Good-natured guy to help you through bankruptcy
When I first met Ryan for the free consultation he was dressed in jeans and a jacket, and that casual dress characterized his dealings with me. He never spoke to me in legaleze and did everything to put me at ease and help me through the intimidating and confusing process of a chapter 7. Even when I was very late for the meeting of creditors, Ryan showed no impatience and managed to hold my place for the hearing. When I asked for further legal advice, which I'm not sure was strictly covered in our contract, he gave it fast, free of charge, and with a smile. While bankruptcy isn't fun, he does put a cherry on top of his services. For such great quality he is very well-priced. I chose Ryan because his competition was OK with trash-talking one another during consultation and he wasn't, and I'm glad I did.

Professional Attorney & Staff
I had a very difficult situation, and I faced being homeless, Ryan gave me good advice, and filed an emergency Bankruptcy to keep me in my home, he was very honest, and his staff was always a step ahead, I have recommended his services to my friends and can't stop talking about how thorough he is and how professional he is, and he also makes you feel important, I will always be grateful for him and his staff for keeping me in my home, and making my bankruptcy experience a lot less stressful than I had thought it would be..Thank you again Ryan and Staff for being there for me in the time of need.

Fantastic experience
I never met with an attorney. The front office staff helped to keep me on track and never made me feel bad for not keeping good track of deadlines on my own. I’m highly impressed with their service! Paula gets 5 stars!!!

The Best in the Business!
I met with several bankruptcy attorneys over the course of several months before deciding to move forward. After having a phone conference with Ryan, I was confident that he was the guy to get the job done! After our initial consult, some medical and "life" things happened and I didn't end up moving forward with him for a year. He was still eager to help me and very nice. Many attorneys in the area I met with seemed like they were just interested in my money (which I didnt have much of) and getting me out the door so they could get the next person in. Ryan was not that way, he took the time to answer all my questions, set up reasonable costs and carried out the process wonderfully. It was smooth, I understood everything that was happening and more importantly - I felt like he really cared about what he was doing for me. I needed the fresh start BADLY after several medical incidents that ruined me financially. As a single mom, I was buried and struggling - Ryan and his team answered every question I had along the way and offered valuable information, advice and time. I would recommend them to ANYONE in the area looking for assistance with Bankruptcy.

The Best Professional and Knowledgeable Bankruptcy Attorney
Well I have to say that after seeing two other attorneys that were positive that I was only able to Chapter 13, Ryan said a Chapter 7 was the way to go. He made me feel like a person not another profit center. He is so knowledgeable and professional. He was correct and saved me and my family years of stress and financial loss. If you are looking for the best advice and professional courtesy we all deserve as clients, Ryan is you're guy. Thank You again for all you did for us.

Highly recommended
Mr. Hackett was referred to me by a coworker who had a great experience with his services a few years ago. It’s amazing how just one positive review from someone can ease our worries. I can confirm my coworker was right and Mr. Hackett not only took care of everything but took time to answer all of my questions. There were even a few times I would shoot him a quick email with a question that was troubling me. I would get a response same or next day and he always made me feel as though he cared about doing his job. Ryan Hackett helps people get the fresh start they need and deserve.

Great experience working with Ryan
I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy last year and Ryan was very friendly and helpful right from the start. He took the time to listen to me and communicated what needed to be done. It was nice to have his advice and knowledge especially since Ive never been through a bankruptcy process before (and hopefully never again!) He took care of everything so quickly, I was so happy! He made a daunting experience much more bearable indeed!

So Helpful!
While I never thought I would have to file Bankruptcy, it came to the point where I needed to. Ryan walked me through the entire process, which I couldn't have done on my own. Ryan was so helpful. From my first meeting with him through the end of my bankruptcy, every question I had, he answered. Thank you so much!

Chapter 7
After talking to Ryan about filing Chapter 7 I couldn't have felt more relieved. He told me everything that was going to happen and answered all of my questions. He made the process quick and painless!!
