Brad won a case after we transferred the case from another attorney
I was prosecuted for money laundering. About $60,000 was found in my car. I paid $10,000 to Paul Ramos. That attorney kept asking me to sign a stipulated agreement but failed to explain why I had to plead guilty. After my friend talked to him over the phone, my friend found out that he did not even know about the evidence. I decided to fire him and transfer the case to Brad Rideout. He applied to the court to suppress the evidence. The court therefore dismissed the case without the necessity of a trial. Brad wrote an application to dismiss the case by writing over 40 pages of submissions. I am extremely grateful for his help. I highly recommend anyone to go to him for help.

Straightforward and Easy Dismissal Plea
I got unexpectedly arrested and charged with two misdemeanors out of the blue with a very weak case that I was the culprit. Still, I hired a representative of Rideout Law to represent me for the best possible outcome. At the pre-trial, I was allowed a "Dismissed without Prejudice" verdict as long as I am not to commit any crimes within 90 days after the Pre-trial. My representative was very knowledgeable and effective at everything he's done. I would definitely recommend.

The Best Lawyer in Arizona!
Ridedout Law went over and above to help me with my case. Even stepped in and helped when nobody else would. It was extremely easy to work with them going through the arduous legal process, to which the burdens could of been made especially strenuous for me and my family to bear, had they not stepped in and saved me from it all when they did. Brad and his team made things very simple for me to understand, and their communication through it all was second to none, never a question or a worry unanswered. Their dedication and knowledge ultimately saved me a lot of time and money in the end. Truly thankful they came to my rescue when I needed it most, and could never thank them enough! Would highly recommend contacting Rideout Law first for any legal matters or services one may find themselves in need of, as they are genuinely there to help. Thanks again for all your help!

Superior Representation!
I had never experienced legal trouble before a recent incident derailed me, and I had no idea how to navigate the court system or its paperwork. I faced four Domestic Violence charges. After researching online and seeing impressive reviews, I decided to call Rideout Law Group, and it ended up being my saving grace. Brad listened without judgment, explained the game plan and likely outcome, and gathered defensive supports in case we needed them. From the get-go, I was impressed by his superior intellect and strong presence. Brad is a driven perfectionist and hates to waste time. His wheels spin at hyper-speed, and a couple of times, I thought he must have forgotten things I’d told him...only to discover that he was already two steps ahead. It was also obvious at my hearing that the judge has great respect for him, and I felt at ease with him at my side that day. Three of my charges were dismissed entirely, and the fourth one will drop off after a year of probation. I’m not easily impressed, but Brad Rideout is a complete “10”.

Solid Lawyer
If you are in trouble with the law in Mohave County, buckle up and get a good…. No great attorney. Local one. Let me be specific. Brad Rideout at Rideout Law. Several reasons. You have landed in a snake pit. Law enforcement who has no regard for the constitution and for you as a human being. They don’t care about you, your rights or your life. You need help. There are some things that I look for when I am working with someone. 1. Communication. Brad answers his phone unless he simply cannot because of court. Weekends, evenings regardless. He is there. You need that. He cares about his clients and about their families. He understands that when a crooked law enforcement institution has destroyed your constitutional rights it is the entire family who suffers. Brad gets that and is on the clock for you and your family. 2. Value. Just because he isn’t billing you $450 per hour doesn’t mean he isn’t good. I have paid that much to attorneys and I cannot get them to answer their phone or even call me back in a reasonable time. Simple, pay the money and trust that a fair attorney fee does not mean you are not in the best of hands. With Brad you are in the best of hands. 3. Know the lay of the land. The reason I made a point to express that law enforcement in Mohave County are so evil Satan would not claim them as his children is if you have the wrong counsel you are going down, hard. I have complete confidence in Brad and his team to do everything he can to get you out or trouble. You are walking through a land mine after you have been bitten by a cobra. Brad knows the system and can help you and he will be faithful to your cause, to your case and to you and your family. 4. A fighter. Don’t let that handsome babyfaced picture of him on his website fool you. He is a fighter and he lives to punch back. And in that county, you need that. A good fighter knows when to dodge, dip, rope-a-dope and when to hit. What he does isn’t easy but effective. If you are in trouble there, you need someone you can trust. Someone who will fight for you and someone who will be honest with you about your situation. Someone who will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly. There is no way around it. If you are in trouble in that county you have a long painful road and you will have the scars to prove it. But the best chance of you walking away is with Brad Rideout and Rideout law. There is no way to sugar coat the situation you are facing. As I said in the beginning, get in the car with Brad and BUCKLE UP! He will help you.

Knowledgeable
Working for the criminal justice system in Mohave County since 2007 - Rideout Law Group would be my top recommendation. When we needed representation for our private adoption we knew exactly who to trust. Rideout Law Group has attorneys faceted with diverse knowledge and expertise in all areas of the law. This is exactly what makes this law firm one of the best! They were timely, informative, supportive and most importantly knowledgeable. From working our case before our baby was born; fine tuning the details of the hospital to ensure everyone was comfortable and through the entire process - this has been one of the best and most enjoyable times of our lives. Adoption is a very stressful and emotional process for adoptive and birth parents. Rideout Law Group ensured all paperwork was timely filed and has supported us through the entire process. We will forever be indebted to Brad Rideout and Topher Margolis. Thank you for making our family possible!

There is none better!!
If you want the best lawyer out there breads one if you put money down on another lawyer go get your money back Brad's the one you want. I was up against two felonies the deck was stacked against me they were offering a deal plead guilty to one felony dropped the other because if found guilty on both I would have went to prison so I was going to take the deal and not risk it but Brad wouldn't let me most lawyers want to cut deals and move on to the next case that's not right out law Brad rolls up his sleeves, sets his pen down, looks me in the eyes, and tells me don't do it let's go to war! It was one of the scariest decisions I've ever made. I'm a free man because of Brad the best I could tell anyone hey don't even think about using anyone else!!

GREAT REPRESENTATION!
Mr. Rideout and his team were absolutely great! Mr. Rideout sat down with me one on one to review the full details of my case, a plan of attack, and possible outcomes. Mr. Rideout and his team were with me every step of the process, explained exactly what I needed to do, explained exactly what his team was doing, and kept me up to date with details of my cases and it processed. Knowing all of the things and parts working on my case from my standpoint, his team's standpoint, and the court's standpoint really brought me comfort and ease. During one of my court proceedings, there was a small hiccup from one of his team members (not him himself). I understand fully that Mr. Rideout is a busy man and is not able to personally represent his clients on every court proceeding. I totally get it. I had brought this small hiccup to Mr. Rideout's attention and he went above and beyond to correct it for me and did everything he could to better my experience while I was his client. He even came to represent me personally in my court proceedings on a few occasions. I really appreciated that since my case was so sensitive to me. I 110% percent would go back to Mr. Rideout's office should I never need to (lets hope not). They treat you with care, compassion, and make sure you understand everything that is going on. Truly a great guy and a great team he has there.

Always Available
Mr. Rideouit or one of his assistants are always available and if I felt I needed to talk to Bradley only, he retuned my calls in a timely manner. I have never been in this position before, but Bradley and his staff always kept me calm and informed.

Better Than The Best
Brad Rideout Law Group came to me thru "Divine Intervention". I had a felony warrant for ten years. Over a twenty dollar drug sale, I was facing almost 9 years in AZ. state prison. It was time to turn myself in and take care of myself...With family, friends, and pray we found Brad. The Confidence and Professionalism of Rideout Law Group is Superior. We personally had the pleasure to work with Brad, Melissa Barry and Topher, they were always respectful, cheerful, and knowledgeable, they also treated us with dignity. Since I was out of state, each and every time I had to call the office or the office called us, they made sure everything was complete, and in order. We had just purchased airplane tickets for the court date, the office called and said the court date was postponed, I told them about the tickets and they called back within the hour and said that a judge was found and we can keep the current court date. They have an online portal and everything is right there, easy to use. Brad never made me any promises, but what he said he did, my case turned out better than I could ever have wished for. No time, No fines, a small probation. Now, I'm on top of the world. TEAM WORK MAKES A DREAM WORK

The "BEST"
I am a Black American, and Honorably Discharged Veteran who held an executive management position for the Bullhead City Police Department that was falsely accused and consequently charge with; Aggravated Assault, and Obstructing Governmental Operations. To be honest I did not think I could get a fair trial in Mohave County let alone being found NOT GUILTY on the Aggravated Assault charge, and having the Obstructing Governmental Operations Charge Dismissed. I want to sincerely thank Attorney Bradlee Rideout of Rideout Law and his staff for helping me through this difficult trial, and for ensuring the best possible outcome on my behalf. I am so grateful to them for representing me in court, and for being a powerful advocate for me throughout these difficult times. Thank you so much for your passionate, thoughtful, and brilliant work. Rideout Law saved my life going forward!

Wouldn't have our daughter without Rideout Law!
My husband and I hired Rideout Law when DCS didn't want to do what we saw was in our foster child's best interest. They fought for our family and daughter when no one else would. Ultimately the judge agreed with the Rideout team and not with DCS. Topher, Wendy, and Brad are wonderful in the courtroom. I would highly recommend them to anyone adopting or having issues with DCS.

Aggravated OUI
I highly recommend Brad Rideout! So let me start from the beginning. I have never been in trouble before. I was looking at 3 felony charges due to the fact I had 3 minors on the boat with us. I was scared and stressed to say the least. I called a dozen attorneys in the bullhead area... I only had contact with assistants thus far. Brad is the only attorney that returned my phone call. Brad gave me a free consultation, taking all the details of my case. No promises of the outcome but he was confident in the Law and his skills to see me through. His experience and knowledge was reassuring. Brad also took the time to speak with my husband. We had multiple phone calls prior to choosing him. Brad was not pushy about payment he seemed genuinely concerned about reassuring me that things were going to be okay. He was right! Everything came back better than I expected!! We got what we wanted & better! No felonies!! No jail!! I am very thankful and happy we went with Brad Rideout.

Marijuana transportation from out of state
Brad was extremely helpful through the entire process. He fought extremely hard for a reasonable deal, he was always a phone call away if I had any questions, and always kept me informed of my situation and the different possibilities that could have happened. This case being from out of state had been more stressful with the travel, but brad has been as helpful as possible with the traveling process for signing.

Professional, dependable and a Fantastic Attorney!
I was referred to Brad Redeout by another attorney. Brad is easy to get ahold of and talk to. His fees are reasonable, and his staff is courteous and knowledgable. I hired him to resolve an OUI matter. He negotiated with the Prosecutor for me and was able to arrange a fair and reasonable "Stipulated Guilty Plea" that I'm quite happy with. During the course of the matter, he and his staff remained available, and kept me up to speed with phone calls and a neat document sharing online portal that sent me emails to view documents as they became available. I'm extremely happy with Brad Riteout and his firm, and I highly recommend Riteout Law.
