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.

David has represented me twice and both times he did a phenomenal job. He listened to my situation and fought to get the best outcome.
In addition to being a great lawyer, he is also a very nice person. I highly recommend David.

After being arrested for the first time I had no experience hiring an attorney. After brief consultations with a few attorneys I chose David Ridings because of the confidence, knowledge, and human element he conveyed during our call. He exceeded all my expecations throughout the entire process ending with an expungement of my case. David delivered above and beyond while understanding the imporance of discretion allowing me to move on with my life.

Mr. Ridings handled my case quickly and professionally. He let me know all of the things that I needed to do before I got to court and he handled the rest. He made sure everything went smoothly. He was very serious about helping me and made sure my case was taken care of so I could continue on with my life with no disruptions.

I came to David with 2 felonies and DUI with several prior arrests on my record. There were several different senerios I was facing and none of them were good. Hopeless, I came to David praying for a miracle. My intintial visit with him offered me the ray of hope I was needing while waiting for my court date. Anytime I had questions or just needed reassurance, he was there and very responsive to my calls and questions. He suggested I do a few proactive things prior to court that tremendously influenced the outcome of my charges. Ultimately, the two felonies were dropped and the DUI was kept to a first offense. I could not have hoped for a better outcome. David Ridings has the experience and work ethic to help facilitate the absolute best outcome if you are currently facing criminal charges. I highly recommend his services if you are serious about having the best possible representation for your day in court.
