"I'm giving 5 stars for a really simple reason, I received 5-star service. From the first call, I knew I was in excellent hands. When I got on the phone, I could feel a genuine energy and I felt that same energy throughout my experience with the firm. While I worked with one of firm's associates for the majority of my case, I was happy to hear from the principal, Doug, very early on in the process who assured me that he would be available if I needed him, but that he was placing me in the care of an experienced attorney who would go the extra mile for me--and she did. Danielle was always courteous, communicative, responsive, proactive, resourceful, and strategic. She made smart suggestions and decisions for my benefit. She resolved my case in my favor in less than a week. In all, I had a stellar experience with the firm beginning to end and am sure I hired the best in the business when I locked them in. Hire them and thank me later! :-)"
"I am so happy that I chose to use Ridley Defense. Danielle successfully helped to get me the best possible outcome in a very short period of time. She jumped right on my case as soon as she was hired and kept in good contact with me throughout the process. I would highly recommend her and the other attorneys at Ridley Defense!"
"So helpful. Went out of their way to help me resolve my issue by offering to call the county clerk to clarify an issue with my drivers license. Would use them again and again. Professional, polite and helpful."
"Very very very good lawyers who know exactly what you need, and how to get it. I would definitely recommend them and also if I could give you any advice just listening to what your lawyer tells you, they are going to do what's best for you."
"I had a great experience with Ridley Defense. They communicated with me throughout the process and made everything very simple and clear."
"Danielle is the MOST caring and BEST Lawyer you will ever find on planet earth!!!!! Danielle was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the law, system, and court personnel. She made herself readily available for any questions, no matter how small, and fought hard for fair treatment of my case. From the very beginning, she was so compassionate which helped calm my nerves. She reassured me that I was in the right place and that she would take care of my case. She clearly explained the process and kept me up to date. She ended up getting a complete dismissal on my case! Best possible outcome! I can’t thank her enough, she is the absolute best. I would highly recommend Ridley Defense!!!"
"When I needed a DUI attorney, I had a good friend who is an attorney ask around and he said that Ridley Defense was who he'd choose if his freedom was on the line and I'm so grateful I went with this recommendation. Tal fought hard for me and got me a more serious charge dropped that absolutely helped me keep my family together. I recommend them wholeheartedly. Without a doubt the best defense out there."
"Forever client here. My case was 10 years ago and the staff is still helpful. They immediately assisted with a referral lawyer who deals with a particular type of lawsuit, same day. Thank you Claire."
