Ian Ridgeway, Esq.
Workers Compensation Lawyer
I started my BA as a University of British Columbia – Vancouver student, studying at the International Study Centre in Sussex, England. Eventually, I transferred to SUNY Albany where I earned my BA in Political Science (International Relations). I then earned a MA in International Affairs from CUNY Brooklyn College. I earned my JD from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University (formerly Pace Law School) in White Plains, NY. I also earned an LLM in International and European Business Law from the ICADE School of Law at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid, Spain.
Since I was a child, I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. Violent conflict arises when the rule of law and the system that maintains order disintegrates. As a result of the importance of law, I saw lawyers as the ultimate peacekeepers in society. My greatest accomplishment as an attorney, which I always aim to be my next accomplishment, is helping people protect their rights as I help them navigate a confusing and occasionally overwhelming system.

I love that I can help people when they need it most.
I tackle every case by remembering how important it is to each client. The injuries that they suffer and the strain that they are going through are oftentimes wholly encompassing, affecting nearly every part of their lives. That is why I aim to tackle each case with the greatest care.
