John H Rittley

About me

With 28 years of practice, not including time as a police officer, you would figure there are not many issues we have not dealt with, but... Technology and a change in social morals presents us with new issues to resolve every day.

Not many you say, let's talk possibilities.  How about representing a spouse of an "Ashley Madison" subscriber in a divorce action.  While fidelity is not a geniune issue for the Court, its like putting gas on a fire in court if the paramours start stacking up like firewood.

How about representing a drone designer who holds patents that he developed with his girlfriend that his soon to be ex-wife wants. 

How about reperesents a child who is hit by an auto-drive (driveless) car, who is really at fault?

 And how about representing one of the citizens who like sending sex-selfies across the Internet.

Every day is a new and interesting day for us.
