Review Charles Rittgers

    I was advised there was a warrant out for my arrest for a SORNA violation back in Ohio when I returned to North Carolina. I immediately looked under Best Lawyers and found Charles Ritgers' reviews quite good. Mr. Ritgers immediately advised me what was going to be involved in representing me on a complex case with several extenuating circumstances. He was upfront about the costs, time and the what if's should we not reach an agreement with the prosecution. It was an extremely delicate situation requiring careful follow-through on both of our parts. Charlie brought on Mr. Nicholas Graman, a Specialist in this area of law for back up. They both did a great deal of work interviewing my PO, meeting with the DA, collecting documentation, scheduling and attending multiple court visits. Throughout the process they always advised me what they discovered and asked questions to make a successful case. After three court appearances, It appeared the DA wasn't going to offer a plea agreement and continued to bring in witnesses from the sheriff's office. Finally after both Charlie and Nick heard from those witnesses and met with the Judge and the DA and explained the circumstances behind my failure under SORNA, as well as my NC PO allowing me to illegally come to OH via travel permits, and the many other circumstances of the case, they were able to reach a fair agreement with them. I could have been in custody for 12-18 mos. with a F4 but they were able to reduce the sentence to a M1 and no probation given underlying circumstances. I was amazed how these guys came to my defense for this first time offense. I've worked with criminal defense attorneys in the past that were never as transparent and professional as Charles Ritgers and Nicholas Graman. They are the best attorneys I've ever worked with and would highly recommend them for full legal representation. They both exceeded my expectations.

    I was confronted with the most unfair, and undeserving life event. I felt helpless, hopeless, and confused. Charlie Rittger was sent by the Lord to help me, and help he did! He was on top of everything from beginning to end, and kept in constant contact which put me at ease. He explained everything every step of the way, there were no surprises. If you ever need legal help, I highly recommend Charlie Rittger. He doesn't make you feel like you're another number or like you're unintelligent. He and his experience and staff made a very stressful time in my life bearable. I'm so grateful, I am extremely happy now and I wouldn't be at this point without Charlie and his staff.

    While representing me I always felt Charlie cared about me and my case the way he returned my calls I never felt rushed. I always felt that he honestly cared about my future. The firm he has help his father build is well know, highly respected and justifiably so. Thanks Charlie, Dave

    I had no idea where to turn when I was charged with OVI. Charlie had the knowledge and expertise to get me through this difficult situation. He provided the best strategy and options for the situation. The results were the best I could have hoped for. I recommend him highly.

  • High level OVI case made reasonably comfortable

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Luke

    Charlie answered the phone in the dead of night for my first call to get a consultation and was incredibly informative and direct and put no pressure on me in the slightest to use his services over anyone else's. When it came to discussing his rates I was surprised to find it shockingly affordable (with respect to what others in the field charge), with a flat rate for the entire process that he was able to separate into a few payments to give me time to get my assets in the right places.

    This was my first experience with the court system and nervousness was the overwhelming emotion in my life at the time. When Charlie arrived though he answered every question I had running through my head with patience and expertise. My odds were not good on a reduction of charge but Charlie was able to explain the facts to the prosecutors and they were willing to just stick with the charge of regular OVI (which was not the best case scenario for me obviously but entirely fair and better than the alternative). He petitioned the judge for driving privileges for work and they were granted without the need of an interlock device; which was a surprise for both of us in the best way.

    Charlie's experience, professionalism, and all the other factors that go into being a good practitioner of law were visible and expertly performed. As a side not he seemed to be an incredibly kind, genuine guy who really did care about what he was doing for me.

    Charlie you have my thanks and my recommendation.

    Charlie is the best attorney I've ever worked with! I had hired someone else, who was very incompetent. Charlie took over our case and was able to bring better results than we anticipated. Hire Charlie, and he will fight for you! He is honest, trustworthy, and was always quick to answer any questions or concerns.

  • Fantastic Attorney and Great Representative

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Greg

    My attorney from the beginning had a great since of what my outcome may be and was able to relate that to myself and my family. My attorney was always there if we had any questions after he explained all the possible scenarios and if we forgot anything, he didn't hesitate to remind us in a fast and timely manner. My attorney was very polite and proactive where we took care of a situation before the judge was able to sentence me with punishment. My attorney help cut down several expenses by being a precise and to the point individual, which was awesome! My attorney handled business and would definitely recommend him to others!

    Thanks again!
