Ryan Merrigan

Attorney William Reynolds

Are you facing your new reality and you’re not sure what direction to go? So many questions, but where do you find the answers? Where to turn for help? Ryan’s passion is helping people. He takes the time to hear your questions, hopes, and dreams and then provides you with all the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family. Ryan prides himself on walking the journey with you.


From 2010 until Summer of 2019, Ryan has operated his own solo law firm where he served hundreds of clients through the joy and excitement of founding a new company and the stress and anxiety of filing for bankruptcy. Thankfully, very few experienced both. Either way, Ryan’s efforts focused on the health and well-being of his clients with the goal of helping them rest easy.

Ryan’s personal experience with divorce opened his eyes to the challenges that client (and their family) face when involved in a family law related case. That personal experience had such a profound impact on him, that he decided he wanted to help others who have find themselves considering a family law related legal issue. Therefore, in the Summer of 2019 Ryan joined The Reynolds Law Firm, LLC with a desire to be focused on continuing to help individuals in life transitions. Ryan will listen to your concerns, seek to understand your objectives and goals, and then develop a strategy (legal and/or practical) to help you accomplish your objectives.

Outside the office, you’re most likely to find Ryan supporting his kids’ activities either through coaching or volunteering. Ask him about the baseball team. He loves seeing the progress those kids make every season. Ryan is also an avid sports fan, with a special love for the Royals. Yes, he’s the one of those fans that watched -- even through the 100 loss seasons.
