About Ryan

Learn Ryan’s areas of practice.

Hello, I am Attorney Ryan M. Schur and I take pride in providing my clients with personal attention and the legal representation it takes to give them the best possible outcome. I am dedicated towards working hard and presistent in fighting for their defense.
 
As a lifelong resident of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, I spent many years training at the area courts. I served as a law clerk with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office where I learned the inside workings of the criminal court system. Prior to law school, I worked with respected area attorneys who instilled their wisdom and experience in me. As a college athlete, I learned the value of persistence and preparation in overcoming hurdles. These are the values I bring to fight for you.

My Counselor
Mr. Schur put me at ease in our first conversation. He explained everything in plain language, best/worst case scenario's. Mr. Schur let me know exactly what to do and what to expect. He made me feel completely comfortable in what can be a trying ordeal. A great attorney and a better man.

We were very pleased with this law firm. Ryan provided detailed explanations and great communication throughout the process. Not only was he competent and very professional, he was sympathetic at the same time to our case which is a great comfort when wondering if you are in the right hands. Any questions or concerns we had were responded to very promptly. I would highly recommend Ryan.

Above and Beyond
Ryan represented my son on a serious speeding ticket. He was very friendly and helpful from the start, explaining all the potential outcomes along with the likelihood of each, and worked his hardest to achieve the best possible result. He was able to get the case dismissed, and was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the process. He went above and beyond what was expected and provided the highest quality of service possible. I highly recommend Attorney Schur to anyone looking for a lawyer, and will keep his contact for future incidents.

Ryan M Schur
He is the best find and a light in the dark when i was in trouble. Ryan was pretty impressive from the Day 1 we meet. He understood my problem very clearly and jolted down the steps to attack the problem. He was pretty reasonable on the fees and was an open book. He also walked me through the entire court process and supported in times of need. His merits are his aggressive approach and optimistic approach towards the case he took. He also went an extra mile to help me not only win my case but made sure all my records are being expunged. Although i travelled back to my home country he was so courteous to send the case summary. He is knowledge and credibility on the case that he deals is bind blowing. In Short - Any Legal issues just do not think any further he is the go to person.

Metra Ticket(s)
My wife and I were able to engage the services of Ryan's practice to address a frivolous citations. Ryan communicated with both my wife and I regarding the citations, the process of appearing and contesting them and overall the entire process in a simple plain spoken way. Ryan was extremely communicative leading up to the court dates and, in particular, the day of the hearings. Overall, he provided great counsel/advice and was open to suggestions regarding the circumstances of our situation. He did not over promise anything but certainly preformed at the high level we had hoped for in servicing our cases. I will happily refer him to others for all of the reasons listed above.

Speeding ticket representation
Ryan very successfully represented me on a misdemeanor b speeding ticket. In the initial consult he spent the time answering all my questions and concerns. He was extremely responsive and easy to quickly communicate with. Being someone that leads a busy, hectic life - Ryan made this process beyond efficient and easy for me. Finally, and maybe most importantly, Ryan was able to get me a very favorable result.

Professional and Personable
Six months ago, after a friend's wedding, I found myself in a scary, difficult situation. DUI and a trip the police station. One call to Ryan Schur (after midnight) and he was there, he calmed my fears and personally drove me home to my family. He took immediate action, all while informing me of possible outcomes and answering the hundreds of questions I had. He is an extremely knowledgeable and respectful attorney. The entire time I was able to drive thanks to his petition for a permit and tomorrow my license will be reinstated. He made the entire process easier, I don't know what I would've done without him.

Incredibly brilliant and capable
I was distraught and far from home while experiencing what felt like a tragedy, an accident a ticket and a court date. Ryan was quick to put me at ease while alerting me to possible outcomes. He was always professional and quick to respond if I had questions even at the long distance in which my defense took place about 1200 miles. I was relieved to know that he had my back. While I was praying for what I thought to be implausible or just short of a miracle. Ryan was busy making it happen, a complete dismissal of any charge against me. Thank-you Ryan for all your hard work and dedication. I would sincerely recommend attorney Schur to anyone.

Best Attorney
I've had the pleasure of knowing Ryan for a long time. I remember when he told me he was pursuing to be a lawyer. I admired his work ethic because I got a first hand look to see his person to person interaction and I was sold. He always put the clients needs 1st. When I saw those characteristics I knew he would take those same qualities to his practice. Ryan is a great resource but most importantly a phenomenal person.
