I was surprised how smooth an experience could be with a law office. A few days before my court date for a speeding ticket I thought I should see if a lawyer could help.
I wasn't expecting much on short notice, but I tried Riddell on the recommendation of a friend. Within hours of my initial email (Christmas Eve), I was on the phone with the lawyer that got my ticket dismissed with fines removed. I'll definitely try not to get another ticket. If I do get another ticket, I'll call Mr. Riddell right away.
Doug Riddell represented my girlfriend on a case in Columbus. We called him when the police were literally knocking on our door and he was right there to answer the call and give us real time advice.
He talked to us throughout that very scary and stressful day and was there for us at the arraignment on very short notice (the day after we first called). He even gave us his personal cell phone number so we could call anytime with questions. I have worked with lawyers before and have had to wait days or even weeks for a call back. But not Doug - every time we called about the case he would personally answer the phone or would call us back right away - even on the weekend.
Her charge had up to six months in jail. He was able to get all charges dismissed so my girlfriend could avoid a criminal charge and any jail time. I can't say enough positive things about our experience. We are so grateful to Doug and his firm for being there for us during a tough time and helping us get through it.
I had a fantastic experience with Doug. He was so responsive and I had a great outcome in my case. I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone. He really went above and beyond in my case. I have worked with several attorneys in the past and he was the most professional, reliable, and compassionate attorney I have ever worked with. He was really there for me from day one and committed to helping me throughout the case.
I contacted Doug after I found his profile online and saw that he had received several accreditations, awards and positive recognition. The reason I contacted him was due to a speeding ticket that I was looking for his help to get resolved.
Doug was extremely helpful, proactive and very much on top of things throughout the process. He kept me informed and resolved the case very quickly and successfully. I can't say enough about how efficient and qualified he was. Would definitely recommend him for others looking for great representation.
Doug was the best attorney I have ever spoken with. He picked up when I called and if he didn't called back in minutes. Great client service I would highly recommend him to anyone I know!!!
I can't say enough good things about Doug Riddell. I found Doug online after receiving a traffic violation from a township police officer that I didn't think was fair.
I entered my info on his website on a Saturday morning, and that same afternoon (on a Saturday!) I got a call back from him. Nice guy. Good guy. Very clear communicator. Told me what he thought he could do for me, but set my expectations rationally.
His price was fair, and his fee was fixed regardless of whether it took him one court appearance in the township Mayor's Court or if we needed to transfer (appeal) it in to the county court. As it turned out, we needed to transfer it. So Doug worked on the case for about 5-6 weeks, all for his fair fixed fee.
In the end he was able to do exactly what he thought he would. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. Doug is a really good guy (not something you'll often hear about an attorney). He does what he says he will. He's a clear communicator, he sets expectations clearly, then he follows up and follows through. I hope I don't need him again soon, but if I do, I'm 1000% positive who I'll call. If you need a traffic attorney, and I hope you don't, Doug Riddell has my STRONGEST recommendation and endorsement.
My experience with Riddell Law was wonderful. I have never understood law or the justice system very well, but all my questions were answered in simple, easy to understand ways! They helped me and aided me a lot in my process and would recommend anyone looking for down to earth help to invest in Riddell Law as their guide!
He got back to texts and calls within minutes (Even on weekends). Negotiated plea bargain for tickets (Online traffic school class) Took care of everything. All I did was pay. Thanks, Doug.
Douglas Riddell is very responsive and an excellent communicator.
I found Doug online after receiving a traffic ticket in a speed trap area near downtown Columbus that I didn't think was fair since the officer pulled me over right before the sign changed speeds. Not even a full day later after entering my information on the site did Doug reach out to me to hear my side of the story and take on my case.
I actually couldn't reach out to Doug until Day 7 of my 10 days until my court appearance and Doug helped me navigate how to get an extension so that he could review and work on my case.
He gave me clear instructions on what to send him and then clearly stated what he thought he could do for me after reviewing. Doug is great at what he does and his predictions more than came true.
His price is more than fair (believe me I received some crazy offers from other lawyers in the mail).
I would recommend Doug to anyone who needs his services and I would use him in the future as well if needed (although I don't anticipate receiving any more speeding tickets anytime soon)!
Mr. Riddell did an excellent job handling a speeding ticket I received. He was responsive and got me into a diversion program so that I received no points for the ticket. I frequently recommend friends and family in need of criminal or traffic advice to Mr. Riddell.
My spouse is a long haul trucker who got a speeding ticket in Columbus. I discovered Doug’s website while looking for some legal help for him. Doug was courteous, kind, thorough, and most of all, the case was heard QUICKLY and the outcome was very good. Kudos to people like Doug who help people like my spouse whose record had been clean for many, many years. THANK YOU!
Doug was caring and committed to my needs. I trusted him 100% that he would resolve my case, and I would be happy with the outcome. He did, and I was very pleased, and left out of the courtroom with a smile. I would highly recommend him in the future. He is determined to win your case!
I heartily appreciate your time & efforts in getting the case dismissed. I’d like to thank you for keeping me updated with case progress at all times. It was my pleasure working with you.
I can not thank you enough for everything that you have done for me. I will certainly recommend anyone that may be in need of your services not only for what you do, but for how you took care of me. I felt trust in you from our first conversation.
I picked Doug's name from a Google search when my son had an incident. Doug explained his flat fee and what he thought he could do for us. He prepared us for the worst but in the background was working with prosecutors to help get the charges reduced. He has working relationships with local prosecutors that make him extremely effective. He managed to get the charges reduced and literally gave my son a second chance. I have never worked with a lawyer before but Doug made the process easy. He was available when we needed him and always returned calls or text. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with him.
No sooner than 5 minutes after I submitted a form on his website, I got a call from Doug. I got a speeding ticket going 70 in a 55. A 2pt offense which would have caused my insurance to increase. I explained the situation to him and that I hoped to get it reduced to a 0pt offense. He was confident he could do that for me, which relieved my stress.
A few days later, he called to let me know it was reduced to a 0pt offense. Case closed. Cheaper fine and no worry of my insurance going up. If my driving record were a little better, I'm certain he could have gotten the charge dismissed all together! The process was quick and painless! No need for me to drive downtown, find parking, wait in a lobby for hours until my case is called and then trying to plan a good defense for myself. Avoiding that hassle was well worth his flat rate ($150). And the outcome made it all the better!
Should I (or family/friends) need a defense for any traffic related deal, I'll be certain to call him again. I wish I had used him in the past!
