Ryan graduated Magna Cum Laude from New England School of Law in Boston, where he worked as a technical editor on the New England Law Review and completed an internship in the legal department at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.
After law school, he wanted to experience a different part of the country, so Ryan moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. He worked as an associate attorney at the Albuquerque office of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, LLP from 2016 to 2020. While in that role, he worked on cases involving construction defects, property disputes, personal injury, and product defects, defending individuals, corporations, and insurance companies. Ryan obtained summary judgment in several cases in state and federal district court. In two of those cases, he successfully defended an appeal by the plaintiff to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, resulting in the Court of Appeals affirming the grant of summary judgment.
Outside of work, Ryan loves to play music and hike with his fiance, Lindsey, and their mini Australian Shepherd, Sammie. He plays keyboards, accordion, and sings in an Albuquerque country band called the High Desert Playboys. They can be found playing live at venues around New Mexico.Telephone: 505.336.5308
