Easy to work with!
Ryan was great, he really did a great job of making me feel comfortable. I had always heard from others that working with lawyers was intimidating. I did not find that to be the case at all! Ryan never once made me feel silly about asking questions. He would take time to explain things to me in a way I could easily understand. I would definitely recommend Ryan and his firm to others!

Overall great experience!
Mr. Kuchmaner is our primary attorney and has handled a wide range of things for us. He helped us negotiate some tough contracts in our commercial real estate business. In one project he helped us negotiate a purchase contract where environmental clean up was required. In another he went in front of city hall and successfully got them to vote to rezone our property. He has done numerous other projects for us in different areas of business. He has always been fast and reliable - and he really does top quality work. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

From the very beginning, Ryan was informative on how to achieve my wishes for my estate, which were complicated. He always kept my best interests first and foremost. He was very concerned, very efficient and very pleasant. It was a great experience!
