Edward L. Rice

Edward L. Rice, partner, received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Texas A&M in 1982, then spent two years under the tutelage of his father, an MBA, in the family’s small business. He went on to law school at the University of Houston, where he was selected to research and write on the Board of Editors of Houston Law Review as a supervising Case Note and Comment Editor.

Upon graduation, Ed accepted an invitation to serve as a briefing attorney for the Chief Justice at the 14th Court of Appeals in Houston. He then entered private practice as a litigator in a large San Antonio firm, representing large corporations in both Federal and State trial and appellate courts. Moving to Dallas in 1995, and continuing to practice in the trial courts and handling appeals, Ed concluded that the most rewarding work for him was representing individuals and small businesses like the family business he had left. Ed began to work with us in 2002, and his past knowledge and experience in small business, as both participant and advocate, has proved invaluable. His primary practice areas are fiduciary and probate litigation, and his experience with individual and business transactions, and appellate law, provide essential skills as family businesses pass to the next generation.

Licensed by the Supreme Court of the State Bar of Texas, Ed is a member of the Trials Skills Section of the State Bar of Texas, the Dallas Bar Association, the Estate Planning and Probate Section of the Dallas Bar Association, and the North Texas Estate Planning Council.

Ed is also a former Golden Gloves boxer.
