Great Criminal Defense attorney
Ryan Kreck was great and assisted us through the entire uncomfortable process. He kept us informed and pushed for a conclusion during long delays due to COVID and other mitigating manners. We always felt he was on our side and would do his best for us.

Great, Proactive, patient!
Ryan treated me with kindness and respect from our first meeting which helped me in this stressful situation. He always made himself available when I had a concern or question. He was great at communication and was able to reduce my case to a class c misdemeanor eligible for expunction which allows me to have a fresh start. He takes his job seriously, gets things done, and was highly recommended by another attorney for good reason.
