The entire time Ryan and his staff was always keeping me up to date and keeping me informed which was a HUGE difference from my last experience. He took the time to explain how the justice process was going to work, and watching him and listening to him in court is something to see. After all was said and done, first he got my implied consent dismissed and within an hour he got my criminal charges dismissed as well. I ended up pleading guilty to a petty misdemeanor for an equipment violation, needless to say huge win for Ryan, and huge win for me.
