Responsive and results-oriented, Ryan is a lawyer who helps clients understand and navigate through the following types of legal matters:
Personal injury, product injury and premises liability
Ryan represents the legal interests of people who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and by defective or recalled products. He also represents plaintiffs in premises liability cases and wrongful death actions.
Financial Injury/Consumer Protection
Ryan represents victims who have had their credit ruined or peace of mind violated by harassing debt collectors, robo calls, predatory lending, vehicle repossessions, consumer fraud, data breaches and other consumer protection matters.
