About me

Doug Ridley brings his wealth of experience and relationships as a Former Deputy District Attorney to his DUI / Criminal Defense practice. His unique background gives him the insight into the system that is prosecuting you. His knowledge of the courts, prosecution and criminal court system can prove to be the difference in your case!

The best possible outcome can mean the difference between going to jail or NOT, having a Driver's License or NOT, the amount of fines associated with your charge or just flat out getting the case dropped!

Doug's trial record is nearly perfect, but will aim to get your case settled with the least amount of intrusion into your life, and the least amount of your time spent in front of the court.

DUI Defense, Drug Charges, Juvenile Crimes and many other Criminal Defense matters are handled regularly by The Law Offices of Douglas H. Ridley. Doug appears regularly in all of the court houses in Ventura County, Los Angeles County and Malibu.
