Ryan moved to Colorado in 2018. He worked at a large plaintiff-side personal injury firm in Denver before moving to a small defense firm where he defended insurers and individuals in premises liability, auto injury, defamation, property, and insurance arenas. His experience on the defense side has given Ryan insight into how to build the best case for his clients and knowledge of what to expect. Finally, before joining Burg Simpson, Ryan represented homeowners and property owners through the appraisal and insurance claims process, pursuing bad faith claims against insurance companies for unreasonable delay and denial of benefits. He also enjoys appellate work and has briefed and argued before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
