After a decade as a prosecutor and defense attorney, Rick Cofer opened his own law firm, The Law Office of Rick Cofer, earlier this year – specializing in a broad range of practice areas including DWI, drug possession, family violence and juvenile charges. In addition to his legal practice, Rick is active in the Austin community. He holds leadership board positions with Austin Parks & Recreation, the Kind Clinic, Pease Park Conservancy, Ending Community Homelessness Coalition, and others, as well as more than a decade of service with the Democratic Party on local, state and national levels. In his free time, Rick enjoys time outdoors, especially with his notoriously photogenic pup Lady Bird, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi on the fast track to Instagram stardom.
