    Hired attorney

    There are not enough positive words I can say about Mr. Ridings. When you or a family member are charged with a serious offense there is nothing in my opinion, more anxiety producing then trying to navigate the legal system. My son was arrested, taken to jail and was facing multiple fines, penalties and jail time. Like everyone else in this type situation, we researched for the best attorney. We met and talked with a few, but when we met with Mr. Ridings, I immediately knew he was an answer to prayer.
    In reading his profile we knew he had experience on every side of the law.
    He was kind, patient, informative and answered every question we had.
    He has a genuine interest in you as a person, actually returns your calls and stays in contact with you throughout the whole process! Like I said all attorneys are not the same!
    Because of Mr. Ridings expertise, my sons charges were dismissed and from what I understand almost unheard of with the charges he faced. We are so thankful and grateful to Mr. Ridings. He is an excellent attorney and has truly met his calling!

    Thank you David Ridings, your the best!
    God bless you and your family!

    David Glenn Ridings’s response: “Wow. That was a very kind review! Thank you so much. I will say that every now and again I get a resolution that surprises even me. :) This was one of those. And the dismissal of these charges could not have happened to a nicer person. Your son is an amazing young man, and I look forward to seeing what God has in store for him. Thank you again for the kind words in your review.”

    Hired attorney

    My experience with David was an excellent one. I had a serious DUI case that David got reduced to Reckless Endangerment and only had 12 hours of community services and an alcohol awareness school. He went the extra mile on my case, preparing case law for my defense. I would highly recommend Mr. Ridings if anyone is in a similar situation. Thanks again David.

    If you find yourself in a position as I did, knowing nothing about the legal system for a DUI, do yourself a favor and hire David Ridings! I am a licensed professional in the community and a few months ago I got arrested for my first DUI. I had never been in trouble before, let alone arrested! I was petrified as to what that meant in regards to my driving license, professional license, and just embarrassed to even be in my situation. Even researching on the Internet for an attorney was very overwhelming. After reviewing several online profiles and speaking to different attorneys, I chose to retain David. He seemed to be aggressive, and due to his background/ professional work history seemed to be very knowledgeable about the TN laws around DUI's. After speaking with David, I knew I would be in excellent hands! He was attentive and empathetic to my situation which helped to put me more at ease. Before my first court appearance he reviewed my field sobriety tape. He told me that he felt very confidence that if we went to trial, he could beat the charge. He said he thought it would be "fun" to try my case. Now that is confidence! I chose not to go to trial but he was able to get everything resolved at the second hearing. Due to his hard work and expertise, he was able to do something for me that, as I hear, is very rare. He was able to get a judicial diversion of the DUI. For me that means that after six months of probation, if all terms are met (and they WILL be) my record will be expunged!! He is extremely knowledgeable of the local court system and its officials, which is to your benefit . Needless to say, I am very pleased with my outcome! Thank you so much David!! You are very much worth every penny spent!!

    David Glenn Ridings’s response: “That case would certainly have been "fun" to try. Not that trials are fun... but vindicating the innocent is very fun! That said... I certainly understand the decision to take the reduction and ultimate dismissal and expungment without the risk of a trial. Good for you! And I am honored to have been chosen to represent you. I know how many choices you had, and I don't take that lightly. Best to you for the future.”

    Mr.Ridings recently took on my case which involved two felonies and an order of protection. These cases were filed under false pretense and were ultimately dismissed. He arrived at the criminal court on time and presented the case with much confidence and asserted knowledge. Prior to the hearing, he would constantly communicate with me and reassure me that he would do the best he could. Mr. Ridings is simply the best lawyer out there. He doesn't just care about winning, but also the clients themselves. I would most certainty reccomend him to anyone searching for a stupendous lawyer.

    My husband was in an auto accident and charged with a first offense DUI. TN has one of the strictest DUI laws and if convicted, your life can be turned completely upside down. Get yourself the best DUI lawyer and call David. It was money well spent. We could not have asked for a better outcome. When David says, "I will defend you like you're my own family.", he truly means it in every way. After reviewing 5 lawyers, we decided to go with David because he had the right mix of professionalism and empathy we were looking for. David is extremely knowledgeable of the local court system and TN DUI laws. He is a real people person and puts your mind at ease because he takes care of everything for you regarding your case. He is thorough in explaining the legal matters and the court procedures through the entire legal process. Even more important, he made us feel like family.

  • David Ridings - A great choice!!

    I was charged with a DUI this year. This was my very first offense and my first time ever getting into trouble with the law. I've always been very responsible and conscience of my actions and what happened on that night really shocked me and overwhelmed me with distress. I didn't know what to do, where to go, or who to contact. I spent a week doing research online and found David Ridings. He was my first choice and something told me he was the right lawyer for me.

    When I called David Ridings, he gave me a lot of insight on my situation and encouraged me to do my research and make sure I feel comfortable with him and his representation. Well, I liked that. I did do some more research and even made an appointment with "one of the best DUI lawyers in Nashville" (or so they say), and the man never even showed up for the meeting. He had his assistant meet with me and didn't even call me for 2 days after that. I knew to stick with my instincts and call David Ridings like I had planned the following Friday. I called him and told him that I was confident in my decision to have him represent me if he was still interested. We made an appointment and I met with him.

    From the moment I met with David, my fears and stress lessened. I knew I was in good hands and his experience really impressed me. I also thought it was great to have someone who had been on the police force for 15 years. He must know a lot and I put my trust in him.

    Now, I had a difficult case. I did not know what the outcome was going to be. I knew jail time or a suspended license amongst other nightmarish things could possibly be in my future. I kept prayers going and tried to stay positive.

    To make a long story short, the outcome was phenomenal. Almost miraculous! He did it!! I did not think I would be as lucky as I was the day I entered the courthouse. David Ridings is the man! He did a great job, went above and beyond my expectations, and now I have a second chance. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Ridings to anyone in a similar situation who feels stressed, scared, and worried. I can't say enough good things about him!

    Mr. Ridings was swift and efficient in dealing with my case. After only two court dates my felonies were dropped to misdemeanors and are now on grounds for dismissal. Any time I had a question David was quick respond to voice messages with a personal phone call. I know several people who have also utilized his services and have had similar experiences. David is not only incredibly good at what he does; he is also a great person and a pleasure to be around. I would recommend him to anyone who has gotten into a bit of trouble.
