Client Comments

"I hired Mr. Ryan's firm to assist me in my capacity as a trustee in a bankruptcy matter (Just For Feet, Inc.). I have worked with Mr. Ryan for the past six years related to a complex commercial litigation case in the Just for Feet, Inc. (JFF) matter. Mr. Ryan was and continues to serve as the lead litigation counsel in the case. His efforts have been outstanding in both legal and strategic areas. His detailed knowledge of the case facts and law has contributed to the outstanding result reached for the estate. The estate has received over $80 million in proceeds from the defendants in the case. Mr. Ryan has demonstrated great effort and fortitude and he has displayed significant legal prowess. Most importantly, Mr. Ryan has succeeded in this matter due to his high level of integrity and professional standards."

"My experience with Mr. William Ryan in the environmental practice area was excellent. He is an intelligent, insightful, experienced negotiator and litigator who listened carefully to my concerns and crafted a strategy that was sensitive to my position, practical, and elegantly competent. He works very hard to efficiently settle a case and then harder still if that is not to be. Mr. Ryan is a superb attorney and a true gentleman."
