Ryan Thornhill is a graduate of UNT (University of North Texas) Dallas College of Law; Ryan joined us in October 2020 and brings a wealth of hands-on experience in family law, personal injury cases, civil cases, settlement negotiations, and appeals. He welcomes every opportunity to provide clients with the peace of mind they deserve through practical legal advice.
Originally from Springfield, Missouri, Ryan comes from a family of successful legal professionals. This includes his parents, who, to this day, continue to practice in Missouri. As much as he loves his hometown, Ryan said he was eager to carve his own path in a new city. That ultimately brought him to North Texas, where he earned a B. A. in Strategic Communications from TCU (Texas Christian University). He was on the pre-law track the entire time but also dabbled in social media and sports marketing before diving headfirst into his passion for law. He previously worked as a law clerk and associate attorney at Rames Law Firm P.C. and expertly handled everything from civil cases to drafting family law motions and appellate briefs. He also assisted in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals cases. Before that, Ryan spent time as a judicial intern with the Honorable Judge Bonnie Lee Goldstein of the Dallas District 44 and Judge Ken Tapscott in Dallas County Court-At-Law No. 4.
Ryan was eager to take on a position at Nelson Law Group, which he said has earned itself a distinguished reputation as a firm that goes beyond the courtroom to foster personal relationships with clients through devoted, individualized attention. His idea of practicing law is to help people, and he feels Nelson Law Group provides the place to establish himself as a personable, diligent attorney.
In his free time, Ryan enjoys working out, playing golf, reading, cooking, and watching TCU football.
