A Lawyer For The People
Some defense attorneys tout their backgrounds in law enforcement or the prosecutor’s office. I have never worked for the other side. I have no loyalty past or present to the government. My entire career has been devoted to protecting the rights of the accused. I stand between you and the powerful forces of the government to shield you from the harshest consequences of an arrest.
For over 15 years, my staff and I have been making a real difference in the lives of real people. Our clients include business owners, professionals, blue collar workers and young people with their whole lives ahead of them. I understand the high stakes for your freedom, your livelihood, your standing in the community and your future.
Homegrown And Courtroom Tested
I grew up on the West Side of Grand Rapids and graduated from West Catholic High. I earned my undergrad at Aquinas College, an MBA from Grand Valley State University and my law degree from Michigan State University. I returned to my local roots to practice law, building a reputation in Grand Rapids and beyond for high-caliber and compassionate criminal defense.
What sets this firm apart is trial experience and the quality of results. I have tried nearly 90 cases in state and federal courts in Kent County and throughout Michigan. While I regularly get cases dismissed and negotiate favorable deals, my demonstrated skills at trial are a critical backstop if your case does go to court.
What Clients Say
About Ryan Maesen Attorney at Law
Always very prepared and poised
I was charged with embezzlement from my former employer. I was high up in the company and had actually quit before the embezzlement took place. Ryan fought really really hard for me for a year and half to get the charges dropped. A conviction would have ruined my career. In the courtroom, he was able to be nice when he had to be and feisty when it was called for. I was very impressed with that. I have seen lawyers wilt under tough questioning from a judge, but he was always very prepared and poised.
I picked up a cheap misdemeanor recently which wasn’t too bad but I was on felony probation and was afraid of being sent to prison for violating the felony probation. A friend wanted me to hire a firm in downtown Grand Rapids, one that must have spent a fortune advertising and bragging about how they are all former feds. I wasn’t having that. I am not paying for a lawyer’s advertising, fancy office, or ego. I had used Ryan before and he told me I was going home from jail that day, and I did. He did a great job again. I was able to avoid prison and move on with my life. Highly recommend if you want real results, not marketing hype.
Truly owe him my life
I was accused of molesting my stepdaughter, which I did not do. My wife’s ex husband put her up to it. She never said anything. CPS closed the case but I was arrested anyway. Ryan got them to dismiss the case at the preliminary exam without even running it. He was great at playing for time to get things lined up in our favor. I truly owe him my life. There is no coming back from being a convicted child molester.
