Make the Choice to Hire A Firm that Provides Respect & Dignity

As a former Ventura County Deputy District Attorney, Douglas Ridley is highly knowledgeable in criminal law. His expertise and over 2 decades of legal insight allow his clients to trust that he will fight for them. Spending five years as a district attorney enabled him to learn how a case progresses throughout the legal process. With that position, he was required to gather all statements and evidence for a case in order to build a solid case against the criminally accused. Insight and practice from those years of service afforded him a significant advantage in fighting for his clients rights. Providing dedicated and understanding legal aid when you need it most, our entire legal team is prepared to create a solid defense on your behalf. We have successfully achieved positive case results including reductions in DUI charges, rehabilitation instead of jail time, and more!

"Doug Ridley is extremely knowledgeable and ethical. He gives a ton of his time to educate and support his colleagues in the legal community (like me). I highly recommend him."


"I retained Ridley defense 2 years ago. I was stagnant and ready to give up. I am active-duty military, I potentially could have lost everything I have ever worked hard for. My life seemed to have been moving in slow motion because this case was stagnant. Unfortunately, military diversion did not work in my situation! I was assigned Danielle and Tal, once they took over the case, they fought long and hard for me! The professionalism they displayed was phenomenal!! I was unsure what the outcome was going to be every day for almost a month. I can just say they fought hard and it really paid off!"


"I never thought I'd need the services that Mr. Ridley's Defense team offers. Writing this gives me anxiety and tears fill my eyes. After countless days and lost sleep, I came across Ridley Defense. I researched Ridley Defense inside out before contacting him. This was the scariest thing I'd ever been through in my life and everything was on the line. My boyfriend Is a Master at Arm's in the United States Navy with 14 years of service. I knew I was going to need someone who understood the military side of the law just as well as the civilian side. We needed someone who was going to understand the life that was in their hands, and we were at their mercy. This was a long 2 year process due to Covid but in August 2022 the Trial began. Doug Ridley met with us for the first time in person and I think meeting in person he got to see what 2 years of stress on a family really looked like. Danielle and Tal were our two lead attorneys. Danielle, this woman is an extraordinary attorney. Tal, was so calming and understood that emotions were running high and we could barely breathe. I assure you; you can trust Ridley Defense. Our family walked away with a VICTORY. We are now able to move forward with our life. This team was a wonderful blessing and I wish them all continued success. To Danielle and Tal, thank you isn't enough!"


"I wanted to write this review to acknowledge Tal Koyman my Attorney with Ridley defense. It was a pleasure having him represent me in court and I’m very pleased with his attention to detail. He guided me through the whole difficult process. If I ever need an attorney again you can bet I will be calling Ridley defense. Thank you so much."


"I highly recommend the entire team at the Law Offices of Douglas H Ridley! They provide incredible insight and develop fantastic strategies to benefit their clients tremendously. They handle cases with care, confidentiality, and precision. Even really good people make mistakes sometimes. In those times, good people absolutely deserve to have the highly sophisticated advocates at Ridley Defense on their side!"


"The Law office of Douglas H. Ridley is amazing!! Wish I could give him 10 stars! They really care about every one of their clients. Doug and his team helped reduce my DUI tremendously. I am very happy with the results after such a scary experience. Thank you!"


"Ridley Defense has been nothing short of exceptional. The relentless desire to achieve the best for me is superior. My highest recommendations to anyone who is looking for a team of professionals that will succeed and surpass your expectations. Ridley defense has produced positive outcomes for me when I believed there would be no such results in my case. There is no need to look around when the answer is right in front of you, Ridley defense is who you want on your side and on your team!"


"From my first contact at Doug’s office I knew I found the right attorney. What starts right ends right and they paved the way and fought for me tirelessly. Doug is patient and understanding! I don’t know what other way to describe it than to say it feels like they are fighting for you but even more so that they are fighting with you. You are on the same side. I love that nobody ever once told me what I wanted to hear – they told me what I needed to hear. You know whatever they are telling you is exactly what’s happening. I passed my situation to Doug, and as crazy as it sounds hardly thought of it again. They are all wonderful and work so hard! If you are considering using them, stop considering! They are an answered prayer."
