Summary

It is difficult to predict professional career is going to take you, but a review of my past indicates I was always headed towards forming Rick Davis Legal.  Instead of heading straight to college after high school, I spent time managing and owning restaurants and bars and continued in this area until after graduating from law school.  When I decided to return to college, I ended up at the University of Kansas where I spent as much time much time in the school of business as I did working on my political science major.

It was law school when I first developed my passion for real estate, and particularly real estate investing.  At the beginning of the summer prior to my first year, my wife and I decided to purchase a foreclosed home that we would fix up and live in during law school.  We had anticipated the project to be finished by the start of classes, but unexpected surprises - like discovering that trash had been thrown into all of the air conditioning vents and plumbing issues that were discoverable only after the drywall was removed -- extended the project significantly beyond our initial timeline.  We transitioned to landlords when I moved to Florida to help start a firm formed by a partner from my previous law firm and my wife and I experienced the challenges of insurance claims when the same house burned down while we were still living halfway across the country.

All of these experiences and more have come together to help form Rick Davis Legal and the best part of my practice is that I am able to combine my entrepreneurial spirit, interest in real estate, and the law into a job where I enjoy walking into the office each and every morning.  Moreover, the freedom that comes from working for myself provides me the flexibility to slip out of the office for one of my three children's preschool recital and to ensure that I am able to balance the challenging work-life demands of being a lawyer.
