Biography

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.

In addition to practicing law, Ryan has maintained the ABA Top 100 blog A Connecticut Law Blog for over ten years. He has written more than 1,000 posts, but the one he is most asked about concerns whether Susan Bysiewicz was qualified under the Connecticut General Statutes to run for Attorney General in 2010. This post set off a political storm that ended with Ms. Bysiewicz asking the Connecticut Supreme Court for a resolution of the matter. The Court adopted some of Ryan’s reasoning and determined that she was not qualified for the office she sought.

When Ryan is not blogging or working hard to build the most client-centered personal injury firm in the state, he enjoys following the Red Sox, strength training, listening to Pearl Jam, reading, and spending time with his family outdoors.

Education

Ryan received his Bachelor of Arts from Framingham State University and his Juris Doctor from Western New England University.
