Ryan was astounding during the whole process. He kept me informed and did everything in his power to get me the best deal. I was very impressed with the service I received and would recommend him to anyone. He was extremely knowledgeable and my favorite part was that if you asked him a question he gave you a staight up, not sugar coated answer. Example: He explained it very easy terms to understand what my options were, what I should do to improve my situation, and in the end I was content with the results. He helped me help myself. He's a good lawyer and you will also be satisfied. He genuinely cares about his clients, he even still calls me occasionally to check in and see how I'm doing!
Thanks Ryan, I appreciate your hard work on my case!

I hired Ryan Tegnelia after I got my 4th DUI and I cannot say enough good things about him! Anyone who has to go out of their way to hire a lawyer is going to have lots of questions and concerns about their case and one of Ryan's best qualities was how easy he was to get a hold of. I never had to call him numerous times or sit and wait for his call. I always got an answer right away or in a timely manner. Most Lawyers always seem like they are in a hurry but Ryan made me feel like I was a very important client to him and he cared about my case and what was going to happen to me. At my arraignment the judge ordered me to wear the SCRAM bracelet and Ryan somehow got the Judge to let me take it off at my next hearing 2 weeks later! I was facing prison time and in the end I only had to do a little bit of local time. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome or lawyer and anyone who is looking for an excellent and knowledgeable lawyer should hire Ryan Tegnelia! They will be lucky they did!!!!!
