About Me

Ryan B. Magnus, Partner 


Born and raised in Walhalla, North Dakota, Ryan began the practice of law in Cleveland, OH in 1997 as a judicial law clerk and later as litigator and in-house counsel to an internet startup company.  After moving to Minnesota, Ryan focused his practice in court room work as a prosecutor, family law litigator, and personal injury attorney.  Ryan travels the State of Minnesota to litigate complex civil commitment, criminal, family law, and personal injury matters.  Ryan became a partner at the law firm of Jones and Magnus in 2008.  He is an active member of Messiah Lutheran Church (ELCA) where he and his wife lead the worship band.  Ryan resides in Lake Crystal with his wife and son.
