I practice primarily in the areas of personal injury, criminal defense and consumer bankruptcy.  I am experienced in both transactional and litigation matters.

I have experience in copyright and trademark infringement litigation, commercial and entertainment contract litigation. In transactional work, I have personally handled motion picture finance, television deals, reality show performance contracts, record deals, record label foundations, management contracts, song licensing, band merchandising, music publishing, songwriter and production deals, motion picture development contracts, as well as copyright and trademark counseling and filing.

I also have experience in the areas of Nevada business formation and franchises.  I have been featured as an alumni guest speaker at Harvard Law School, and as a guest presenter at the International Academy of Design and Emerson College.


The personal side: “I grew up in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada, spending much of my childhood on a farm outside a steeltown about 15 miles from Buffalo, New York. My mother’s family were mostly union iron and steelworkers, my father a military officer.  During my teen years, things got more exciting and through a random series of events I was able to spend time in Germany with my father, and later attended boarding school in New Zealand and then college in Hawaii.  I developed a strong affinity for the people and cultures of Polynesia, and even performed in Samoan and Maori culture dance troupes.

During college I took two years off to serve a religious mission in Seattle, Washington, where I worked solely with the Spanish-speaking immigrants in the metro Seattle area.  We not only taught doctrine but helped people find jobs, establish social groups and make new friends, get furniture for their empty homes, and helped people integrate and build lives in America.  Their problems were our problems, and those years working with Latin families in their homes gave me invaluable insight into the communities and the struggles of Hispanic immigrants to the USA.  It was also in Seattle that I first considered being an attorney - I never even knew any lawyers before then… a big departure from wanting to be an artist.  I returned to Hawaii, changed majors from Visual Art to International Business, and worked on getting into law school.

When I went to law school at Harvard, I was the only person who said they wanted to be a plaintiff’s lawyer; a friend who is an injury lawyer won me over with stories about his cases helping severely injured people.  I was also the only person in the whole class to start their own practice right away, as soon as I was licensed I formed my first practice.  And I’ve been proud to help people who have been injured, people accused of crimes, families in financial trouble, artists and small business owners with intellectual property issues and more.  I like working with people and now enjoy the ‘counselor’ role of the attorney.

I’m married with three young children.  I enjoy movies and documentaries, photography and graphic design, exotic sports cars and languages.  Still dabbling in Photoshop and typography, I also created the infamous Hello Kitty Ferrari that went around the internet.”

Great Personal Injury Attorney
Ryan Alexander was great in helping me with my claim. He was always professional and caring. He took the time to answer our questions and concerns. He was effective at negotiating the insurance's original offer and was able to help us get a settlement much higher than we had anticipated. I would not hesitate in recommending Ryan Alexander and using him again in the future. Thanks you so much for your hard work!

While searching online for an attorney that specializes in our case, we found Ryan Alexander’s youtube video. He helped us with the chapter 11 re-organization plan and saved our business. He is knowledgeable, professional and trustworthy. Jen was a great help in answering all of my questions in a timely manner. They handled our case as quickly and smoothly as possible. We will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

Harvard Graduate but You would never know, he’s so humble
Hi Ryan! Thank you so much! You have really been a blessing to us and we really appreciate everything you have done and your paralegal Brian to help us. It was very reassuring to see others that were not prepared due to an oversight by their attorneys. We are so thankful to have you on our side as our lawyer, and be able to have this opportunity. We can tell that you really cared and that you truly enjoy helping people. Everything was very organized and thorough. His pricing was affordable. The fact he’s an Harvard Graduate was the icing on the cake!

If you want someone smart (Harvard), kind (he's a teddy bear, and extremely organized then you want Ryan. I dealt with Ryan from beginning to end. He is very knowledgeable and easy to connect with. His staff is wonderful (love you Brian!). Ryan sent opposing counsel wimpering in the corner at one point. I just sat there and grinned. He will work with you. You're not just another number or paycheck. There is no question I'm going back to Ryan for anything I need.

Excellent attorney, great team
I'm very happy that I chose to work with this attorney and his paralegal, Brian Johnson. Both were very knowledgable and amazingly responsive. I felt well taken care of, informed of my options and questions were always answered promptly during the different stages of the case. Brian and Mr. Alexander are a great team and I would recommend them ( and have) to anybody who asked.

Entertainment Contracts
Ryan negotiated several entertainment deals on my company's behalf. My deals included well known celebrities who after seeing how Ryan worked also retained him to rep them on their deals.

Any Lawyer can win a case or two....but do they always have your best interest?
Mr. Alexander helped me with several issues I had regarding Partnerships and LLC case laws. Any lawyer can win a case or two (I did have a favorable judgment) but what made my experience different than the other dozen attorneys I have worked with was he was always honest and upfront with me. He told me what the reality was VS what I thought was "fair". This allowed me to work with Mr. Alexander to devise the best strategy and plan of action. His integrity and knowledge with my specific situation was invaluable and I thank him publicly.

Smart, Reliable, Integrity
I had the pleasure of getting to know Ryan in a Las Vegas-based alumni group, and found him to be sharp-minded and polite, broadcasting an aura of good energy and candor. Soon, Ryan helped resolve several traffic citations, navigating the Clark County court system with confidence. Ryan's professionalism, responsiveness and knowledge of the issues involved were top-notch. A great guy who also happens to be a graduate of Harvard Law School-- you don't find that often in Las Vegas.

Excellent lawyer!!! Professional, highly efficient and caring...
Ryan Alexander helped my husband handle a charge of DUI. We live out of state and was able to handle everything over the phone and via email. He helped us clear up the DMV fines, appeared on our behalf AND got the charges dropped down from a DUI to a reckless driving misdemeanor. We got no extra fines or penalties!!! He handled the situation like a PRO but without the crazy prices and was very kind and understanding. Thank you Ryan for all you did for us!!!

I highly recommend Ryan Alexander for your legal affairs.
Ryan has helped many of my clients who I work with on Short Sales. Ryan reviews with them the pros and cons of a short sale, what to expect and look out for with the bank and he reviews the clients short sale approval letter's and helps advice them on if they should finish the short sale or not. All my clients say that Ryan makes them feel comfortable about their decision and answers all their questions completely and throughly. The clients say they never feel rushed or hurried when meeting with Ryan. My clients have referred many of their family members and friends for legal advice which range from bankruptcy, personal injury and even criminal defense. I will always continue to use Ryan to take care of my clients for short sales.

A Trustworthy Attorney

Great Attorney
Ryan Alexander has been a great attorney. He's been a huge relief and help with my case. They've kept me informed as things develop and have it all completely handled. No complaints at all. I highly recommend hiring his firm.

The best lawyer doesn't argue a case!!!
Mr. Alexander represented me in a case where a prominent insurance company persisted in denying my wife's legitimate medical claims. We had hired the best attorney's to represent us, but under Corporate pressure, this experienced team buckled. One call to Mr. Alexander, was all it took to turn our case around. If you're reading this, and you're having problems with an attorney not fighting for you, or an insurance company is denying your claims, call Mr. Alexander now!!! He will not charge you a dime until the insurance company is paid. Even then, his rates are reasonable and fair, and if you look into his credentials, you will find that no matter what rate you agree on with Mr. Alexander, you are getting an EXTREMELY FAIR DEAL and in some cases where he kind enough, A BARGAIN! Don't be pushed around by passive lawyers or bullying insurance companies. You have rights, you have a life to keep living, and you need someone to represent you who will understand what you are going through. Don't waste time going through the ringer, hire Mr. Alexander today!!!

Our company recommends Ryan Alexander
Quality Excellent We have been working with Ryan Alexander since 2007. He is the most ethical, honest, and knowledgeable Attorney we have ever worked with and therefore highly recommend. He has worked with my companies on various legal matters from forming the business, financial issues to helping advise and consult on closing one of our companies during the economic shift. His knowledge of the law and proper steps to resolving serious legal issues was professional, quick and sound. We just called upon him over the holiday 2012 and he was right there to respond to our needs with solid quick help during his off time. Ryan delivers every time and is an outstanding personality who goes the extra mile for his clients.
