Real Estate Deed Change
I consulted with Ryan Pry about getting a name change for our (us and our daughter and son-in-laws) property in Roanoke County. Ryan was very helpful in explaining the process and willing to get that done for us. He responded quickly in an efficient and considerate manner. He went above and beyond by meeting with us to sign necessary papers at our daughter’s home for our convenience. We are very grateful to Ryan and hope to have him do other legal matters in the future.

Estate Planning
We needed standard estate documents (POA/Will/Medical Directive) on short notice for our mother, and I reached out to Ryan Pry on a friend's recommendation. Mr. Ryan responded very promptly and was professional and compassionate with every request. We would hire him again, and we will recommend him to others.

Excellent to deal with
Ryan Pry was personally attentive to our wishes in updating the will and setting up a trust, so I am confident that things will be distributed the way we had wanted. I had ample opportunity to review the documents and make changes, and to ask questions, and I had many questions, because my husband passed away shortly after we began the process of updating the wills. I greatly appreciate his patience during a very difficult time.

Setup of LLC
I called Ryan to set up an LLC for me. He took care of it very quickly and answered all of my questions very fast. There was a small error in my documents and he took care of that even faster. Great attorney and I plan to use him again for my estate and any other business items.
Response from Ryan Pry November 6, 2020
Thank you, and best wishes for success with your new business! I also appreciate your patience while we fixed that minor error in the documents.

Will, Real Estate LLC and SCC filings for our corporation.
In 2013 Ryan prepared a Will and later in the same year a real estate LLC. In 2019 Ryan was invaluable helping us with a small business filing with State of Virginia. I have recommended Ryan to friends and would not hesitate to call on him again. Ryan’s para legal is pleasant and professional.

Mr.
Mr. Pry was contacted due to the necessity of having someone from the legal community represent the interests of my wife and I in the sale of our home. When I first contacted Mr. Pry he was genuinely interested in representing us on short notice and went to work immediately on our behalf. There were multiple snags and problems associated with the sale of our home but Mr. Pry stayed on top of each problem every step of the way keeping us informed at every turn. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Pry and his para-legal, Patsy Morris with whom I spoke on multiple occasions. I highly recommend Ryan Pry for all legal advice and representation in his area of expertise. I have no reservation whatsoever in utilizing his services again should the need arise.

Trust Preparation
Ryan did an outstanding job in preparing my Trust/Will. He was very professional and always willing to communicate with me regarding my concerns. In the final draft he added addendums that covered all of my possible needs. Ryan was fantastic to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a Will or a Trust.

Real Estate Assistance: HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Ryan did an excellent job of helping me to compose a letter to a Nursery that was wanting to harvest trees that were still on the property that I had bought. He helped me to word this letter in a way that was professional and legally sound. He responded to me quickly and we had the letter ready to send by the next day. He asked questions to make sure that he fully knew the situation and made sure that I was involved in the process. I would *highly* recommend Ryan Pry for legal assistance!

Horrible. Don't waste your time or money.
If I could give this attorney negative stars, I would. He was hired to settle an estate for our family over a year ago. He promised that it would be finalized and checks distributed at the end of June 2020. Never heard from him. I contacted his office in July only to be told that he had left to start his own practice and they had no idea what the status of any cases were. I called his new number and only got voicemail. I left numerous messages and he finally returned a call stating the estate would be settled in August. Guess what? Nope. I've had to call every couple of weeks to find out what's going on. He then promised it would be settled the first week of October. Guess what? Nope. He still refuses to return phone calls and apparently doesn't bother to update his secretary with the status so that she can call us. In 12 weeks, it will be 2 years since this process started. If you want someone to competently assist with your estate planning, PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE. You will be busy assuredly disappointed by Mr. Pry's horribly unprofessional excuse for an estate lawyer.

Response from Ryan Pry November 3, 2020
I'm sorry that you are dissatisfied. However, as I have said before, I am only able to share limited information with someone who is a beneficiary of an estate, and not my client.
