"smarter than the average bear"
Spoke with Ryan for a free consultation and learned more in 30 minutes over the phone than I did from numerous, lengthy inquiries with other firms. Ryan's language is "parsimonious and concise" all the while his warmth and genuine attention to my own unique issues assuaged my anxiety. I highly recommend this gentleman lawyer.
