Credit card collections
I was served papers a few months ago on an old credif card that went to collections. I found Randall online in a quick search online and sent a request for a quote. He got back to me immediately. He handled everything quickly and made sure I understood everything surrounding the case. The experience was 100% stress free knowing I had him in my corner. He even worked during his vacation! I am extremely pleased with the outcome and quick responses. I hope to never have to hire Randall again, but would not hesitate to if needed. I will be recommending him to anyone that needs a consumer debt lawyer.

Defaulted Student Loan
The day my doorbell rang and I was being served papers stating I was being sued by a law firm representing and old school loan I had forgotten. I thought there was no way this was going to end good, I was a nervous wreck! Being recommended to Randall was the best recommendation! From the day I met him he was very understanding not judgmental on the situation, he was very personable and friendly and even though I had no idea how this would turn out he put me at ease. This at times was a very emotional scary process, but every time I felt this way he went out of his way to call me and make me feel at ease. He took every step possible to make sure everything about my case was legit as in our day in age there are alot of scams out there. He helped me understand my rights, my options and ultimately in the end he helped me receive the best deal I could have gotten. We settled this before it went any further than being served those papers, no court and no judgement. He is very honest and very responsive, he was on vacation and still went out of his way to take care of my case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him he is amazing in every way! And hopefully I never have to go through this again, but if I did he would be my number 1 pick.

Car Loan Issue
I would like to say Mr Randall Ryder was extremely helpful for me through a judgement I encountered through a car loan I had with an ex girlfriend. Me being so new to the process he made me comfortable and helped put some of my worries at ease through the process. He always answered my emails or phone call when I had questions and helped me get my finances back on track by alleviating the headache of a judgement. He found loopholes in the judgment that put resolution in my favor so I was very happy with the outcome. I would recommend him for civil\debt issues your encountering because he's a well experince versatile attorney I enjoyed working with.

Optimal Scenario
I was sued two years ago by a well known predatory debt collector. I contacted and hired Randall to represent me. I feel he provided me the best possible resolution to my matter, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Additionally, Randall has been receptive and responsive to any questions or concerns that I have had since that time. I would highly recommend him. I believe he was the best representative I could have had to help me resolve my legal issue.

Trustworthy Consimer Rights Attorney
I was more than terrified when I was contacted by a debt collection agency over a debt that I thought had been long resolved. Randall contacted me through a questioniare I filled out. I could not have been more fortunate to have met Randall. He put me at complete ease, I had the upmost confidence in his abilities. He took the time to explain the debt collection and court processes. Randall always responded very promptly to emails and phone calls. He also took time to get to know me and asked questions about my family, which made me feel he truly cares. That's rare in today's society. Randall was able to achieve a good outcome for my case before we ever had to step foot in a court room. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a consumer rights attorney, he truly stands tall for consumer rights.

Trustworthy, Knowledgable Attorney
I worked with Randall on student loan debt that defaulted several years ago without my knowledge. I was referred to him by a trusted source and was not disappointed. Dealing with collections agencies on unpaid debts is a very scary and emotional process. Randall helped me to understand my rights and gave me the knowledge that allowed me to be unafraid of speaking with those who were calling about my "debt". He was helpful, nonjudgmental and always responded quickly and thoroughly. He was able to file two cases on my behalf. I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs consultation or legal representation against debt collectors.

Very helpful, highly recommend
Randall helped us tremendously to get through a horrible medical collections case. We were wrongfully sent to collections based on medical billing mistakes in another state. Randall spent hours on the phone with us, giving us advice on how to handle what was going on. We couldn't have gotten through it without him. We would highly recommend him for any debt collection scenario. Thank for for everything you did for us Randall.

The Superman of Consumer Rights
I was having an issue with collections company concerning the FDCPA and they didn't want to work with me. I called on Randall to help. I met a man who truly stands for consumer rights. A man that, I believe, to be in this to attempt to change, and if not, at least hold accountable those that take advantage of consumers. He listened to the challenges, took the case, and went after the company. While they tried to dodge; they tried to maneuver, Randall was always ready for the next step. In the end, we came to a resolution that all was satisfied with. I hope to never need Randall's service again, but if I ever have the need for a consumer's rights attorney, I know where my first call will be.

Excellent Consumer Law Attorney
Mr. Ryder was fantastic in helping us out with a credit card debt lawsuit. He was communicative, knew the law, and helped obtain a positive outcome in our case. Hopefully, we'll never need a lawyer again, but if we did and it was for a consumer law case, we'd be begging Mr. Ryder for his help again.

My school loan debt was cut in half!...REALLY!
When the largest bank and privet school loan financial institution doubled my payments from $200 to over $450 per month...I was in a world of hurt! I had no way to pay!...there are so many of us struggling with this tremendous burden.....I spent 3 years trying to solve this problem on my own. The collection agencies demanding payment in full...the threat of law suits...and finally?, a court date... a "default hearing" that I could not win on my own...the odds were not in my favor. I was being sued for tens of thousands of $ for my school loans plus interest and attorneys fees.....this is serious! The Ryder Law Firm is known nationally and I can thank my father for finding Randall on the internet from Denver! I had only 30 days left until the "pay my debt in full" court date!.... From my very first phone call to the "Ryder Law firm".... "I knew I made the right choice" Randall was so "easy" to talk to...he put my mind at ease...he knew exactly what to do!... and for the first time in weeks I started to sleep better....WOW!...I found someone who really wanted to help me!....There was a "positive" light to my tunnel of problems. CONCLUSTION; Within days my court date was dropped and I was no longer being sued!...My school loan debt was cut in half!...I was saved from paying thousands $$$ more! The Ryder law firm didn't stop there, ...Randall made sure that all my school loan "bad debt" was erased from my current credit score...I'm back in the 700's again!!! I can't thank you eniough Randall.........

Best call I ever made!
I was targeted by a large financial company that I had never heard of. They claimed I had open an account with them over 8 years ago and owed over $17,000.00 in debt to them. I was so intimidated by the representative of the firm for the company. She had me thinking maybe some how I had done this and I had no way to prove I didn't so I would have to pay. However after asking for proof that I had done this, she would not provide any but still a judgment was brought against me. I am a disable person on a very limited income and they took money from me they should not have. After taking to another lawyer who is a family friend he referred me to Mr. Ryder. I spoke to him and was immediately comforted by his complete knowledge and professionalism. I had my money back in just a few days and with in a few weeks the entire matter was dropped and I never have to worry about them coming back after me again. I can not put into words how much Mr. Ryder did to protect me the "little guy". I cant imagine what would have happened to me if I hadn't found someone so dedicated to caring for everyone not just the big companies with all the money but the people the prey on. Thank Randall I will always recommend you to anyone needing advice on consumer issues.

Honest, Straight-Forward Consumer Attorney
Mr. Ryder is a great attorney. He not only gets things done, and takes care of his clients, he is personable and friendly. He is very down-to-earth, and straight-forward. Those are attributes not normally associated with good attorneys, but Mr. Ryder exemplifies them. I would recommend Randall Ryder to anyone in need of a good consumer law attorney.
