Bankruptcy and divorce
I hired Mr. Ridgely to help with a bankruptcy and a divorce. He helped me navigate through the both cases and figure out which to do first. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in both cases. He was always professional and available to answer any questions I had. He was kind and compassionate during a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend Mr. Ridgely and if I had to, use his services again.

Best attorney in Fort Collins
I first contacted Thomas Ridgely in 2018 as I was going through a very uncomfortable divorce. My ex-wife's family had a lot of money and power behind and it was just me I felt defeated already. So at my mother's insistence I lookup up an attorney to consult with I was lucky enough to get Thomas Ridgely, it completely changed my outlook. It was very honest my first consultation didn't cost me a cent he told me what my options were after I hired him he got to work immediately he was easily accessible always return my phone calls. I'm disabled and he often made arrangements to be able to meet me at my convenience it was a long drawn-out process a division of property. Long story short is he checked them at every turn and soon my ex was willing to settle without even having to go to court anymore. I can honestly say that he made a very big difference in my life I would not be where I am now if not for Thomas Ridgely

Thorough and attentive. Would recommend!
I hired Mr. Ridgely to handle an insurance claim for me after a car accident. He took care of it quickly and got more for me than the insurance company initially offered. He has also done some child custody work for me in the past following a separation. I've been very pleased with his attention to my legal matters.
