I Hired Ryan for what should have been a divorce or annulment case. Nothing much done except change of venue in three months and perhaps sending response to me from opposing attorney and showing up to put off a Pende Lite hearing that my spouse did not need but used as a stall tactic(such an emergency she went back to her country for a month to spend more money).. I think Ryan would have been good if the divorce or I should separation process was friendly. The opposing counsel who also on this site (of which I did not use before I hired him) was much more aggresive than he was. Both counsels almost appeared too friendly to each in court so I got an uneasy feeling . Never objected to any of her discovery request but it seem the other attorneys slammed me with objections. I said I would not complete 65 pages upon receipt of nonsense so we parted ways when his assistant told him three weeks later. He could have sent objections and told me I could have objected to the nonsense busy work. After interviewing with 3 different attorneys they all told me that a Divorce or an Annulment should have been filed immediately. Don't get me wrong nice guy with good intentions but he just could not handle the opposing attorney. He also gave me and my girlfriend the impression that they may have been colusion not that i believe there was. But I will say I had to almost double the rate for the new attorney since $300.00 an hour got me nowhere (Sorry for other good $300.00hr attorneys). So hire him if your case is open and close with no real need for much communication.. If you want a fighter you should look elsewhere.

I should have know better. Didn't get a good feeling at consultation. After our first meeting he consitantly missed deadlines, despite my constantly reminding him. He never returned phone calls or emails. I basicly had to do his job for him. He also billed me for his mistakes. I finally fired him halfway through my divorce. Just terrible
