HIGHLY RECOMMEND RYAN !!
Ryan is not only a highly competent attorney, he is a very compassionate and caring human being! He guided me through a protracted and contentious divorce with the utmost patience and attention to detail. He was consistently available to communicate with me via the phone or email, and addressed all of my concerns in a timely manner, while also doing his best to control my legal expenses. Ryan took the time to get to know the particular needs of me and my children, showing genuine concern for us throughout proceedings. His kindness and sense of humor greatly reduced my anxiety during my darkest days. Ultimately, Ryan was able to-quite miraculously- settle my case without court intervention, though his superior negotiation skills. I had interviewed several attorneys before choosing Ryan to represent me.....and I am so glad that I close him. I would highly recommend Ryan to a anyone looking for a matrimonial lawyer !!

Clear guidance
Being a parent is the greatest gift in life and no one ever wants to be in the position where the other parent of their child is in a place where they don't feel safe having their child with them and having them be able to make (or stand in the way of you making) important decisions for them. When that day came for me, and I knew I needed to file for sole custody and knew I needed an attorney to help, I came to Ryan. He guided me clearly on being articulate my concerns and helped me to set realistic expectations for what to expect from the process. He knew what I was unwilling to waiver on, and guided me through the process of making the best decisions for my child. He spoke with opposing counsel and was able to negotiate thru all the open terms. In the end, I now have sole custody and know I could not have gotten through the process without Ryan.

There’s no one better than Ryan Riezenman.
I had a very complicated case re: child support, arrears and college tutition payments. Ryan is not only very personalable but he is also intelligent, precise and diligent. This was a difficult process to go through but with Ryan by my side I never felt alone. He was and is still always available with kindness and understanding. I had gone through the court system so many times before but with Ryan I was finally able to settle things up in my favor. I cannot say enough about him and would highly recommend him over and over again.

Far Exceeded my Expectations
My Initial contact with Ryan was a 30 minute phone consultation. I never felt rushed or pressured to get off the phone with Ryan. I subsequently set up a free 30 minute consultation, which ran 45 minutes, I hired Ryan at that point. I was sure I was going to Retain his services to handle my Divorce after the initial Phone Consultation. Ryan was thoroughly professional but with a side of compassion, caring and understanding. Ryan was reachable before and after normal business hours. He was fully versed in all aspects of the law. He never left any question unanswered and explained everything until he was sure I was completely satisfied and totally understood his answer. From the time I hired Ryan till I had a signed Stipulation in Hand took only seven months. I was expecting a long and drawn out process just based on the long length of my marriage. I consider Ryan the best of the best. I would and have already recommended him to others.

Ryan was very supportive, helpful and informative. I originally filed in 2015 and cancelled proceedings to try reconciliation. I filed again in 2016 and Ryan helped me through all the steps and paperwork with information on what to expect.

Excellent Attorney
Ryan helped me get a judgment from my ex-husband who was refusing to pay for my child's college expenses. He was very supportive and professional in court. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need. Even years later when I had a question he was available to me.

Legal Counsel at it's Best!
Having to go through a divorce is the worst thing I ever had to go through. After all the emotional turmoil the last thing I wanted to do is find a lawyer. I had my doubts that I would find anyone I would be comfortable with or trust enough to help me make incredibly important legal decisions. Then I met Ryan. From our very first meeting he put me at ease. He took his time to explain the process and all I was going to have to encounter. Ryan has a calm and inviting demeanor. He also has a great sense of humor. Ryan listened intently to my situation and demonstrated genuine sympathy. I immediately knew I was more than just a case to him. He dedicated a great deal of time advising me of my options and rights. He was patient with me when translating legal terms into layman's terms. Ryan went above and beyond to create alternate legal options when my situation did not fit the normal process. As a result of his counsel, I always felt confident in the decisions I made. The divorce battle was difficult to fight, however, in the end I was extremely satisfied with the result. I could not have pulled through it without Ryan. Thank you for everything! Warmly, Ana

A Tough Battle
Ryan is very knowledgeable with the divorce process. He had my best interest in mind during a very tough, drawn out divorce process. He was persistent with opposing council and pushing things along. I would definitely recommend his services. He is a class act and true professional.

Above and Beyond Expectations
During the process of dealing with a very difficult divorce he kept focused on what was in my best interest. Ryan is very competent lawyer and is genuinely interested in helping his clients. He has the ability to be judicious in the application of the law and considers the effect upon peoples lives, so his heartfelt convictions keep the process balanced. After the agreement was reached Ryan continues to offer help, and has become more than my lawyer, I consider him my friend.

Divorce Lawyer
When looking for a divorce lawyer, I wanted someone who I felt confident in and trusted. Someone who would take the time to explain all the legal terms, and answer all the questions I had. Ryan always made me feel like I was taking to a friend, who had my back, in a situation where I felt very vulnerable. I would highly recommend him!

Divorce
Ryan was amazing in a very sensitive situation for myself. His guidance and professionalism is an asset that I would highly recommend to everyone. He was clear and understanding from the beginning to the end. I almost hated for it all to be over because he was a pleasure to have by my side. His demeanor was brilliant and always one step ahead of the opposition. Everyone at the firm, from the receptionist to the lawyers were sensitive to the nature of my proceedings. I truly thank them all!

Child Custody/Child Support
Ryan was the attorney for my support and custody hearing. He was fantastic, patient, and knowledgable. Ryan's colors really fly with mediation, compromise, while still being stern and in the best interest for child and client. I have reached out to Ryan at all hours, days, court dates, with all calls/meeting returned in a timely fashion. I will be utilizing Ryan for all future court appearances and attorney related events.

Amazing caring professional!!!!! Highly recommend!!!
Going into this whole experience I was extremely anxious and worried about choosing a lawyer and had no idea how to even go about selecting the right one. After meeting with quite a few and leaving even more unsettled, I met with Ryan and immediately my doubts were put to rest. From the beginning, Ryan eased any anxieties I was feeling about the entire divorce process. He made an overwhelming process seem quite simple and painless as each step of the way he was very informative and patiently guided us through it. Put simply, Ryan "cares". I didn't want to be another "case" being pushed through the court and Ryan made that possible. He stayed on top of everything and made sure to address any concerns I had as well as kept me in the loop. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a dedicated, caring professional!!
