As a civil litigation attorney at Lind, Jensen, Sullivan & Peterson, P.A., Ryan concentrates his practice on medical malpractice defense and professional licensing where he represents hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, physicians, nurses, and other health care providers.
In addition to his civil litigation experience, Ryan gained valuable experience as a risk manager for a major Minnesota hospital and a litigation attorney for another Minnesota law firm.
Ryan has long had a passion for law and a strong work ethic. Those attributes guide his approach to both his legal practice and his life. Ryan became an attorney so that he could bring together his interests and his ideals to not only represent his clients, but to advocate for them. Ryan began his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General in the Public Protection Division of the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office. That experience led Ryan to understand that oftentimes litigation is very daunting to those brought into it. Ryan relies on his passion, dedication, and values to assist his clients through that process and to achieve the best results for them.
