This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Went the extra mile
Ryan (and his partner Tom Koester) actually came to my home and met with me after a very difficult car accident. Ryan got a great result, but also made the process so much easier.

My Case was Complicated, and Mr. Bradley Made it Easy for Me
I had a complicated insurance case. This was the type of matter that would have never been resolved without an attorney. Ryan broke it all down and kept me in the loop. The result was very favorable, and Ryan took the case on a contingent basis so I paid no money upfront. He was direct, and was goal oriented about monetary compensation and beyond. He is backed by a strong staff and handled my case as well as I could hope.

Honest & Smart!
Although I didn't hire Ryan (turned out my case required a different kind of attorney), but I did have a consult with him which was very empowering. I credit Ryan in part for my winning my lawsuit because he pointed me in the right direction, educated me on Illinois laws in the area of contract labor, and gave me confidence in my case (and the savvy to pick the right lawyer in the end). But the most memorable thing about Ryan (apart from his good looks :-)): was simply his being a good human being and treating me like one. He didn't ask me for anything, and he gave me so much. I wish him all the success in the world.

Ryan Cares About his Clients at a Personal Level...And gets Results
I had a very routine personal injury case and Ryan immediately took control. He arranged my healthcare, helped me recover, and of course achieved a solid settlement. He still follows up and this was all over a year ago.

Ryan Bradley-Trial Attorney
I am involved in a dispute with a business associate which is now in litigation. I have found Mr. Bradley to be both professional in his efforts to negoitiate a settlement and technically competent with regard to discovery and litigation. I would highly recommend him to someone who needs a good litigation attorney.

Very good attorney!
Ryan listened to my concerns, he analyzed my legal issues with sophistication and knowledge. We discussed various alternatives, and, most importantly, I got a great outcome AND he kept me up-to-date throughout the entire process.
