Great Attorney
Would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for an outstanding divorce attorney. He was extremely through, responsive, candid and understanding. Could not ask for a better attorney to represent my interests and be on top of all the key details.

Professional & Candid
From the beginning of a very challenging divorce, Ryan has always considered the best interest of my children and me. I highly recommend leveraging Ryan - especially if you know that your case is going to be difficult. It is nice knowing that there are still lawyers that have a heart and can empathize with their clients. It is also nice to know that Ryan never steered me in a spiteful direction that could have led to more turmoil in my co-parenting relationship, despite the opposing party attempting to leverage every low-blow possible. Ryan is professional and candid - this proves to be imperative and invaluable when walking into an environment that is otherwise unchartered.

Detailed, Professional and Excellent
Ryan has represented us on two occasions, for a modification and enforcement. During the 14-hour mediation, he remained vigilant, even as the day stretched extremely long. He gives straightforward, honest answers, and has always been a pleasure to work with. Ryan and his assistants are easy to reach, and return calls and emails. In a court setting, he remained diligent, professional, calm and confident. He was able to keep focus on relevant matters, and really highlighted the issues to the judge. Ryan understood our priorities, and represented our interests well.

Glad I chose Ryan
I hired Ryan for my custody case back in November of 2018. I couldn’t be any happier that I did. Ryan won my case for me yesterday in a 1 hour per side jury trial. We were expecting at least three to five hours to present all of our evidence & witnesses but when the opposing counsel stalled in mediation the judge ordered 1 hour per side. I didn’t know how in the world he would pull this off. Every second counted. He allocated his time brilliantly. He was aggressive but showed class. The opposing lawyer has been practicing law longer than Ryan has been alive. I thought that we would be in for a real dogfight in our initial hearing but Ryan just simply outmatched him, and honestly, made it look easy. His opening/closing remarks were astounding. The jury deliberated in 30-40 minutes. He left no doubt in their minds that my child was in better hands with me. I am very thankful for his services & while I hope I never have to use him again, I know where all of my referrals for family law will go. Thanks Ryan!

The best decision I made...
was choosing Ryan to represent me. Ryan listened to me and MY situation and only then started to discuss what my options were. He was always available for questions. When decisions had to be made Ryan offered advice but let me make the choices I needed to make.

Simply the Best !
Ryan was my attorney,and Lisa Gray was his paralegal. They are both remarkable. Few observations that stood out during the trial. Remarkable opening & closing statements, thorough study of evidences/exhibits, very persuasive & convincing to the audience in his arguments, and meticulous preparation. He fought the case with full vigor and honesty, and got me the best outcome possible. I fully recommend him. Below is the summary details of my case: wife committed adultery; i left her, filed for divorce. Wife wanted 100 grands to settle. Case went on for 17 months, ended up in a jury trial. Total legal expense $31K approx. If you are in need of some serious help, please reach out to him. He will get you the best outcome possible for your case. Awesome attorney, and they (Ryan and Lisa) are very nice people !!

Ryan Segall - A Rated attorney in the DFW area
This summer I had an emergency and needed a family law attorney I turned to O’neil And Wysocki Family Law firm and was the best decision I’ve made. Ryan Segall was my attorney and he did everything in his power to help me with any questions I had. This being my first time having to hire an attorney he made it so easy and comfortable. I will most definitely refer anyone to Ryan because I know with his honesty he will not fail to disappoint you with his work ethic. I am so greatful for what Ryan has done for me and my family and I will be forever greatful. Thank you Ryan for your professionalism and your hard work it is greatly appreciated!!!

Ryan will get what you deserve
Ryan is an awesome divorce attorney! There were things I wanted to give up on so my ex and I could just quit fighting and be done with the divorce, but Ryan recommended that I hang tough and fight for what was best for my son and I. Because of his excellent advice, I ended up getting everything I wanted out of the divorce plus double the amount of child support that ex wanted to pay. Ryan always answered emails and phone calls quickly which I really appreciated. I highly recommend Ryan if you are going through a nasty divorce because you will come out on top! My ex even said my lawyer was way better than his and I was the "winner" in the lawyer category :) Thanks so much Ryan!

Would highly recommend!
I was blessed to have Ryan Segall handle my modification case this past year. He is a very knowledgeable attorney and was an asset to have in my corner helping me through the case. From the moment we started discussing the case I felt he was dedicated and truly cared about the outcome. Tremendously wonderful attitude! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I got extremely lucky!
I had no idea how these things worked, and through a friend that sent me to their lawyer, that had to send me to another law office because he did not do Denton County cases, I found Ryan! I was so nervous, and Ryan pin-pointed my main fear and made sure it was taken care of first, which made it clear that he did care about my situation in getting me what I needed. Not only was he fairly priced, he was just amazing. Along with his whole team! Where I was soft and a naive push-over, Ryan stood strong and took up for me knowing I needed him to. I got the idea that Ryan is big on what is "right" and you don't see that a lot these days. It's hard being on the inside and making decisions so it was so great to have someone from the outside you could trust to give their opinion. I will forever be grateful for what Ryan and his team have done for my family!

Very Professional Counsel
We reached out to Ryan’s firm to assist with a case that Tarrant County had jurisdiction over. We reside in Louisiana and we thought this would be a pain just because of the distance; however, Ryan and his team were engaged and accessible from the beginning. Ryan answered every question we had, and he truly “advised” us of the best solution…not just letting us run crazy, spending all kinds of unnecessary money. From the beginning of the case to the closing, we felt comfortable and confident that our case was being handled fairly and that our best interests were represented. We were always aware of the status of our case. The opposing party was difficult, to say the least, and we warned Ryan of this prior to him taking the case. I think even he was surprised at how accurate we were in that description BUT that did not change his level of professionalism, although I am sure his level of patience was often tried and tested. While I hope we NEVER have to use his services again in the future, he will be the first person we call if we should have a Texas Family Court matter to resolve. We are extremely pleased and highly recommend him as an attorney to consider within the Dallas area. Thank you for all that you’ve done in helping us close this chapter in our lives so that we are able to move forward and continue to build our family!

Thanks, will never be enough to express my gratitude
Ryan represented me after my ex husband filed to terminate my parental rights out of the blue. I lived out of state and found him online with some research. Upon taking my case, he was sincere and authentic with me about everything. I never had a question left unanswered, he really made me feel like he was invested and on my team. Everything that was handled on our side was prompt and consice. Even when dealing with constant stalling, excuses, and non compliance from the Ex's team. He nailed my ex to the wall when he was examining him. It was so wonderful to see; it was almost worth all the hassle of going to court in general. I will be forever grateful for his service to my family. Would recommend him to ANYONE being treated unfairly or being bullied by a spouse. It is rare to find someone in this line of work that makes you feel as if they are just as invested in doing what is right for you and your family as you are. He's definitely achieved that. 5*****

Professional & Attentive
From the moment I met with Mr. Segall, I was impressed with his professionalism as well as his ability to pay attention to close details. Mr. Segall has an incredible way of listening and understanding his client's needs. He wrote down everything I mentioned to him during our first consultation and made sure I was up-to-date with the process. He took care of my case very promptly and communicated well with me throughout the entire time. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a humane, professional, attentive, and capable attorney.

great guy overall
Going into a layer's office Is nerve wracking but his office is not that. Ryan is a great whom knows what he's doing. He is very informative and straight forward. I found Ryan at the last minute before my hearing and wished I found him at the beginning. He took control over everything and worked very hard for my case. Extremely recommended.

Best Choice I Made!
No one dreams about getting a divorce/annulment so I hired Ryan late in the process. However, he was still able to handle it all and, in the end, made it a completely easy process. If you have to go through something like this, it might as well be made easy for you. He was able to keep me informed just enough without having to hear all the messy details of what was happening. It was nice to know and feel that I had someone actively looking out for me, while I was able to keep out of the entire thing. I felt safe and that my interests were in the right hands at all times. I never felt that I was getting bad information and knew that he was listening to me the entire time. He kept me informed when and how I wanted along the way and never made me feel uneasy. He is a great attorney! Hire him!
