Compassionate and understanding attorney Derek assisted me with my divorce. He was understanding, empathetic and always answered his phone. He went above and beyond to make sure I knew the process and was supportive of my decisions. If I ever need legal assistance in the future he will be my attorney I call.

Reliable and Professional Derek Ritchie is a professional and very reliable attorney. As a single mother fighting for what's fair and best for my kids, Derek made the divorce process simple and less stressful. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders once he took on my case. It was a great feeling to know that I had him on my side. I highly recommend his legal services!
