Detail oriented
He took the time to understand the situation. Very direct, he didn't beat around the bush. I've only had consultation with him, it lasted a couple days. I appreciated the time he invested in such a quick matter and how detail oriented he was. When I need anymore legal advice, I'm definitely going to him.

Ryan is an excellent lawyer
If you are looking for someone to help you with child custody Ryan is an amazing lawyer. Highly recommend, punctual, fair, tons of experience and very easy to work with. He is a 10/10 lawyer. Would recommend him to anyone, he makes what seems to be the impossible possible. I've consulted 3 lawyers before I decided to go with Ryan and it was one of the best decisions I have made. He was recommended my multiple lawyers and family friends. It was very hard looking through reviews and making a decision on who to go with. I made the right one and went with Ryan. He is your 5 stars, 10/10 and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a family law lawyer.

Excellent attorney
Ryan has been in the legal practice for almost 30 years. During that time, he has honed his skills to perfection. As a colleague and not a client, Ryan has demonstrated a high level of professionalism, knowledge about family law and great tenacity. I have called upon Ryan on many instances to help me out and he has always been responsive, timely and devoted to getting the job done the right way. Ryan is also very diplomatic and a skilled negotiator.
