Client Testimonials

I am giving a 5 star review for Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian but more specifically for Ryan Kreck, Attorney at Law. He has represented different members of my family in criminal cases; as well as, a DWI. Mr. Kreck is respectful and truly cares about your case and you as a person. He is an attorney that will answer an email quickly and at times he’d squeeze a slot open just to update us in person on a case or at one point cases. I have had experiences before with another firm and nothing compares to Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian. Ryan Kreck is the bulldog you want in your corner because he will not stop until you get the best result possible. He has great rapport with judges and prosecutors and you know your case is in good hands when Ryan is handling your legal battles!

Aside from the undeniably highly proficient performance negotiating in the courtroom for my case, Ryan was also extremely professional and egalitarian through the entire couple-year-long process it ended up being. Never felt like we were on different pages; it felt like a team effort where we were all on the same side at all times and I was more than pleased with the end results of my case which could have been much much worse. Choosing Ryan Kreck has proven to be a wise decision on the part of everyone involved. Thanks again Ryan and associates for your above and beyond efforts from start to finish.
