Ryan Claridge Attorney Arizona

Ryan is originally from Vancouver, Canada, and has been a lifelong ice hockey player. In his years as an attorney, he has found that family law is his passion and preference because it is the most complex area of law. With family law, an attorney must understand complex business and financial matters as well as the intense and high-stakes issues surrounding child custody, addiction, domestic violence, and more. Ryan Claridge wanted to be an attorney since he was in middle school. He has always been passionate about helping others and using his intellect to solve diverse problems, so a career in the legal field seemed like a natural choice for him.

Ryan is passionate about helping people during difficult times in their lives. His calm demeanor, excellent communication skills, and experience in family law make him a powerful advocate for his clients. Ryan excels at alleviating his client’s fears and explaining the best course of action so his clients are prepared and empowered to make the best choices for their cases.

Coupling the complexities of a family law case with the many areas of law a good family law attorney must understand has propelled Ryan to become an effective advocate for his clients. His favorite cases generally start with many unresolved and complicated issues. As he untangles the case to find common ground on a single issue, he uses that momentum to push the opposing party to a favorable settlement for his clients. When that isn’t possible, Ryan prepares for court. All too often the opposing attorney or opposing party may mistake his dry, calm communication in settlement negotiations as a sign of weakness. In court, Ryan becomes a character out of A Few Good Men and offers impassioned and persuasive arguments on behalf of clients.


Ryan is married and the father of 4 young, children. In their short lives, both daughters have experienced significant health scares and one has required ongoing therapy and special needs services. Finding out that a child is struggling has a way of being both debilitating and clarifying at the same time. Ryan made the decision to close his own practice in order to have more time to support his family. He looked for a firm that had the technological infrastructure to allow him remote and flexible work and a team to support him as an attorney while he balanced the challenges of parenting special needs children and a career.

His background makes him especially adept at handling cases when special needs children exist. Many judges may not understand the implications of children’s special needs and how that relates to a parenting plan and legal decision-making. Ryan can educate the judge to advocate for the client on behalf of the children in the case.

Ryan has been married for 7 years and has 4 children who are ages 6, 3, and 9-month-old twins. He enjoys hockey, boxing, fitness, jogging, hiking, and swimming. Ryan loves spending time with his family and supporting his children in their various activities. He and his family are active members of Scottsdale Bible Church and enjoy participating in church service projects. They volunteer regularly at Feed My Starving Children. His wife is also an attorney and the two have balanced the rigors of balancing career and children in a true partnership. Ryan attends Scottsdale Bible Church, where he is an active member and participates in a regular Men’s Group. He is a wonderful addition to Jensen Family Law and an advocate for his clients.

Ryan is a very knowledgeable and professional attorney. Ryan is honest and is very good at communication. I have battled in the family courts for a long time and Ryan had guided me every step of the way. He represents what the family court attorney should be. I cannot stress the fact that Ryan is honest, articulate, and always looking to do the right thing. Something I think is missing in Family court.” -Google User 2018
