“Ryan Malc, Esq. assisted me in a Personal Inquiry matter. He was very professional and sympathetic during my initial consultation. During the mediation process he talked to me about what to expect and different scenarios. While in the mediation he was professional, composed and stayed firm with our position and got results. I can’t thank you and the firm enough.”— JONATHAN NG
Ryan Malc of Bathgate, Wegener & Wolf P.C. is the most thorough and professional attorney I have had the pleasure to deal with. I retained his service to resolve an SBA issue that I was unable to settle with the lending bank, their attorney, or the SBA directly. It was only his determination, persistence, and willingness to go the “extra mile” that finally brought the issue to a conclusion. There were times I felt he took the problems as personally as I did, without that drive I don’t believe the issue would have been settles as well as it did. I highly recommend his service, he is professionally and personally a pleasure to work with.— Chip Town
