Great, responsive lawyer!
Made a really dumb decision last year in the heat of the moment resulting in charges that could have cost me my career and livelihood. I hired Ryan to assist me, and it was pretty last minute. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He is also very knowledgeable and familiar with processes in the area he serves. Ryan was reliable, always on time and responsive to email and text. He contacted the town prosecutor right away. My case never made it past the magistrate. Ryan was honest and up front with fees, and I was charged exactly as agreed.

Best Defense Lawyer around!
Attorney Ryan P. Sullivan is nothing short of amazing. When I got into trouble I was so scared but Ryan reassured me he would help me and everything would be ok. I immediately felt relief considering I had never gotten into trouble before I was very nervous. Thankfully I found attorney Sullivan because he won my case for me. He always returns calls or emails in a timely manner, treats his clients kindly, he is professional, trustworthy and he will work hard to make sure you get the best defense possible. I highly recommend using him if you need a REMARKABLE defense attorney. He is the best you will find! Thank you Ryan for everything!

Driving citations
Attorney Ryan Sullivan represented me in the Lowell District Court for 2 of my driving citations. And he won both of the cases in my favour. Which saved my driving license from being suspended because of my driving history. He was very professional and patient in listening to my side of the story and argued the case accordingly to my favour. I was 100% satisfied in the job he did. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who needs a good representation for their case.

He was refereed to me by a family friend. I researched him and saw he was the highest rated lawyer in the Lowell area. So I booked a consultation and i could tell just from our first meeting that he was the lawyer that I needed to hire for my case. He worked very hard for my case and got me a win. I highly recommend him.

Highly Recommend, Excellent Attorney
Ryan has been an outstanding lawyer. After finding Attorney Sullivan online and reading many positive reviews, I contacted him in regards to a few criminal charges and a few civilian charges all due to a car accident. He was very quick to get back in contact with me and so knowledgeable. I contacted him a few weeks prior to my first hearing and he was willing to meet with me as soon as possible to hear me out and go over it all. Ryan is very well respected in court and has really walked me through the whole process step by step to help me better understand every possible outcome for my case. Though I did not believe I would have such a great outcome I did not lose faith that Ryan would help me through it all. He was able to get my charges dismissed in such a short amount of time. I truly could not thank him enough for all his help! I would definitely recommend Attorney Sullivan to anyone.

Highly Recommended, Very knowledgeable!
I was referred to Ryan and am so grateful. Being a young male, I made a stupid mistake. Ryan walked me through the process, which he knows very well. One of the most important things he advised me of was to learn patience. I just wanted it finished. But some things take a long time and can't be rushed. He was there to advise me the whole way, and was very good about answering my parents questions (a lot of them). In the end we went to trial and my sentence was reduced. Ryan was extremely well prepared. I am very happy with the outcome and I can not thank Ryan enough. I would highly recommend him.

We found Ryan online, and after reading many positive reviews, we contacted him. Our initial meeting went well, he was knowledgeable and straight forward. During the process, we was upfront with information and responded quickly to emails and phone calls. He was respected in court and really came through on my case, even when I didn't think it was looking too good. I am thankful for his expertise and hard work. I would definitely recommend him as a lawyer to someone needing support during a driving offense.

Trustworthy, considerate and caring.
Trustworthy, considerate and caring are the words I choose to describe attorney Ryan Sullivan. In a time period of 2014 / 2015 I was wrongfully accused of violating a restraining order on two occasions. The moment Attorney Sullivan took my case, I knew I could trust him. In the number of months attorney Sullivan helped me, I learned to know him as a professional and caring person at the same time. Though time has passed, the memories about his work ethic have urged me to write this review... At the beginning of our relationship, Attorney Sullivan told me, "I will do for you, whatever brings the best results." He remained true to this statement. He spent hours reviewing possible strategies and scenarios, never once staring at his watch. Attorney Sullivan was patient describing every detail to me. In the court room, Attorney Sullivan was focused, informed and in control. I never lost that feeling of being "in trustworthy hands" for a minute. I would highly recommend Attorney Sullivan to anybody.

Well prepared, well educated, solid experience and respected
july 2013, I was charged with 2 driving offenses and both had minimum jail time had I been found guilty. I was charged by 2 police officers. My primary goal in hiring an lawyer was that they would be thorough, caring, knowledgeable and respected. My first meeting with Ryan verified to me his knowledge and experience. The first time we appeared in court together, I could tell by the reaction of the court officers and judge, he was highly thought of and had total respect of his peers. Ryan worked diligently for over 30 months, using his legal prowess and experience to work my case thru to trial. One charged was dropped at a motion hearing that floored the D.A without any rebuttal. I felt like I was in the presence of Perry Mason..Eventually, the other charge went to trial with a non sympathetic judge and a jury of 6. After 2 days, I was found not guilty and left the court and went home to my family. I take great pride in my relationship with Ryan. He is a terrific human being and a great lawyer. If you need an attorney, hire Ryan Sullivan... Jim

Can't imagine a more capable and reassuring attorney to have on my side
I am so grateful to have been referred to Ryan. I came to him with three separate driving-related incidents, all of which were causing me immense anxiety and potentially putting in jeopardy my ability to keep my driver's license. He is incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate, and the fact he is a former DA translates into invaluable experience that he puts to work in favor of clients. He explained to me exactly what to expect, the outcome we are striving for, and gave me the tools and information to feel at ease and in control while I navigate this ordeal. My cases are still ongoing, but I am so thankful to be working with him. He is incredibly responsive, and somehow seems to always be available to answer any questions! I drove an hour to see him, and I would recommend him to anyone in the state of MA; that's how much confidence I have in him and his resourcefulness.

Awesome Attorney - Ryan P. Sullivan
Ryan is an outstanding attorney and one of the nicest, thoughtful and most detail-oriented lawyers I have ever met. I was referred to him by another attorney who recommended Ryan could help me resolve a moving violation I received on Rt. 9 highway in Wellesley, MA heading to Boston. The police officers on that stretch of Rt. 9 can be particularly tough as they frequently pull people over. Ryan took the time to get to know me, understand every detail/aspect of the case, and put together an outstanding Defense argument for my hearing. Ryan was extremely organized and strategic in his approach and we won the case as the judge found me Not Responsible. I strongly recommend Ryan for anyone that needs a defense attorney for moving violations, motor vehicle offense, criminal defense for misdemeanor or felony offenses or even other general litigation. Ryan has a broad range of expertise and an impressive history of experience. Bottom line, he's FANTASTIC.

Attorney Sullivan successfully had a twenty year restraining order against me vacated!!!
Attorney Ryan Sullivan successfully had a twenty year old restraining order against me vacated at the Concord District Court. Attorney Sullivan filed motions and affidavit's in my behalf before the court date, spoke clearly and professionally during my court hearing, and cross examined the accused without resorting to bully tactics. He also suggested that I get two letters from people that know me that would accurately describe my moral character. He said everything that was essential to the judge to get the restraining order against me vacated. Attorney Sullivan was a professional over the telephone, email, and in person. He is a former prosecutor and now a defense attorney. He is well known and respected at the Concord District Court. If you need a defense attorney in the Concord District Court area, then I highly recommend Attorney Ryan Sullivan.
