Professional, Respected and Compassionate
Mr. Nussey has been handling the enforcement issues of my divorce since 2015. I truly feel as if he has protected my children and me from a narcissistic, angry and vengeful person. He has helped me through enforcement issues around visitation, my ex husbands significant child support arrears, and a property settlement agreement. Clearly my divorce was complicated and emotional, yet Ryan was always pragmatic, supportive, and very knowledgeable about every aspect of my case. Over the last 7 + years, he has never led me down the wrong path. Mr Nussey Honest, forthright, cuts to the chase and doesn’t waste anyones time. I cannot say enough good things about his positive and compassionate disposition which is balanced with exceptional attention to detail and execution. There is no one better in the business.

Superb
Mr. Nussey has been working with me for the past 4 years on several occasions as we have been in court to maintain custody of my goddaughter and her biological sister. I originally consulted with him in 2017 as I applied for Emergency Custody. I have hired Mr. Nussey for several court appearances since consulting. Ryan has been nothing short of professional, compassionate, and of course effective. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him on our case. Mr. Nussey has represented our family many times, and he will continue to be the lawyer I turn to with child custody situations. I would highly recommend him in representing your family as well.

Better than I could have hoped for
Ryan Nussey and his team were recommended to me by my divorce lawyer, when my ex filed a false report which later landed me with a Final Restraining order. Ryan was highly recommended for his experience with appeals. But we never even made it to an appellate(?) court. Because Ryan immediately recognized how unjustly I had been treated and was able to get the original case retried completely. Saving me a ton of money and grief. As I understand it, an appellate court case would’ve cost way more money correct my situation. Ultimately Ryan had the Final Restraining Order case retried on its merits and won this case for me, having the original ruling fully vacated, by the same judge. He continued to guide me through the a series of follow-up matters and court room appearances, to correct residual effects the original unjust ruling. He is an upstanding man, who genuinely cared about my situation and fought for me with unyielding resolve. In the court room I was floored, and even a bit unnerved. The exchanges between Ryan and the Judge, were often awe inspiring, even if a bit scary. From my perspective, the Judge seemed to be acting as a prosecutor on my ex’s behalf. And in-spite of all the very clear video evidence showing her claims to be lies, the Judge continued to champion her cause. He would often try to shift the focus of the case. Or try to trip me up on some seemingly un-connected detail, all in an attempt to preserve his original ruling. Ryan Nussey was always quick remind the Judge of the rules/laws that even a Judge has to follow. And encouraged the Judge to do just that, leading to much agitation on the judges part. In the end, in-spite of his personal championing and obvious favoring of my Ex, the Judge was left with no choice but to vacate the original FRO because when properly tried on its merits, it had no legs. Ryan actually fought for me. He was sharp, unrelenting, and could recall facts, in great detail, at a moments notice, that I had only just informed him, once earlier that day. I used to think the Judge would always be impartial, and was effectively unquestionable. Ryan proved that notion wrong, and displayed how invaluable a Lawyer is when keeping court room proceedings fair and just. Ryan fought for me, and would not be intimidated into backing down, in-spite of the Judges many attempts. Ryan fought for me, I hope that is clear by now. Him and his team deserve way more then what they collected from me. I will always appreciate what they did.

The Best Attorney Around
I recently finalized my divorce, and it was a long process with many mixed emotions. I couldn’t have found a better person to represent myself and my children. Ryan is smart, transparent, honest, professional, and an absolute shark when needed. Divorce is always hard, there are no exceptions but with Ryan you will get the best result possible. Thank you Ryan, I am very grateful.

The Best. Not enough space in here to really explain every detail on why. On a scale of 1/10 I think my case was an 8. Having Ryan and his team was like lifting a burden off of my shoulders. I was able to focus on the things I need to do for my case. as far as I’m concerned these guys/girls have given my family something I could never repay. We are all together again and if you are committed to your family there is none better. Thanks again! Sincerely Keith, Lucas, and Charlise...plus the happiest dad.

Efficient and relatable
Mr. Nussey and his team were very efficient and practical in their guidance and support through my divorce. I found Ryan to be relatable - he didn’t throw a bunch of jargon at me - and reasonable in his approach. I appreciate Ryan’s expertise and calm outlook. He’s been a great resource.

Up against a narcissist
Ryan was my second lawyer during my Covid divorce from a narcissist. My first lawyer let my ex drag things out and manipulate everything. Ryan and his legal team put a stop to all of the games, and I am now happily divorced and not afraid to go up against my ex. Ryan knows the law and stands firm for his client. (Plus he has a sense of humor in difficult times.)

Helped me win primary custody as a father
I have been a client of Ryan's since 2014. He has been professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I had to go through hell with my ex-wife just to see my daughter. Ryan helped me hold her accountable and we won every single motion in court. Eventually, we had a trial and he helped me win primary custody of my daughter. He never made any errors and my voice came through loud and clear in his representation. He is always prompt and his prices are very reasonable and fair for the service he provides. If you are a father who keeps getting jerked around by a mother who isn't following the court established rules, Ryan is your go-to lawyer to hold them accountable and get your rights back. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Ryan. As a father in family court it's hard enough with biases against you. Ryan knows what he is doing and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my case in NJ. Thanks to Ryan, we now live a peaceful life and my daughter is happy. If you need help, please see this man.

Compassionate and Caring Experience
What is the number one thing I can I say about Klineburger & Nussey? Compassionate. Partner, Ryan Nussey and Associate, Carolyn Labin recently acted as my representation. Their professionalism and ability to act in tandem as a team was amazing. Each’s responsiveness, depending on my question or need, and his/her area of expertise, was full of understanding and guidance. Without hesitation, I would employ their firm repeatedly.

Best decision I made
I hired Ryan in 2015 and he has represented me in all of my custody hearings. I had every outcome favor me in every motion filed. I was an out of state father coming into my sons mother county thinking that would work against me. I was mostly impressed with how his aggressiveness arguing the exhibits seemed so smooth. It’s a fine line to navigate without coming off as aggressive. And just as impressive was the in between the court hearings , I’m an anxious guy by nature and the calmness that came over me with just the way he communicated with me was very reassuring.... What kind of relationship I will have with my son would come down to who will fight hardest for me in court, I chose Ryan and he didn’t let me down

Resolving a financial issue having to do with our adult son going back to school for a 2nd degree..
I recently had a difficult case that Ryan resolved for me.. I had been turned down by 11 other lawyers to take my case. ( my ex is in the legal system in NJ) No one wanted to go against my ex husband)... to make a long story short. Ryan willingly took me on as a client and won the case!.. I can’t tell you how grateful I am . My case is simple.. our 26 year old emancipated son wanted to go back to school for a 2nd degree. Well.. My ex husband , without involving me in any conversation having to do with this expected me to pay for half of this expensive private school.. He wanted to ‘’unemancipate’ our son. .. I would highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again if I ever needed help!

Highly Recommend
I’ve been working with Ryan Nussey and his law firm for more years than I would like (no fault of the attorneys. My son’s father is just that difficult) But thankfully, I chose a great firm to represent me. I have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Nussey and some of his associates. Everyone has been very knowledgeable of the law and professional. I am very thankful I stuck with them throughout the years. Mr. Nussey tells you like it is and is a very straight shooter. Love that about him. He will only do what is absolutely necessary for your case and does NOT waste your time or money. He represented me very well during my custody trial. I was very happy with the outcome. I will continue working with Mr. Nussey and his firm as other issues arise.

Unrivaled...
After paying alimony for nearly 15 years my husband sought some expert opinions regarding possible modification and or termination due to his inability to continue paying upon retirement, a crucial matter which was NOT even addressed in the final divorce decree. In light of the amended alimony reform he met with two attorneys, one of which was actually involved in the alimony reform. Both attorneys felt he did not meet the new guidelines and therefore, would be bound to fulfill his obligation of "lifetime" alimony. A few days later he was referred to Ryan Nussey. We met with Ryan and he immediately made us feel at ease. He was straightforward, honest and blunt but also, very understanding. His knowledge of family law is exceptional and his confidence was very uplifting. He envisioned the entire process and was prepared to move forward. He and his colleague, Carolyn, made us feel like we were their only clients. Every phone call, e-mail, or question was immediately addressed. We met in October and as of March 31, 2020 my husband's alimony is TERMINATED!!! My husband can finally breathe!! Klineburger and Nussey. Ryan Nussey. The ONLY family law attorney you will ever need. Trust us, you are doing yourself a great injustice by not using Ryan Nussey. A huge thank you to Ryan, Carolyn, and all the staff! We are eternally grateful.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Nussey is an outstanding attorney. He is professional yet compassionate, organized and knowledgeable, pragmatic and straight forward. Mr. Nussey handled several motions for me, centered upon enforcement of my FJD. We were successful in each motion because he is brilliant and is very well respected.

Ryan has represented us for several legal matters over the span of six years now. Another attorney referred us to Ryan, telling us that he is the best. We are so grateful for that advice and fervently agree.

Very satisfied. Highly recommend
I have hired Ryan and his office for several family matters over the last few years. I have always been happy with the service in the office. Charmaine is wonderful and so are the other assistants. Ryan is great too! I have had attorneys who don't read emails or respond to phone calls. That is NOT him. He is on point in the courtroom as well. I am very pleased with the service I have received from him and will continue to use him for any future family matters. I highly recommend him and his office.
