    This is the lawyer for you if you want someone that is going to work hard for you, and get the best possible outcome that a lawyer can. Doug Riddell is top-notch! He has been my husband's attorney on three cases (OVI, violation of a protection order, and probation violation)...My husband kept his work driving privileges the whole time of his OVI suspension, and didn't have to miss work to go to court until the final hearing. Also he kept him out of jail. The protection order case was dismissed at the first hearing. The probation violation is still pending, but he has already done more than we expected, and we have complete faith that he will come through for us yet again. I stop short of calling him a miracle worker, but I would recommend him to anyone in a bad spot. He is affordable, and he really works hard for you. His honesty is refreshing! Look no further, as a phone call to Doug Riddell will be the best decision you make. Read less
