Take out your phone and put Ryan's number in your list of contacts. Then get back to generating innovative ideas that need legal protection. I've known Ryan professionally since he was practicing at a big ol' firm. He worked with so many entrepreneur that he was inspired to abandon the comfort and security provided by working for someone else. So he's out on his own with his name on the shingle at the Corrigan Law Group.
Ryan's approach is that of a trusted advisor and consultant. He does not keep an hourglass on his desk when you meet with him. I value his wisdom, passion and authenticity. I also value his dedication to the community of entrepreneurs.
