    Ryan is one of the sharpest criminal defense attorneys I know. I first worked with Ryan while I was a prosecutor and he was a public defender. We were opposing counsel, adversaries! Even in that situation, it was clear how Ryan would go the extra mile for his client's. Ryan genuinely cared about all his client's and was the utmost professional. I then had the privilege to work side by side with Ryan as a fellow colleague in the Anaheim City Attorney's Office. While working with Ryan, I would consult him on most of my cases, he has a brilliant brain. Ryan has the rare ability to take a complicated case and focus on the most essential issue(s). I have seen Ryan break a complex case down and simplify the legal and factual issues for a jury. Ryan also has people skills like no other, Ryan is authentic and funny! He absolutely has been the best co-worker I have had during my 16 years of practicing law. I am a better attorney because of Ryan. He has my utmost respect.
