Easy and Reliable
Ryan was absolutely fantastic! Whenever I met with him, I felt as though I was meeting him as a friend, rather than as a client. He explained everything to me in simple terms and made it all so easy. I would recommend him to anyone, as he was recommended to me. He helped me through my criminal speeding case and I was able to get off with the most minimal of punishments. If I ever needed a lawyer again, he would be the first I went to, if even for a recommendation. He knew exactly what he was talking about; I would trust him with anything.

Ryan was AMAZING
We hired Ryan to represent our daughter for her order of protection the defendant was trying to get dismissed. He listened to all of her concerns and became well versed in the case very quickly. He didn’t have much time to prepare. He discussed strategies with her as well as prepared her to go on the stand so she would feel comfortable and know what to expect. He was extremely friendly and walked her through everything. He did his job with excellence and she prevailed! We couldn’t be more pleased with the services that Ryan provided. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney and will use him again if needed in the future.

Excellant Attourney
Ryan took the four dangerous and repetitive felony charges that I faced and got them lowered to one non dangerous and non repetitive charge. I faced eight years in prison and Ryan got it lowered to two ears probation.

Weed DUI Dismissed!!!!
Sat down with 5 different attorneys when I was arrested for a stop sign/marijuana DUI. I picked Mr Mcphie and am so happy that I did. Police dash cam only showed 1 perspective but missed the actual stop sign violation. Mr Mcphie fought the case from every angel and got the evidence tossed out. Great lawyer = Great outcome.

Treated a small case like a big deal and got it dismissed!
Ryan McPhie was very responsive to our calls. He helped us by filing a motion with the court explaining our side of the story and he got our case dismissed when we showed up for the hearing that came out of it. Ryan's reputation with the court came through for us big time. We appreciate his help!

Team Ryan to the Rescue
I cannot say enough good about this law firm. I found myself facing federal charges after my spinal cord injury was mistaken for impairment. I am a licensed professional, so I was looking at potentially losing my entire career. I’ve dedicated my life to serving others and these charges had the potential to impact so many more lives than just my own. Not only did Ryan and his team achieve a resolution to my case, I received more care and support than I could have imagined from an attorney. The price was also the best I was quoted, too. I cannot say enough, you will feel safe with this attorney. If you’ve been looking for a sign, let this be it. They truly care about their clients and reassured me throughout the process. Grand Canyon Law Firm is the way to go.

Lifesaver and someone you want in your corner.
I was caught in a bad legal situation. In my time of need my brother hired Ryan for me while I was still stuck in a jail cell and couldn't get access to a phone. My very first run in with the law happened to be felony charges. Ryan's first impression that he left on me still shines to this day. Standing there listening to him on a video call he assured me that I will get the best representation he can perform. Ryan's team is professional and efficient. I was glad to have a light in my darkest hour and will never forget that. If, god forbid, I or my loved ones get in legal trouble I know who to trust. Thank you.

Treated me Like Family
I found Ryan at a crucial time in my life. Never needing legal help before, I was unsure where to turn and extremely stressed. Finding Ryan was the best thing that ever could’ve happened to me. He was so empathetic and kind. He gave me instant hope and got to work on the case instantly. He believed in a great outcome and worked hard to inform and paint the full picture for the prosecution. Ryan made me feel as though I was a family member he was fighting for. He was thorough, dedicated, and empathetic. He took the time to explain and answer all of my questions. His team has just as many admirable traits. And talk about efficient, I always had updates via email or phone call as soon as something new transpired. It was so comforting to know I had such a great guy in my corner that worked countless hours to fight tooth and nail to achieve amazing end results and get my case dismissed.

Best legal defense
A few months ago I was in a scary situation and found myself needing a criminal attorney, something I never imagined could happen in my 70+ years. When I contacted Ryan at GCLG, he immediately understood how frightening this was for me, and from beginning to end, he compassionately reassured me that I would be okay. Based on his experience and skill, he was able to guide me through the whole process and got my case completely dismissed. I have profound respect and gratitude for people who so competently help others in this way. Thanks Ryan and everyone at GCLG. Choosing you and your firm was absolutely the best choice for me.

DO NOT HESITATE TO HIRE HIS SERVICES!!!!
I recommend you RUN TO RYAN MCPHIE if you need legal help. My son hired him after paying another attorney and receiving very poor to no help at all. Ryan even gave him a discount in his fee since the other attorney had been so neglectful as well as refused to provide any refund. Ryan thankfully turned out to be a very thorough and competent professional who always had my son's best interests in mind. He was honest and would not hesitate to tell my son the truth even if it wasn't good news. He always kept my son informed and always answered or responded back to my son's calls. Ryan provided nothing but the best customer service. He even still assists my son with questions even after the court hearings are over. Again, DO NOT HESITATE TO HIRE HIS SERVICES!!!
