WHAT WE DO:

MARITAL & FAMILY LAW 


Legal issues that arise within domestic relationships require special care and consideration. The counsel of a qualified attorney can help you avoid confusion and unnecessary heartache and long-lasting regret. Schedule a consultation with RISEN & RYAN to discuss your rights regarding:


DIVORCE  -  CUSTODY  -  TIMESHARING  -  PATERNITY  -  CHILD SUPPORT  -  ALIMONY  -  MILITARY RETIREMENT  -  ADOPTION


BANKRUPTCY  We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for relief under the Bankruptcy Code.


A financial crisis is often the consequence of forces beyond your control. Injury, illness, death, divorce, loss of employment -- tragedy has a way of surprising you. Or, perhaps you have frankly made some regrettable choices. Fortunately, federal law offers relief for debtors facing foreclosure, repossession, garnishment, lawsuits and harassment by creditors. You do not have to face it alone. Contact RISEN & RYAN for a free consultation to determine if one of these options is right for you:

​CHAPTER 7 - Qualification may result in the elimination of some or all of the debt you incurred prior to filing.

 CHAPTER 13 - The court approves a payment plan, based upon your income, and assigns a Trustee to distribute affordable payments to your creditors on your behalf. 

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

If you are facing the loss of your liberty, property or reputation because you are being investigated or charged with a crime, you should seek the advice of an experienced attorney immediately. RISEN & RYAN offers a free initial consultation concerning all criminal matters including:

FELONIES   -   MISDEMEANORS   -   DOMESTIC VIOLENCE   -   DUI   -   DRUG CHARGES
