New Orleans, Louisiana. While in law school, Attorney Rick was a member of the Entertainment Law Journal and focused his studies on Intellectual Property, Mediation and Arbitration & Entertainment Law.

In 2009, he was blessed with the opportunity to work for a small solo practice in his home community of Pottstown honing his litigation skills while also working as a Special Assistant Public Defender with the Montgomery County Public Defender's office. He was later recruited to work at a well-established law firm in Reading, PA known as Roland Stock where he developed a successful family law practice and worked on personal injury and medical malpractice matters. In December of 2013, Attorney Rick returned to his home community, Pottstown, and founded RICK | LINN, LLC. Interestingly enough, in 2019, Rick Linn and Roland Stock came together and formed Rick Law.

Attorney Rick is a member of the State Bar of Pennsylvania and is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Eastern, Middle, and Western Districts of Pennsylvania. Attorney Rick has tried cases in state court, before administrative agencies, and before arbitration panels. He regularly appears before the local magisterial district courts as well as the Montgomery, Berks, and Chester County Courts of Common Pleas. Attorney Rick is also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States. Chad previously volunteered for several years with the VITA organization, a pro bono program that offered free tax preparation to low income families. He presently serves as the President of his homeowner's association, solicitor of several churches, and volunteers as the Judge of Elections in his local community.

Chad has been named to the prestigious "Top 40 under 40" by the American Society of Legal Advocates and has been recognized as a Who's Who Top Attorney of North America from 2018 - 2020. He has been recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in both 2019 and 2020. Chad has presented Estate Planning and Trust seminars to numerous large corporations and frequently presents at senior health and wellness events across several counties. When he is not working (which is rare), he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children and taking trips back to New Orleans and Nashville.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
