I retained Ryan to defend me for a misdemeanor traffic citation. I found that Ryan's experience and expertise with this issue was superb. He is affiliated with a bigger company called SHOUSE Law Group. He was able to negotiate a deal that ultimately reduced the misdemeanor to a traffic infraction/parking ticket and therefore left me with NO criminal history or conviction on the original charge. Ryan himself was pleased and surprised with the minimal fine that was imposed. Ryan ultimately saved my life, job and family due to a one time mistake. THANKS RYAN!

Ryan is fantastic! He's worth his weight in gold and totally helped rebuild my life by defending me. Professional, assertive, aggressive, and no-nonsense. He's the genuine article and sincerely believes in defending the accused. He's a good man and a GREAT attorney.
When I was arrested and charged I was really freaked out. One phone call to Ryan and everything was better. He had a professional game plan, a very calm demeanor, and was honest about all possible outcomes -favorable or not. By the time we reached arraignment, Ryan had given me enough confidence so I could continue living my life.
Throughout the case communication was always prompt and detailed. Ryan employed several confidence inspiring tactics when defending me, which always left me with the impression I had a real fighter in my corner. He began the case very mild mannered and cooperative, but when the DA tried to steam roll me, he ramped up and became very aggressive. By the time the case was dismissed, he had built an avalanche of evidence that pressured the DA into submission.
At the conclusion of the case, even the DA said, "your attorney is very good!" He's a force to be reckoned with and the kind of person you want to have in your corner.

I met with several different lawyers before hiring Ryan. The reason I hired him was because he spent the most amount of time with me during our first consultation where the other attorneys seemed mostly interested in pressuring me to sign up quickly. Ryan listened to what I had to say and never treated me like my case was unimportant even though it was just a misdemeanor, and I know that at the time he was working on much more serious cases. The best part was that he was able to resolve my case without me ever having to go to court. If you're in a legal pinch he's definitely worth it!!!

He is a good attorney although he can do a lot more to be better. He could have been more helpful. He worked my case and compared to other cases my outcome should have been better than the one I had to pick because of him.

Back in 8-5-14 I was arrested and charged for two counts, illegal growing marijuana and fire arm enhancement. I felt lost and did not know what to do. so I started to look online and found Mr. Ryan Friedman, I hired Ryan to represent my case. His knowledge of criminal law and effective defense strategies has enabled him to keep my self and many of his clients charged with drug crimes out of jail. Ryan is not just a lawyer, he is also a good friend, he treated me like a friend, especially my self, English is my second language, Ryan was patiently explained and make sure I understand. Thanks for all the helps and efforts, the bottom line is that the outcome of my case was 10x's better than I expected. thanks again

I hired Ryan for his expertise in the field of law that I needed, a DUI charge. He was excellent. He knew what to do, when to do it, and seemed to know the players in the system, to expedite our defense. My case has since been dismissed, thanks to his efforts. He is personable, professional, and thorough.
I would recommend him for any case in which you need representation.

I received a first-time DUI in October 2013 . After I was released from jail, I was absolutely terrified about the legal uncertainty facing me and my criminal court proceedings. I called Ryan for a consultation and within moments he brought stability, calm and decisive action to remedy my legal situation. His past experience in a D.A.'s office proved invaluable in negotiating a reduced penalty and sentence in my case. He turned what could have been a prolonged legal nightmare into a manageable and digestible legal process.
Ryan not only secured me a favorable legal outcome but, above all, he treated me not as just another paying client, but as a human being with feelings, concerns and ever-present anxieties. Whenever fear, uncertainty, doubts or concern over my legal fate overwhelmed me, Ryan did not hesitate to provide me with legal reality, comfort and determination to keep moving forward through the legal process.
I highly recommend Ryan for the following reasons: (1) he is compassionate and personable; (2) he is highly competent and skilled at what he does; (3) he has hired a highly skilled and prompt staff to facilitate clear and timely communications to his clients, the courts and opposing counsel; (3) he has the track record, pedigree and experience to secure favorable legal outcomes; (4) because he is a calming presence no matter what the circumstances are surrounding his handling of a case; and (5) because he will treat you as a highly respected and important client.
Ryan is a fantastic lawyer and you will be benefited greatly from going to him for your legal representation.

Over the past 15 years I have place myself in the regretful position of retaining the services of several different attorneys; 3 Criminal Defense and 1 Civil Defense. I have also worked with 2 other Civil Defense attorneys through my employers. I can safely say it is rare to find honest, hardworking attorneys with the level of integrity one would expect from someone in this line of work.
From our first conversation on our first case together to our last email correspondence closing out our second case together, Ryan has consistently provided me, and more importantly, my cases' with representation, diligence and knowledge of the Law one would expect to see from a high end celebrity attorney.
Ryan also listened.
He listened to my questions.
He listened to my uneducated suggestions and still proceeded to handle my misdemeanor cases as if he were handling a serious felony case, which would undoubtedly have been more profitable to him and his firm.
He listened after most would have given me the brush off and proceeded with my case as a slaughterhouse process beef without any human regard.
I will not tell you that hiring Ryan will guarantee a positive outcome in your case and my guess is neither would he. But I will tell you that by hiring Ryan you will get an honest, hardworking attorney who will exercise every option he has in getting the best outcome possible for your case.
I recommend anyone who has found themselves in need, to call Ryan and ask for his expertise.

I hired Ryan to represent me after being injured in an a car accident. Ryan made me feel comfortable throughout the process and was concerned about how I was being treated for my injuries. He always took time to answer my calls and got me a great settlement. I'm usually very stressed out dealing with insurance companies, but Ryan took care of everything. Amazing!

Got charged with assault because my girlfriend's uncle lied to the cops. WAs arrested for two felonies but Ryan got me out on OR and eventually got the whole thing dismissed after he exposed the truth to the judge and DA.
