In 2017, Ryan and Trey were both selected as Super Lawyers by their peers as two of the top 5% of practicing attorneys. Trey was selected in 2017 for the 10th time. Ryan was also rated among the “Top 50 DUI Attorneys for Kansas” by the National Advocacy for DUI Defense.

Trey was selected for the second straight year to the “Nation’s Top 1%” by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.

Their clients have included high profile attorneys, athletes, law enforcement officers, business owners, bondsmen and others who are familiar with the criminal justice system and personally have witnessed the work of the best lawyers in Kansas City and selected Pettlon & Ginie to help them when they needed attorneys.

I should have done this long ago, but better late than never. Trey is a fantastic attorney, and worked tirelessly to keep me optimistic about my case, worked diligently to pursue my innocence, and in the end, justice prevailed. I owe the life I live now to Trey - he's the best.

I was charged with a felony because of a made up story by my ex. I wasn't taking a plea. We had a trial and after closing arguments, Trey and I went to put change in our parking meters. Before we could even make it out of the courthouse, we got a call from the judge's assistant that the jury was back with a verdict. Not guilty! I wouldn't use another lawyer.

Mr. Ginie was very proactive in his approach to resolving my DUI case. Not only was the case dismissed but he has also helped to expunge the arrest. Best I could have hoped for.

Trey Pettlon is a great trial attorney!

I was charged with a felony theft because of a business disagreement! I have some criminal convictions in my past because I used to fight a lot when I was young so I would have gone to prison for 4 years if I was convicted of this B.S. My other attorney told me to hire Trey. He said we were going to have to have a jury trial. But he was wrong. He got it dismissed at our preliminary hearing! He fought for me. He argued with the prosecutor and the judge. And at the end of the evidence the judge said, and I quote "this isn't a crime!" I'll never be able to thank Trey enough. If you are innocent, you couldn't have a better attorney.

Mr. Ginie completely solved a legal problem for me that could have ended my professional career. He and his staff were very knowledgeable with the JO CO system which makes a night and day difference. His fees were more than reasonable and you can't put a price on justice. Wish I could say more. I would never hire anyone else. Dr. A

I was WRONGFULLY ACCUSED of a serious crime and it was the scariest experience of my life! We went to trial and Trey got the case dismissed after a jury trial. I knew I was in good hands from the start (I asked other friends and lawyers.) but seeing him in court was everything I hoped and more. My former attorney recommended him and I am so thankful he did. He is a great trial attorney and I almost defintely would have been convicted without him.

Criminal case dismissed.

He was great in getting my case dismissed know that there was a mix up in the police's lack of procedures.

Trey was recommended to me by a lawyer who said and I quote, " if anyone in my family were in need of a great lawyer I would want Trey Pettlon to represent them." I am so thankful that I listened to those words. Trey helped me through an incredibly stressful time, he was thoughtful, direct, supportive, prepared and most importantly honest. I would highly recommend him.

Thank Ryan

I would like to thank Ryan for all that he had done for my son's case. My son could be faced with a charge that could have followed him for the rest of his life. With the help of Ryan, my son can rest easy knowing that he will no longer have to worried about this. Again my son Ben and I would like to thank you.

Darrell Smith: (Fellow lawyer in the community)

Mr. Pettlon is the lawyer that other lawyers will turn to in time of need. This is high praise and it is probably universally the opinion of any member of the Bench or the Bar Association familiar with his work. I have known him for twenty-seven years and have consulted with him on numerous occasions. His ethics are beyond reproach but the thing that separates him is trial experience. For years I kept and reported trial statistics for the Bar Association in one of the larger metropolitan counties where Mr. Pettlon frequently tried cases. His results for his criminal clients were outstanding. Numerous and frequent “not guilty” verdicts in that jurisdiction stand as evidence of his trial skills. I am always amazed when people fail to verify their lawyer's trial experience. While someone has to be a lawyer's "first client," in any particular type of case a "Pettlon client," can rest assured his lawyer has, "been there, done that," many times before.

Ryan Ginie Identified as One of the Top DUI Attorneys in Kansas by the National Advocacy for DUI Defense (NAFDD)

Ryan Ginie is a member of the National Advocacy for DUI Defense (NAFDD), LLC, an organization that awards the nation’s best private Driving Under the Influence (DUI) attorneys.

NAFDD identifies the top criminal defense attorneys in each state based upon their experience, reputation, and achievements, among other factors. Those who are selected spend a significant portion of their practice representing individuals accused of DUI offenses (sometimes called DWI, DWII, OUI, OVI, OWI or OUII).

DUI law is a highly specialized field. Effective DUI attorneys navigate through many complex legal issues, including the lawfulness of stops, detentions, and arrests; the reliability of field sobriety tests; the accuracy of breath and blood testing methods, including retrograde extrapolations; and driver license ramifications and administrative hearings. The attorneys selected by NAFDD have distinguished themselves by demonstrating particularized knowledge, skill, experience, and expertise in each of these areas, among others.

NAFDD’s selection criteria are driven by a number of considerations. To meet minimum eligibility requirements, an attorney (1) must be licensed and in good standing with his or her state bar organization, (2) must be in private practice, (3) has to have practiced DUI law for at least seven years, and (4) must devote a significant portion of his or her practice to DUI defense. Additional factors include:

  • Total length of time the attorney has been practicing criminal law
  • Number of DUI clients the attorney has represented
  • Jury trial experience
  • Bench trial experience
  • DUI case results
  • Formal DUI training
  • DUI publications
  • DUI presentations
  • Available peer reviews
  • DUI-related achievements and/or awards
  • History of ethical disciplinary actions

Mr. Ginieis an experienced DUI attorney, who has been in practice since 2005. He vigorously defends DUI cases in the Olathe area and has once again, for the 4th consecutive year, been identified as a top DUI attorney in Kansas.

The National Advocacy for DUI Defense understands that there is no easy way to separate an accomplished DUI attorney from the less experienced. By recognizing the best DUI attorneys in each state and across the nation, NAFDD validates professional excellence in the legal community. Its statewide selections serve as a valuable resource for clients looking for experienced and competent DUI defense counsel.
