Catherine Ryan, Senior Litigation Attorney

 

Catherine

Catherine Schraegle Ryan is Dallas born and raised. She was a National Merit Scholar, and thereafter a Hunt Leadership Scholar at Southern Methodist University, where she graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with honors, as well as a history minor and a Russian minor. She served two terms as Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Xi Chapter’s, parliamentarian, and was a very active member of SMU Catholic and Spectrum, SMU’s LGBTQ+ club. She was contemporaneously a long-time bartender and waitress at infamous Dallas watering hole The Loon, and was honored to serve the Dallas Mavericks at their private victory party there after they won the NBA Championship in 2011.

Catherine graduated from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2016, where she benefited from serving on the board of the Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal and the Board of Barristers, completing mediator and guardian ad litem training, and participating in probate law clinic. Her article, Keeping It Away from the Family: Defending Baby Boomers’ Financial Interests from Their Own Children Breaching Fiduciary Duty, was published in Volume VIII of the Texas Tech University School of Law Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal.

She moved home to Dallas to begin practicing in 2016 upon passing the Texas bar exam. Catherine is a zealous litigator with experience in personal injury, medical malpractice, business law, and commercial litigation, and she also practices estate planning. She believes that passionate advocacy does not mean sacrificing professionalism, courtesy, compassion, or kindness. Catherine went to law school to “save the world” and believes she can help make our world a better place, one client’s world at a time. She is always at her clients’ service.

When she is not in the courtroom, Catherine is with her husband, her nieces, her basset hound Walker, doing anything outside, traveling, listening to Fleetwood Mac, reading, volunteering at Genesis Women’s Shelter, crying when the Cowboys lose, cooking, or hanging upside down on a circus apparatus.
