Born and raised in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon, Ryan spent 20 years in California where he studied political science as an undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and earned his law degree from California Western School of Law in San Diego. His five years of practicing law in California involved business, estate, and real property matters, as well as personal injury and criminal defense. He has worked for firms large and small in addition to running his own solo practice. Ryan has eagerly returned to the Pacific Northwest and joined us at Burns Law, PLLC. In his free time, he is likely to be found on the water, trails, or his bicycle when he's not joining friends for game night.
