Review Sumner Riddick
  • Best experience!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Danielle

    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.

  • Mr. Riddick is Highly Recommended

    5.0 stars

    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 enabled me with information and honesty

    5.0 stars

    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.

  • Sumner is outstanding!!

    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.

  • MAKING THE BEST OF A TOUGH SITUATION

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Henry

    After six years of divorce my ex elected to change my five year visitation arrangement. When things were amicable we had made an alteration that provided me more time, but stupid me, I didn't get it in writing when I had the chance! I retained Mr Riddick after a clear consultation and he liked my case. Like all things legal (especially in Gwinnett County), it was a long process with a lot of stress and strain. Mr. Riddick maintains a great balance of seeing both the legal and the personal sides of his clients' cases. In the end, my case was settled just in advance of our court date (which he pressed very hard to get advanced on the court's calendar) with a result that allowed me a better opportunity to start being a Dad with more frequency. It was a bitter battle that IN MY OPINION the other side wouldn't have settled unless they truly thought they would have received an unfavorable result in court. The experience with Mr. Riddick was completely different than the attorney when I initially got divorced. He fought for the best interests of myself and my family.
