2019 Top Attorneys: Joel A. Rice
Joel A. Rice is an experienced personal injury attorney based in Shreveport. “Rice Law Firm is here to serve our clients and see that they are restored from the harms and losses they have suffered,” Rice said.
Rice is a native of Shreveport, who attended Caddo Magnet High School and Centenary College. He later went on to earn a Masters in Business Administration and Juris Doctor from Louisiana State University.
Rice has been practicing law for 14 years, the majority of that time spent handling cases for victims of motor vehicle accidents. “People often say, ‘Oh well, accidents happen.’ While the saying is true, it is also true that there are always reasons accidents happen and those reasons are usually carelessness or negligence. When it is a motor vehicle accident, it can have a serious impact on a person’s life. We want to help injured people reclaim their lives.”
He credits his success to God. “I feel blessed,” Rice said. “All promotion comes from the Lord. All glory is His. I want to serve Him in my practice and the people He leads to us. The practice of law is more to me than just solving legal problems. As attorneys, we should strive to exceed professional standards. It is about seeing real change and improvement in the lives of members of our community.”
Rice Law Firm provides access to the court system to individuals who could not otherwise afford legal services.
