I’ve been working with Paul Ryan on a difficult case for over a year and he has been a God-send. He is smart, personable, very down to earth and a fighter. I had two terrible experiences previously with different SD firms, and hiring Paul has been a welcome breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Paul, especially for active duty military and veterans.
Mr. Ryan advice is amazing. He is a friendly and good person.
I highly recommend Mr. Ryan to anyone.
I spoke with Mr. Ryan for about an hour and he was very straightforward and had an excellent plan. He spoke with me in a way where I was able to understand.
Paul is an Excellent Attorney and did a Great job on my Divorce. Everything was handled efficiently and the cost was reasonable. I highly recommend Paul to anyone getting a divorce.
Although I didn’t hire Mr. Ryan as my attorney, his paralegal was prompt in answering my emails and Mr. Ryan spent a half hour talking to me on the phone. He answered my questions in a nice and friendly way. He was very personable and didn’t speak as if he was above me in any way, as some other attorneys I have dealt with have done. He was able to give me the advice I need and I didn’t end up hiring his firm because he was straightforward and honest in telling me that I really didn’t hav… Read more

Mr. Ryan spoke to me in a way I could understand the legal points. He looked at my Post Judgment issue very thoroughly and gave me options. Mine is a case of an omitted asset which I never would have known about if not for Mr. Ryan’s help.
PLEASE! HIRE AN ATTORNEY FOR YOUR DISSOLUTION. I think Mr. Ryan is a good choice. I didn’t and now 5 years later, I’m still dealing with, (practically starting over) with what should have been done 5 years ago.
We were going through a very tough time when my children’s father came back into the picture after being gone for 8 years and during that stressful time, Mr. Ryan became our rock. He was very knowledgeable in every aspect of family law and was able to educate us on what to do next. To make a long story short, Mr. Ryan led us in the right direction, fought for us in court, and helped put a very stressful situation to rest. A very sincere thank you to Mr. Paul Ryan, from our family to yours!
Paul was an excellent lawyer that was very knowledgeable, did a great job preparing me for the process and the day in court. Was on top of everything on that day in court, and did a laudable job of representing me. He and his staff could be a little difficult to get a hold of, but once in contact did a great job of answering all my questions and reassuring me through a difficult custody situation. I would seek his counsel and representation again should I need it.
I screened and called about a dozen attorneys before deciding that I would have Paul help represent me during the course of my child custody case. This was not a decision that I made lightly, as there is little else I cherish on this Earth as much as my child. It was a very dark and uncertain time in my life, but Paul did an excellent job of making me feel like I had someone truly concerned with representing and fighting for me. As a result, I am able to spend even more time with my child; which… Read more
