Ryan is a consummate professional who knows his craft and understands how to navigate the legal system with skill and expertise. Ryan went out of his way to keep me informed and up to date on the status of my case and options. Ryan settled my issue with very favorable results.
If you are looking for a compassionate professional who delivers results and truly cares about you as a person Ryan is your man.
If I every need an Attorney in the future Ryan is my choice.

I called several lawyers before calling Ryan for the first time and each time they did not spend more than 2 minutes on the line with me. Ryan went over in detail all the possibilities with me the first time I spoke with him. He was early for court each time we went and always clear cut on what I was facing. He got my charges dropped down to a much better deal than I was looking for. I'm so thankful for all the work he put into my case and the outcome!

Ryan Hanzelik is not only a nice guy who is easy to talk to- he actually gets the job done! He doesn't talk down to you but treats you with respect. The thing I really appreciated about this attorney was that he genuinely seemed concerned about what I and my family were going through and truly did everything he could to help us. He was always honest with us regarding the possibilities but also kept a positive attitude. In the end the criminal charge that was threatening to wreck my life was DISMISSED!

I endorse Ryan Hanzelik as an outstanding lawyer. Ryan practices criminal and family law from his office in East Ridge, TN. Ryan regularly appears before courts in and around Chattanooga. He is well respected by his fellow attorneys and is a strong advocate on behalf of his clients. Judges know and trust Ryan's judgment.

I endorse this lawyer. I have been in opposition to Mr. Hanzelik on various occasions and have found him to aggressively prosecute and defend his cases. I have found Mr. Hanzelik to be extremely thorough in conducting discovery and presenting his legal and factual defenses to the Court. Every non-frivolous issue which could be raised was raised, and was presented in an effective manner. Despite his aggressive practice, Mr. Hanzelik has always conducted himself as a gentleman and consummate professional. In my experience Mr. Hanzelik is both an effective advocate and a pleasure to work with under circumstances in which the parties often harbor significant animosity.
