  • William Franklin Nimmo

    I endorse this lawyer. Dwight Ritter is one of the toughest lawyers I know. I have known him for over 30 years and I can attest to how far he has come in the profession of law. He has risen to the highest levels of trial work and there are few people who can give a powerful closing argument like Dwight. He is a good person who can be trusted with serious matters.
