About Ryan

Ryan joined the Toxic Torts Section of Beasley Allen in October 2011. Since then, his practice has concentrated primarily on the BP Oil Spill litigation, where he represents businesses, commercial fishermen, and individuals who suffered injuries resulting from exposure to oil and dispersants.

Notable Cases

Ryan is currently assisting local governments in addressing harms posed by the nation’s opioid epidemic.  He also represents water systems against companies alleged to have polluted their water supply with perfluorinated chemicals. In addition, he investigates cases where individuals have suffered severe lung injuries either while on the job or in other capacities. These injuries are wide-ranging and can affect anyone, as the lungs are the only internal organ constantly exposed to the outside environment.

Previously, he was part of the section’s team that represented trucking businesses in the Hot Fuel multi-district litigation against oil companies which eventually resulted in over $20 million in settlements.

Professional Associations

Ryan is a member of the Montgomery County Association for Justice, Montgomery County Bar Association, the Alabama State Bar Young Lawyer’s Section and the Alabama Association for Justice.


Ryan is originally from Birmingham, Alabama. He received his undergraduate degree from Birmingham-Southern College in 2008, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude with a major in political science and minor in Spanish. He obtained his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2011.

During law school, he worked in the Civil Law Clinic representing individuals in various civil litigation matters. He has also served as a judicial intern for Jefferson County Civil Circuit Judge Michael Graffeo and as a law clerk for the firm Baxley, Dillard, McKnight, James & McElroy in Birmingham.
