I worked for and with Attorneys for over 20 years. When I first met Ryan I was very impressed by his demeanor. He was very down to earth and we talked some just to break the ice. I immediacy felt at ease with him. I immediately noticed that he was interested in us personally and didn’t look at us as just another client to make money off of quickly. He was very accurate in his advise and concerns and he counseled both my husband and myself with what to do, what not to do, how to handle getting accurate information and to not leave out any important information. We hired Ryan for a Chapter 13. Ryan went out of his way to help us on every situation that came up and kept in touch with us as you would expect him to. He was not just our attorney but a friend by the time this was over. We found out that during this time my husband had Alzheimer’s and two other diseases. Ryan stood by us through this rough time. He is unbelievably intelligent and knows his law thoroughly!!! I want to highly recommend him as a very ethical, intelligent and caring attorney. We felt at ease with Ryan and trust implicitly.

Ryan was amazing! When I first met with Ryan I was SO nervous! He was able to calm my nerves within the first 15 minutes. At the end of our first meeting, I knew I was doing the right thing and felt comfortable with my decision. Through the whole process he was always available with any questions I had. When having to go to Court, he was with me every step of the way. Ryan is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I highly recommend Ryan!!

Professional and Thorough
Mr. Knipp took the time needed to familiarize himself with my specific problems and was able to make recommendations that would be to my benefit, not just a cookie-cutter approach. He kept me informed all the way through the entire process and was always available to answer any questions or concerns that arose. He kept his appointments promptly and his charges were very reasonable given the time and concern shown be Mr. Knipp and his staff. I would certainly recommend him for someone contemplating filing for bankruptcy. I think he will give you professional, honest advice in a timely and reasonably priced manner.

Ryan was great to work with from the very start. The initial consultation was low stress and he clearly answered all of my questions. Throughout the bankruptcy process he always took my calls and when he wasn’t available he promptly returned them. Part of his service includes a check of your credit rating coming out of bankruptcy. He just did this today and was timely and thorough with his information. He’s a very easy person to work with.

I had a very complicated case involving garnishment from a very aggressive collection agency and their lawyer. He was able to navigate all the paperwork and help me understand my rights. He did this all for free! I would highly recommend him. If I actually needed to hire an attorney it would be him.

Ryan is amazing. He made the entire process easy. Even after it was all done he continued to make sure my credit was being reported correctly. This service they offer is worth using if your being unfairly reported.

Great Experience!!
I was very nervous about filling bankruptcy and of course had no knowledge of how it all worked. Ryan made me not only feel comfortable but he was always there when I had any question's or concerns. When we went to court he was very prepared. I would most definitely use him and always would recommend him to anyone in need of a laywer.
