Although I have been trained at some of the largest law firms in the world, I am an entrepreneur at heart.

That’s why I’m passionate about representing businesses, investors, and other entrepreneurs through the full range of legal and business issues from entity formation, capital raising, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and exit.

I also assist those same businesses, investors, and entrepreneurs with other related legal needs, such as estate planning.

When you call my firm, you will speak to me.

Personal attention has no substitute. You won’t be handed off to an army of junior associates or sent through a switchboard.

I will bring my attention and my expertise to your legal issues, whether they are corporate, transactional, small business, estate planning, startup, or other issues.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

As in-house counsel in a startup, I was often consulted on small issues before they became large issues. I am happy to offer non-billable hour based fee models (such as subscription or flat-fee) to help meet your needs on time and on budget.

He went on to obtain his J.D. at NYU, one of the very best law schools in the country.

As a young lawyer, Ryan spent several years as an associate in the corporate departments of two highly-prestigious global mega-firms (top 5 & top 50), where he learned about the “art of the deal” and worked on transactions ranging from small contracts to multi-billion dollar acquisitions. Ryan has also served as General Counsel of a San Antonio-based tech startup founded by two highly successful entrepreneurs which raised over $10 million in private funding.

Ryan volunteers his time as a teacher and mentor with various small business incubators, startup accelerators, and co-working spaces in San Antonio, where he provides guidance to entrepreneurs and small businesses both in the tech sector and beyond.

From time to time, he also teaches workshops and classes with various universities and community colleges around the state, including as part-time faculty of the Alamo Community College District. He is an involved participant in various charitable organizations and activities (such as the BikeMS charity bike ride for Multiple Sclerosis, various pro bono clinics, and the San Antonio Rotary Club).

He is an active member of the San Antonio Texas Exes (UT Alumni Association), the San Antonio Bar Association, and the San Antonio Young Lawyers Association. In addition, Ryan has been admitted to the Texas Bar College, a distinction held by less than 5% of Texas lawyers.
