Third party custody
I worked with Ryan Wallace for my third-party custody case for my granddaughter. From the moment I met Ryan he was wonderful! Ryan was straight forward with explaining the process and put my fears at ease. Throughout my entire case, I was always able to reach Ryan with questions or concerns. He always was clear and concise. Ryan is caring, compassionate and always kept me informed with everything during my case. I couldn't of obtained permanent custody without Ryan by my side. Ryan is an excellent attorney who is very knowledgeable. If you are in need of a family law attorney, Ryan will not only work extremely hard, but will provide grace and compassion during your case. I would definitely retain Ryan again or refer him to others. They work he did is priceless! Catherine M.

trustworthy and fair
I retained Ryan Wallace to represent me in the divorce process. He was compassionate, fair, and tough when needed. 20 years, of marriage, business ownership, children, and alcoholism all played a part in our divorce process and Ryan helped me navigate it all with compassion, truth, and the clarity I needed to make the best decisions for me and my children. If you are going through a contentious divorce, you want Ryan Wallace on your side.

Divorce is not an easy process. Ryan Wallace helped every step of the way. He understood that even though he does this every day, it was a very new emotional process for me. He was good at explaining what all the options were available at each step. He would give pros and cons through any decisions, but made sure I knew it was my decision. He was quick to respond and I always dealt with him directly, not shuffled through office staff (which everyone in the office was great to deal with too). He was conscious of the cost and did not do anything unnecessarily. If you are faced with this unfortunate situation - I highly recommend Ryan Wallace and Bolt Hoffer Boyd.

Refreshing honesty
From the very first call with Ryan he was up front, clear, direct and left little doubt that he was the right legal representative for me. These days finding a straight shooter that isn’t just in it to drain your wallet but actually works for you and makes sure you are getting what you pay for is rare and that is Ryan.

I initially had a consult with Ryan to discuss a contested parental termination with my ex-husband. From the very first day he was honest and took every step in the best interest of my as his client and my kids. A few years later he assisted my husband and I in a custody case regarding my step daughter who was in a dangerous and unhealthy situation. Again he took every step in the in best interest of us as well as my step daughter. We continue to stay in contact with Ryan to obtain advice on various situations and he is always willing to help. I cannot express how grateful we are for Ryan and his continued dedication and hard work.

Would recommend
We hired Ryan for a marriage related case. The Judge did not initially grant us the result we wanted but Ryan persisted and got the Judge to change her mind. Very happy with the outcome!

We hired Ryan Wallace for a difficult child custody case. We wanted changes to parenting time, among other mindful things. He was up front and honest from day one.(Which is a major reason we hired him.) He put the needs of the child first, was blunt and honest all of the time. We felt our child's needs had been put first before our own, which is what we wanted in a attorney. We recommend Ryan to anyone looking to hire a attorney. He will put the child first, and always tell you what is going on, be open and up front about everything. We defiantly found our long term family attorney.

Child Custody Case from CO to MN
Ryan Wallace really impressed me at our first phone conversation. I hadn't even retained him yet and he gave his undivided time to listen to my situation and ask questions. Then when I met Ryan for a consultation at his office he made me feel truly welcome and considered. I knew he'd go to bat for me. As I asked him questions regarding taking on my case he answered everything honestly and thoroughly. I hired Ryan for my child custody case. Throughout the entire process he was at my side advising me and working hard for both me and my son. Even through adversity with my son's mother who was difficult to deal with, he stayed professional, steady & calm. The final result was more than satisfactory. Ryan got me custody of my son and we were awarded child support for him. Now my son is here safely with me in Minnesota and is in a caring and nurturing place. Ryan is smart, thorough, efficient and gets things done. I would highly recommend Ryan Wallace for any case. Not to mention. even the staff at Bolt Hoffer Boyd was attentive to my calls and needs. Both Ryan & his law firm exceeded my expectations. Thank you Ryan for outstanding work!

Ryan Wallace
I had hired a lawyer previously and was very disappointed. Coming in for the consultation with Ryan I felt I was being listened to. I feel Ryan was very respectful and professional through out my divorce. With my last lawyer I felt I was being judged and told what to do, with no explanation. Ryan explained things every step of the way and gave me great resources. At one point in this process I was done. Just wanted things over, Ryan helped me hang in there and get things done the right way and not just to settle. I can not thank Ryan enough for helping me through this process and having the patience to work with someone else's mess.

Highly Recommended
Hired Mr. Wallace to handle a probate case for my Dad's estate when he died. He handled the case professionally, got me appointed as the executor and I was very pleased with the final result.

Very Professional
I hired Ryan to handle my divorce. He was always responsive to my phone calls and emails and made me feel as comfortable as is possible going through this tough process. He was professional and I was very happy with him as my attorney and would recommend him.

Terrible Attorney!!
I wish I had never met this man! He had my case for over a year while he dragged his feet and just kept billing me. It was truly only about the money for Ryan. Leading up to my trial Ryan Wallace was MIA for weeks! I finally fired him a week before my trial submission deadline, and thank God I did, because I don't think this man was ever even gonna tell me about that critical deadline! He had not even started trial prep and my trial was only 3 weeks out. This man fleeced me and then hung me out to dry! Do not just walk away, Run away from this person who is only cares about billing time.

"I endorse this lawyer. We had a very difficult case to deal with because of high emotions. He protected his client very well so his client suffered minimal embarrassment or trouble from emotional outbursts as the case went along. His detailed knowledge of the law and diplomatic negotiations were excellent and we were able to settle our case. We avoided the cost of a trial in part because of his professionalism and the responsiveness of his office."
