I was referred to Mr. Riddick from a Partner in a super prestigious D.C. Law Firm. The Partner told me that I needed to see a man named Johnny Riddick. She told me that he was a really talented and experienced lawyer. When I met him, and after my initial consultation, I knew he was the lawyer for me. Basically, I had been in a long term relationship with a complete slickster. I had at stake well over two million dollars, a perfect credit rating, and a reputation as an honest businesswoman. The man was trying to destroy me. Mr. Riddick told me that he would handle it, and he told me after that first meeting, "I will handle your matter, and I will do a great job for you".
It took a little over a year, but my case was resolved just before the trial. I paid a very small amount of money, and got the case settled. In exchange, I got rid of a slickster. And I got my life back.
Mr. Riddick helped me to see my life clearly, and help me to make correct decisions about my future. It is difficult to describe how beautifully he and his stiff treated me. He is an extremely patient man, and a terrific lawyer. I thank God for Johnny Riddick. I have my life back! S

I was referred to Mr. Riddick by someone who works in the courthouse. He told me that Mr. Riddick was really experienced in support matters. I had back child support due of more than $64,000.00, which went back more than 15 years. However, during that period of time I had become disabled, I was shot years ago in the back. I am on disability. But the child support was still due. I live in Pennsylvania, and could not easily get down to D.C.
So Mr. Riddick was asked to help me, and called me in Pennsylvania. I explained to him what was happening to me. He listened carefully, as I told him that I owed $64,000.00 in child support. After listening, Mr. Riddick told me he would help me.
Over a period of several months, he communicated with me and we came up with a plan. Mr. Riddick then went with me to court.
What happened amazed me. Mr. Riddick had several meetings and two court hearings on my case. At the end he got my child support reduced to $3,500.00, which I pay in monthly payments of $100.00, a figure I can easily afford. I am beyond happy with my result.
When I left court to head back to Pennsylvania, I asked Mr. Riddick how much I owed him. He said, "Sir, your bill is zero, you owe me nothing, God Bless You". I just hugged him.
What a wonderful man, and a great lawyer. His work changed my life.

I was referred to Mr. Riddick by the D.C. Fire Department, I am a Firefighter of many years. My case involved custody of my 9 year old son. His mother and I were not married. His mother wanted to restrict my visitation to every other weekend, and she did not want me to have the right to share in decision making. She also wanted to make me pay an obscene amount of monthly child support, and she wanted almost $50,000.00 in retroactive child support.
I retained Mr. Riddick after my first visit with him . I felt confident that he knew what he was doing, and that he cared about my situation. My son's mother strung the case out for almost two years, because she was determined to be in control. We actually met, with both our attorneys, and settled most of the issues in the case. However, after the meeting my son's mother denied that we had ever come to an agreement.
So we had to have a 3 day trial. Long story short. After the trial, I was granted twice the visitation that my son's mother wanted me to have, awarded joint custody, I pay more than $500.00 LESS in monthly child support than she was seeking, I saved more than $30,000 in retroactive child support, and I was allowed to pay retroactive in $100 monthly installments.
In other words I got a wonderful result. I owe that man big time.
