- Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague
Mr. Ridley and I are in a networking group, and regularly refer clients to each other.
- Same Client
As a real estate lawyer I occasionally have clients that need assistance with a criminal defense issue, and similarly Mr. Ridley refers some of his clients to me that have real estate issues.
Continuously over the last 10 years.
As a former District Attorney, Mr. Ridley has a firm understanding of the process, and has earned the credibility with those involved, not to mention the fact that he's a gifted counselor (which is why he also teaches law school at Pepperdine).
Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:
Mr. Ridley is always 3 steps ahead as he understands and effectively advocates his position, but he already knows and understands the position of others, all due to his knowledge of law and how its applied (which is also evidenced by the fact that he teaches law school at Pepperdine).
I have seen Mr. Ridley effectively analyze and argue issues in such an effective way that not only is he able to convince the judge of his position, but also the opposing attorney as well. It takes a experienced legal practitioner to do that.
One of Mr. Ridley's many strengths is his ability to communicate issues and positions in an effective way, and to create an instant rapport with his audience. This makes him invaluable as a legal advocate, and especially effective as a professor of law at Pepperdine where he teaches criminal procedure.
Mr. Ridley regularly teaches ethics classes to various groups, and I have been fortunate enough to participate in some of his lectures. His knowledge, experience and understanding of ethical issues is surpassed only by his cooperative and professional nature.
