Sumner was exactly what I needed when I went through my divorce and custody battle. My ex had decided that she would fight me every step of the way even though she was hardly involved in my children's lives up until the divorce. Sumner laid out a road map for me and gave me great advice at every turn. There were many occasions when I thought I was losing the battle, but Sumner would shed light on the actual situation and when needed was able to show me I had the strength to get through this. He knew exactly what was needed and when it was needed. When we went to mediation to finalize the divorce agreement and parenting plan, Sumner was very attentive to my needs and feelings as we went through the process. In the end, Sumner was able to get me exactly what I wanted in both the divorce and the custody of my child. I never wish a divorce or any type custody battle on anyone, but if you have to experience it, Sumner is the perfect person to have in your corner.

Going through a divorce is awful. Sumner was so understanding and supportive. Moments I was ready to throw in the towel, he helped me not to. He is so knowledgeable and understands what's best for you. He cares so much about the children and what is the best for them. He was always there to answer every question and always followed up
To make sure you were doing what you were supposed to do. The best part was it wasn't about winning, it was doing what was best for you, your family and your future!!

Mr. Riddick handled my legal case with the upmost of professionalism and courtesy. His knowledge of the law and court procedures is astounding. His efforts on this complicated case were incredible, which resulted in an outstanding performance in court and a landslide win for us.
Mr. Riddick is an awesome family law attorney and I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of family law guidance and representation.

Sumner was actually recommended to me as the second best divorce attorney for Gwinnett County. I disagree...He is the BEST! He listens attentively, asks all the right questions up front, and makes sure he is more than prepared to represent you and handle your case from any angle the 'other side' might hit you with. He is honest and won't just tell you what you would like to hear. Even if my case had not turned out in my favor I would honestly say that no one could have represented the best interests of my children as well as Sumner did. There just aren't enough words to express the gratitude, admiration, and respect I have for him!

Mr Riddick assisted me with my divorce. He was an extremely efficient, knowledgeable and responsive attorney. He does not hold back and gets straight to point and again very knowledgeable which I really appreciated.

My wife and I could probably write a book praising Sumner for his work on our case. Instead, we will give our cliffs notes review: you will not find a better attorney for custody cases, period.

Sumner was so easy to talk with about my situation and always easy to get ahold of whether via phone or email. Very professional. Very knowledgable. Definitely helped me come out better than I ever thought was possible. Would recommend him everyday of the week and twice on Sundays.

I would highly recommend Sumner Riddick to anyone in the greater Lawrenceville area seeking legal assistance. Sumner worked extremely hard on my divorce case, always fighting for my best interests. He made me feel as though I was his most important client every step of the way. His responses to my emails and phone calls were consistently timely and informative. The same can be said for his friendly and caring office staff. You won't be sorry if you choose to retain this talented attorney.

Sumner was great to work with. I felt like he heard me, heard my concerns, and gave back honest information which enabled me to make decisions. In court, we didnt get everything I wanted. However, I got what I needed, and he warned me about the other things. We discussed our options more than a few times, and I really feel like he and I did this together. He certainly held up his end, was overly prepared, and we were not surprised by the opposition. That to me was, and is, a key detail. I would hire Sumner again in a minute.

I have never had to hire an attorney in my life. I did not even know where to begin. A friend highly recommended Sumner. Within the first 15 minutes of my initial consult I knew I had found the right person for the job. He listened closely to what I had to say. He was direct, honest, and very knowledgeable.
No divorce is easy. It is probably the scariest and most emotional thing a person will ever go through. There are always curveballs being thrown. Sumner gloved every single one. And did so with a professional calmness that helped calm me down.
The process is long over for me thanks to Sumner. I have friends who are going through divorces of their own. I hear the discontent with their attorneys. The usual complaints of over-billing, their attorneys never being available, and not having the confidence their attorneys will ever settle their cases. Seemingly dragging on forever. Costing them a fortune. This was simply not the case with me.
Sumner is a great attorney, and a good person. A combination you don’t see too often. I have recommended Sumner to several people already and will continue to do so.
