Ryan R. McNeil

Akron, Ohio

Ryan McNeil attended the University of Akron Law School where he graduated in the top 15% of his class. In Law School, Mr. McNeil’s successes and talents earned him the distinction and honor of serving on the Editorial Board of the Akron Law Review. However, his achievements were not limited to the confines of a classroom, as Mr. McNeil also excelled in the “real world” practice of law, working for both the county Prosecutor’s office and for an accomplished solo practitioner.

After law school Mr. McNeil became licensed to practice law in both State and Federal Court. Mr. McNeil graduated law school during the financial recession caused by the collapse of the housing market. It was during this time that Mr. McNeil became passionate about bankruptcy law, as he saw the power and protection it affords those who are in need of a financial “Fresh Start.” After working at a bankruptcy firm and practicing in multiple federal bankruptcy courts throughout Northeast Ohio, Mr. McNeil started his own law practice so he could use his knowledge and experience to provide personalized advice to individual clients and small businesses.

When he is not helping individuals achieve financial freedom, Ryan enjoys spending his free time contributing his resources to the communities of Northeast Ohio and spending time with his wife Brenna who is also an Akron attorney.
