Mr. Rickman has handled several cases for me during the past two years. He has a personable character, direct approach with articulate delivery, and never leaves his client in the dark. He knows law and predicts the outcome; before court, a client can feel an ease and sense of knowing Anthony Rickman will be by your side and never mislead you–if leading anywhere, it’s to a WIN/DISMISSAL! If you must invest in an attorney, Mr. Rickman is worth it again and again. I will and do continue to recommend him to friends
I hired Mr. Rickman for 3 felony counts in which I was facing very serious repercussions. Through the whole case Mr. Rickman did a very good job of explaining things to me, giving me updates and keeping me calm. Not only did Mr. Rickman succeed in getting my charges dropped but he was also able to make me feel comfortable throughout the whole very scary process. I would recommend him to anyone and I am grateful for his services.

A good start. THAT’S WHAT I BELIEVED UNTIL I MET AND HIRED MR. RICKMAN. I AM 64 YEARS OLD AND HAD HIRED MANY ATTORNEYS OVER THE YEARS FOR ALL SORTS OF CIVIL AND CRIMINAL MATTERS. I WAS ALWAYS OVERPROMISED AND UNDERDELIVERED. THE PAST ATTORNEYS NEVER FOLLOWED THE GAME PLAN FOR THE CASES AS NEEDED.
ANTHONY RICKMAN APPROACHED MY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASE WITH THE SECURED FACTS, CAME UP WITH A DEFENSE THAT HE FELT WAS THE BEST FOR MY SITUATION AND NEVER WAVERED FROM THE GAME PLAN TO MAKE HIS LIFE EASIER OR TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK. HE TOOK MY INTEREST AS PARAMOUNT AND CHARGED FORWARD RELENTLESSLY. HE FOLLOWED THE GAME PLAN WITHOUT ANY CHANGE OF COURSE.
ANTHONY, BECAUSE OF HIS KNOWLEDGE AND PERSONAL ETHICS, NEVER MADE A PROMISE OF OUTCOME BUT PROMISED TO APPROACH THIS CASE FROM ONE DIRECTION. HE GOT ME RELEASED IN UNDER 24 HOUR ON MY OWN RECOGNIZANCE, AND CHARGES DROPPED BEFORE THE ARRAIGNMENT. I BELIEVE THAT MR. RICKMAN AND HIS STAFF TO BE THE BEST THAT I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN MY 64 YEARS.
I am a middle aged professional who was arrested in an aggressive sting operation. I was charged with two misdemeanors. This was my first arrest and I am not from Tampa. Saying this, I had absolutely no idea who to call. The morning after the arrest I researched defense attorneys and leaned heavily on reviews while making my decision. I am happy that I found many reviews on this site and that I hired Anthony. Anthony and Holli were absolute professionals and were very proactive with my case.
During my initial conversation with Anthony, he listened to my account and quickly communicated two defense positions. Upon further conversations he predicted the outcome of my case. Rightfully so, he was careful to preface his prediction upon my account of the events being true, but he was confident in his position. He backed up his prediction with legal precedent and his experience in similar cases. His confidence was not fabricated… it was the confidence that comes with years of experience in the court room.
I hired Anthony that morning and he entered a formal “not guilty” plea within 15 minutes. Later that day he proactively notified the states attorney office that he wanted to speak with them before assigning my case. Later that same week he had a call with states attorney office and spent more than an hour with the attorney who was responsible for assigning my case to a prosecuting attorney. Anthony communicated a three page case study supporting our defense. This step was not successful and they ultimately assigned my case to a prosecutor… however, Anthony’s argument was elevated to a supervisor and set the record that we were prepared to aggressively defend our position. I firmly believe that this first week of a well thought out, proactive and aggressive defense set the ultimate dismissal of my charges into motion.
The case was ultimately assigned and Anthony gave me a short list of information to provide. I did this and Anthony did the rest. I never even went to court.
In short, after 60 days of waiting and having my case shuffled to three different prosecuting attorneys, Anthony was successful in securing an unconditional dismissal of the first charge, and a conditional dismissal of the second charge.
I am now 45 days into a 90 day conditional period for the second charge. I already satisfied very manageable conditions and am simply waiting for the 90 day period to end. At this time, Anthony and Holli will expunge the charges from my record once and for all!
• I am a professional person that was charged with two misdemeanors as part of an aggressive sting.
• 90 days later the charges have been dismissed and I am 45 days away from having my record expunged.
• I am 100% confident that I am in this position because I hired Anthony.
On a personal note, Anthony and Holli treated me with respect and dignity. They did not cast judgment and focused on the task at hand. I paid for a professional defense and they supplied a professional defense, prompt communication, dignity and a dismissal of the charges. I could not be more satisfied.
I went into this “thinking” that I made the right choice. Now, with the benefit of hindsight… I “know” that I made the right choice.
If you need a defense attorney… you need to hire Anthony. Period.
Mr. Rickman is an outstanding criminal lawyer. He was able to get a great outcome on my case. In the courtroom Mr. Rickman had excelent arguments, was extremely confident, and knew the law better than the judge. He kept me informed about my case and did a great job in representing me.
Two years ago my son was charged with Murder second degree. My family’s life changed in an instant. On a Saturday morning I was faced with the emergent task of trying to retain attorney services. I didn’t know what I was going to do, but I knew that my son needed to have representation ASAP. I prayed about the whole situation, and begged GOD for guidance, and then I made 30-40 calls. I was then challenged with many closed offices, and promises of return calls. within a few minutes of calling Rickman I received a return call. I told Rickman the story as it was told to me. On a Saturday morning before any payment was exchanged, he began to collect all the information that he could get from the witness, visited my son, and even went to the site of the shooting to understand all the events of our nightmare. I was provided his personal cell number and he constantly updated me with anything new on his case. I could go on forever as to how much assurance he continuously provided. The end result was jury trial with a NOT GUILTY verdict. I am eternally grateful. Rickman is tenacious, knowledgeable, eloquent, and a force to be reckoned with in the court room. He promised me that he would be able to look my son in the face, and with all honesty be able to say he did his best, and that is what we got . THE BEST!
I found myself pitted against my soon to be Ex-wife, and even worse her Deputy boyfriend. A total of 4 arrests over 9 months, and 10 different charges, all charges dropped and rightfully so. Need I say more?
