I am pretty sure this is the attorney who established Riddle and Associates. All of this information is available on the web with a little researching.
I called and asked them to please remove my name from their directory because the person they are seeking is not me and I do not know the person they are seeking.
Some jerk told me to "deal with it". Are you F*****g kidding me? I have been able to locate the home phone numbers of the attorneys by calling the Utah Attorney Generals office and then to the local police department to match up name with address with home phone numbers. So I guess I did deal with it.
Anyway, here is what I found on the web. By the way, if I receive another call from this firm I will start calling their homes at odd hours.
Pictures of Riddle and his family are published on the web in the Brigham Young Law Magazine.
jesse l. riddle understands the power of
education. For Riddle, a 1988 graduate of
the J. Reuben Clark Law School who now
runs a multimillion-dollar debt recovery law
firm in Sandy, Utah, the value of education
is no different for a student at a prestigious
university such as Oxford than it is for a student
at a tiny high school started by a community
of farmers in rural Mississippi.
Riddle has unique insights into such
seemingly divergent schools: At the same
time he serves on the board of regents at
Oxford University’s Harris Manchester
College, Riddle also occupies a position on
the school board of Centreville Academy in
“Serving on the Mississippi school board
is no less important than serving on the
Manchester college board at Oxford,” says
Riddle. “Somebody has to step up and make
At age 13 Riddle was forced to move
from his mother’s home in Texas to his
grandmother’s modest trailer house in
Centreville, where he eventually graduated
from Centreville Academy in a class of 25.
He attended Louisiana State University
before serving a Church mission in Hawaii.
Upon his return to the mainland, Riddle
enrolled at byu and studied speech, rhetoric,
and English. He engrossed himself in the
speeches of famous and infamous leaders
such as Winston Churchill, Hitler, Franklin
D. Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, George
Washington, and Abraham Lincoln.
“I was impressed that people could take
words and motivate other people to do certain
things,” Riddle says.
After earning a law degree, Riddle practiced
at a firm in Oregon before taking time
off to write a travel guidebook. In 1994 he
founded Riddle & Associates, which has
grown quickly to 60 employees and represents
on a nationwide basis clients such as directv,
Kroger, AutoZone, and Eddie Bauer.
Riddle & Associates processes an incredible
volume of work: the firm places two million
telephone calls per month and regularly
handles hundreds of thousands of debt collection
accounts simultaneously. Riddle himself
has become an expert on the federal Debt
Collection Practices Act, a topic about which
he speaks regularly to industry groups.
Riddle remains heavily involved in
devising firm strategy and maintaining
client relations, but he also devotes significant
resources to various educational causes.
Riddle and his wife, Lisa, fund two fulltuition
scholarships for Polynesian students
to attend the J. Reuben Clark Law School.
Riddle has traveled to byu—Hawaii to propose
establishing a prelaw program, and
he took several employees of Riddle &
Associates with him to Mississippi to install
computer and telephone systems that he
donated to Centreville Academy.
“Jesse and Lisa’s contributions to our
school have been unparalleled,” said Bill
Hurst, headmaster of Centreville Academy,
located 60 miles north of Baton Rouge.
“Jesse and Lisa represent the Christlike attitude
of giving freely unto others, especially
those less fortunate.”
Riddle’s involvement with Oxford originated
at a conference he attended there in
December 2001. While at Oxford he met
Lady Mary Soames, Churchill’s daughter
(“Here’s a kid from Mississippi meeting
Churchill’s daughter—think about that!”
Riddle marvels), former British prime minister
Sir Edward Heath, and Manchester
College principal Dr. Ralph Waller.
Riddle and Waller hit it off famously,
holding an impromptu but in-depth discussion
about British philosopher and religious
leader John Wesley. In the spring of 2002
Waller visited Jesse and Lisa Riddle and
their five children in Sandy. Riddle had by
that time accepted a position on the board
of regents of Manchester College, and
Waller brought a copy of the London Times
announcing Riddle’s appointment.
“My name was in the London Times, and
it wasn’t in the crime section,” Riddle jokes.
On a more serious note, he says, “It’s great to
be around people who care about education.”
In addition to attending regular board of
regents meetings at Oxford, Riddle has committed
to attend as many monthly meetings
as possible of the Centreville Academy board.
Although the two schools are worlds apart in
terms of scope and reputation, Riddle finds
“They both have financial constraints,” he
says. “They both worry about the curriculum.”
When it comes to the worries of a school
administrator, Riddle may be just learning.
But when it comes to the potential of education
to lift and inspire, Riddle has mastered
the lesson. Now he’s sharing that lesson with
students in rural Mississippi, at Oxford, and
at the J. Reuben Clark Law School.
“Who will be the leaders?” Riddle asks.
“The leaders will be the ones with education.”
