Super Wonderful!
What a wonderful experience with Ryan! He is such a great conversationalist and personable. During the consultation, he told me EXACTLY what was going to happen. He was able to get my traffic violation reduced to improper equipment. So grateful for him.

Great experience!
I had a great experience with Ryan! I had a ticket for an improper lane change and there was a collision between my car and another car. He was able to get it completely dismissed early before my court date and I no longer had to pay any court fees/fines just like I was hoping. My case is now closed. He was very quick to communicate with me and was patient with me when I wanted to keep asking for new updates and very kind. I highly recommend him!

FANTASTIC LAWYER!
Attorney Ryan Watson is absolutely amazing! I was recommended by an Auto accident lawyer and I am so glad. I called to consult with him about my license suspension issue and just a few minutes while on the call I felt so comfortable and continued on how I can make the payment to him to proceed with my case. He's price is very effecient, he very courteous and caring to the point he's helped me even when I had questions relating to something else, and communicates with you immediately when you have a question. He had my case dismissed and closed without having any license points or court fees. Ryan Watson is the only attorney my family or I will ever hire.

Smart and knowledgeable
I received a citation a few months ago that required a court appearance. Within a week I received at least 20 letters from attorneys wanting to represent me. The first letter I received was from Mr. Watson and it caught my attention as it was very well written. After speaking with him on the phone for 15 or 20 minutes I knew that he was the person I wanted to represent me. I never contacted any one else and I’m glad li did. He did exactly as he said and was able to get my case dismissed without having to make a court appearance. If you are looking for an honest lawyer to represent, look no further than Ryan. Thank you again!

Excellent work & communication
Ryan and team took my calls in the evening, after work, when I was available. He was friendly, and clear in his communication. He got my traffic case dismissed and sent me the good news promptly. Best part is he has many ways to communicate, including text - my favorite!

Amazing Lawyer
Ryan helped me out with a traffic violation case; going 91 mph in a 70 mph zone. He worked hard and helped to reduce my charges to an Improper Equipment charge so I received 0 points on my license and 0 points on my insurance. In addition, he brought my court costs down from $263 to only $50! Overall, Ryan is an amazing lawyer who knows what he is doing and his fees are reasonable at around $100. I highly recommend him if you ever find yourself in a similar situation. I hope to not ever get another speeding violation but in the event that it occurs again, I will definitely be going back to him.

Ryan was a pleasure to work with through my DWI
Ryan was a fantastic lawyer during my DWI process! He kept me informed on all the details as they came about and went above and beyond to ensure I came out with the best outcome possible. I have absolutely learned my lesson and will never make this mistake again. For anyone going through something similar though, I would HIGHLY recommend Ryan. He made an unfortunate event way less stressful then it already was.

Excellent Job!!
A month ago I got a speeding ticket for driving 91 MPH in a 70 MPH zone. I soon got a letter from Ryan to be my attorney for a low price of 85$. I was originally charged with a traffic violation but Ryan reduced my case down to an improper equipment. He also got my $263 ticket reduced down to 100$ and I have no points on my drivers license! This attorney was a blessing and I 10/10 would recommend hiring him. Thank you so much Ryan!!

Great outcome and service
Mr. Watson and his staff did a fantastic job with my son's case (speeding ticket). Mr. Watson returned my initial call quickly and was very nice over the phone - explaining what he could do regarding my son's case and the possible outcomes. His staff was extremely polite and also quick to respond whenever I had a question. They made a difficult situation less stressful and we couldn't have asked for a more favorable outcome. We would recommend Mr. Watson and his team without hesitation.

Excellent
The office of Ryan Watson assisted me with a speeding ticket in Mecklenburg County. Communication was prompt and everything was taken care of efficiently. The cost and fees were very satisfactory. I hope to never receive another ticket, but if I do I plan on using Ryan Watson again for sure.
