A History Of Passionately Defending Our Clients' Constitutional Rights

At Ritter & Edwards, our clients come first. We will passionately defend your interests, your constitutional rights and your future. When you work with our office, you will have two skilled attorneys working on your behalf, each contributing different perspectives and skills to strengthen your case. From our Oak Ridge office, we represent clients throughout eastern Tennessee in criminal defense, DUI and personal injury cases.

Attorney Michael Ritter has practiced law for more than 30 years, with a focus on criminal law and civil rights litigation, bringing a significant history of successful jury trials. In 2014, Jonathan S. Edwards joined him in private practice, bringing a commitment to finding innovative trial techniques and staying up to date on changing areas of the law. While we each have different backgrounds and perspectives on the law, we share a commitment to fighting hard for our clients in and out of the courtroom.
