Charlie M. Rittgers defended my father during a jury trial. My father was found NOT GUILTY on the charges of sexual imposition and intimidation of witnesses. These were very serious charges and if found guilty my father would have become a registered sex offender, had to move out of his home because of its proximity to a local church and served jail time. Charlie Rittgers proved to be an outstanding attorney during the entire daunting legal process and shined in the court room. His defense of my Father was brilliant and he commanded the respect and trust of the Jury throughout the trial. I would highly recommend Charlie M. Rittgers to anyone looking for a defense attorney who is not only extremely talented and successful but also honest, caring and just an all around good person.
