Earlier this year, I found myself with a civil judgment against an debt collector in Atlanta. Long story short, I ended up hiring Ryan to enforce the judgment since I was not admitted in Georgia. Fast forward a few months later and the judgment is paid-in-full thanks to Ryan's efforts. Needless to say, I endorse Ryan without reservation.
