At a time when specialization is a defining quality of the legal profession, Ryan Wagner is a throwback to an earlier era. Happy to call himself a “hybrid attorney”, he is both a litigator and a dealmaker. He can, with equal facility, try a case to its final verdict, or quarterback a complex negotiation to its final signature.

Ryan focuses his practice on commercial and complex civil litigation. His experience includes a wide range of litigation matters including, contract disputes, business torts, surety bond claims, insurance recovery and other commercial matters. Ryan has experience in all phases of the litigation process in state and federal courts, including at the appellate level.

Since co-founding Adelman & Wagner, PLLC, he has emphasized turning out big-firm work product, without the big-firm price tag. Ryan focuses on understanding his clients’ goals in order to craft an effective and personalized approach to resolve their disputes.

As a litigator, Ryan keeps his clients grounded in reality. He gets them to question their own motives before bringing a lawsuit, and if he perceives that the probable result isn’t in their best interests, he will not hesitate to advise against it. If they decide to proceed, they do so with their eyes open. But whether they proceed or not, each client knows they will have a fierce advocate on their side, either way.

Ryan measures his success in terms of trust and confidence that his clients place in him, and by that measure he has been quite successful. He represents clients of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies, construction companies, and insurance companies, to family owned, closely held corporations and individuals.

Adhering to Adelman & Wagner, PLLC’s motto, Ryan maintains his focus on the legal aspects of his clients’ business, so that his clients can focus their attention on the continuing success of their business.
