"I have worked with criminal defense attorneys as a private investigator (criminal defense investigator) since 2001 in three different states.  Sad, but true, that I can count on one hand the attorneys that I would trust to be intelligent and diligent enough to defend me or my family, if needed.  Among those elite advocates is Theresa Ristenpart.  Not only is she a zealous advocate for her clients and the justice that will win their freedom, she is immaculate in her representation. Theresa may not be well-known to you (she has no billboards or full page ads), but mark my words:  "She will be!!"  She is young, hungry, passionate, and with an extremely high level of intelligence and understanding of the nuances of the law and how to make the law work for her client she is impeccable at trial ... juries love her, prosecutors fear her, judges admire her, law enforcement respects her, team members love working with her, and clients are forever grateful to her.  Theresa's defense strategies are innovative and her style of trial advocacy is state-of-the-art.  From my perspective as a defense teammate of Theresa, she is the ONLY elite level attorney I have met that is truly hands-on.  She will crawl through the dirt with me turning over stones for new evidence, travel to quiz experts in person, test fire weapons, re-create event scenes, brainstorm new theories, and listen heartily to her clients.  While Theresa fully knows she is capable of great outcomes and that she ranks far above the average for attorneys overall, she is humble, open, appreciative, always learning (and teaching), and communicates with team members and clients at eye level.  She is very engaging, personable, and trustworthy.  Theresa is a phenomenon in the area of trial advocacy and genuine caring in the representation of her clients ... meaning there is no attorney like her.  While there are, as I say, some excellent attorneys all over, she is a rare mixture of everything someone charged with a crime wants and needs to represent them.  Theresa Ristenpart deserves to be at the top of any defendant's list for representation."

— April Higuera, licensed private investigator
