You are the essence of a really great lawyer. Thank you so much!
Eric Ridley has to be my favorite Lawyer of all time.
He helped me out tremendously being the executor of a family trust. I would give him 10 out of 10 no doubt! He did such a good job for me that I recommended him to all my other clients in need of great lawyer.
Eric is more than just a “Lawyer” he is a true warm friend who makes always himself available when needed and genuinely cares about his clients which is hard to find these days.
I respect how he always puts integrity first!

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.
You assisted with my bankruptcy in July 2017. It was discharged in October 2017.
I obtained a credit score of 721 in October 2019.
I now have unsecured credit cards:
I'm also a personal guarantor for a new business that I started, and I now have over 20 trade lines of credit which includes:
I taught my sons ages 25, 18, and 9 everything that I learned throughout the process.
My 25 year old has a 715 credit score, and my 18 year old had a 727 credit score on his 18th birthday.
My 9 year old can teach a credit 101 course.
I appreciate you being part of my credit journey, and the experience has blessed the lives of me and my sons. Thank you!
I had a great experience working with Eric, he was very helpful and knowledge assisting me with the bankruptcy. I would recommend Eric over and over again.
Thank you for all your help regarding my case. Eric Ridley has worked with me and my family to accomplish our goals. Very professional, and quick to respond to questions.
Absolutely helpful in guiding me through the processes. Always able to clearly explain any concerns I had within my case. I was able to get my debts cleared within 6 months. Best lawyer to have in tough times, it made the bankruptcy process easier to handle.
Eric did an excellent job creating our Living Trust. His work was very detailed and thorough, and at a very reasonable cost. I could reach him easily to discuss concerns or questions, and he offered great advice. His depth and experience with Estate matters is significant and trustworthy.
I didn't feel rushed when speaking with him as he took all the time needed to answer my questions. I will highly recommend Eric to others considering developing a Living Trust.
I plan to use Eric as our family attorney as I know if he does not have the expertise to help me with a particular question, he will know who to recommend.
My son came home from NYC as he got temp downsized.
Thanks to YOUR help , I’m contributing $785.00 per month to his student loan, plus his medical insurance, & now $500 per month to help his sister out with living expenses .
Anyway , if I was burdened with debt as when you met me, I couldn’t do this.
Capital One - one of the credit cards that approved me (23% APR LOL) sent me a car loan application.
A couple of months ago , any creditor I applied with rejected my application about as soon as I typed in my last name.
They approved $35K for auto loan which is encouraging so soon out of bankruptcy WITH a car repossession on the books !
We owe a huge personal debt of thanks to Eric that cannot be sufficiently paid in dollars or words. We can't say enough good about him, nor can we adequately express the depths of our gratitude in a Yelp review.
First, an explanation. Roughly three years ago, my sweetie hired him to handle what turned out to be a hotly contested bankruptcy case involving a staggering amount of student loan debt. As most folks know, student loans are virtually impossible to discharge in bankruptcy, even when there are mitigating circumstances, such as extended poverty, unemployment, or health problems on the part of the debtor.
Without going into personal specifics, this case was beyond difficult, even with a long list of good reasons why the debt should be discharged as an "undue hardship." Despite clear evidence that the situation was beyond hopeless, the U.S. Dept. of Education held the argument that somehow, somewhere, money was going to rain down from the sky to cover the 20-year-old debt. They insisted that the income-contingent repayment plan (which allowed the balance to exponentially spiral upward) was a sufficient remedy.
Eric has spent the last three years walking us through the process, holding our hands during our darkest moments, taking our calls at odd hours, and working patiently, diligently, and steadfastly on my beloved's behalf. He has battled hard for a very long time.
After three years of what seemed like an endless fight, my love has been freed of this tremendous albatross that has interfered with every aspect of his life. For the first time since he graduated college 22 years ago, he can walk upright without the crushing burden of gargantuan debt.
When you use the Yiddish word "mensch" to describe someone, it means that they are a person of integrity and honor. According to Leo Rosen, a mensch is "someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being 'a real mensch' is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous."
Eric Ridley is a mensch. I never use the word lightly, but it is the only word that can be used to describe him.
Thank you, Eric. Thank you.
His skills in the resolution of an estate are impressive. He solves the unusual. He listens and is concerned about liquidation and the heirs. He even took care of the COVID era complications regarding handling the disposition of the deceased.
A very caring and resourceful Attorney. I trust him.
Process went smoothly for me. I'm located in Ventura, and never had an issue with my case.
I've used other attorneys before, so the difference between them and Eric was that he was very flexible with payments and obtaining paperwork.
I didn't have to work with a paralegal. (Other places have you work with a paralegal, then maybe you get a chance to speak with the attorney if they aren't too busy) All paperwork can be completed online, which was awesome.
I'd recommend Eric Ridley to any of my family or friends.
Eric Ridley did a tremendous job handling my debt settlement case.
I was tied to a joint lawsuit that originated from being evicted alongside my family. We tried to leave it alone, but once the judgement was passed to a collection agency, it became a monster in all of our lives. And despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,
Eric was able to handle my case remotely for at an extremely fair and honest rate. I approached Eric with my case 2 years after the judgement was initially granted.
Within a week...A WEEK! Eric had been negotiated the debt to nearly 50% and I was able to settle the same day that the 50% offer was made. The monster that I'd been dealing with for 2 years suddenly gone within a week after just a few phone calls and emails with Eric.
Eric was available to answer any and all questions I had, and had all the answers to my questions. He is very professional and is a straight-shooter. He won't give sugar-coated BS answers. He will not shame you for being in whatever situation you're in. He will simply grab the bull by the horns and get you through your situation. On top of that, he is very much so interested in your financial rehabilitation afterwards.
As a result, he offers a free course teaching you how to boost your credit after a downturn. It's NOT a credit repair company. It is a course that you go through at your own pace, learning the principles for building a better credit score yourself. I would highly recommend Eric to be anyone's attorney when it comes to debt.
Thank you Eric, for all your hard work and dedication to my case. This review is NOT paid for. It is written out of gratitude towards Eric for settling my case.
You saved my life, out of debt and I don't think I could ever tell you how much you mean to me, I will keep telling people about your good work in my life.
Mr. Eric Ridley did my estate planning, will, trust, DPOA, Advanced Healthcare Directive and end of life planning paperwork.
This has significantly reduced a great deal of stress for myself since I had no idea where to even start and whom I would be able to trust with my personal details.
Mr. Ridley communicated very well and was honest and resourceful. He did an excellent job; very detailed oriented, thorough and educative. He explained everything step by step and communicated via email, which I appreciate since I am so busy.
This is something that I had been putting off for a while because I am always busy, but now I feel so much better knowing that if something where to happen to me at least my wishes will be legally supported. He replies quickly and has excellent professional demeanor.
Mr. Ridley made the entire process stress-free and it was completed in a timely manner. I have been recommending him to friends and family because he has what matters most to me; HONESTY and INTEGRITY.
He even guided me in how notarization works and referred me to a Mobile Notary Public who is trustworthy and professional as well. This is one of the best experiences I have ever had dealing with an Attorney and I appreciate his help.
It was not stressful at all and I wish I would have done it sooner to have peace of mind. He is truly a fantastic person in general and I wish to thank him from the bottom of my heart for his concerns for my wellbeing and his altruistic demeanor, words cannot suffice how much he has helped.
Thank you very much Mr. Ridley!!
I have worked with Attorney Ridley of the Law Offices of Eric Ridley for nearly two years.
He is unwaveringly humble, personable, and professional.
Everyone of his clients I have encountered has, in one way or another, always mentioned how reassuringly thorough he is with their matters; and, it speaks volumes about both him and his Law Office.
