Mr. Rick A. La Trace

Rick La Trace is an experienced lawyer who represents lenders and financial institutions in special asset matters, where the client’s primary goal is asset recovery. Working with clients on their commercial and residential troubled loans, Rick has deep understanding of their business objectives, knows what their cost and risk profiles are, and understands the borrowers’ industries. This ensures sensitivity to what clients need, immediate response times and a promise that not a minute will be wasted.

Immigration is also an active part of Rick’s practice. Representing large foreign employers with operations and offices in Alabama, he advises them on all aspects of immigration compliance and visas, and has represented clients under federal investigation or audit for alleged Form I-9 violations and employment of individuals not authorized to work in the U.S. Rick handles every immigration question, filing, administrative matter or controversy.
