Richard B. Sorrell, Sorrell Law Firm Founder and Principal

About Richard B. Sorrell

Rick did not set out in life to be a lawyer. He worked in radio for several years (and when that did not pay the bills in various other jobs) before returning to college and graduating with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. Rick went on to receive an MA from a Seminary located in North Carolina, and worked in various church and para-church ministries. It was not until the arrival of the Sorrell’s third child that Rick decided to go to law school.

Indiana University School of Law

Rick entered Indiana University School of Law (Bloomington), and graduated with a JD. While in law school, Rick spent 2 years working for United States Congressman Mike Sodrel. Rick attended functions with the Congressman, served as a policy analyst, drafted position statements, and answered the concerns and needs of the residents of the district. After law school, Rick and his wife Roberta decided to return to the Charlotte area, and Rick worked for a small law office in Charlotte, where he got to see many facets of the legal profession. In time, he went to work for the litigation department of a large Uptown Charlotte firm. While he freely admits that there was initially a certain excitement to riding the elevators to the top of a fancy skyscraper every morning, Rick missed the feeling of being able to help people and the close personal contact that can be had in a small office. (That being said, some of the probably-grossly-overpriced paintings in the offices of the large law firm were interesting.)

2008 The Sorrell Law Firm

Rick began the Sorrell Law Firm with the mission of providing quality legal services at an affordable price (our only paintings were done by Rick’s children). A small law firm in Concord, North Carolina, we are dedicated to providing outstanding, big-firm type sophisticated legal services with a personal touch. We serve clients throughout Cabarrus County, and adjoining areas of Mecklenburg County including University City, Mint Hill, Huntersville, Cornelius, and Northeast Charlotte. Rick seeks to offer his clients affordable and practical solutions tailored to their particular needs. And to focus upon what is best for his clients, not what serves the interests of the firm.
