Excellent Lawyer, Highly Reccomend
I worked with Ryan on a personal injury case after getting in a car accident and was 100% satisfied. Ryan was incredibly thorough, investigating all components of the case including recently changed local laws that were pertinent to the case, as well as exploring multiple long shot strategies for recovering as much in damages as possible. Though my case was not worth a huge amount of money, I felt that Ryan dedicated a significant amount of time and attention to it and treated mine as well as he might have another case worth many times more. Most importantly, Ryan is upstanding and operates in a highly ethical and moral manner. As a complete novice to the legal system, I always felt confident that he would ultimately work in my interest and defer to my needs, even if it might result in him getting paid less. In discussing fees and why I should work with him, he was very transparent and I felt that he was giving me the full picture of his work and explaining his value without trying to sell me on something or take advantage of my ignorance about the process. We reached a conclusion that I feel very happy with and though the case has closed, I know he would also be fully willing to help should anything related arise in the future. Working with Ryan gave me full confidence and peace of mind during a stressful time. He is efficient, ethical, transparent, thorough, a good communicator, as well as personable and easy to get along with. I always felt like he was my advocate and had my best interests at heart, had confidence in the qualify of his work, and I highly recommend his legal services.
