About Me

Ventura Attorney Eric Ridley

To me, you are never just another file. You are a good person going through a significant and meaningful experience. I’m here to help you get through it. I’ve been there, and as your  Ventura lawyer, I am 100% on your side, and in your corner. You need one person in your life that you can count on. Give me a call, or send an email or text.

As you can see from my picture, I have plenty of grey hair. I grew up in Ventura, and before I became an attorney spent much of my adult life working in and around Los Angeles, in the film and TV industry. I have owned and operated several internet marketing companies, and have done web design, search engine optimization and guerilla marketing & sales. I have renovated homes, invested in real estate, and own some rental properties.

The entertainment industry taught me about intellectual property, copyright, contracts, and entertainment law.

The internet industry taught me about the web, social media, contracts, defamation law, and litigation.

The real estate business taught me about homeowner’s association law, real estate law, landlord/tenant law.

And all of them taught me that, when someone is facing legal issues, those issues can become overwhelming and scary. Your job is to run your business and your life. My job is to take some worry off your shoulders and let you do what you do best.

I understand that sometimes a bankruptcy is the best and most responsible answer to your problems, and that it is nothing to be ashamed of. I also know, first-hand, how scary it is to even contemplate a bankruptcy.

And last, but certainly not least, I am a husband, and father of three teenage boys – so you know I have plenty of patience and perseverance!


I do this because to me, nothing – NOTHING – compares to the feeling of satisfaction I get when I’m able to help make a client’s life better, by solving their stressful problems, or by helping them out of a jam. I’m passionate about making your life better, easier and less stressful.
