Community Involvement
Rick is not only a trial attorney but also an accomplished musician. After studying piano, trombone and guitar, Rick taught himself to play the blues harmonica at age 17. He opened for the legendary John Lee Hooker when he performed with Hooker’s daughter, Zakiya at the House of Blues. Rick also played with Craig Horton, the guitarist for Muddy Waters and Little Walter. In the Bay Area, he has performed with many other well-known blues musicians including Maria Muldaur, Harvey Mandel, Jules Broussard and Larry Vann. In 2006 Rick released his first CD “Baskin in the Blues.”

Since opening in 2005, Youth UpRising (YU) has created a national model for personal transformation, social change and community involvement by providing comprehensive services to Alameda County youth, ages 13 to 24. Youth UpRising’s mission is to transform East Oakland into a healthy and economically robust community by developing the leadership of youth and young adults and improving the systems that impact them. YU employs multiple strategies to support youth who are at the epicenter of violence, live in poverty, lack positive adult relationships, are disconnected from school, and/or are involved in the justice and foster care system. YU meets youth where they are, commits to them, stabilizes their lives, and helps them imagine a brighter future for themselves.
