Attorney Ryan Ross is a graduate of Doane College (B.S. 1992 With Distinction) and Willamette Law School (J.D. 1995). He is admitted to practice law in the United States Federal Court, as well as Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska state courts. Ryan handles primarily real estate property matters (such as title opinions, title insurance, title guarantee, foreclosures, deeds, sales, acquisitions, condominium transactions, purchase agreements, contracts, leases, options, easements, restrictive covenants, construction liens, landlord-tenant, evictions, subdivision, and zoning and board of adjustment items), business matters (corporations, nonprofit corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, acquisitions, sales, mergers, contracts, succession planning, dissolutions, financing, and licensing), and estate planning and probate (e.g. wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and living wills, small estates, complex estates). He also handles banking/commercial law (such as mortgage and loan agreements, lender work-outs, intercreditor agreements, and collateral securitization), and commercial collection matters.

Throughout law school, Ryan held clerkships with a private practice, with the City of Salem, and with the Oregon Attorney General’s Office. Immediately upon graduation, he was hired as general counsel for a gaming company who owned/managed riverboats and land-based casinos in the Midwest. He became a partner only four years after joining our firm and is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell. Ryan serves on a number of charitable, community, religious, and legal organizations.

In addition to his fast-paced professional life, Ryan is a nature enthusiast and a proponent of renewable energy projects. He spends his leisure time hiking, golfing, running, biking, bowling, camping, traveling, and gardening – just to name a few of his interests. He is happiest with a pack on his back and miles of wilderness in front of him. Despite the many things on his plate (both professionally and personally), Ryan’s door is always open. He listens to his clients and is sincerely committed in helping you achieve success in your endeavors!

Superb Job
Ryan has been both our Corporate attorney as well as he has handled complex real estate transactions for personal and business. When it comes to estate planning he does a great job of explaining all the pros and cons to making decisions. I would highly recommend him and the office for any legal needs.

Executive Director
Ryan was an excellent resource and strong advocate that navigated me through every step of the process I knew nothing about. His expertise was very much appreciated and if he did not posses that knowledge he found the answer/expert immediately. I have had the privilege of working with Ryan both personally and professionally. I will, and have, recommend Ryan to friends and colleagues.
