From a Grateful Client!
Ryan and Becki have been wonderful to work with! They made me feel comfortable throughout my divorce, made sure I understood everything that was happening, and were in constant communication. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for all your help!
Posted by anonymous | March 17, 2009
Highly Recommended
We used Ryan to do our personal wills as well as I have recommended a number of my clients and friends for his services, including wills, trusts and business issues. He is very attentive to details and cares for his clients - two very important characteristics in a lawyer. I would not hesitate to recommend Ryan !
Posted by anonymous | March 16, 2009
Mr. McNeice is very good at helping you understand the law and in terms that on on your level of understanding.

Highly Recommended
I highly recommend Ryan McNeice for legal services. I not only use him as my business lawyer but have also referred other business owners to him. All of them have had excellent feedback about their interactions.

Need a Lawyer? Here is the best!
Ryan McNeice is both extremely knowledgeable and incredibly patient. He handled our family Will, which is not always an easy task. He took the time to listen to what my husband and I wanted and even more time to explain it all page by page! He was always readily accessible when we had a question, indicating to us how important our time was as well. The whole process was simple, no doubt due to Ryan's thoroughness. We wouldn't even consider using another lawyer and recommend him to all those I know.
