At a very difficult time in our son's life, David was the best counsel we could ask for.
The outcome was the best we could hope for.
We highly recommend David as a caring and professional counsel!

David represented my brother and I on an assault charge. David was able to get the charges dismissed. Mr. Ridings was the most caring attorney that I have ever come across. He answered every question I had and constantly assured me everything was going to be okay. David has a great relationship with everyone within the system. He knows the law from the inside out. Mr. Ridings is a Godly man who is not just looking for your money. Having David on your side is the best decision you can make when going through the legal process. He is a former cop and understands both sides of the law. If it weren't for David I would have been a nervous wreck. He is awesome about getting back to you and guiding you through the process. He is extremely confident in the courtroom, reducing your anxiety within the courtroom. He gives you his personal phone and even lets you text him! For the sake of your future I would say hire Mr. David Ridings.

I was recently arrested and charged with 3rd offence DUI. Technically, the charge should have been 2nd offence considering my first was at the age of 18 and dated back to 1992. The second was in 2008 and was treated as 1st offence. Either way, my court date is scheduled for early next month. Needless to say, I was very scared after the arrest. I met with a couple of lawyers before reaching out to David. When we met in his office one afternoon, I immediately knew he was different from the others and was the man for the job. Regardless of the outcome, David has already helped me tremendously. I can’t explain the peace of mind I have now knowing he is and will be in my corner!

If you are looking for an empathetic, compassionate, comforting and responsive attorney, then you really should look no further.
I called David's office on a Saturday morning after being arrested for the first time. As you could imagine, I was scared to death and a complete ball of anxiety. After getting his cell phone number, I gave him a call and left him a message.
Just a couple of hours later, I received a text from David that said "Kayla, I got your message. I am sorry that I missed your call, but in the meantime, please try not to worry. I am certain that I can help you. I will call you this weekend for sure". And you know what... He called! We talked the next day for about 30 minutes, and later set up a meeting. After meeting with David, my gut told me that he was the best choice and I hired him without a second thought.
I found myself fighting a DUI charge as well as an Implied Consent charge. I did everything that I could do beforehand to gather evidence in my defense and handed that over to David. Him and I both agreed that although he could make no promises, he would try his best to plead me down to Reckless Driving with no Jail time. Because of the Implied Consent charge, I was also facing a year with a restricted license and an interlock. We went in to court expecting the Reckless Driving and Implied Consent charge, and even though I tried very hard to plead my case of innocence, I had accepted my fate and got ready to be financially strapped for a year. But to both of our surprise, the DA accepted the Reckless Driving charge and ended up DROPPING the Implied Consent charge! We literally smiled and high fived because of this outcome. I am so happy with how this turned out. Yes, I do have to have an interlock still, but now only for 6 months and I get to KEEP my license with no restrictions!
I am definitely the type of person that needs to know everything from every angle, so though I am sure I was annoying at times, he always answered my questions and reassured me that everything was going to be okay.
David, thank you so very much for everything! You really have no idea how much it means to anyone facing charges that you are not only responsive, but comforting and honest. I pray that I am never in this situation again, but if for some reason I am, I will be turning to you once more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I hired this lawyer to help me with a dui arrest. In my search of speaking to different lawyers I was extremely scared on not knowing what lawyer was telling me the truth that he could really help me or if they were just after my money. I know now I made the right decision hiring David Ridings he was worth every penny of my money and he really does care about his clients and follows threw above and beyond what he says. Hire this man and you won't regret it.

Mr. Ridings helped me over several months with 3 charges ultimately getting 1 dismissed and 2 reduced to probation. It definitely could have gone far worse if it was not for his knowledge and help. He almost always returns calls the same day and updates his voicemail every weekday. Originally I met with another lawyer that wanted to charge me much more and told me some things that were questionable. The other lawyer wanted me to send payment without any kind of a written agreement and would not return my calls. So glad I found Mr. Ridings after that. He will take the time to answer your questions. He is a Christian family man and you can trust him.

I was involved in a incident with my gf and was wrongly accused. The case was blown out of proportion and Mr. Ridings was able to get it dismissed the first court date. David is good guy and was really impressed by his methods and actions.

Once Mr. Ridings was hired for my representation, I immediately felt a sense of relief. He was strong, poised, articulate, and highly energetic. That was the impression before we even began to delve into the case itself. He was extremely knowledgeable, and in turn taught me the scope of what was pertinent in my case. He proceeded to navigate me through the legal process with ease. Mr. Ridings took the reigns so to speak, and I felt very comfortable in that he would take good care of me as a client. He was responsive when I had questions, and demonstrated that he was not going to back down to wrongdoers. He stood up for what was right and we won! I recommend that anybody looking for an ethical, superb attorney.....hire Mr. David Ridings.

My son had been picked up & charged w/ aggravated burglary. I immediately got my son out on bond, because I knew that this is something that he would have NEVER done. Upon learning the story behind this charge, as his so-called friend asked him to pawn a laptop for him that he no longer needed because he didn't have an ID, was here illegally, & needed the money, my son pawned it for him, not knowing the the laptop was stolen in a home invasion. Now this is coming from a young man that I have NEVER had any major problems with growing up, who has a full time job, & was preparing to start college in the next month. I knew then, that we needed to hurry up & find him a lawyer, before his life was ruined over pawning a laptop for a friend. I instantly knew that I would NOT allow my son to represented by a public defender, so I immediately started doing searches for the best lawyers here in the nashville area. Upon reading loads of reviews & doing phone interviews w/ several law firms, there was on that kept sticking out to me in my searches (David Ridings). I eventually started googling / reading past reviews & doing more research on Mr. Ridings, even via social media & one thing stuck out to me (he gives his cell phone # on the site). I know that i'm new to this lawyer thing but that just AMAZED ME, because every other firm or office I called, I spoke w/ assistants to give info & they would have the lawyer get back to me if they could offer services. Well, I went ahead & called the # thinking surely this man would NOT answer the phone, & after dialing the # Mr. Ridings picked up on the very 1st ring..... I knew that it was him because he stated his name. I was so shocked that I got tongue tied. He was in the process of stating his name again, when I let him know who I was & the reason for my call. I asked him if this was a bad time, should I call back, or does he need to call me back, & he stated “NO, I’m always available, so tell me about your issue”. I was COMPLETELY SHOCKED, & This spoke volumnes to me. I knew then, that he was going to be my son’s lawyer. This man was driving, & pulled over & instantly started taking notes & pulling up info on his laptop. Upon making our 1st appt, w/ Mr. Ridings, he was very flexible & working around our schedules, & was very pleasant upon meeting him in the office. He is very knowledgeable, & caring. Upon meeting my son, & getting the exact story of what happened from him, along w/ my “Motherly Detective Work”, Mr. Ridings said We can definitely get him cleared of this charge. In our court proceedings, he spoke for us & he delivered without a doubt. Mr. Ridings got my son’s case RETIRED, & after 60 days, he will file to have it Expunged From his record. In a nutshell, Mr. Ridings is an AWESOME & WELL KNOWLEDGEABLE Lawyer. I recommend him to the WORLD if anyone is ever trouble. Mr. Ridings, YOU ARE very much APPRECIATED. THANK YOU for what you have done for me & my family.
