I had hired Ryan back in 2009 to handle a bankruptcy and during a very difficult time he made it seem less stressful always answering questions, keeping me informed and going above and beyond, lord knows I had to be a difficult client as the 5 years it took to go through there were plenty of downs to get through and he was always there. I am a very picky person I have to feel comfortable and trust my legal representation and this encompasses Ryan. I will be using him again and recommending him for any need that arises
I retained Ryan Paddick. Personally I think that he is a very good lawyer. I stood In a very racist county, accused of a crime that didn't even take place. Every face in the courtroom was white, except for me and my family. Ryan had never experienced racism because he was white himself. But I saw him treated differently when he refused to play their little game. At first it was all business, Ryan read all of the facts of the case and the law in Pa. It seemed like a sure win based on the law. However we both would soon see that in some counties racism is still alive and strong. I saw other white lawyers giving Ryan dirty looks and treating him different. However he never wavered. In fact he cared. At one point outside of the courtroom he said said " I know this wouldn't be happening if you were white". I watched this man fight back tears giving his closing arguments to an all white courtroom,. The prosecutor had the nerve to accuse me of being the racist. So many things were being done underhandedly. Even part of the discovery had been withheld from other black Attorneys. Well all of a sudden when Ryan Paddick who is white shows up without the black lawyers they call him in the judges chamber and missing discovery shows up, but only to try to persuade him to stick with the good old boys and his own kind. Ryan left that chamber and shared what was discussed and the missing discovery with the other black attorneys. Why am I putting all of this on here? Because I believe based on my personal experience that Ryan M. Paddick is an outstanding lawyer. He could have turned a blind eye and act like this was all normal, but he spoke up and called it like it was. Even though I did not win in that courtroom, Ryan did not hesitate to come stand by my side to appeal the ruling in that racist courtroom. During the appeal it became known by the states key witness that coaching and misconduct on the part of the prosecution had taking place during the trial. So I'm speaking up fir Ryan Paddick because the loss wasn't on him. The good old boys had an axe to grind, but they are being exposed. Thanks Ryan for being not only a good lawyer, but a decent Human Being, and not being influenced by those evil ones who sought to destroy me and my family. (BUCKKKS COUNTY)
Ryan prepared my father's last will and testament at a nursing home. His price was affordable and Ryan only wanted a little extra money for gas due to travelling back and forth. Ryan is a very caring and personable man. He also had the technology with him to video tape my father and print out his will right on the spot. I highly recommend Ryan as a lawyer, and will be using him again soon for elder law care. He is our family's lawyer. He is married and has 3 children.
Ryan gave me the confidence to even pursue my case. I was ready to accept the unfair circumstances, but Ryan really believed in my case, in me, and in himself to be able to succeed-- and he did- we won ! Thank God for justice and for those who know the law. He is not an aggressive made- for- TV- type of lawyer which most people expect in today's world. Instead he is an educated and knowlegable lawyer who works very hard to find the answers. His briefcase is heavy, and his technology is up- to-date because he is ready to research anything brought up by the opposing party. He has a quietly winning demeanor by not offending any party involved with the case. I will be asking Ryan to perform several other functions in law, such as a will and advice on pensions etc. I highly recommend Ryan. He is fair in price, polite to all, and responds to phone calls and questions along the way. My friends and family are very happy and impressed with him, as am I. I am proud to now say that he will be my lawyer in any area that arises.
I would not recommend Paddick. He is arrogant. He will agree with you and then do what he wants to do, even when you specifically instruct him not to. He will also not do the things you specifically instruct him to do. He contact you to discuss matters that have nothing to do with your case with him, tell you that he doesn't represent you on these matters and then turn around and charge you for the work that he claims he did researching the very matters that he said he didn't represent you on.
I would highly recommend Ryan Paddick to anyone in need of an attorney, especially in the criminal defense arena. At such a crucial time in my life, where 12 people decide your fate, Ryan Paddick was able to prove to the court that the charges brought against me were false. He was very comfortable in the court setting and rose to the many challenges that were thrown our way. With Ryan Paddick representing me, and God on my side, my innocence was proven and I was found "not guilty" on all charges brought against me.
While working on my case, Ryan made it a point to make me feel as comfortable as possible. He was very knowledgable, methodical, honest, and hard working. He completed statements, court documents, and other paperwork precisely and accurately. He kept me very informed throughout the entire process and even communicated with my family when necessary.
Thanks to Ryan Paddick, not only was I acquitted in my criminal case, but we were able to receive a settlement in my civil lawsuit against the city. Ryan Paddick is great at what he does and he will always come highly recommended by me.
I have employed Mr Ryan Paddick as my lawyer to settle a real estate problem. In every instance he responded promptly to my phone calls and E Mails.
He got the job done promptly with all respect to detail. If needed I would not hesitate to call him again for any legal problem that should come up.
Sincerely, a satisfied client
Ryan"s a great attorney. He held my criminal case as well as my civil one. He was comprehensive and maintain with me an excellent client attorney relationship.
Ryan is young and full of enthusiam, however he lacks the connections and behind the scenes savy to get the best outcome, he also took advantage of my family by playing 2 sides against, give him 10 years then take your chance, I would'nt. He represented me in a very minor misdemeanor harrasment suit and took 9 months to get no where, then I hired a great attorney and in 2 weeks he had the charge dismissed!
This guy knowes what he is doing and saved me from a lot of trouble.
