A Knowledgeable Legal Team That Is Ready To Help

After gaining valuable experience as a partner in other highly regarded law firms, Jefferson F. (Jeff) Riddell established our Sarasota-based practice in 1990. He is one of a select group of attorneys who have earned and maintained board certification from The Florida Bar, which requires extensive experience, testing and ongoing education. Jeff is a widely acknowledged expert on 1031 exchanges and a sought-after speaker and publisher on other issues relevant to our work at Riddell Law Group.

Our accomplished team also includes Cynthia A. Riddell, who focuses her practice on real estate closings, title insurance and probate administration. She has a keen understanding of the intersection between real estate and bankruptcy and other distressed property matters such as short sales. She also represents clients who are struggling with foreclosure, clients who are having trouble keeping up with their bills, and clients who are struggling with tax disputes with the IRS.

Take Control Of Your Situation

You have the right to choose your own counsel in any real estate transaction, tax dispute, probate dispute or bankruptcy action.

Please make the most of that opportunity and consider that:

  • We maintain a cohesive, service-oriented team dedicated to providing personalized communication that is unmatched by other firms.
  • When we say “full-service, contract-to-closing” representation for commercial and residential purchase transactions, we mean exactly that — and our clients have ready access to attorneys prepared to effectively address any complications that arise in a transaction.
  • Our attorneys understand how a real estate transaction can intersect with other areas of the law, which is why we also offer a comprehensive range of services related to probate and estate planning, tax disputes and bankruptcy.

The experience and credentials of the counsel you choose could make all the difference in resolving your legal matters. To sit down with a Florida attorney who will prioritize your needs and be conscious of your costs every step of the way, please contact the Riddell Law Group today to schedule an appointment at either our Sarasota, Venice, or Lakewood Ranch, Florida, locations.
