I have always used Jessica as my attorney for all my speeding tickets. When Jessica is your attorney, no need to worry. She represents you and resolves them without having to go to court.

I am an attorney but I do not handle criminal or traffic issues. Jessica had a parking-related ticket dismissed for me at the first hearing, which was great. I didn't have to deal with it at all - just turned it over to her and it went away. Even more importantly though, anytime I have a criminal component in one of my non-criminal cases, I can always rely on Jessica to give me accurate, timely advice, so that I can effectively assist my clients without placing them in danger of running afoul of the criminal law system, or placing their rights in jeopardy if they are already involved in a criminal case. She has already been fast to respond, efficient and accurate with her advice, and I always turn to her first when that sort of advice is needed. I absolutely recommend her!

Ms. Ritzmann helped me with my Child Support Modification and making changes to my Parenting Plan cases. She helped me understand exactly what was going to happen, how long it could take and was with me every step of the way. I would recommend her to any of my friends that need help in the family law area.

Ms. Ritzman is one of my go-to-lawyers, particularly whenever dealing with emotionally unstable clients and insane prosecutors. Not enough lawyers know how to help their clients with problems beyond their legal issues. Ms. Ritzmann is an advocate for the whole client, not just her client's case

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with Ms. Ritzmann on a very complex family law case. As an attorney new to family law, I found her to be an excellent mentor. She is a fierce fighter for her clients, yet always incredibly professional. Her compassion, grace, knowledge of the law, and genuine rapport with her clients is second to none. I enjoyed working with and learning from her.
