Amid the confusion and disbelief surrounding my wife’s arrest was the realization that, whatever happened, we simply must get the best possible attorney on our side. Now that the matter has been resolved in our favor with no filing of criminal charges, it is clear to me what I thought instinctively about Ryan Okabe — by letter, by phone, in person — from the outset: Ryan Okabe is THE best! Period.
