  • Michael C. Cyr

    Ryan is a great guy and a terrific attorney. We met at a conference for the National College for DUI Defense at Harvard Law. We're both originally from MA and share a passion for great trial defense. DUI is a complicated and ever-changing area of law that requires great knowledge and constant study. Ryan goes above and beyond with his clients and I would heartily recommend Ryan to anybody facing a serious DUI charge in Arizona.
