Attorney Profile

Suzanne Ryan is an accomplished family law attorney who has helped numerous clients in Rockville, Maryland, and the surrounding region as they navigate through divorce, child support, custody, and other difficult issues. As an associate at Avery & Upton, Ms. Ryan is dedicated to providing quality service to clients in Montgomery County and the Greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Ms. Ryan's background and experiences have provided her with the skills necessary to successfully guide clients through the often conflict-filled divorce process. She has degrees in communication studies and international communication and received her law degree from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Ryan worked extensively in education. For many years, she worked for a literacy organization, where she campaigned to provide books for disadvantaged children. She also taught middle school students in inner-city Baltimore and helped organize leadership workshops for high school students on a national level. Her commitment to children continues in her legal practice, and she often represents minors before the court.

Ms. Ryan also brings to her legal career a history of developing alternative dispute resolution techniques. While working for Washington, D.C., schools, she educated teachers, students and school officials about conflict resolution topics such as mediation and anger management. She used these skills in a variety of situations, including student-teacher conflicts and gang-related disputes. As a family law attorney, she continues to emphasize negotiation, mediation and collaborative methods for resolving disputes, but when litigation proves necessary, she fights hard for her clients.

Along with her commitment to her clients and children involved in family conflicts, Ms. Ryan is involved in several professional and community organizations.
