Meet our Team

Rickard & Associates, P.C. was founded by Lori-Ann Rickard after years in private practice at a large Detroit law firm, and eight years serving in-house as corporate counsel for the St. John Health System, a member of the largest Catholic Health system in the country, Ascension Health System.

Having experienced both sides of the attorney-client relationship, Rickard founded her firm on the premise that effective legal counsel is about helping clients reach intelligent, practical solutions that meet their unique needs, while focusing on the bottom line.  A tireless client advocate, Rickard has a team of attorneys and legal assistants who have both a passion for the law and an “it’s handled” attitude toward client service.

Understanding that the needs of our clients sometimes extend beyond the walls of our firm, our in-house team sits at the center of a vast network of legal specialists, expert witnesses and industry professionals throughout the country who can be called upon at a moment’s notice to assist on a matter.  This structure allows us to combine the personal attention and definitive advice that you would expect in the best small firms, with a depth of knowledge and specialty services that rivals most large firms.
