Ryan is not a legacy lawyer. He was the first person in his family to graduate from a four-year college. He became a lawyer after being injured in a car accident through no fault of his own and experiencing the unconscionable way insurance companies treat victims. He understands that our clients come to us scared, hurt, and confused, and he strives to make the law accessible and to empower our clients throughout the legal process. Every day, Ryan represents individuals against multi-billion dollar corporations that are focused on profits, not people. He fights those corporate interests to get our clients the resolution they need to be made whole.
