About Ryan

Learn Ryan’s areas of practice.

Ryan Maughan is a passionate advocate for his community. A native of Southern California, he has dedicated his professional career to helping individuals and families in need. Before becoming an attorney, Ryan served as a VISTA (Volunteers in Service America) in the Americorps program where he advocated for children and families in low-income communities. Ryan battled injustices and championed worthy causes including early childhood literacy. Now, as an attorney, he continues the good fight in the courtroom as he represents aggrieved clients seeking justice.

Ryan graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara before earning his law degree at Chapman University Fowler School of Law. Ryan began his trial career while still in law school when he tried and won his first case in federal court as an intern for the Office of the Chief Counsel for the Internal Revenue Service. Prior to opening his own firm, Ryan honed his advocacy skills at a prestigious, national law firm. There, he represented multinational companies and public entities from the onset of a case through trial. Ryan distinguished himself as a thoughtful problem solver unafraid to take on any challenge. Ryan continued to gain trial experience while working for a national insurance company as an in-house trial attorney. From this experience, he gained firsthand knowledge of the tactics insurance companies use and learned how to protect individuals from them.

Now working on behalf of injured parties, Ryan brings his in-depth knowledge of the insurance industry and tireless spirit to each case. Each day, Ryan strives to make his community a better, safer place by standing up for those who have been wronged. His clients appreciate that he is a compassionate listener, a skilled negotiator, and a fearless advocate.

Quick, professional, and courteous!
Needed some legal help while out visiting my family - can't recommend Ryan enough. He made the process super simple, cutting the jargon and explaining my options in ways you don't need a law degree to understand. Great guy, knows his stuff and gives undivided attention to your matters. Having Scout (his dog/sidekick in law) sit in on meetings is a great bonus

Diligent, Professional, Communicative
Ryan is one of the best attorneys I've ever worked with. I not only recommend him, but guarantee that once you consult with Ryan, you will look no further. One thing that stood out most to me is how personable Ryan is. I'm the kind of person that's scared to ask questions, in fear of looking stupid. However, Ryan makes you feel comfortable and not intimidated to ask questions. In addition, he is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. The legal process can be complicated and confusing but Ryan explains the law and process in a way that anyone can understand. Even though Ryan has other clients to help, he makes you feel like you and your case are prioritized because he responds in a timely manner and communicates with you every step of the way. He works hard for you and you truly feel like he cares. Ryan has a very reassuring presence, but is also straightforward and realistic about what you can or cannot expect out of your situation. Don't hesitate to set up a consultation with Ryan if you need legal services!!!!!

Excellent attorney! Thanks for the help, Ryan!
I highly recommend signing up with Ryan. I had a legal issue with the insurance companies that ended up being much more complicated than I had expected. I reached out to Ryan and explained the issue. He took my case and fought for me. I am leaving this review because he was able to bring about a much better result than I had expected—and quickly. Thanks for the help, Ryan. It was such a relief to get everything worked out.

Professional Expertise, Genuine Compassion
Ryan obtained the results I wanted and then some. Throughout the process, he was incredibly helpful and communicative—he continually kept me up to date and was careful to explain all matters, however complicated, in a straightforward and intuitive manner. From the very first conversation, Ryan brought clarity and a sense of confidence to a situation that had me feeling overwhelmed and stressed. It was clear that my case and my well-being were his top priority, a feeling confirmed by the positive outcome of the case. Through his professional expertise and genuine compassion, Ryan made sure that I was taken care of every step of the way. I highly recommend him without any hesitation.

Awesome Lawyer, Awesome Person
I can’t say enough good things about Ryan. I came to Ryan when I didn’t have anywhere else to turn. Ryan was extremely responsive and helped me navigate through all the twists and turns of my case. He listened to me and allowed me to talk through all my concerns and ask a lot of questions. I’m sure he’s a busy person and has a lot of other clients he needs to pay attention to, but I never felt rushed or as if I was just another case file. Ryan is a caring lawyer. He took me step-by-step through everything I should expect in the process of getting to a final resolution. I always felt like I had his full attention and that he understood the emotional roller coaster I was experiencing. Ryan also kept me updated about what was going on in the case on a regular basis. I know of some people who have hired other attorneys and did not hear back from them for months but that was not the case with Ryan. Whenever something new happened in the case, Ryan took the time to reach out to me to give me a quick status update. I trusted him to do what he needed to get the best results and the highest payout for me and he definitely delivered. If I’m ever in another car accident or feel like I’ve been wronged, I won’t hesitate to contact him again and to refer him to my friends and family.
