He Made This Fast & Painless

Eric's name was given to me by a friend of a friend and I've never been so grateful for a referral. I was looking at filing bankruptcy after a particularly nasty divorce and I needed some straight legal advice from someone who really had my best interests in mind. Eric was there for me every step of the way. He was so helpful in telling me exactly what to expect throughout the whole process and he was easily available to me any time I had any questions or concerns. That was probably the best thing about him - that he knew my concerns were important to me and he was so quick to respond. He made what could've been a truly terrible experience instead a fast, painless one.

Amazing Results & Personalized Service

Oh my gosh, you are amazing!! I sincerely believe it is due to your skills that it came out this good. Thank you so much for your hard work, your quick and efficient responses to their communications, your personal attention you gave to my small case (big to me), your in-depth research and extremely wise strategy and powerful wording to them. You took that “pit bull” to battle and won. Thank you, Eric. It turned out much better than I thought.

Life Is Back on Track

Thank you again for your representation in this matter and for the positive results. You have been instrumental in me getting my life back on track. Thank you again.

He Really Is "A Lawyer for the People"

I hired Eric Ridley during a very stressful time in my life. I had credit card debt with two different credit card companies, both of which had gone to collections. The day I got a letter of intent to sue from one of them I knew I needed help. I CALLED Eric Ridley because I liked that he referred to himself as “A lawyer for the people”, I HIRED Eric Ridley because he proved to be just that. I explained to Eric that I didn’t have much money, I am newly engaged and getting married this summer and the last thing I wanted to do was start my married life in debt. He worked with me on his pricing, and we came up with a number for his services we were both comfortable with. He returned every call, every text and every email from me promptly and never charged me to talk to him. He was patient and always answered every one of my questions in detail. I was comfortable and clued in throughout the whole process and he took my case on with fire and passion and treated it as though it was his own debt he was fighting for. The whole process took less than two weeks and he fought so hard for me that I ended up having to pay less than half of what I originally owed. He was worth every penny because, I know its cheesy but, to be able to start my marriage debt free is the most freeing feeling and I cant say thank you enough to him for giving me a clean slate and a fresh start. Thank you Eric Ridley!!

Room to Breathe

When I first got served with a collections lawsuit in 2014, I thought I could handle it myself. I didn’t want to pay extra legal fees for an attorney. Who had money for that? I did a lot of research online and spoke to about seven different law firms. Some even had “sales people” to convince you to hire their law firm - what a racket! I finally decided on Eric Ridley’s office because he was genuine, compassionate, a straight shooter, and his fee was very reasonable. Eric Ridley did an outstanding job in settling a lawsuit for me, for significantly less than what my initial bill was. He also was able to get me more “breathing room” so I had time to save up funds to pay for the settlement. Eric was easy to speak with, returned communications promptly, handled the legal aspects professionally and in a timely manner, and most importantly, took all the pressure of the lawsuit off my plate so I could focus on more important matters. He made my life much easier, and that was the biggest benefit of all. The settlement he negotiated was excellent. I highly recommend Eric Ridley’s legal services.

He's an Extraordinary Person

Although I was not Mr. Ridley’s client, Eric still helped me out with a complex legal issue over phone and e-mail. He replied within hours to my e-mail (not days.) His calm demeanor, rational approach (he did not sugar-coat the strengths/weaknesses of my case), and genuine level of caring really put me at ease, and helped push me in the right direction. Eric showed a lot of concern for my well-being, and went over the weaknesses and strengths of my case in great detail. His advice was VERY helpful: he did not sugar-coat anything, and even called me with any concern he had about me or my case. I would warmly recommend him. Eric is not just an extraordinary lawyer, but based on my experience, an extraordinary person. The phrase, “If more lawyers were like him, there would be no lawyer jokes” comes to mind :).

No Pressure, No Unnecessary Fees

I would like to start out by saying Thank You for helping me through this very tuff time in my life. I wasn’t sure if filing for Bankruptcy was the right thing to do. My parents raised me very well and this was the last thing I morally felt was right. I spoke with you about my situation and how I managed to get myself into so much debt. You talked to me about why in some cases filing may be the right thing to do. As you know I did make the decision the day I spoke with you. There was no pressure from you whatsoever. You were willing to talk to me about everything. I was fully aware of what to expect. I do admit I was afraid, without you I could not have made it through the process. When I needed reassurance you were there. Even weeks after my 341 hearing we still communicate. The day of the 341 hearing I was scared; after I spoke with you I knew everything was going to be alright. You were straight forward with the costs. There was no charges added on for extra phone calls, faxes, train rides, gas charges for your commute. Thank you again Eric!

Much Easier Than I Imagined

Thank you Eric. You really made this much easier for me than I could have imagined.

He Gave Me Hope & a Fresh Start

Making the decision to file bankruptcy is never easy. When I was deciding if filing would be right for me I spoke to my best friend at dinner one night. Little did I know she had filed a couple years earlier. She gave me Eric's name and number. I still wasn't sure what I was going to do at that point. From my very first conversation with Eric he explained everything very clearly. He gave me hope and helped me see that filing does not make you a lesser person. It's a fresh start. Throughout the process he was readily available (literally within minutes). I never felt like I was carrying this on my own. Filing for BK is not a happy experience but Eric made the experience as calming as it can be. I highly recommend him. Btw he also practices other areas than just BK :)

He Over-Delivered

Eric is absolutely amazing. 100% no joke, gives you the real deal exactly how it is going to be and then in my case (truly unbelievable) really over-delivered. I talked to probably 5 other attorneys before I found Eric and was very clear off the get go Eric knew what was up. Honestly, if I could use Eric as my exclusive attorney for everything I would. And actually anytime I need an attorney I am going to start with Eric and take the advice and direction he points me in. Really was great to work with and cannot stress enough to start with Eric and then go from there.

Skilled, Savvy, Genuine, & Personable

Eric is a true professional. He is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and patient, always with a pleasant uplifting tone to his voice. You can actually hear his smile as he remains positive while listening, always without judgment. Just knowing that he's heard it all, seen the worst case situations, there is peace of mind knowing that he truly does have your best interest at heart. I have hired Eric several times for various sticky legal situations and he has always been quick to respond, to answer my questions which at times have been redundant, and he translates the legal lingo into a layman language I can understand. He truly does have his client's best interest at heart and is not out to just take money. If there isn't a case, he will let you know almost immediately, never wasting your time and money. Eric is not only an impressive and quite skilled and savvy lawyer, he is genuine and personable. He is never pushy; he speaks with conviction and has genuine warmth about him. His rates are well worth the level of service he offers and his style of communication is beyond impressive. Legal battles of any kind can be a tenuous, stressful, and burdensome process so it is beyond valuable to have someone working with you who really is a lawyer for the people. Eric is very tech-savvy which minimizes costs and expedites procedures. I can't stress enough the importance of having a good and trustworthy lawyer. Eric is first rate all the way, and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

The Essence of a Great Lawyer

You are the essence of a really great lawyer. Thank you so much!


Kind, Knowledgeable, & Professional

Eric helped me out immensely with a legal problem and was very kind, extremely professional and knew everything possible to help me win the case. I'm hoping I never need to hire an attorney in the future but I know exactly who I will go to if the need does arise.
-Sally M.

Awesome Experience

Eric, is Awesome! Very responsive and follow-up is excellent. I was in quite a bind, and Eric helped me out tremendously. I would highly recommend him! He has your best interest in the palm of his hands. I was glad to do business with him!

Six Stars

I was in a bad way, as I was in the middle of a mortgage refi only to discover my house had a lien on it and didn't know why. I had a lender that was breathing down my neck for immediate remedy, and I needed help fast! After reviewing and speaking to five different attorneys' offices, Eric was chosen because of his speedy response and the fact that his website mentioned past dealings with the plaintiff in my case. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Eric is an outstanding attorney and human being -- a day later, the lien is being lifted, and the refi is going through. Throughout this whole process, Eric has been incredibly inclusive and communicative about every step that was being taken, and really helped make a bad situation so much less stressful because of his openness and honesty about all the possible outcomes in the case. He is incredibly timely and efficient. At times, I was starting to get the impression that he was even more impatient for an outcome than I, the client, was! He is very tech-savvy - constantly communicating via text, phone calls, emails, etc... like having a lawyer "in the cloud." I would give him six stars if I could and would not hesitate to recommend him for any legal matter.

A World of Difference

My first lesson over the last three years was, don't try to do it on your own, get a lawyer. My second lesson was, get a better lawyer. Luckily, that was the point when I found Eric Ridley and it made a world of difference. He knows his stuff. He does his best. He expertly guides you through processes that are new, often confusing, and difficult. He makes a difference. I am not at all surprised to find that there are so many others on here who feel the same way. We're lucky to have him.

Excellent Attorney to Have on Your Side!

Before I knew Eric Ridley, I was sued by one of my creditors and hired an attorney to represent me. He was on the case for over 7 months. All of a sudden he terminated my contract with less than 2 months before the trial! He never gave a good reason for terminating me. I had to find another attorney who would accept and take on this case. With only a few weeks before the trial I found Eric Ridley. Eric took on the difficult challenge of having to take over another attorney's casework and quickly went to work. He settled over $6300 of creditor debt including court costs. I only had to pay the creditor $500. Thank you Eric for relieving me of this very stressful situation with excellent results! Peace of mind is priceless.
-Jan V.

Terrific Advice & Accessibility

I selected Eric because his stated focus is people, not corporations. I figured this would mean that I would likely receive personalized, compassionate service from a legal professional. Mr. Ridley delivered exactly that. He represented me to the successful completion of my case. I experienced excellent legal representation, sound advice and a willingness to return phone calls and emails. He guided me through a process that otherwise would have been uncertain, ominous and intimidating and he made it a manageable and even hopeful experience. Eric cared about me and my concerns and for that I am grateful. Money well spent!
-Al G.

Beyond Helpful

I contacted Mr. Ridley about a student loan debt suit and he was beyond helpful. He did not back away from the challenge and was very professional and supportive and his responses to my emails were very quick which is very important to me because I am from Northern California and couldn't just walk into his office. He really is the kind of attorney you want to represent you because he truly cares about his clients and is willing to help as much as possible, it's clear to see from the moment you contact him.


I found Eric Ridley on the internet. I've never been one for just pulling attorneys off the Net, I've normally been referred to attorneys. In this case, I was wowed by Eric's professionalism, understanding to my needs and speedy assistance. Eric always answered all my questions in a timely manner, other times instantly! I gave Eric 5-stars because he is an excellent Attorney and I would recommend Eric Ridley to all my family and friends! Thank you Eric Ridley!
-JoAnn H.

Highly Commend Your Ability

Understanding, knowledgeable, and has the persistence to negotiate.

Thank you Eric for being my consumer law attorney and helping me expeditiously negotiating my past bump in the road. Resolving this discourse has never been more uplifting allowing me to focus on more important business matters. I look forward to utilizing your services in the future, and highly commend your ability as a consumer attorney.
