Ryan Hyde is a masterful attorney
Ryan advised a close personal friend of mine on a challenging personal legal situation. His demeanor and professionalism throughout this process was absolutely outstanding. He handled my friend's fears and concerns with true compassion, while maintaining the seriousness and gravitas needed to ensure that she held it together during the trial. I would strongly recommend Ryan to anyone in need of legal assistance!

Mr.
I found the Law firm for Mr. Hyde on the internet. I met with him the next day and slept that night. He calmed me down and showed me light at the end of the tunnel. Ryan is a strong and very respected attorney in Chester County. I was able to get through a bad and stupid mistake with minor damage to myself.

Mr
When we went in to Ryan's office we thought we didnt have a chance at a good outcome. Ryan took the time to listen to what we had to say and then came up with real solutions. He greatly reduced our stress. In court he made sure that we understood what was happening and the outcome ended up being even better than we expected. We would recommend him to anyone facing a criminal charge.

Reccomebded!
Highly recommended! I hired Mr Hyde after being charged with several serious crimes stemming from a road rage incident. He was always quick to answer my questions, kept in constant communication, and fought hard with prosecutors on my behalf. Subsequently ALL charges were dropped and I was offered an acceptable plea deal. A valuable lesson learned: If the police knock on your door, don't speak with them! Politely decline and tell them you can't without legal representation first. Then pick up the phone and find an attorney! Without a doubt, Mr. Hyde's knowledge, expertise, and experience kept me out of jail. He knows the criminal justice system and has established working relationships throughout the system. He's an excellent attorney.

The strength and clarity that I needed
Ryan responded to a weekend call and offered consultation and emergency support during a potential custody crisis. He gave me appropriate guidance and the strength to hold my ground legally with my son's father. He was sensitive to my needs but also candid in his advice. I would whole heartedly recommend him for legal counsel.

An exceptional lawyer!! Truly devoted to his profession & those he serves!!
Mr. Hyde is definitely skilled in his field and truly takes pride in his work. We hired him on 2 parole/probation violations & despite the negative criminal history, prior violations & continued encounters with law enforcement my fiancé was sentenced to time served w parole -initially we were facing almost 2yrs prison time. Mr. Hyde is definitely on top of his game. He is honest and upfront regardless of the situation good or bad. He's very accessible any time or day. Returns all calls, texts & emails almost immediately. We were truly blessed with his services & dedication in handling our matter. Most importantly he did not leave my fiancé or me hanging dry & alone through this scary ordeal. Mr. Hyde cares about his profession & his clients. We will hire him and highly recommend him in the future. Thank you again Mr. Hyde- you are an exceptional lawyer- a true representation of what and how an attorney should be. There should be more like you.

Great Criminal Defense Lawyer
Ryan did a great job at trail defending me from false allegations. The whole process from the start was nerve racking to be accused of something you never did. At trail, Ryan did a fantastic job and going on the offensive to prove these allegations were baseless and had no merit. I was very pleased with the outcome as I was found not guilty of these allegations. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Ryan Hyde could not have been a bigger help for me during my recent DUI case. I met with a few other attorneys before someone miraculously recommended I reach out to Ryan. From our very first meeting I knew he was the right person for the job, and not because he could talk a good game, but rather he exuded a confidence, intelligence and passion for my case from the very beginning. His knowledge and understanding of the law immediately gained my trust and confidence, and it was obvious that he would do everything and anything to put me in the best situation for the best possible outcome. And he absolutely delivered. Ryan was able to fully detail everything that I would experience (and thoroughly explain why it was happening), and provided me with a thorough explanation of all the possible outcomes that I could face. He didn’t sugar coat anything or set any unrealistic expectations, which can be difficult to hear at times, but again Ryan’s confidence, knowledge and passion for his craft completely eased any of those worries – and he was able to continuously instill that confidence in me throughout the entire process. Not only was Ryan informative, but he was also incredibly flexible with his schedule to ensure that any meeting or contact would be most convenient for my schedule. Ryan always made sure to be available if any questions or concerns arose, and made it his job to keep me informed as every step of the process rolled out. I was facing a significant punishment in which the attorneys I spoke to before Ryan did not even attempt to present a scenario where I would not avoid the harshest penalty. But low and behold Ryan was able to get that best possible outcome, and I’m not surprised one bit. It was a long and arduous process, but having Ryan in my corner was the only thing that got me through it.

very helpful
Answered my questions about my drug charges. I've asked an attorney the same questions that this man answered and he wasn't giving me answers. Very helpful. Thank you

Incompetent
Ryan made a lot of promises to me that he could not deliver. For example, he said the case will be wrapped up in 3 months. It didn’t. It took 9 months and with loose ends. He promised he’d call me the next day. He didn’t. Not the next day or the next. He promised to send me a document. He didn’t. I’d ask again. Again he promised to send it. He didn’t. It’s a repeat pattern throughout the case. I found him to be negligent with the case, even incompetent.

Response from Ryan Hyde April 23, 2020
I am very sorry to hear you feel this way, while I dont know what client this is, I hope that you have contacted me directly already or will in the near future. If you are my client you have my cell phone number so please reach out. Obviously, I cant control the speed with which a case is handled as I am just one part of the legal system, but I am sorry that you feel I didnt agressively represent you. If there are loose ends please let me know as I am unaware of any cases in this status that have not been delayed because of COVID 19.

Do not hire!!!!!!
PLEASE save your money and do not hire this guy!!! His web site is great, he speaks great, he makes you feel at ease with your decision to hire him but let me assure you,ITS SMOKE AND MIRRORS! He is absolutely unprofessional and could not keep his composure with me in the heat of the moment on my preliminary hearing, I was completely blind sided by this attorneys behavior and left confused and wondering who this guy was because he was not the guy i hired. As I move forward with my case I am glad to have not retained mr.hyde because I believe when you make a mistake in life you put your trust in someone who you think has the your best interest at hand and will give you the professionalism that is deserved and will support you through the ugly legal process. At the end of the day this is not who I would recommend and I hope this was helpful to someone when they are in a rough spot in there life and are getting ready to make a decision on how to move forward to correct a wrong.

Response from Ryan Hyde October 21, 2017
Brian, I certainly understand your position and again apologize for the way you felt that morning. I know you felt rushed and a bit under attack and that wasnt fair, but given the delays of the morning, we had serious time constraints. It doesnt make our interraction justfiable or satisfactory, and for that I again apologize. I will say that I had talked to the DA again before you terminated my representation, and the strategy we had agreed upon was well on its way to providing the favorable outcome we had discussed. I have discussed this case with your new counsel and sincerely wish you and your family the best. If you care to discuss ways I can improve you know I am always willing to take your call. RLH
