I first meet with Ryan for a consult a year before deciding to file for divorce. The advice he gave during that first meeting and every meeting since turned out to be priceless. Even the advice i didn't take. I had a complex/tough case and was amazed at what he was able to accomplish. Not only was he able to get emergency temporary change of custody orders approved while the judge in our case was out of town, he was accurate when setting my expectations as to what can and can't be done. After witnessing him in court arguing on my behalf against other very competent attorneys, I can attest to his ability to get results in such a way that I doubt there would have been any other attorney that would have been able to get as good or a better result. The judge in our case even took time to thank him for his procedural excellence and mentioned that he was the first person to accurately present using the correct procedure. I didn't understand it all but the judge made a big deal and praised him for it. My family was blessed to have had him on our side and i will be grateful to him for years to come.

Fantastic Attorney
Ryan was fantastic, nothing but professional and fair. He gives it to you straight without all the fluff and extras you don't need. Would hire again in a second and highly recommend to anyone needing an attorney in this area.

Ryan his team are fantastic!
Ryan represented me in my divorce case. He, and his team are responsive, knowledgeable, and will always work to make sure you understand everything. I highly recommend them. Ryan presents well in a court room and the staff at the court house seem to have a high level of respect for him. I would strongly encourage you to hire Ryan & his team for your divorce case.

Professional, thorough, and caring
I hired Ryan to handle my divorce. It was the best move I ever made. He walked me through everything, step by step, no surprises, and even talked bluntly when needed. He has an uncanny ability to both fully serve your interests but also help you understand the other side of the case so you (and he) can make informed decisions. Divorce is no fun for anyone, but you might as well have the best attorney around to help you navigate the craziness.

Very Pleased!
Mr. Hare represented me in a recent divorce. I was referred to Ryan by a good friend of mine that said he was "THE BEST!" I was VERY impressed with Ryan at every juncture. I am a business owner and he was very well versed at dealing with the complicated matter of involving a business in the divorce. He was to the point and gave me very sound advice. I will refer others to Ryan knowing they will be dealing with one of the best!

Very Pleased
J. Ryan Hare represented me for a DUI case. He saved my license, and I was very pleased with his responsiveness. He is always available through phone and email. I highly recommend him.

Lack of Interest
Mr. Hare helped me to sign the worst agreement of my entire life. He allowed the other attorney to write the agreement, then didn't review it fully for adverse content. His mistake eventually cost me dearly. He talks a good game and has a blunt personality that makes it seem as though he'll do a great job of representing you. Sadly, this just isn't the case.
