Ryan Russell – NJ Family Law Attorney

“I retained Ryan Russell …as my primary legal counsel to represent me on post-divorce alimony negotiations. From day one, Ryan attentively listened to details of my case, responded to my questions, and came up with solutions to my challenges. Ryan is detail-oriented, intelligent, responsive and has a high level of integrity. He has inside court experience as a former judicial law clerk to a Presiding Judge, and keeps himself up-to-date on recent Federal and State tax laws regarding alimony matters. As part of the Weinberger Law Group, he also has at his disposal several peers with expertise in several matters that he also consulted with when additional insight was needed. I strongly recommend Ryan Russell as a very competent and professional divorce and family law attorney.” **
