About Us


Upon his graduation from The University of Texas Law School in 1989, Rick served a tour in the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California, where he worked as both a prosecutor and a defense counsel in a busy trial shop.  Upon leaving the USMC in 1993, he went to work at Wetzel, Herron & Drucker, the predecessor firm of what later came to be known as Drucker, Rutledge & Smith, LLP.  The firm’s trial practice was widely regarded as one of the finest in Harris and Montgomery Counties, successfully handling large and complex matters all over Texas. 

When his former firm merged with Baker Donelson to form the firm’s Houston office in 2012, Rick decided set out in a new direction. Thus, after a successful run of nearly 20 years with Drucker, Rutledge and Smith, LLP, and its precedessors, Rick opened Rutledge Law Office, P.C. in February 2012.

Rick is a native Houstonian and a graduate of Northbrook High School. Rick and his wife Jodi live in The Woodlands; they have six children, ages 17 to 28.  Rick's interests are spending time with family, taking care of his pug, college football, the Houston Astros, as well as baseball of any kind and level. As the first General Manager for the MtB Mustangs and the long-time and winningest Varsity Head Coach of their high school baseball team, Rick’s jersey (#2) was retired in 2011.
