Why Ryan: Ryan is the type of lawyer who will think about your family law matter day and night. He is full of creative energy and relatable in many respects. Once retained, Ryan will come up with different predictions and scenarios for your case. He will challenge you, seeking out potential weaknesses and factoring those in. Next, Ryan will tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of your matter, and he will collaboratively come up with a solution to resolve it (e.g. a legal plan of action).

Other reasons for why people look for Ryan’s help and assistance, with respect to their family law matter, are as follows:

Ryan’s Long-Term Strategies: Ryan does not get caught up in his client’s drama or the other side’s drama. As soon as he gets the facts of your case, he begins building a picture, an image, a story of you. One that will find itself in front of a mediator, the other lawyer or the judge. The way he sculpts your matter makes sure that no matter what angle you are looked at from, you are always protected.

Ryan’s is Passionate & Zealous about the practice of Family Law: Ryan is the type of lawyer that is constantly reading up on the latest family law cases out of our courts or changes being discussed and implemented in the practice of family law. He also knows the latest trends in family law from regularly attending a diverse array of extra-curricular programs, activities, and presentations, where he also refines his courtroom skills, along with his skills of negotiation, mediation, collaborative practice, and trial advocacy.

Ryan is committed to Advocating for his clients: Ryan believes great advocacy is much like a great theatrical performance. The way a lawyer talks, the tone of voice, focus, conciseness, the story, the climax and the outcomes are all things that are necessary for winning a case in court. To this end, Ryan present’s his client’s matters in a concise, clear, and confident manner.

Ryan enjoys Problem Solving: Much like an Eagle soaring high in the sky, Ryan looks at problems from 100 feet above and not from the ground. When Ryan does that, he looks to see the bigger picture, and then define the goals of his clients and the opposing side. Through this process of problem solving, Ryan is looks to come up with solutions that are pragmatic, creative (when necessary), cost-effective, and timely.

Generally speaking, Ryan’s problem-solving skills are a major asset for when he looks to advance his client’s legal plan of action forward, because he recognizes that family law matters are often the most emotionally challenging time in a client’s life. As a result, Ryan strongly believes in balancing an aggressive and zealous approach when a client’s rights are at stake with a cooperative and respectful attitude in order to avoid unnecessary disputes or costly delays.
