About Ryan

Learn Ryan’s areas of practice.

A LAWYER YOU CAN TRUST. HONORED AS ONE OF THE TOP ATTORNEYS IN NEW YORK STATE.

Injuries caused by a serious accident or employment discrimination have far reaching consequences. Injured victims endure extraordinary pain, lost income, mounting bills and stress that not only causes suffering for the injured victim, but also their family.  I very much enjoy getting justice for my personal injury and wrongfully discharged clients.

My business practice involves counsel in Labor and Employment matters; employments agreements; and, high stakes commercial litigation involving breach of contract matters; noncompete litigation; construction disputes, and other general litigation.   I pride myself on giving my clients the close, personal attention necessary to resolve problems creatively and efficiently, while still maintaining a high level of skill and expertise.

Criminal matters, like personal injury and employment matters, affect the life and liberty of my clients.  I take pride in fighting overzealous prosecutors and demand fairness in all criminal cases. 

Most lawyers actually fear going to trial. Convincing every client into a settlement may be easy and profitable for some lawyers but that is not the way I practice law. While a fair settlement is the preferred method of resolving disputes, I meticulously prepare each case as if it was going to trial, and I am not afraid to bring a case to trial if my opponent is unreasonable. I believe such an approach leads to better results for my clients.

Great attorney
Mr. Finn was extremely empathetic to my situation in my personal injury case.. He made me feel important and that my case mattered. He fought for me when I felt hopeless and helped me gain an excellent recovery. He answered every question I had and always kept in communication. His office was amazing to work with.

When in need of outstanding legal representation..
I contacted Mr Finn this afternoon in need of some clarification over NYS DOL laws and was greeted by he himself over the phone. If that wasn't shocking enough we spent quite a bit of time discussing some concerns of mine and I learned much of what isn't listed on Google's top results for this topic. Mr. Finn was a pleasure to speak with and very knowledgeable. I strongly recommend this highly professional attorney.
