Annapolis Attorneys Dedicated to Your Best Interests

At Rice Law, our team works tirelessly to provide clients with everything they need for any family law matter. Two of our Annapolis lawyers are litigators by trade (both former prosecutors) and one is a former Court of Appeals Law Clerk. Combined, we offer over 45 years of litigation experience. We are smart, hard-working, dedicated to our clients, and our work ethic is unmatched. More importantly, we have compassion and empathy for our clients, who are experiencing one of the most difficult times in their lives. Our team is very well-known and respected, especially in Anne Arundel County. Over several years of practicing in and around Anne Arundel County, we have built positive relationships with court staff, judges, and local attorneys.

How We Prepare Ourselves & Our Clients

When we take on a new case, we spend a great deal of time talking with our client, listening to their goals, advising them about the law, and discussing strategy. We organize the file and all of the evidence, learn the facts inside and out, meet with witnesses, and consult with experts whenever needed. Our office prioritizes meeting with our clients and ensuring that they are always kept fully informed throughout the process, and we discuss the options available to them. We believe strongly that it is much better for a client to have a say in the final outcome than to leave the decisions up to a judge. However, if it does not seem like a settlement will be possible, we are prepared to take a case to trial and fight it ferociously.

The Role We Play in Clients’ Lives

We believe that our primary function is to advocate for our clients’ best interests. We spend much of our time counseling our clients through the emotional turmoil they experience as a result of their case. At Rice Law, we do our best to educate our clients on the law and help them to understand the likely outcomes based on their unique situations. As skilled attorneys, we are committed to providing clients with a balance of empathy and straightforwardness. Our goal is always to solve problems, not create new ones, and we want our clients to feel better and more confident when they leave our office.


What Clients Are Saying About The Rice Law Team

  • From day one, Stacey and her team were absolutely amazing. Everybody on her staff is extremely skilled and excellent at what they do. Samantha did a phenomenal job representing me and was extremely observant and paid close attention to every aspect of my case. Samantha is a very strong attorney and made sure to fight for me when I needed her most, and resulted in me resolving what could’ve been a very long and painful case, in a relatively quick and painless manner that I was very happy with. Overall I can not express how happy I was with the service from everybody at Rice Law. The difference between them and the competition is noticeable right away, in every aspect, especially the quality of work. I highly highly recommend Rice Law and I know of several other people who do as well. I will never go anywhere else, and you shouldn’t either.

  • Stacey Rice has been great on all fronts. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and demeanor in the court room are unmatched. I would recommend Stacey and her staff to anybody looking for a firm with a strong foundation of integrity – her advice has been spot on and I can’t say enough.

    Jean Paul L.
  • I am in a horrible situation involving my family. It’s demoralizing and crushing and erodes all facets of my life. The staff at Rice Law is handling everything. I have total confidence in them. Nothing is more reassuring than knowing Stacey is running my case and handling everything personally. Mrs. Rice calls me regularly and does all my court appearances where it’s obvious she is in her element.

  • Charles A.
  • I want to share my experience with Attorney Stacey Rice during the most difficult time in my life.

    Stacey and her Team handled my case in the most professional and caring way, she was very attentive and answered my questions promptly.

    I was under an attack I couldn’t defend on my own. I was harassed by my ex repeatedly. He wanted to destroy me at all costs. Stacey took the time to listen to all my concerns. She took an aggressive posture when needed and for that I’ll be forever grateful! God Bless you and your Team! Thank You Attorney Stacey Rice!

  • If you are looking for a family law attorney that has your family’s best interest in mind look no further. Samantha Posner at the Rice law firm was a godsend in my lengthy, complicated and somewhat unique divorce/ custody battle. I made the mistake of hiring other attorneys before finding the Rice law firm that were supposed to be “the best in the game” and let me tell you none of them fought as hard or cared as much as Samantha Posner did. Thanks to the Rice law firm my children are able to have the time with their father that they deserve and I don’t know how I would have made it through this difficult process without them. If you’re looking for a lawyer that is just going to treat you like a number and run up an expensive bill then hire the guys from the “radio or television”, if you want an attorney that is going to care about your case, help you make it through the process and fight for your family then do yourself a favor and hire the Rice law firm right now.

  • Samantha is an outstanding and professional lawyer. She is on top of all phone, e-mail, and in person communications. I was able to reach her in times of distress and not only did she get back to me quickly, but she was also compassionate and acted on my behalf. I always felt she was working in my best interest and will be my go-to lawyer for all needs in the future. She is incredibly intelligent and at the top of her field. She is an experienced attorney and turned my nightmare case into a much more pleasant experience. I am incredibly grateful for her services.
