Speaker: Richard A. Gump Jr., Attorney & Counselor at Law
Topic: Legal Matters — Living With Parkinson’s
A native Dallasite, attorney Rick Gump has served clients from all over the world. After active duty training in the Army Reserves and upon graduation from the University of Texas School of Law in December 1972, he began his career at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, the Dallas law firm founded by Robert S. Strauss and Rick’s father after World War II. At first, he worked primarily on business structuring and bank representation, but when his first immigration client wanted help opening three ethnic restaurants in 1973, he found his niche. He soon formed his own firm, focusing on immigration law.
Rick has a personal connection with DAPS: his sister was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2012. While he hopes the disease is not genetic in origin, the disease is not as frightening as it once seemed. He has seen the way DAPS has helped her and others cope with Parkinson’s. He has also made sure she understands how to deal with legal matters affecting the disabled.
