Mr. Ridings could not have been kinder to me from the moment I first contacted him. He is compassionate, highly competent, and intelligent about the law. He was able to get the best possible outcome from the most horrible experience of my life. What he set out to do to help me was what he helped make happen. He helped me believe that bad things and mistakes happen and that there is a way to move on from them, both legally and emotionally. I would highly recommend his services to a loved one in need.

First of all let me say that David Ridings is a legal rockstar and a class act!
He had the wisdom, knowledge and experience to help me get out of my case. Whatever the circumstances he was always confident and persistent in resolving my case. The outcome was way better than expected.
He has the focus and knowledge to get things done, through this process he kept me informed almost everyday and answered any questions at anytime. He genuinely cares...
David is an outstanding attorney and helped me successfully navigate through the most chaotic event ever in my life. What a blessing to have hired David.
My family and I thank you so very much!

We reviewed and talked with several lawyers before hiring David. He was the only one that seemed thorough and intelligent, without being arrogant and insensitive. He treated our son with respect, communicated with us every step of the way and comforted us even when we felt like there was no hope for justice. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome in our case and are so thankful for his help.
We hope to never be in this situation again, but if we were - we'd call on David's expertise, without question.
