Experienced, Fair, Trustworthy

For almost a decade as an attorney, Rick Brueggemann has represented hundreds of clients, serving as lead counsel in scores of cases in both federal and state courts.

redistrict photoRick has litigated several complex cases involving constitutional questions, including Brown v. Kentucky, a legislative map redistricting case recently decided in federal court.
On behalf of numerous plaintiffs in Brown, Rick and his co-counsel successfully challenged Kentucky’s election maps that denied equal representation to Northern Kentuckians, especially those living in Boone County. The U.S. District Court declared these maps to be unconstitutional and issued a permanent injunction prohibiting any further use of these maps for elections. He also worked as local counsel for the Institute for Justice in Rosemond v. Markham, a case defending our First Amendment right to free speech.

Prior to joining the law firm of Hemmer DeFrank PLLC, Rick served as in-house counsel for Bavarian Waste Services.  Even before that, he worked with the company’s attorneys in bringing two successful constitutional challenges on behalf of the company.
Rick  also has extensive experience in drafting and handling sophisticated business transactions, and has negotiated many complex contracts, including one establishing the first power plant on a Kentucky landfill fueled solely by landfill methane gas.

In addition to his experience in the courtroom, Rick has unique, real-world experience to complement his service on the bench. He went from working in a salvage yard to a courtroom, from a GED to JD with honors.
For Rick, the law always has been a labor of love, a passion that has made him deeply committed to the Constitution and seeing justice done. That’s why he is the best candidate for Circuit Court Judge in Boone and Gallatin Counties.
