I was cited for criminal speeding in my personal vehicle, 90+ in a 50, so I contacted Mr. Rike to weigh my options. I have a current CDL and I wanted to do what was possible to protect my CDL even though I'm currently working in a different line of work. Chris and I discussed my options and quoted me a fair price for his services, so I decided to hire him to handle my case. A couple months later I was extremely pleased with the service I was provided. Chris Rike and his partner Michael Kielsky were able to negotiate a plea down from a criminal to a civil penalty. Fine paid and lesson learned. Chris was easy to work with and I would highly recommend him or his partner if you're faced with a criminal speeding ticket.

I got a criminal speeding ticket in Arizona and live in Nevada. Chris handled all dealings with my case, which allowed me to not be inconvenienced traveling back and forth. He provided me with updates on the proceedings via email and managed to secure a plea deal to remove the criminal charges and severely reduce my fee. The peace of mind and professionalism that he provided was well above my expectations and would recommend him to anyone with a speeding/traffic ticket in Arizona.

Chris is a very good lawyer that got my criminal speeding violation dropped to a civil violation. He was very responsive and thorough with a fair price. I highly recommend Chris and his firm.

I was a student tourist in the States for the first time and I suspect the cop who pulled me over wanted to take advantage of that by issuing an illegal fine (which means they can charge you an exorbitant amount and get away with it).
Christopher contacted the court on my behalf and gave me the best advice, which in the end, allowed me to only get away with taking a defensive driving course online and pay the course fees.
He did all this without charging me anything. This man has a really good heart and you know he isn't just in for the money.

I had a criminal speeding ticket in AZ and I hired him to help me to reduce it to the civil one. My case was actually not that smooth since the court is not that efficient. There were some issues with my pre-trail on the court side. It took several months but he finally successfully reduced my ticket into civil one. And I just need to take the defensive driving class and got my ticket dismissed. I would recommend him for traffic related ticket issue.

Helped me get out of a photo radar ticket when I was improperly served. This is the type of lawyer you want on your side, and I would not hesitate to recommend or contact him in the future. Glad I found him through your site!

I received a criminal speeding ticket just outside of Nogales when I was going down there for business. I was cited for 69 mph in a 45 mph zone and in AZ that is a criminal charge. I did not realize that there was anything such as criminal speeding until I called to take care of the fine over the phone and was informed that I would have to appear to plea. I was at a loss as to how to proceed and quickly decided I should have counsel. I searched Avvo and doing my due diligence made five phone calls to highly rated practices. My call to Kielsky and Rike was put through to Chris Rike and he explained the violation to me, what my options were, what the price would be and sent a follow up email. Interestingly all four of the other calls I made went unreturned. Given the good service and information given in the first call, I decided to retain Chris and his firm to represent me and I am extremely glad I did.
After hiring Chris and giving him all the requested material and information he handled the rest. He was able to get everything done by phone and email and I did not have to appear in Santa Cruz County court. He kept me up to date at every point in the process. Given all the facts and information I was able to provide Chris, he was able to get my criminal speeding violation dismissed after taking online traffic school. This was the best outcome I could have hoped for.
I would highly recommend Chris and his firm for this type of representation and would expect that they would be as diligent and helpful in any kind of litigation they are retained to do. I personally would like to thank Chris and his team for a job well done.

I happen to call Chris Rike. Instead of making me pay first, he guided me very well for my advantage. Chris was very very knowledgeable and gave me allllll the options.
I really respect him more and will definitely guide anyone who would ask me for relevant info.
Way to go Avvo.com and Chris. Thanks again for so much of your time spent with me.
Thank You! Kiran Kumar

I have receive 2 speeding tickets from cameras two days apart. It was very stressful. I did not know any attorneys and searched the internet for legal assistance. . I got very lucky and found Chris Rike and Michael Kielsky. Mr. Rike and Mr. Kielsky were very helpful, responsive and kept me informed along the way. Both of my cases have been dismissed. Chris was great and I would highly recommend Chris to anyone that needs these professional services.

I was visiting in Phoenix and did not expect to receive 2 speeding tickets from cameras. I did not know any attorneys in Phoenix or Scottsdale and searched the internet for legal assistance. I got very lucky and found Chris Rike. Chris was very helpful, responsive and kept me informed along the way. I could have easily been put in a bad situation by selection professional services over the internet and not getting very good service. Chris was great and I would recommend Chris to anyone that needs these professional services.
