Ryan went above and beyond through the whole legal process. He didn’t accept that a guilty verdict was even an option from square one.

Brilliance exemplified!
Ryan is an incredible Attorney in addition to being a fine human being. He lives a life of service to others, and is seemingly in the law business for the sole purpose of helping others. He is literally the most intelligent man I’ve ever met and goes the extra mile in every respect to be helpful with various legal situations. He has he assisted me and my family immeasurably with our legal matters. I felt very preyed upon when an very old criminal matter came screaming back into my life. My circumstances seemed hopeless and Ryan restored my hope by dealing masterfully with the situation. I highly recommend him.
