Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Ryan is a great attorney. He is always thinking about maximizing the compensation the client receives from any type of injury case. He does not just try for the easy and cheap settlement, as some lawyers do, but actually has the skills to take a complex case to trial. Those skills make the insurance companies take him very seriously. Anyone who hires him could not ask for a more conscientious attorney. I recommend him very highly.
