About me

“For me, founding this firm was about creating a great work life experience. I wanted to create a culture where everyone is excited to come to work and believes in what they’re doing. These are the sharpest and most committed attorneys I’ve ever known. I’m really proud of the team we’ve built. It can be very isolating to face a mountain of debt that you’re powerless to tackle on your own. It’s a wonderful thing to be the solution to so many people who are in these tough situations.”   Ryan B. Moran, Esq. founded Moran Law in 2007. Moran Law practices bankruptcy law exclusively, so clients can be assured that the attorneys are very knowledgeable and experienced in the area of bankruptcy law. Moran Law has been given the distinct honor of receiving the American Society of Legal Advocates "Top 40 Lawyers Under 40" for 2015 and has an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.


After graduating from law school, Moran worked in Chicago as an economic analyst for a bond-trading firm at the Chicago Board of Trade before deciding to open his law practice.


Moran received his J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law, where he received a full merit scholarship. He was also elected to the MSU Law College moot court board where he competed in the JMLS International Moot Court Competition in Information Technology and Privacy Law in Chicago, later serving as the board’s administrative executive assistant. While in law school, Moran also clerked in Washington, D.C., for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Office of General Counsel.


Moran received his bachelor’s degree in Finance and Business Economics from Wayne State University, where he graduated cum laude and was the recipient of the T. Norris and Vivilore Hitchman Endowed Scholarship for outstanding leadership and academics. Moran brings a real world perspective, strong communication skills, strong research ability, perseverance, compassion for his clients, and the strength to litigate difficult issue.


Ryan’s hobbies and interests outside of bankruptcy law include reading, basketball, exercise and enjoying the company of his friends and family.
