What People are Saying

A Better Life - Katherine Ryan is a knowledgeable, informative and supportive individual. She is honest and lays reality out on the table, therefore never misleading. She always had the child’s (my daughter’s) best interest in hand and she was my advocate at the same time. Because of Kate Ryan I am a father who now has my rights protected which in turn has allowed me to foster a more involved and pro active relationship with my daughter. Over the past 3 years I have had more accomplished with Ms. Ryan that in the first 5 years of my daughter’s life with other various lawyers.

Outstanding!! Kate was recommended to me by a work colleague, but frankly I would have hired her even without word-of-mouth. In our first meeting, I was impressed with Kate’s professionalism, clear expertise and knowledge of this legal area, but also her ability to personally connect and appreciate the emotional complexities and decisions involved. From there forward, Kate was always professional, answered my calls and emails promptly, and fought hard for my children and myself. She was always one step ahead of my ex husband’s attorney, and that’s what sets Kate and her firm on a different level. Kate was able to have my difficult case finalized within a year, and hard to achieve that. I would highly recommend Kate Ryan to anyone who is in need of a matrimonial/divorce/family lawyer.

Katherine was very professional, ethical, compassionate, knowledgeable and dedicated. I would recommend her to anyone. She handled my bad divorce and made it as easy as possible for me. I couldn’t ask for a better lawyer!

Phenominal Attorney. Ms. Ryan represented me during the course of my divorce and was professional, knowledgeable and dedicated every step of the way. She always had my personal interests at hand and and truly acted in a way that showed she knew what issues were important to me. Ms. Ryan repeatedly went above and beyond, always getting back to me in a timely manner with solid information and a well-thought out course of action. I would undoubtedly use her again as her superior competency put my mind at ease. Ms. Ryan truly is an asset to her team and certainly made the harrowing divorce experience as painless as possible.

It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have worked with Kate as my divorce and custody attorney. Her insightful preparation and development of my case has turned a tragic and terrifying event in my life, into a situation in which I had control and peace of mind.

For the year prior to hiring Kate, I had been working with an attorney from another firm, and felt overwhelmed that no progress had been made, especially considering that my daughters safety was a concern. After an incident that led to a police officer advising me that I should find another attorney, to secure me with better legal rights in which to protect my daughter, a friend recommended me to Kate. I spoke to Kate that night over the phone, and was in her office the following evening for my consultation. I learned more about what my legal options were during that consultation than I had learned the in my entire year with my previous attorney, through my research, and through consultations with other attorneys. Her knowledge in custody law was so extensive that for the first time since my divorce had begun, I felt hope that my divorce would finally come to an end, that my daughter and I would be protected, and I felt confidence because I had a strong, no-nonsense attorney in my corner.

Kate showed great empathy for my situation. Realizing that I was a recently single, struggling mother, she made accommodations to meet with me around my work schedule. She provided me with all my options and a realistic overview of possible outcomes, upfront, so that I could make an informed decision on which course of action to take, and move forward without wasting time. We were in front of a judge within the week, with a solid case, and I got more out of Kate’s legal services than I could have ever imagined or hoped for.

I really appreciate her stepping up and getting me to a resolution and would be happy to offer her my highest recommendation.
