Mr. Weese came highly recommended and I hired him to represent me in a child custody case. His experience, skill and calm demeanor gave me confidence throughout a very tense and emotional trail.
Even though Ryan knew my case would be hard to win he took us on as his client. He is intelligent, professional, great communicator and someone you can trust. I always felt I was Ryan’s only client and he gave us 110% of his time.
In the courtroom Ryan was amazing. He was organized and respectful of everyone in the court room.
We won our custody case and all of our appeals.
Ryan is truly an amazing attorney and one that I will always turn to for legal advice.

Mr. Weese helped me with a divorce/child matter regarding money and college tuition. My ex spouse was extremely difficult to work with and fought the entire time. We tried to settle the case and went through mediation as well. We eventually ended up in court to settle the issue. My experience with Mr. Weese during this difficult time was absolutely wonderful. Mr. Weese is an excellent attorney. Ryan was extremely well prepared for the case. Ryan spent a lot of time with me so that i could prepare as well. Every minuete Mr. Weese spent with me was quality time. We did not waste time or money on unproductive items which I appreciate. Ryan is extremely professional, knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy. Ryan made me feel very confident and comfortable going through a stressful time and process. There is always a little fear in going to court, but Mr. Weese made me personally feel very comfortable and confident. Ryan was honest about the possiblilities of winning or losing the case and I knew what my options were during the entire process. I appreciate his expertise. Ryan is very responsive to all my questions and calls. I know that if I have to go through the process again I will make sure I have Ryan in my corner. I have reccommended Ryan to everyone I know.

I have known Ryan Weese for the better part of two decades both personally and professionally. He is an excellent advocate and a compassionate counselor for his clients. I have and wouldn't hesitate in the future to refer him clients or friends.
