My name is Bill Ryan and I’m a trial attorney here at the firm. I’ve been doing this for approximately 40 years and I’ve been a partner here since 2008. My parents immigrated from Ireland when I was very young and the only thing that was a given in our family was that we were all going to college. We were going to make something of ourselves with the education that my parents were unfortunately not able to get. It was while I was in college taking courses in Pre-Law that I felt that this might be an area that I would want to pursue, so I did that. I went to law school and, as it turns out, when I got out of school I started working for a firm that did the type of work that I’ve been doing for the last 40 years. The variety of the work that I do and not knowing what’s going to happen from day to day after I wake up is the exciting part of the job that has kept me going this long.
