Ryan Todd focuses on complex legal research, writing, and argument. He primarily concentrates on Personal Injury, motor vehicle accident, and Wrongful Death cases. Ryan’s interest in the law began when he joined his high school mock trial team to overcome a fear of public speaking. After graduating from high school Ryan continued his education at the University of Texas at Austin where he earned his Bachelors in Business Administration in 1997. While attending college Ryan continued to pursue his interest in the law by becoming a member of the mock trial team, which placed fourth in the national Gold Flight Mock Trial Competition in 1994. Naturally, he went on to attend St. Mary’s University School of Law where he served as a research assistant for Professor Demleitner as well as a Torts course tutor for Professor (later, Dean) Cantu. Ryan also became a member of the John M. Harlan Society honoring scholastic legal achievement, and of the Phi Delta Phi — Tarlton Inn international legal fraternity.
In 2001, Ryan earned his Juris Doctor, summa cum laude, indicating he graduated in the top 2% of his class. He began his legal career in 2001 practicing commercial litigation in San Antonio, Texas. A detour into Virginia allowed Ryan to secure his second state law license for the District of Columbia in 2006. Ryan returned home to Texas and continued his career focusing on an insurance litigation docket including personal/commercial vehicle accidents, as well as Wrongful Death, premises liability, construction defect, and dog bite cases, plus all things in-between. Ryan joined Ketterman, Rowland & Westlund in 2014 bringing his many years of experience and a unique analytical legal perspective. His aptitude for detail-oriented legal thinking, polished writing, and passionate legal argument enables him to provide assistance to anyone with a need for an advocate for their rights.
