Mr. Rittley and his paralegal were invaluable in helping me to do the needful with my aunt's estate. I live in Western PA; my aunt lived in NJ. Before hiring Mr. Rittley, my aunt had given a large retainer to a lawyer who has since been disbarred; Mr. Rittley helped to recover those funds and to guide me through the mess that was my aunt's estate. The house was a mess, boxes and boxes of papers had to be sorted through to determine what assets might remain-- people had taken advantage of my aunt's failing health and helped themselves to her things-- Mr. Rittley and his paralegal were knowledgeable, efficient, accurate-- and very kind to a clueless out-of-stater as together we navigated through a sea of obstacles. Every step of the way, he guided me through a morass of paperwork and bureaucracy, and we have recently and SUCCESSFULLY concluded the matter.
He even pitched in and physically assisted with the clearing of the house and property in preparation for its transfer to a charity in accordance with the terms of my aunt's will.
I would most heartily endorse Mr. Rittley and his paralegal, Sue, to assist anyone needing legal counsel.

We had my business as well as a family to separate and my husband was running into Court at every opportunity. Mr. Rittley was able to shut him down in Court. Once that happened, the case resolved quickly. I'm not one for getting outsiders involved in our business, but Mr. Rittley really came through, he figured a way to save the business that I started. With the $4,000+ I receive every month, I am able to take care of the children and keep my business running for my children's future.

I was facing an uphill battle with my husband who filed for a divorce out of the blue. He tried to take the children, my pension and our savings. He even tried to change the title on our investment properties. Mr. Rittley really came through. He got me immediately into Court and stopped all my husband's attempts to poison the children, stopped him from trying to sell the investment properties. Even though it took two years, I got the children, my pension, more than half of all the accounts and I even got our investment properties. It was a battle but I was happy I had Mr. Rittley by my side. I would highly recommend him. I could tell he really brought the judge around to seeing the case our way.
