I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona and graduated locally from Horizon High School. I received my undergraduate degree from Arizona State University, graduating magna cum laude with a B.S. in Justice Studies and a minor in Political Science. I am a law school graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy.
Since my admission to the Arizona Bar, I have devoted my practice primarily to the area of Domestic Relations (Family Law), but also provide services in the gaming and gambling industry, primarily in relation to internet based advanced deposit wagering pari mutuels. I recognize that every client and/or case is unique and therefore I individually devise an appropriate strategy to ensure that my client’s interest and wishes are protected and fought for.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2017.
Admonition and Probation issued in AZ, 2017
updated on 12/28/2017
An admonishment means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. While on probation, the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Ryan's comment: “While working as one of the two partners at a previous law firm that dissolved in June 2016, there was an issue not related to the litigation or procedure of any cases managed of which gave rise to the probation. I’ve since promptly complied with all provisions of the probation and remain committed to practicing law to the highest ethical standard. I believe this is reflected through the reviews in my profile.”
