“Ryan was referred to us by a friend of our sons. We had never needed a lawyer before so we really had no idea who to go with or where to even start. We called his office and were immediately given great advice; we felt no need to call anyone else...”

M.M.


“I was charged with a Felony along with several other Charges due to poor police work and little care by the government. I knew I needed someone that could represent me in court and show that I did nothing wrong...”

A.G.


“I know Ryan from having worked on a case with him years ago. He was professional, prepared, and very comfortable in a courtroom. I was definitely impressed. Since then, I have referred friends and clients to him, and he devotes his personal attention to their matters. I know they are in good hands. That is why I feel confident in making referrals to Ryan Pacyga.”

Ryan is immensely skilled and knowledgeable in criminal defense. Ryan brings 110% effort, with full engagement to achieve success for his clients. Ryan has a reputation for being one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Minnesota. I have the highest regard for Ryan and no hesitation recommending him to others.”

What Makes Attorney Ryan Pacyga Uniquely Qualified To Represent You?

I defend people being accused of serious crimes including murder, assault, fraud, criminal sexual conduct, firearms and drug trafficking in state and federal courts across the nation. Victories include not guilty verdicts and dismissals in criminal sexual conduct, murder, assault, burglary, controlled substance/drugs, robbery, firearm possession, prostitution and DWI cases. I strive not only to get the best results in court for my clients, but to improve their lives as well by helping with any underlying issues that may exist such as addiction/alcoholism, anxiety, depression, anger management and a host of other issues that commonly plague defendants in the criminal justice system.

I am on the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I am also a Life Member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

I am honored to be named to Super Lawyers annually.

I frequently lecture about trial skills and techniques and criminal defense strategies at law schools and continuing legal education seminars. Other criminal defense lawyers frequently call me for advice and even hire me to do their trials. I am also a radio, newspaper and television commentator – you may have heard me on 93X or KFAN. I enjoy mentoring young lawyers and I feel grateful to protect the accused.
