Biography

Rick Davis graduated from Texas A&M University class of ‘85 where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering. While at Texas A&M University, he was a member of the Fight'n Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets and, upon graduation, was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. After becoming a qualified Infantry Officer, he served for ten years in the 49th Armored Division of the Texas Army National Guard as a qualified Armor Officer. Rick made Company Commander of an M-1 Tank Company while still a 1st Lieutenant.

While serving in the Texas Army National Guard, raising a family and working at NASA, Rick attended the University of Houston - Bates Law Center. He sat for the Bar exam early, and while still in law school, received both his law degree and law license in May 1992. Upon becoming licensed to practice law, he initially practiced with a prominent Bryan law firm. He then started his own law practice in 1995 and quickly established himself as an aggressive and strategic lawyer.

In 1998, he ran for and was elected Judge of Brazos County Court at Law No. 2. With the encouragement of several lawyers who appreciated his hard work on the Bench. He ran for and was elected Judge of the 272nd District Court in 2000, and was re-elected to that post in 2004. As a Judge, he was known as a positive judicial force with high energy and wise decision-making ability. Rick ranked highest among the District Judges in the 2006 Brazos County Bar Association poll, the last poll conducted before he left the bench to return to private practice.

Legal Answers

Q. Can i get visitation to see my 4 grandkids from my bipolar daughter?
A: Under the Texas Family Code, you have to have "standing" in order to bring a lawsuit to get Court ordered possession of or access to children. "Standing" essentially means the right to bring the lawsuit. It can be very technical. You need to consult with an experienced family law attorney to determine if you have standing to bring such a lawsuit.
Q. I have to go to Livingston Texas and turn myself in for a warrant. I have no money for a lawyer.. what do I do
A: I suggest that you turn yourself in on a weekday afternoon on Monday through Wednesday. That way, you will likely be booked into jail, have to spend the night there and then be brought before a Magistrate the next morning. At that time, you can tell the Magistrate (usually a Justice of the Peace) that you cannot afford a lawyer and ask him or her to appoint you one. If you turn yourself in on a Friday, you may have to wait until Sunday or Monday to appear before the Magistrate. Every county is a little different.
Q. Can i be extradited back to texas from kentucky for a felony warrant?
