In addition, Ryan provides dedicated pro bono legal services to and volunteers in the Boston community. He successfully argued a motion in Massachusetts Superior Court to protect a sexual assault victim from being required to provide her medical and mental health records to the defendant in the criminal case against him. Ryan has also successfully assisted multiple individuals in receiving unemployment benefits in the face of resistant former employers, and he regularly volunteers at the Boston Bar Association’s CORI Clinic, helping low-income individuals to overcome difficulties in finding work and housing by sealing old criminal records. Ryan also volunteers for the Boston NextGen Group, which is associated with the Tina’s Wish organization. Tina’s Wish is a charity founded in 2008 in memory of the Honorable Tina Brozman, former chief justice of the SDNY Bankruptcy Court who died two years after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
While attending Boston College Law School, Ryan was a member of the Journal of Law & Social Justice, won a Boston College Mock Trial Competition and participated in the school’s civil litigation clinic and its pro bono service trip to New Orleans.
