“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.”  – Google+Review (Garrett B.)

“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.” – Google+ Review (Oscar D.)

“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.” -Google+ Review (Sam A.)

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!!! – Google+ Review (Ken H.)

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.” (Google+ Review Fred B.)

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! (Google+ Review)

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.
