Very professional. Great communication throughout.
My business instagram had been hacked and we simply were not getting anywhere on our own. I spoke with Ryan. He did a great job of laying out his strategy while also managing my expectations. The entire team at his firm was professional, responsive and friendly. In the end it took a little time but we got our account back. Just an overall great experience. Highly recommend.

Deborah is the best.
I called to ask about my case for a defamatory review that we received on our business page. I can't be more happy that Deborah was the one that picked up my phone call, since the very beginning I could tell that she loves what she does cause in her tone of voice you can tell that she's willing to help everyone from the heart. After a conversation of 40 minutes I dont gonna keep looking for more Law Firms instead of doing that. I'll call back to Deborah and that's why I've saved the phone number that I used to call. Thank you very much again for your help Deborah.

Ryan Branch brings creative solutions to the table
Take it from me. I’ve tried more than a couple of criminal lawyers and Ryan Blanch is great. A genuinely nice, professional, smart lawyer who thinks of creative ways to solve problems. He’s big on brainstorming with his people and includes you in the process. I felt like I was part of the team. And the result was pure magic. No one else I’d hired would ever have thought of what the Blanch lawyers did to win my case.

Excellent and Empathetic
I met with Mr. Blanch regarding a difficult situation I found myself in, and he took a good deal of time to provide me with expert consultation and a truly empathetic ear. His legal advice was incredibly sound and easy to digest, and very helpful even beyond this situation. Mr. Blanch did not try to force his services on me, and I would most definitely recommend him to others or hire him if needed.

Honest patient knowledgeable man
Had a brief meeting with Mr. Blanch today in regards to a federal case my father is involved in unfortunately and as nervous as I was he was very informative and put me sort of at ease about my fathers situation. Sadly I will not be able to afford him but he definitely is worth the money if you have it. He deserved an excellent review just off of a free consultation with him. If you are looking for a wickedly smart educated and knows what he is talking about not out to get you for your money he is the best recommended lawyer out there. A very kind secretary as well.

Speedy, effective advice in an emergancy!
I received an extremely alarming phone call, threatening immediate arrest and incarceration without remedy, for delinquent taxes about which I had no knowledge. I was referred to Ryan Blanch to clarify my options, and he immediately took action. Sensing a scam, he contacted the original caller and sussed the situation out in a minute, whereupon he assured me there was no cause for alarm --- and charged me nothing!! He is deeply intelligent, professional and humane. Thank You!

The Best of The Best !!
My first time hiring a criminal lawyer...interviewed several....I was sold on Ryan Blanch. My first meeting with Ryan was over two hours...he immediately put me at ease. Ryan is professional and intelligent, but more importantly he is honest and caring. He told me he would handle everything....and he did. He aggressively gathered information and was able to determine that I would not face criminal charges. I am now dealing with a Government Agency regarding my problem. Ryan has provided advice and guidance on how to proceed....and he is only a phone call away. You won't find a better lawyer. The Blanch Law Firm/Ryan Blanch is The Best of The Best !!!

Excellent - simply the best!!!
I had a recent charge for a white collar crime in 2013 and was facing serious penalties. I interviewed 5 different lawyers in Manhattan, but Ryan noticed something about the way I was arrested and charged during the consultation that the other lawyers didn't. I felt most at ease with his knowledge and professionalism, and hired him on the spot. 6 months later he got me a full dismissal!! THANK YOU MR. BLANCH!! You have saved my life and my family's future.

Excellent, excellent, excellent
Amazing law firm with lawyers that really work together well. The head attorney is Mr. Blanch and he always finds great lawyers and staff that work hard to put together evidence and filings that fight the case at every step. A very well run firm where everyone there knows your case and works together to make sure the papers are top notch and that the case and client gets a lot of time and attention. Mr .Blanch is a presence in the courtroom and not afraid to put the prosecutors through their paces in front of the judge. You can't go wrong with this firm.
