Ryan is a member in Bousquet Holstein’s litigation group. He appears regularly in Onondaga, Oswego, Madison, Jefferson, and Oneida Counties. Ryan has a diverse practice that concentrates on the firm’s own areas of expertise. He represents institutional and individual clients in commercial matters; matters involving real property including landlord/tenant; construction litigation; labor and employment litigation and investigation; personal injury; and elder law / guardianship matters.
Ryan also provides legal counsel as part of the firm’s matrimonial and family law practice. He is particularly interested in disputes relating to equitable distribution of small business or sophisticated investment / retirement assets, as well as jurisdictional / choice of law / forum disputes. He has also successfully represented members of non-conventional family structures in matrimonial and child custody disputes.
Since joining the firm in 2014, Ryan has developed a reputation for his attentive, practical, result-oriented approach to dispute resolution. A trial is economically and emotionally draining and the reality is that most civil litigations settle without one. But every matter, from its earliest stages, must be approached with the same level of care and attention as though it will see the courtroom. The client is well-informed and engaged at every step of the process, and enjoys capable, cost-effective representation that is carefully tailored to his or her own unique needs.
Ryan received his undergraduate degree from Syracuse University (magna cum laude) and graduated from Albany Law School (summa cum laude), where he served as a senior editor with the Albany Law Review. Before coming to Bousquet Holstein, Ryan was a commercial litigation associate with Seward & Kissel LLP in lower Manhattan.
Ryan serves on the board of directors for the McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center, an organization devoted to ending child abuse in our community. He continues to be active in the Syracuse University community, where he serves on the board of directors for the Martin J. Whitman School of Management Alumni Club of Central New York. Since moving to Syracuse, Ryan has also donated over one hundred hours of pro bono legal time to local individuals and institutions.
