“It means a lot to me to have been nominated by Ben and to have been one of only 24 lawyers in Ohio to be selected. I’m looking forward to enhancing my skills, including leadership, branding, writing, and public speaking – as well as the opportunity to network with a diverse range of lawyers from across the state. I plan on taking advantage of all the leadership information that is provided to me to help me become a better leader,” reflected Ricardo. 

Operating out of the Cincinnati office, Ricardo practices in the firm’s Real Estate Default Group. His focus areas include foreclosure and its alternatives, eviction, and litigation and defense. Ricardo earned his J.D. from Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law and is a member of both the Cincinnati Bar Association and the Ohio Bar Association.
