Principal Attorney

Mr. Ridgeway worked as a private security guard, armed guard, and patrol supervisor for six years before attending law school. He worked as a law clerk for the Orange County District Attorney and the Orange County Public Defender’s Homicide Division and was appointed a fellowship position at the Claremont Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence. After passing the bar on the first try, Mr. Ridgeway began practicing as a plaintiff’s attorney for mass tort victims firm in San Diego County where he helped recover over $50 million for his clients. Thereafter, Mr. Ridgeway transitioned to defense work and represented municipalities in real estate, use of force and wrongful death cases at one of Southern California’s leading municipal defense firms. Armed with experience on both sides of the aisle, Mr. Ridgeway has a keen ability to give unbiased and thorough legal advice to all types of clients.

About the Firm:

I take my professional and ethical duties to my clients and the public very seriously. The most important obligation being, of course, my duty to zealously advocate for my clients. I strongly believe that zealous representation includes timely resolving cases in a cost-effective manner. If liability is clearly adverse, I do not play games with discovery and legal maneuvering to drive up fees and delay the inevitable. I have the integrity to call it like I see it and will never let ego or money compromise my ethical obligations.

I run a small and efficient office and can keep costs down by minimizing overhead and carefully planning my client’s case. I like to maintain a team approach to litigation by involving my clients at each major step of the litigation process and carefully crafting their defense to suit their needs. Unlike high-volume law firms, your case will not be delegated to a junior associate with virtually no experience. I personally do the work and get it done right the first time.
