RICCO M. GARCIA
I am an attorney, best-selling author, and policy/legislative advocate.
I was born and raised in the southern most tip of Texas in a region commonly referred to as the Rio Grande Valley. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin where I majored in Government and minored in Rhetoric and Writing.
I received my J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center with the opportunity to attend Georgetown University Law Center as a visiting student during my final semester.
In 2017, a book I published, “How a Goat Became Mayor and the Political Spring That Followed” became a #1 Amazon best-seller.
I am well versed and proficient in a number of statewide and federal issues, have a deep understanding of the legislative and budget writing process, a strong understanding of agricultural and education policy, and am capable of litigating complex matters.
