OUR ATTORNEYS

Why RKV Law

Business and life has changed dramatically with the New Economy. Unfortunately, the legal profession has been slow to adopt change. Below are a few ways we are different from the rest:

– We leverage cutting-edge technology to enhance our efficiency and accessibility. Our overhead is lower than other law firms and the savings are passed directly to clients. At RKV Law, you pay for high-quality legal advice and nothing more.

– We take on fewer clients than others in the Vail and Roaring Fork Valleys so that we can do better work. Limiting the amount of matters we take on allows us to be more accessible. If an emergency comes up, we’ll be there for you.

– We take a holistic, client-first approach to each problem. Our philosophy is that an attorney-client relationship should be more like a friendship than a stale business transaction.

Testimonials

Georgina kept me updated throughout my case and was devoted to getting me the outcome that we had set out to obtain. Thank you Mrs. Melbye!!!

-Marjorie

Ryan Kalamaya and his team did an outstanding job. I came to him not knowing what to expect, because I had never been in such a severe wreck before. I was nervous, injured and didn’t know what to do. Ryan and his whole team treated me with care and compassion. If I was ever confused, fearful or had any questions they were ready to help. The entire process was professional and attentive. I couldn’t have hope for a better person to have my back during such a traumatic time. Thank you to Ryan and his wonderful team. Highly recommended.

-Jennifer

Amy gave me a sense of security and confidence.
She always provided me with the right information and steps to follow in my case, and always addressed my pending questions and concerns.
I am glad she helped me out with my case and that everything turned out as we hoped it would.

Ryan was sympathetic, helpful and caring. He worked with me financially and emotionally & did everything in the best interest of my family. I feel very greatful to have had him on my side. Thank u Ryan.

-Robin

Georgina has to be one of the best lawyers in the state of Colorado. Other than being very intelligent, she is very dependable and resourceful. I would recommend her any day and glad I was able to have such a professional lawyer to have my back. My case was dismissed and it could not have been done without the help of Georgina.

-anonymous

5 stars Ryan helped me through an accident involving a drunk driver with multiple serious injuries, including myself. He made the process very easy and kept me in the loop the entire way. Not to mention, Ryan helped me get a great settlement for all of us. If you are in the Aspen/Colorado area, he’s your guy.

-Henry

Amy was great. She entered my case two years after the original divorce and helped negotiate a much better parenting plan for me and alleviated a ton of stress from my situation while working with an extremely unreasonable attorney and client on the opposing side. Amy was very professional and easy to work with.

-Anonymous

Amy was professional and clear about the legal process. She was very responsive to requests, questions and communication requests. She was also sensitive to our family’s needs and how she could help us.

-Jennie

Georgina is the best attorney I have had representation with, including civil and criminal. She truly cares, is calm, diligent, and you rest assured with her expertise the BEST possible outcome, if it can be, will be the result of her efforts on your behalf.

-Jud

Amy guided me through my complicated divorce with patience, support and excellent advice. She has the ability to be personable during the emotional times and at the same time very business like when needed. I feel I got the best result with minimal pain for me and my family thanks to Amy.

-Regina

Georgina was great! She made the whole process really easy, I was able to sit back and let her do the work through the whole process. She did a fantastic job of keeping me informed and in the loop whenever nessicary. She helped me reach a deal with the DA and was able to refund a portion of my retainer. Thanks Georgina and RKV Law.

-Zach

Georgina was always available and very responsive to our needs and questions! She was very knowledgeable and patient when it came to explaining the, often confusing and complicated, legal process! We had the best possible outcome with Ryan and Georgina and highly recommend them!!!

-Carla

Ryan is very knowledgeable and experienced in matters of the court and the players involved. I could tell after our first conversation that Ryan is passionate about the law and getting the best result possible. My case involved very sensitive family issues and strange circumstances and he was very compassionate and extremely detail oriented. His honesty and trustworthiness helped me sort through my fear of being intimidated and lied about in a serious court setting. I would recommend Ryan many times over. Thank you Ryan.

-Lauren

Ryan is an excellent attorney for many reasons. He is incredibly knowledgeable and also very compassionate. He listened to my concerns and always helped steer me in the right direction. I am grateful to have had such a great support system during a very tough time in my life. I would recommend Ryan to anyone needing legal advice!

-Trent

I worked with Ryan and his very good assistant in the firm for 8 months dealing with a rear end collision. During that time I received timely notifications with a kind tone. Due to my accident I was not very clear or punctual but Ryan sorted out the facts and dealt with all the insurance adjusters and and medical bills so that I could focus on recovery. Once I had recovered, Ryan quickly wrapped up my case and sent me a nice check. With out Ryan’s help I would not have healed as well or as fast, nor  received compensation for this accident. Ryan is a my top recommendation for any personal injury case you may have.

-Kain

This is the first time I have ever had to work with a lawyer to solve a problem. Myself and some friends were involved in a rear end collision. A drunk driver hit us from behind at full speed while stopped at a red light. Ryan Kalamaya and RKV Law were able to provide me with a clear idea of how things would happen during this process and actively followed through every step of the way just as described. If anything unexpected came up Ryan would meet with me or accept calls to discuss and resolve the matter right away. Ryan and his team managed to get things done in a very short amount of time with a huge amount of success in return. I highly suggest anyone in a tough situation with the law to contact Ryan Kalamaya in the process.

-John

Amy was extremely knowledgeable, succinct, direct and worked so hard to move my case along in a timely fashion. She is kind and a wonderful human being, and I left the process feeling I also had a friend.

-Natalee

Lionheart lawyer with a no-nonsense approach

TJ’s distinguished law firm is quite simply, lawyers with a heart. After relocating thousands of miles away, my husband and I moved into a toxic house, seriously affecting our family’s health. The property management company was grossly irresponsible and downright abusive. TJ was compassionate, reassuring, and made it his mission to expedite breaking our lease and the return of our deposits, for us to secure a new home. He has an unwavering work ethic and even took our call on New Year’s Eve! TJ always had our backs and protected our best interests as if they were his own. Forever grateful.

-Lisa

Ryan represented me with a divorce that could have been super tumultuous. While everyone warned me that the lawyers will end up with all of the money, I felt that Ryan put me first and truly had my best interest in mind. He steered me in the right direction at every crossroad and was very careful to not drag out the divorce and fairly settle the disputes in mediation. He turned into a great friend in the process!

-anonymous

Ryan resolved a post-decree issue for me. I reached out by email and he responded within the hour. We had a phone meeting the next morning. Ryan is a very good listener, and asked the right questions. He can process lot of information very quickly. He was very clear about what we could and could not do. Within 24 hours, he had reviewed my documents. and we had a plan to move forward. His communication was extraordinary with all parties involved.

I was very well represented.

He resolved my case in 21 days. I got a better outcome than I expected. He thought of things that 3 previous attorneys missed. I wish i had hired him to handle my divorce from the beginning. It would have taken less time, and I would have gotten a better settlement with less drama.

-Cynthia

I was looking for a divorce attorney who knew their stuff but would not be contentious for the sake of it. It was my hope to settle and if not settle then to mediate. Amy fit the bill. She knew the law, was easy to communicate with and was reachable. She was straight forward and helped me to reach a settlement that secures my future. She was reasonable yet did not back down on the important issues.

-L.E.

Ryan is a very personable and knowledgeable. He is responsible to his clients and treats them with respect and courtesy. He takes the time to think through complex issues and communicates problems and solutions with clarity and understanding. I would definitely give Ryan a 5-Star rating.

-Mark
