About Richard Eddington
Hello, my name is Richard (Rick) Eddington and I have dedicated my entire 31 years of legal practice to helping represent individuals, and their families, who have been the victims of personal injury and wrongful death accidents. Being a second-generation plaintiff’s personal injury attorney who was raised in Texas, I was able to learn from the best and truly enjoy helping people in need. I have seen first-hand how insurance companies take advantage of, and bully, people who are placed in a situation of financial hardship due to an accident through no fault of their own.
I grew up in Houston, Texas where I graduated high school in 1974. I can remember when I was very young, going with my family to high school basketball games to watch my father coach the team. He was a high school teacher and the basketball coach, while at the same time attending law school at night and in the summers, before becoming an attorney in 1964. During this time, my mother was working full time at the telephone company to help support the family. I saw how hard my parents worked to support our family and learned at a young age the importance of a good work ethic. My father, as a young attorney, often worked nights and weekends to build a successful personal injury practice.
Seeing the satisfaction my father got from helping out people who were injured, and often in dire need of help is what drove me to follow in his footsteps into personal injury law. He was such an influence on not only me, but also my brother and sister, that we all went into personal injury law.
Throughout the 1980’s and 90’s my family had a law firm with offices in Houston, Brownsville and Corpus Christi. Our firm handled numerous catastrophic injury cases and wrongful death cases, including many multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements, many of which the insurance companies insisted upon keeping settlement amounts confidential.
During my 31 years of practice I have tried numerous injury and death cases in both state and federal courts. While I am currently licensed in both Texas and Colorado, I have also been admitted to the bar in California, Louisiana, Florida, New Mexico, Arkansas, Wyoming, and Iowa to try cases in these states as well. Over the years I have tried trucking cases, product liability cases, premises liability cases, aviation cases, maritime cases, bad faith insurance cases, and many auto accident cases. These cases have involved traumatic brain injuries, catastrophic spinal injuries, burn injuries, wrongful death, and other routine injury cases.
My trial experience has led to appointment by my peers to the Board of Directors of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. I have also been nominated to the American Board of Trial Advocates as well as to both the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocate Forums.
I love trying cases and really enjoy helping mentor younger, less experienced, attorneys that are eager to learn the art of trial advocacy. This passion was the driving force behind my joining Ramos Law as Director of the Litigation Division where I lead the litigation department and mentor many of the younger attorneys, including my own son.
I have a wonderful wife, Annie, three sons, two stepdaughters and a stepson. I moved to Colorado in the summer of 1999 because my family and I love the mountains. My oldest son, Wes, is now a third-generation personal injury attorney that is working with me here at Ramos Law.
When I am not working I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, golfing, surfing, scuba diving, fishing and sailing. I also like traveling with my wife as well as spending time with my family and friends.
