I am a medical doctor who suffered a severe injustice for which I had no recourse (i.e. no physical proof beyond he said/she said). Years later, I was accused of a low-level non-violent crime that I (may have) committed in retaliation; but my actions were justified in my ethical code, given the egregiousness of the trespass against me and my family. However, I knew the law wouldn't see it that way. When the Hennepin County police contacted HR at my new employer in Seattle, I already knew two things: 1. Don't EVER talk to the police and 2. Get legal help ASAP (like that very hour).
I paid an hourly rate to a nice but not aggressive MN lawyer to talk with the cops, who was able to tell me the evidence the detectives had, but dropped me right there. He left me to suffer the daily tension headaches and sweaty apprehension of not knowing whether or not I was going to get charges. Gross misdemeanor charges mean I am immediately fired from a high end job, according to the contract with my employer. After two weeks of not knowing if I would be charged, I was going crazy, drinking and shutting down mentally, considering purchasing a firearm. No way was I going to last the full year that police and district attorney generally spend deciding if they have enough to file charges.
At that point, I called Ryan Garry. I had done my internet research and reviewed his numerous helpful YouTube law tutorials. He heard my case with compassion. He will interview you from all angles, of course determining the facts of the case, discussing hostile and friendly witnesses, discussing the evidence; but he also dives into the secondary problems our "speedy" trial system can create. He asks about home life and mental health, and it is the holistic approach I think that sets him apart from other lawyers. Regardless of the guilt or not, a defendant needs to be as mentally healthy as other "not guilty" defendants, should they ever need to appear in court. He put me at ease, telling me right away that my crime would not be punishable by any jail time. He is quickly responsive, even on his court days. Due to my draconian contract, he knew that preventing charges was top priority.
Thankfully, he knew the particular law enforcement officers involved in my case, and he made contact. By pointing out weaknesses in their evidence, he was able to persuade the police to close my file and not send my case to the D.A. in the first place! Ryan Garry JD is worth every penny! Maybe the law lost last week, but common sense justice won, and I believe Ryan understands the difference.
If you don't believe me, YouTube Ryan Garry and watch 20 or so short (

I contacted Ryan on a Friday as I was boarding a plane and he called me right away. My spouse has a extremely serious case and Ryan answered all of my questions, gave great advice and made himself available at all times. There was never any pressure for retainer, just kindness and a willingness to help. I would recommend him to anyone needing a great lawyer.

One hour after sending an email I received a personal phone call from MR. Garry at 10:00pm. From the moment I described my situation he assured me I had a winning case. He did exactly what he said he would do, and in the exact time frame he said he would do it in. All my emails were answered within hours of sending them. As part of his team, Shelly and Elizabeth were equally wonderful to work with on the particulars of the case. MR. Garry will get you the most favorable outcome that can be had in any given situation. You will not regret hiring him and you will never need or want another attorney. He truly is world class.

Total loser cop tried to ruin my life for refusing to blow. Garry exposed the cop for who he was and case was aquitted. Garry is hands down the closest thing to Harvey Spectre we have in Minnesota.

Ryan and his team were incredibly professional, and understood my situation thoroughly. His reputation preceded him, and the prosecutor granted a continuation for dismissal in my case. The prosecutor knew full well that he could not win against Ryan, and also knew that he would take it all the way to a jury trial. Further, there is not even a record of being in court, as the prosecutor granted a private filing with the judge. A lesser attorney would have advised a plea. Not Ryan.

A big thank you to both Ryan and Elizabeth! They both did wonderful job of setting expectations, managing my case and executing from start-to-finish. I now have a clear record and nothing to hold me back. They are top-notch and really do care about their clients.

The title sums up my experience with Ryan Garry. Not only is he caring and humane, but he understands the law like no one else. He exhibits total dedication and tenacity, and he exhausts every possible avenue to provide the best advice and service for his clients. Ryan also understands the "system" better than most, and his wide network of connections help him navigate difficult cases creatively, passionately and effectively. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone, anytime, for any legal matter.

Ryan is an excellent lawyer! He has extremely strong self confidence and influence over others at the court. He is a very strong and effective lawyer when negotiating with the prosecutor and communicating with the judge. He has sincere attitude towards his clients and always tries his best to help them in a very professional way.
More importantly, he is always willing to go another EXTRA mile to help his clients even AFTER the law suites are closed. You can feel respected, heard, and helped when working with Ryan. From his other successful cases, you can see that you are in VERY good hands when he represents you.
I have interviewed at least 10 Super Lawyers/Rising Stars before I met Ryan. But he is definitely a super lawyer among all the super lawyers I have interviewed. I fully recommend Ryan for any criminal related legal issues!

Ryan was hired to defend a foreign student who was charged with First Degree Burglary, First Degree Assault-Liability for Crimes of Another, Third Degree Assault-Liability for Crimes of Another and First Degree Burglary-Liability for Crimes of Another. Ryan took over this case from another Attorney who I had hired, and had to dismiss due to his poor handling of the case. Ryan work very diligently on this case and kept us informed about the case at all times. We always knew what was going on. At trial, no one could have predicted the obstruction Ryan faced to simply represent his client in court, and play by the rules of the criminal justice system. This case was not an easy one and many lawyers in Ryan's position would not have been able to achieve the outcome that he did. Three of the most serious charges were found by a jury to be not guilty and the least serious charge was a guilty verdict. The plea offer from the prosecutor was to plead guilty to burglary assault and spend 72 months in prison. Ryan did not accept this offer. This case involved three other defendants, one pleaded guilty to burglary assault and offered to testify for the government. The two other defendants are currently in prison. These were just a few college students who had too much to drink and got into a fight. The aggressor in this case was the victim of an injury. The state main witness lied at trial. People like Ryan makes the criminal justice system work. Ryan's method of defending his clients are honorable and he has good work ethics. It was two long days of trial, after the jury verdicts, everyone in court praised Ryan for a job well done even though we did not get four not guilty verdicts. Ryan made a difference in his client's life and that is something we will never forget. I will recommend Ryan Garry to anyone who needs an attorney.
