Ryan Cappy was born and raised in Tampa, where he graduated Cum Laude from Jesuit High School in 1993. He attended Florida State University, where he was the president of the Interfraternity Council. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the Florida State University College of Law in 2000. While in law school, he received the Book Award in Constitutional Law, which is given by the faculty to the student who demonstrates outstanding scholastic achievement in a particular area of law.

Ryan began his career as an Assistant State Attorney with the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office. While at the State Attorney's office he tried over 50 jury trials (and over 200 non-jury trials) at both the felony and misdemeanor levels. He then went on to practice law for a prominent Tampa insurance defense firm until the fall of 2007, when he began to help injury victims. He now represents plaintiffs' rights in personal injury and wrongful death claims. In the past Ryan has defended insurance companies and their insureds, which provides him with a unique insight into the inner workings of insurance companies. That is an advantage that Ryan has over many other plaintiffs' attorneys.

Ryan resides in Tampa with his wife and two children.

Specialties:

Ryan's practice encompasses a broad range of personal injury claims, including wrongful death, automobile accidents (including trucking, motorcycle, and drunk driving accidents), and slip and falls. He also practices in the areas of medical malpractice, workers' compensation, social security disability, product liability and criminal defense.

Amazing Attorney
Mr. Ryan Cappy was the most professional, conscientious and responsive attorney I have ever dealt with. He keeps you informed every step of the way and if you contact him, he answers or replies immediately! I can not express my gratitude and I would highly recommend him! I know without a doubt the level of service he provides backed with his knowledge and attitude makes him the best hands down. I further note, I was recently his client, this is not an advertisement of any kind, rather a true appreciation of his level of service and professionalism!

Outstanding Lawyer and Firm that goes above and beyond
I knew I was in good hands when Ryan got in contact with me on a Sunday while it took other firms later that week to contact me. Ryan is honest and strives for the best and his staff is amazing. Anytime I had a question Ryan and Cindi were eager to respond. My results from the case I'll just sum up with an old saying " Under Promised and Over Delivered!' The reviews don't lie go with someone that has your best interest in mind. I highly recommend Ryan & his staff. I will definitely be using this firm again!

Lawyer Ryan Cappy
After several attempts to speak with other lawyers I was finally provided with the name of Ryan Cappy from The Law Offices of Ryan Cappy. I was injured during the accident and my car was total loss. My lawyer helped me in the matter of days, steer me in the right direction to speed up the process of recovery. The entire process took a long time, however thanks to my lawyer it seemed easy and stress free. He was very professional, competent and considerate handling my case that at the end turn out better than I hoped for. I'm truly thankful. I would recommend him highly for anyone in need.

Ryan is a great lawyer
I had Ryan on a previous case, so when I got into my car accident I did not hesitate to contact him. Went to my inital consultation, and loved how he was going to fight for me. Through out the whole case he was very responsive. Never had a problem through out the whole case. I would recommend him to any person that was involved in a car accident.

Excellent Attorney and Person
It's was a pleasure and honor having Attorney Cappy representing me in my auto accident case. It was a case that Morgan and Morgan wouldn't even touch, due to I was the number one person on the police report. Attorney Cappy believe in my innocents even though the police report and the insurance companies didn't. He was able to still retrieve a good settlement from the insurance company, "within a short period of time", even after they offered a snowball offer. Attorney Cappy was availible most of the time, or got back to me within a timely manner. Even though you can tell that he's well educated. He was easy to commutated with. I found him to be honest, respectful, and very trustworthy. His staff was a pleasure to work with, too. I plan to have Attorney Cappy has a Legal Representative for years to come, and highly recommend him to anyone that's needs a great Attorney. Thank you, Attorney Cappy and Staff for all you done for me! Sincerely, Ralph

Trust, Honesty and Care
Most certainly an attorney you can trust. Ryan Cappy is the only lawyer that I’ve met that makes sure to give constant updates and calls regularly. Ryan handled my case with care and made me feel like everything possible was being done to ensure my stance and case was personally fought for. I felt comfortable and at ease knowing that I was being taken care of professionally and personally and that my case was given a top priority. Ryan will fight for you and do everything he can to ensure efficiency in each stage of your case. I would highly recommend Ryan to any family or friends in the future. Honesty and trust are essential in this business and you won’t be able to find another attorney that can offer the amount of either that he will when dealing with your personal injury case. I really appreciated that he listened when I spoke and had enough experience to be able to give me an idea of what was to come during each stage of my case and how things would play out. If you are looking for an attorney that you can trust to be honest and do right by you, give you updates and fight for you then Ryan Cappy is the man for you. If I ever get into another accident he will be one of my first calls and I thank appreciate everything that he has done for me.
