My case was a bit challenging since i also had lawsuit from one of my credit cards and were in the process of filling for bankruptcy. Mr. Ridley did an excellent job in my case even do it took a bit long but at the end it was worth it the wait. Thank you for your hard work Mr Ridley!

In a search for legal counsel re: debt relief, my contact information was forwarded to several attorneys. Mr. Ridley promptly contacted me. Since I had never had the need for legal help, I was a bit wary moving forward; but, after speaking to Eric for about 20 minutes and explaining my situation, he immediately put me at ease that there was a solution that would help lift the burden of credit card debt that I was mired in. He gave me some options on what could be done and clearly explained the effects of each one in a way I could understand. We proceeded with a plan that would benefit me and free me from the pressure of mounting debt. Eric was able to skillfully negotiate settlements with all my creditors at a highly reduced rate. From beginning to end, Eric provided excellent communication and guidance.

I was skeptical at first calling Eric because this was my first time filing bankruptcy. But everything turned out AWESOME! Here is my story/reason...
Started in February. I didn't want to make a quick decision on how to stop the wage garnishment that was about to take effect in a week. Persolve was able to get a judgement against me to collect over $4K + $.86 a day for interest until paid off. This meant that they were going to take out 20% of my pay every bi-weekly check before tax. I was a bit scared after talking to Eric when he told me at the end of consulting me, a bit over an hour, that to use his services I had to deposit a cash payment in-full into his account before he does anything. Plus all paperwork will be taken care of through emailing. For all I know he could have been a scammer. So I went home that night and did a ton of searching over the weekend. To me he checked out to be legit. The other places I called to see their prices, there was one that could have done it for me for cheaper but the process of filling out papers, submitting them and then getting everything else done AND paying for court fees would have taken A LOT longer. Basically the company I called only provides the paperwork and helps you fill it out and submits it to the court, that's all. So I was down to the last few days to get something done before the pay period ended and they were going to garnish my wages. I ended up texting Eric to let him know I needed to get this done ASAP. So I went to the bank to deposit the cash (cash clears faster) after work and he started working on my case right away. We got everything done in 4 days. Then he got me an appointment for my case in two weeks from the day he filed my papers. Ending result, everything was discharged and it took a while for my money that was garnished so far to be sent back to me. But like Eric told me, "Once your case is discharged, the sheriff will take a while getting the money back to you but you will get it." It took about a month but I finally got it! :) Just to let you all know reading this, I waited a while to write this review to make sure everything went well and smoothly. I believe Eric did a great job and I will recommend him to anyone who needs to file bankruptcy. I hope my review has helped. Eric, if you are reading this, thank you again! Of course, if there is anything else regarding my case, I will contact you.

I am a senior in a mobile home on limited income with a situation that was very threatening to my finances. I needed a good, strong attorney that was knowledgeable in a specific area. After much research, I found attorney Eric D. Ridley.
He was very patient with me and gave me very wise counsel. For a small reasonable fee, he wrote a strong letter to the person threatening me. He did not recommend a long lengthy lawsuit to try to get money out of me. This letter took care of the situation for a time. Then after six months this person came after me again with an attorney.
Mr. Ridley explained the various options and was very patient with my questions and phone calls in this nerve-wracking situation. I am not in a financial position for a long, lengthy court battle (even if I won) so I decided to let Mr. Ridley negotiate a settlement.
I was amazed at each letter that he wrote to the opposing attorney. They were wisely structured as he first "connected" with the attorney, then pointed out specific legal cases in my favor, offered a settlement that I could handle, and strongly concluded that we would not be going back and forth in this negotiation.
I was surprised and extremely pleased with the amount of the settlement, and I am so relieved to get this situation out of my life.
I believe no other attorney could have done better than Mr. Ridley. He gave attention to every detail of my case, he responded to my calls on the same day I placed them, he responded immediately to the opposing attorney's communications. During this process, I learned that I could trust him to truly act in my behalf.
I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Eric Ridley to any of my family, friends or business associates.
If you want an excellent attorney that cares about your case, is knowledgeable in various fields, responds to your calls and doesn't charge you for every minute he's on the phone with you, and is a TIGER with your opposition, then he's your man.

We did plumbing work for a Management Company that manged Vons Grocery Store and the bills came out to 19K 1/20/15. This was an Emergency job cause it was Super Bowl Weekend and we had to do the work at night so that Vons was ready to go for the weekend. I invoiced the job to the Management company Net 30 days . I called for payment on the 40th day explaining that the bill was past due and I needed payment status. I was told that the Company who Hired us was bought out by another Company. Well I tried for almost 2 years to collect this money , and of course I got sent from one Company to another and No one felt that they were responsible to pay the bill . I then went on line looking for an Attorney to ledigate this for me knowing it was going to cost thousands of dollars , but I felt it was necessary that someone was help accountable for paying us for the Work that we did in good Faith . Well I found Eric Ridley and let me tell you that he was Honest , Straight no hidden fees and settled my case within 2 weeks from the time we hired him. We most DEFINITELY will have Eric Ridley on SPEED DIAL in case we ever run into this problem again. So if anyone ever runs into the situation that we did , I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CALL THE LAW OFFICES OF ERIC RIDLEY @ 805-244-5291. Thanks Eric for your Professionalism and your due diligence Greatly Appreciated .

After meeting with several lawyers that I was not totally comfortable with, I did some research online and came across Eric. He lived up to all the great reviews I read. From our first consultation, I knew Eric was the right attorney for me. He was personable, answered my questions, was responsive when I had additional questions, and was a pleasure to work with. I loved too that Eric is set up digitally which made life a lot easier when having to complete all the paperwork. Thank you Eric for making what can be a stressful process much easier to get through. If you are looking for a great attorney, I highly recommend Eric!!

I hired Eric Ridley to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. He was extremely helpful and always available for any question I had. My bankruptcy went through without any hassle.

I was very satisfied with my decision to hire Eric Riley. I was being sued! He explained what I needed to know and do to handle my situation. He answered all my questions promptly. He was very patient with me and made me feel at ease. He was very up-front about everything I needed to know. He was able to lower my debt and we settled last week for an amount I can afford. Thanks again Eric Riley.

Eric is awesome! We did not have an easy case, and I will be forever grateful for his willingness to take it on and persevere until he was able to negotiate a fair and amicable solution. He lifted a huge burden off our shoulders. He was available and was a pleasure to work with. I will call Eric the next time I need an attorney and give him the highest recommendation without hesitation.
