The Ryan name is well known in the legal community on the Central Coast – and with good reason. Tony and his family have been serving the local community for many years and Tony is committed to continuing this rewarding legacy.

Tony initially dabbled in teaching as a possible career path after completing high school – he remains a proud member of the Central Coast Grammar School alumni to this day – and obtained his necessary tertiary qualification. Then a lengthy trip to the depths of South America somehow made him realise what he had been missing out on – the beautiful practice of law. While many consider it dull and uninteresting, Tony is passionate about it. He returned to Australia and commenced his Bachelor of Laws and then forgot to stop studying. He now has a Master of Commercial Laws, Master of Applied Laws (Wills & Estates) and is currently completing another Master of Applied Laws.

Since first graduating, Tony has worked in this practice and trained under his father, John Ryan, who has been acting for clients on the Central Coast for over 40 years and was NSW’s longest serving Arbitrator. Tony couldn’t have wished for a better mentor and his abilities as a lawyer are a testament to that. Tony specialises in property and commercial work and has a particular passion and aptitude for Wills and estates.

Tony is an outstanding basketball player, having played since the age of five. He still plays with his father at Terrigal Basketball Stadium in a team founded by his father in the 1980s. Tony is an avid aviator and has recently attained his Recreational Pilot’s License. Tony can often be seen cruising the skies above our beautiful coastline or navigating his way around the State. Surfing has been a constant in his life, and he’ll duck out to quickly “hang ten” when time allows. Recently, Tony has taken a keen interest in personal training and is a bit of a fitness fanatic. He loves his early morning gym or yoga sessions. 

If you ask him, though, there’s nothing in this world he enjoys more than spending time with his wonderful young son.
