About Ryen

Learn Ryen’s areas of practice.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page. I'm a Virginia attorney who specializes in the fields of Commercial Law and Intellectual Property Law. I'm also experienced in the fields of Employment Law, Veterans Law, Administrative Law, and Auction Law. 

My typical clients are businesses and executives looking to grow their operations and evaluate their strategic options. I often aid clients in the drafting and interpretation of contracts, resolution of business and IP-related disputes, and development of new company programs.

Outside of work, I love to cook, travel, and read up on pop-cultural theory.

You can reach me at or by phone at .

Smart, Compassionate, Professional Attorney with LGBTQ Competency
Ryen is an excellent attorney. I had a very tangled contract issue for my job as a nonprofit executive, with some pieces that required competency in diversity, equity, and inclusion to untangle. After talking to what seemed like thousands of attorneys in DC, I found Ryen's personal touch and extensive knowledge of employment law to be the right fit. He took my concerns seriously, was incredibly responsive, and gave me honest feedback about how to approach the issue with my Board. We were able to come to a workable solution that has allowed me to move on with my life and make peace with a difficult situation. I appreciated how kind Ryen was while also being knowledgeable and fair. He helped to put my mind at ease during a difficult time. I would highly recommend him to others who might be grappling with similar employment issues -- fair prices, prepared and knowledgeable and didn't take himself too seriously. I cannot express how much it helped me to feel like someone was finally listening and on my side.
