Trusted McKenzie Friend Dan Ryan  
About Dan Ryan:

I have been a McKenzie Friend since 2017 and in that time have supported people through both family and civil court.

I am passionate about persuading people heading towards court that solicitors are not required.

During my career, I have worked and lived all over the world in a number of different industry sectors.  This includes industry where protocols and processes were critical so ensuring compliance with the family and civil court regime is one of my strengths.

I ask my clients to regard court as a mountain and me as a sherpa.  They must climb the mountain themselves but I will guide them.  The advantage we have is that I have climbed it many times before.    

In addition to being a McKenzie Friend I am also a relationship counsellor and own a counselling practice in the East Midlands.  This gives me the people skills to work with clients empathetically and lessen the anxiety and stress along the way. 

As a McKenzie Friend, my relationship with the client is not them and me, it is us.  

I am twice divorced and have a grown-up daughter.

Covering the Courts of: Leicester Derby Birmingham, Northampton, Peterborough, Stoke-On-Trent, Liverpool, Manchester, Wolverhampton

  Mohammed H about McKenzie Friend Dan Ryan

He was very good and helped me get a contact plan with my children. He was very patient with me as I did not understand court system but he stay by my side and keep me calm. Even my ex-wife said she wished she had found Daniel first. When barrister that Daniel booked came to fact find, it was obvious they knew each other very well which helped alot.

  Dan D about McKenzie Friend Dan Ryan

I can't thank Daniel enough for his advice, help and support when things turned messy during my separation around a parenting plan. His services were invaluable when I couldn't afford a solicitor or barrister like my ex-partner, and we got the best possible and most sensible outcome in court, by putting the children first.
