I have needed the Rittgers & Rittgers firm on two separate occasions, in 2002 for a DUI charge that went to a jury trial and now in dealing with two separate incidents in Butler and Hamilton counties. My father is a local judge and was in private practice for many years. Both times he suggested Rittgers & Rittgers and both times I used their services. I was found not guilty of a DUI after taking it to a jury trial on the advice of Charlie Rittgers Sr. In my latest situations Charlie Rittgers Jr. brought both to a more than satisfactory resolution. I have nothing but the best to say about this firm and I would suggest that anyone who finds themselves in need of legal counsel take their case to Rittgers & Rittgers.

He gave me my life back. I can think of no higher praise. He knows the law and he listens and fights for his client. His advice is sound and in the client's best interest. Thank you Mr. Rittgers.

A Wonderful Law Firm. I recently had a legal issue arise which was very touchy for me, and I was referred to Rittgers & Rittgers as THE firm to contact in Warren county. Several people suggested Rittgers & Rittgers, and the strongest recommendation came from a lawyer who did not have expertise in the area that I needed. Charles Rittgers Sr. was extremely easy to work with and was able to resolve my issue most effectively. Everyone else that I came into contact with at the firm was equally professional. I most wholeheartedly recommend Rittgers & Rittgers to anyone looking for a lawyer.

- Tim O.

Charlie and his entire staff are caring and focused on good results. I came to the law firm to find a good injury lawyer for a friend of mine. The firm was the best firm we interviewed and the result they obtained was greater than either of us expected. The case was settled before trial.
