Ryan Emery joined the Mackenzie Hughes firm in 2006. He is a member of the firm's litigation and estates department. Ryan focuses his practice in the areas of litigation, estate planning and estate administration.

Ryan assists the litigation department in defending individual, institutional and municipal clients who are involved in various personal injury and civil rights claims and commercial disputes. Ryan focuses primarily in handling issues involving motion practice, appeals and trial preparation. He has successfully defended many cases using motion practice, resulting in substantial litigation cost savings to clients.

In the estate planning area, Ryan represents individuals and couples who need assistance with safeguarding and directing how their assets are distributed for their children and loved ones and appointing preferred guardians for any minor children. Ryan also counsels New York residents who spend time in Florida on changing their domicile to Florida to take advantage of the state's many tax benefits. He also assists adult surviving children with all aspects of estate administration for their deceased Florida domiciliary parents.

Ryan is also knowledgeable in the preparation of Florida and New York wills, powers of attorney, health care proxies (Florida designations of health care surrogate), living wills and revocable trusts. He is also experienced in assisting fiduciaries with simple to complex taxable estates and trusts.

Ryan received a Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, in political science from Syracuse University in 2003. He continued his studies at Albany Law School of Union University and graduated summa cum laude with a Juris Doctorate in 2006. Ryan was also a member of the Albany Law Review and received several academic awards during his time at Albany Law School. He is admitted to practice law in New York and Florida.

Ryan is a former treasurer of Aurora of Central New York, a not-for-profit organization that provides various services to the deaf and blind community. He is also a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association and participates in the pro bono Volunteer Lawyer Project.
