Ryan has dedicated his entire legal career to representing people injured by foodborne illness. His passion is holding food producers accountable when they poison their customers. His unending goal is to make the food we eat safer.
Ryan has a decade’s worth of experience in foodborne illness litigation. He has represented people in every major foodborne illness outbreak during that time.
Ryan gravitated to the science-driven foodborne illness practice in part because he comes from a medical family. His sister is a neonatologist at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, his mother is a former nurse practitioner and his father is an infectious disease epidemiologist. He has been around foodborne illness outbreak investigations since before he could walk.
“You’ll get the experience you deserve. It is important to know the lawyer you hire to represent you in a foodborne illness case has done these cases before and knows what it takes to win. There isn’t a more experienced foodborne illness law firm in America than OFT. Experience counts, however, the most rewarding part of my job is connecting with my clients. When you hire OFT we will be working together to get the best possible outcome by any means necessary. Every case is personal to me. You are trusting me with your case, and I take that responsibility seriously. You will be able to contact me at all hours of the day via email, text, or phone with any questions or concerns you might have. We work for you, and will never forget that.”
Ryan has a baseball-obsessed four-year-old son named Ethan and a one-year-old daughter named Greta. He met his amazing wife Monica at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she was a soccer player for the Badgers. When Ryan is not working, you can often find him in his pumpkin patch growing giant pumpkins. He recently grew a nearly 1,000 pound pumpkin. You can read more about his hobby here.
