A Finely Tailored Strategy for Each Client

Ryan Besinque, Esq. is a dedicated and experienced divorce lawyer and family law attorney in New York City. Although he prefers to take a more collaborative and communicative approach to provide the least animosity possible, when the occasion calls for it, he has no problem using more aggressive strategies to ensure the best results for his clients. Over his time in practice, he has seen, firsthand, the devastating emotional and financial toll that divorce can have on a family. Consequently, he finely tailors his approach so each client can be thoroughly represented and feel optimistic about the future.

Throughout his career, he has represented hundreds of clients in all facets of divorce, custody, support, and family offense cases throughout  Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and neighboring Westchester county and Nassau county.

He provides a comprehensive set of services, often connecting clients with other experts such as child specialists, mental health professionals, and financial advisors to ensure each client’s complete representation. While he likes to strive for a non-adversarial resolution, he realizes there are times when an aggressive approach is warranted and necessary.
