Ryan Segall


Ever since I was a kid, I looked up to my father who practiced law for 45 years. While growing up in Miami, I watched him dedicate his life to becoming the best possible advocate for his clients. Immersed in the legal field at a young age, I developed a growing passion for law.

I started my college career at the University of Texas at Austin, earning a bachelor’s in Journalism, followed by my Juris Doctorate in 2014 from Southern Methodist University. Prior to attending law school I was a financial advisor with Series 7 and 66 licenses, but I still had a strong passion for law. Earning my law degree was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life; I was thrilled to put countless pieces of advice from my father into action. Today, nothing inspires me more than meeting new clients, hearing their stories, and developing strategies which enable them to achieve their visions for the future. With my jury trial experience, I am unafraid to do whatever it takes to fight for my clients.

I believe all family law clients should expect complete transparency; cases will inevitably contain the good, bad, and the ugly. Poor attorneys will conceal challenging realities from their clients. Average attorneys will reveal them, and claim that they are insurmountable. Exceptional attorneys acknowledge challenges, and propose specific, well-reasoned plans of action. I strive to offer exceptional service to my clients each day; out of approximately 110,000 lawyers licensed to practice in Texas, only 860 are board certified in Family Law, and I am proud to be one of them. I look forward to fighting for you and your family.
