More About Ryan

Ryan defends clients in the most demanding cases surrounding wrongful death, personal injury, product liability, and more. He handles every case with precision and persistence, devising a legal strategy that is focused on the best outcome for his clients. He has significant experience representing manufacturers, retailers, and contractors — giving him a deep knowledge of these industries. He serves as local and national coordinating counsels in toxic torts and environmental law defending complex, document-intensive litigation matters arising under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA/Superfund), and Minnesota Environmental Response and Liability Act (MERLA). Before enrolling in law school, Ryan worked as an environmental consultant. He uses the industry knowledge gained from that time to further help clients in litigation and regulation matters.

Before joining Haws-KM, he served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Robyn A. Millenacker in the Second Judicial District, Ramsey County, Minnesota. Before that, he received his J.D., cum laude, from the University of St. Thomas School of Law, where he earned multiple awards and served as senior editor for the St. Thomas Law Review.
