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)!
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.
Doug handled our situation expertly with great professionalism. He is knowledgeable and we got an outstanding result.
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.
