Attorney Ryan Helmick was heaven-sent and I can’t thank him enough for helping me lower my DUI and failure-to-stop cases to reckless driving and illegal parking, respectively. He is very professional and respectable, not to mention good-looking if I may add. To all of you reading this, trust me he is the best out there and you won’t regret having him handle your case! Five stars all the way!

- Speak the truth.Breathing taking entrance as you arrive and upon leaving with a relief because with Ryan’s dedication just amazing at what he does and makes sure you’re informed. I’ve added more trouble to what I already had and it was closed immediately. The Defense Firm will always speak the truth.-Allah sees ALL seen and unseen

If you dont hear from him you hear from his assistant. He's fast, the one court hearing I needed to show up for I was in there for 5 min. He got my dui charge down to a reckless driving charge. Just a few drug classes, a fat lesson . A $981 fine. It will not ever happen again but if it did . I'm calling him.

Ryan knows his stuff! He’s a very informed and passionate person, and those things translate into how he runs his business. We were facing double digit numbers and he got the heaviest charges dropped! Overall I’d say Ryan is a good person, even better lawyer, and he treats his clients well! Thank you! My brother and I appreciate what you were able to do for us!

Ryan Helmick is THE BEST defense attorney in ALL OF VEGAS. I am beyond grateful to have Ryan on my side. He gives clear tips and instructions of what I should be doing during a case. As long as YOU’RE DOING EVERYTHING Ryan tells you to do you should have a better than expected outcome. Ryan helped me with one of the most difficult challenges in my life. He was there for us the entire team and went above and beyond. He showed up and took control of the situation immediately. He guided us throughout the whole process every step of the way. And I faced an outcome that I couldn’t even believe was imaginable. Ryan is the ABSOLUTE BEST and definitely knows what he’s doing.

First I would like to thank everyone at the firm. From the first time I called all my questions were answered and I was also seen that same day with Ryan. He was honest and gave us every outcome. But not once did he ever doubt our situation. He walked us through every court and he was always a phone call away. No matter what time of day he always returned my calls. Ryan was so easy to work with and very knowledgeable and personable. He went above and beyond. Honestly the best Attorney ever. Everyone in the firm was professional. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us. I highly recommend Ryan.

Attorney Ryan Helmick did a fantastic job representing our case. We only had a week to prepare the case and Ryan was willing to spend the time with us to get the job done. He even spent 3 additional hours with us until 11 pm the Saturday night before the hearing to finalize the strategy of the case with us. He gave us an honest and realistic perspective on what we could expect during the hearing and what to expect with the outcome. He also called us himself when he received the outcome of the hearing. I liked how Ryan always personally contacted us with important information and we did not have to work through administrative personnel or paralegals. Ryan was very easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend Ryan and the Defense Firm. He went the extra mile for us.
