Attorney Ryan Very

Ryan D. Very, Esq.


Like his late grandfather, Ryan Very is a zealous trial attorney who asserts rights and promotes justice. A fourth-generation Pittsburgher, he has represented hundreds of small businesses and consumers in a wide-variety of civil litigation and criminal defense matters. Mr. Very attended a top-twenty law school. Upon graduation he was awarded a fellowship at the American Civil Liberties Union, one of the most sophisticated legal organizations in American history. He worked at the Pennsylvania chapter, which legalized same-sex marriage state-wide. A proficient litigator, he has negotiated hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil settlements, and plea bargained for the withdrawal of multiple felony charges at the first stage of a criminal proceeding. His client-focused, results-driven practice provides cost-effective strategies that maximize results and avoid preventable obstacles.
