Ryan, a Central Florida native, has seen first hand the area grow from sleepy small towns to a thriving economic and cultural center. It is with this community insight that Ryan can understand the people and issues that make up this very special and diverse part of our state. After graduating from Lake Mary High School, Ryan attended the University of Florida receiving a degree in History. After completing his undergraduate degree, he embarked on his study of law at The Mercer University Law School in Macon, Georgia, one of the oldest law schools in America.
Following law school, Ryan choose to return to Seminole County to fulfill his lifelong dream of practicing law in his hometown and, more importantly, protecting the rights of the family, friends, and local community that shaped him into the person he is today. Unlike most private criminal defense attorneys Ryan decided never to work for a State Attorney's Office as he always has wanted to represent the accused and zealously fight for the constitutional rights of an individual when they are arrested, not prosecute them. Ryan will attempt to resolve your case short of trial; however, he is not afraid "to go to the mat" for his clients. Ryan alone has tried in front of a jury more than 30 cases over the past several years, a staggering number. Ryan believes results matter and is proud of the outcomes his hundreds upon hundreds of clients have received.
