About Ryan

Learn Ryan’s areas of practice.

Practice area

Ryan, a Central Florida native, has seen first hand the area grow from sleepy small towns to a thriving economic and cultural center. It is with this community insight that Ryan can understand the people and issues that make up this very special and diverse part of our state. After graduating from Lake Mary High School, Ryan attended the University of Florida receiving a degree in History. After completing his undergraduate degree, he embarked on his study of law at The Mercer University Law School in Macon, Georgia, one of the oldest law schools in America.

Following law school, Ryan choose to return to Seminole County to fulfill his lifelong dream of practicing law in his hometown and, more importantly, protecting the rights of the family, friends, and local community that shaped him into the person he is today. Unlike most private criminal defense attorneys Ryan decided never to work for a State Attorney's Office as he always has wanted to represent the accused and zealously fight for the constitutional rights of an individual when they are arrested, not prosecute them. Ryan is not afraid "to go to the mat" for his clients, in the past year alone Ryan has taken more than a dozen cases to jury trial, probably more than any other private attorney in the area. On the weekends Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and Great Dane, Norman.

Don't pick anyone else
I am in the pretrial stage for an alledged felony. Things are tense to say the least. I have done everything Ryan has told me not because I am angry. He hasn't quit me yet. Out of his patience alone, not only his skill set, I would recommend not choosing anyone but Ryan Yadav for your case.

There is no word I can think of to express my deepest gratitude that we were fortunate enough to come across Ryan Yadav, the very best attorney we have ever known, with outstanding knowledge of the law. He immediately puts one at ease and truly cares about his clients and their families. He treated us with kindness when we needed it most. If you ever need a lawyer, he is THE VERY BEST you could ever hope for. His paralegal, Kiana, is a treasure. BH

Thanks Ryan
I was Acquitted in 2013 because of Ryan on false accusation made by my ex wife I had a choice of pretrial diversion, I refused to admit wrong knowing I was innocent. I never forgot that year. A lazy former senator/ Attorney stole money from me claiming I would never win because I am black and my wife was white in Seminole County that I should except the state attorney pretrial diversion, Mr Yadav said lets fight this put me on the case. I now have equal rights to my son and work in my respected career, he saved my life. Don't never be con into accepting something knowing you are innocent. The state attorney all about getting a conviction.

#1 Attorney Ryan Yadav.
It is sad to know there is Attorney's out there that will take your money sit back, and do nothing. I should know it happen to us a few times. It makes you feel like you can never trust another Attorney. We had to do something. One day I notice an advertisement with Attorney Ryan Yadav, We made an appointment meet with him explain the situation to him. He took our case to court, and won. He did what no other Attorney would do. He is the #1 Attorney you would want on your side if you go to court. He is confident and ready to fight for your justice.

Agressive and Honest
I had never hoped to ever need a criminal attorney, but when I did, I am so thankful for Ryan Yadav. He was honest from the start and everything he said would happen did. He never promised anything he could not accomplish. He gave awesome advice that ultimately led to pretrial diversion instead of probation or other sentencing. If you need an amazing criminal attorney: don't call Saul, you better call Ryan!

In 2011 I was wrongfully accused of domestic violence while going through a divorce. My spouse fabricated a story about me pushing and hitting her in an attempt to gain an advantage over the custody dispute concerning our 3 year old child. I first hired some old fart lawyer in Orlando who wanted to take a lot of my money and force me into a plea deal, I was not going to do that because I knew if I admitted to ANYTHING I would lose not only my job but also my child. A friend told me about this guy with serious swagger that doesn’t take shi*t from nobody so I called him up and was so impressed by his honesty and aggressiveness that I fired the other guy and hired him that day. Ryan immediately set the case for trial and a month later we were in front of a jury. Everyone in the courthouse knows Ryan, the Judge, bailiffs etc… treated him like he was a celebrity. I felt privileged to watch him in front of that jury, he is an animal in the courtroom, they should charge admission when he is in a trial, the jurors loved him, you could tell they were put off by the overzealous prosecutors that were trying to tag team me. Long story short the jury was out 5 minutes and came back NOT GUILTY. Mr. Yadav not only won my freedom that day without him I would have probably lost all rights to my daughter. Two years later I have 50 % access to my daughter and all charges have been erased from my record. This guy is the real deal and what all lawyers should aspire to be.

Mr. Yadav is not afraid to take on the complicated cases and will go to trial without reservation or hesitation. A formidable attorney that the opposition takes notice quickly. Very skilled in the courtroom. His courtroom demeanor is excellent and would hope that he would one day run for a judgeship. He would be an asset to the bench and as a public servant. Honest and responds to your communications on a timely basis. I recommend this attorney without reservation.

Honest straight forward answered every question I had and was a great help to me in a difficult time in my life.

Top Nitch Attorney
I really appreciated the honesty that Ryan provided me. He told me how it was instead of how i wanted it to be. He also negotiated a deal that was for a first offender. I was more like a 10 time offender. His rates were reasonable and they were well worth it. He knows the courtroom and all the people in it. He is a little pushy in the courtroom but they let him be. He doesn't take sh*t from the state and gets the plea deal to swing in the favor of the defendant with ease. Pretty damn good.
