Ryan was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Richmond’s Far West End (Henrico County, Virginia). He earned his B.A. from Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. After several years of living and working abroad in London, England and Tokyo, Japan, he returned to the United States to pursue a career as an attorney. Mr. Young earned a J.D. Degree from Hofstra University School of Law in Hempstead, New York. He first opened his practice in Fairfax County, Virginia. However, he and his wife decided to move the Richmond metro area to be closer to family and because they thoroughly enjoy the quality of life in the area. In particular, they enjoy the many parks and outdoor activities.

Helpful, understanding, competent
Ryan took on a complicated case that involved claimants in a different different country, and where much of the documentation was in Spanish. He was helpful, patient, and ultimately did exactly what was needed to ensure that we won and that justice was served. I would recommend him without reservations.

Dedication
I am pleased to write an review about Mr. Ryan Young. He is a great lawyer , very professional, dedicated , honest and patient. He communicates very clearly and openly about the process. In his bio he stated he has the qualifications, degrees and licenses to be a guardian litem and has work disability cases. That right there sold me , because that not only did it show me his diverse qualifications, it showed where his heart is. I am very thankful to have chosen Mr. Young. His dedication to help clients like me get guardianship for my son who has Fragile X is a blessing.

Ryan Young
Ryan Young is an outstanding brilliant attorney. He represented me in a difficult family trust situation between 3 siblings. Ryan is extremely professional, tenacious, and a great strategist demonstrated by his successful winning of my case. He has a sincere, caring attitude which is so rare these days. I cannot recommend Ryan with any higher praise- he is the best.

Great estate attorney.
Very nice, friendly, understanding, efficient and tried to keep costs down by including me in reviewing paperwork, hospital records and allowing me to be the courier. He righted a big wrong in an estate settlement and I came out ahead.

state to state
My wife and I hired Mr. Young to handle us becoming guardianship for my brother. The problem was he was coming from RI to Va. Each state had their own laws. He contacted the lawyer that handled the other state and managed to streamline the process for the state that I currently lived in. They kept me informed throughout the process and than followed up with the state that my brother was come from to close that issue. He kept it easy for my brother, wife, and myself. It was extremely nice that I didn't have to run around getting files since I work in Md.

Well done Ryan!
Ryan represented me in a fairly small (less than $20K) contract dispute. He was prompt, competent, objective and offered great advice while trusting me to make the right decisions. I would enthusiastically recommend him to someone in a similar situation.

Ryan Young provides professional personalized legal services
We needed to have our wills done, along with Power of Attorney documents and Advanced Directives. Ryan promptly returned our call and provided us with a detailed questionnaire to gather information which formed the initial framework of our documents. Since we lived out of the area, Ryan met with us in a conference call to review the data and ask questions to customize our wills. He was patient, explained all the legal terms, answered our questions, and made recommendations for our circumstances. His fees were clear and reasonable. We appreciated the pleasant and professional experience Ryan and his paralegal Rebecca created for us, and would highly recommend him to others.

Very professional!
I am starting a small business and enlisted Ryan to review my contracts and to advise me on some business issues. He was courteous and professional in person, and his edits were prompt. I was impressed with his responsiveness and find his prices to be very reasonable. Additionally, he was able to provide me with contacts for insurance coverage. I highly recommend Ryan and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Smooth Process during a tough time
Ryan, consistently, updated me on the progress of acquiring guardianship and conservatorship. From the start of the process, I felt comfortable that all would go smoothly, and everything did go as planned. I would recommend him to anyone, for these sorts of matters.

Business Transition
In 2013 I relocated my family from Los Angeles, CA to Richmond, VA leaving behind a business that I had started several years prior. Originally I had planned to run my company remotely, however, a year later I realized that it no longer made sense for me to be investing time and energy into a business that I couldn’t have a local presence in. I decided that it was time to transfer ownership to my business partner, but I wasn’t really sure how to go about it or even what that process would look like. Enter Ryan. Not only did he draft up the required contracts but he was indispensable in helping me figure out what kind of options I had available. His knowledge and experience helped me avoid the pitfalls that might have occurred otherwise. With his help, I successfully transitioned out of the company without a lot of headaches or complications. I would absolutely recommend Ryan and will continue to use his services in the future.

Help with Legal Letter
When I faced a false accusation that publically slandered my good name, Ryan Young helped me send a Cease and Desist letter to warn the offending indivdual that there would be repercussions if the false allegations were not stopped. His concern for my welfare and quick action were of great help to me.

Contracts and Real Estate Issues
Ryan Young is a wonderful lawyer. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. He was always quick to respond to our questions and kept us informed. He was quick to act on our contracts and real estate issues. We are extremely happy and grateful for his excellent service!

Eager, honest, and extremely kind. Very professional.
I recently needed the expert advice and counsel of an attorney. I contacted the Fairfax Bar Association and they highly recommended Mr. Young. They set up an appointment for a consultation with him for the very next day, which was remarkable in and of itself. Mr. Young treated me with extreme kindness and dignity and swore to do everything in his power to defend me in a very uncomfortable situation. His retainer was very fair, and he immediately set about researching and tackling the issue I was having. Within a month I had a very positive outcome, thanks to the steadfast and relentlessness pursuit of justice by Mr. Young on my behalf. I very highly recommend him for any legal needs you may have.

Contractor's license
Ryan was willing to take the case on short notice. He was professional and ultimately able to help me secure my license. His assistant Rebecca was attentive and returned phone calls promptly. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for personalized attention from a small firm to handle their legal matters.
