Stan Riddle

In 1993, Mr. Riddle started his career in Washington, DC working as a legislative assistance for a US Congressional Representative. Later in his career, he advised clients on corporate mergers and acquisitions and real estate development. Mr. Riddle became a bankruptcy lawyer after discovering that it was much more satisfying to find solutions for those experiencing financial trouble. Especially after watching how debt collectors, banks and their lawyers harass and abuse consumers often forcing them into bankruptcy. Our firm recognizes that bankruptcy law can be complicated. That is why we provide free consultations to individuals that are facing foreclosure, credit card debt, lawsuits and wage garnishments. This meeting gives us an opportunity to explain your options. We can also handle same day emergency filings. As your lawyer, we will find the best solution to eliminate your debts and save your home. Stan Riddle is involved in every case.
