Worthy of trust and confidence
When I first retained Mr. Dove I was an emotional mess from my divorce, I had six figures in debt, and was about to be sued by a creditor. Mr. Dove's calm and analytical demeanor exuded professionalism and reassurance which was very helpful in my time of need. I no longer felt alone. Mr. Dove has always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner and he is pleasant to interact with. When I went to the bankruptcy court at the onset of my case, he had arrived before me, met me with a smile and explained how the process would proceed. Mr. Dove's knowledge of bankruptcy law and his ability to articulate and simplify complex issues made me feel well represented amidst an overwhelming and sometimes confusing process. Fast-forward three years: I'm more than halfway through my Ch 13 and have made significant progress in paying off my debt. Ryan has guided me through several modifications as my salary fluctuated over the years. I work full-time in a demanding profession and feel Mr. Dove values my time as much as I value the service he provides; he makes the process of modifying needed changes simple and convenient. I highly recommend Ryan Dove J.D. to whomever seeks to finally resolve their debt nightmare. You won't feel alone, he'll be there beside you every step of the way.

Finest Character and Legitimately Sincere
Ryan, took my request for a meeting with impressive urgency and gave me a complete comfort at points of my case. I cannot recommend he and his team any higher. Top notch.

Lawyer you can trust and respect
Like many people, I'm suspicious of attorneys. Visiting with some of them regarding my issues only made me more cynical - they are often self-absorbed, arrogant, unable to clearly communicate... Well, Ryan Dove is the exact opposite of it. Impeccably professional and at the same time friendly and personable. I have seen him not only in his office but also with his colleagues and in court - he has been outstanding. And I'm also partial to people who help stray animals - which Ryan does in his spare time. Great lawyer and great person.

Knowledgeable, Helpful
Mr Dove is just who I needed to help me through my Bankruptcy. During our consultation, he put me at ease and answered my questions. His advice was genuine. He didn't promise me sunshine & rainbows, laid out the facts as they were, and recommended a course of action. I am thankful I chose Mr. Dove to represent me during my Bankruptcy. He took a burden off my mind, and I highly recommend him.

Ryan J. Dove
If you are reading this review, you can consider yourself very fortunate. This is a very difficult time in anyone's life. Having a knowledgable and kind person on your side is so important. I knew Ryan was the right person when he spent over 90 minutes on the phone with me discussing our situation, offering options and guidance without any payment requested. Ryan walked us through the process and we achieved our goal smoothly and efficiently. He was always available for questions and made us feel secure in our case. Thank you Ryan! You have our highest recommendation.

Highly recommend
I highly recommend Mr. Dove. He was always available to answer any and all of my questions either by phone or email. His very reasonable fee, was a flat rate and from the very beginning he was very thorough on what was to be expected for his rate. He truly made this, "what could have been" horrible experience, a pleasant and easy going one.

Satisfied Debt Settlement Client
Mr. Dove helped me with debt settlement lawsuits twice. I was so pleased with his service and the results of my first case that I hired him for a second time a couple years later. He is polite, honest, knowledgeable, thorough, and prompt in responding to inquiries.

Very thorough and great to work with
Ryan made a very stressful process much easier to navigate. He explained all my options in detail and kept me updated every step of the way. Going through something like this can feel like the end of the world, but Ryan presented it and executed in a way that made me realize this was the right way to handle the financial tribulation I'd found myself in. I would recommend him with the highest of grades to anyone in a similar situation to mine.

My Attorney
Ryan Dove did an excellent job with my bankruptcy. He was very clear with me on what was going to happen from our very first meeting. Any questions I would have, he was just a phone call or e-mail a way. I would recommend Ryan Dove to anyone that needed his assistance.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy Attorney | Oct 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Why? Because as a person filing bankruptcy , you don't know what type of attorney you are meeting with usually if no background checks. This attorney provides accurate and detailed answers to Avvo debtors..which shows he has the knowledge and expertise to provide you accurate information. All of us attorneys know attorneys we would never refer a family member to and others who we would refer them to. You should want this type of attorney so you know you are taken care of. I suggest you discuss your case with him first; you can always obtain a second opinion but I am confident you wont want to."

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Dec 05
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Ryan was my right hand in my bankruptcy practice for over five years. Near the end, he was pretty much my left hand as well. Had it not been for my career change, Ryan would have become my partner and taken over my now defunct law firm. He is kind, thorough, prompt, reasonable and knows the ins and outs of our bankruptcy world better than anyone I know. TREAD CAREFULLY when hiring a bankruptcy attorney. You only know you've hired a bad one after it's too late. Ryan is one of the few good ones in town, on every level, and you can't possibly go wrong with him as your lawyer. You have plenty of choices: make a good one and choose Ryan."
