I am the founding partner of Ryan Law Firm, a small, boutique firm handling civil litigation, workers' compensation, and mediation. Our motto is "Local, Experienced, Professional". We welcome referrals or association arrangements for civil matters, workers' compensation claims, and mediations. Prior to opening Ryan Law Firm, I operated the firm of Ryan & Golden with my former partner (now Lowndes County State Court judge) Hon. Ellen S. Golden. Previously, I worked for many years for larger litigation firms. Early in my career, I had the privilege of working as a law clerk for Hon. Hugh Stone (ret.) and Hon. David Barrett (ret.) in the Enotah Judicial Circuit of Georgia, and as an assistant district attorney in the Enotah Circuit. I live in Lowndes County, Georgia with my wife Emily and three children, Mattie, Wheeler and Sara Haynes.
