About me

Ryan M. Harrell joined Elk & Elk as an attorney in 2010.  Prior to his affiliation with the firm, Ryan represented injured clients at another northeast Ohio law firm, and also practiced on his own, focusing on civil appellate work and criminal defense representation.  Ryan now works in Elk & Elk’s research and writing department, where he practices in the field of civil appeals, and is also heavily involved with the research and drafting of briefs and motions for cases throughout the firm. 


After graduating from Miami University in 1998, Ryan worked as an architectural designer prior to attending law school.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2006.  Ryan is a resident of Cleveland Heights, and enjoys music, reading, hiking, cycling and traveling in his spare time.
