You need an attorney who will listen to you, understand your needs, and explain your options.  I am Ryan Wilson, and I am focused on helping my clients and developing effective legal strategies that meet each client's individual needs.  I welcome new clients in my areas of practice, and my firm offers a free inital consultation.  I am here to help whether you are starting or running a business or nonprofit, planning your estate, administering an estate, or caring for an elderly loved one. 

I provide my estate planning clients with comprehensive service, including the preparation of relevant documents such as wills or, where appropriate, trusts, strategies to reduce or eliminate tax liability, and business succession. Standard packages include a will, financial power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and medical directive. I help my probate clients navigate the complicated process of administering an estate.  I help clients with older loved ones who need additional care because of illness or dementia.  I help business clients choose the right business entity for them, negotiate and draft agreements, and help business owners protect their brand.

A Great Lawyer!
I hired Ryan to write the contract for selling my business and my estate planning documents. The transactions went smoothly, and I felt like I completely understood my case.

He did a great job and completely explained all aspects of my will. I would recommend him for any will or probate needed.

A GREAT Lawyer to Work With!
I hired Ryan to transfer the home deed from my deceased Mother's name to mine (and other family members). Ryan was extremely professional and did all of the work for me (without me having to provide a lot of guidance). He is a licensed Notary (so, I did not have to find another one) and, again, made the process of getting the deed transferred easier than I could have imagined. I would definitely recommend Ryan for his professionalism, knowledge of estate transfers, and his ability to get the job done (without much involvement from me)!

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Ryan is one of the finest attorneys I know. Tremendous work ethic, impeccable attention to detail, and vast knowledge of the law. I recommend him to all my family and friends for estate planning matters. Ryan has a rare ability to explain complex legal terms into everyday language. He is also personable and always has a good story to tell. His zeal and dedication to clients is also unmatched by few. I often see him on his way out the door to visit clients at their homes, nursing homes, and hospitals to ensure that their estates are in order. Ryan also handles a number of pro bono cases in the community and provides tremendous service to the bar and legal profession. Ryan's fees are also reasonable for our area. All in all, Ryan is a lawyer's lawyer."
