Tehachapi Estate Planning Attorney
Charles Nelson
Estate Planning Client
He did an excellent job; very detailed oriented, thorough and educational. He explained everything step by step.

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.

This is one of the best experiences I have ever had dealing with an Attorney and I appreciate his help.

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!
