About Ryan Alekman

Ryan E. Alekman is a third-generation trial lawyer, who for years has worked in personal injury law and criminal defense.

Ryan grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, where his mother maintained a satellite law office in the home. Starting in high school, he began assisting her in various areas of the law.

Thereafter, Ryan attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and spent his junior year studying in Sevilla, Spain, where he met his wife who was studying in the same program. After graduating UMass in 1993, he worked for a year for two personal injury law firms in Boston, where he focused on pre-litigation (mostly PIP) issues. While attending Western New England Law School, he continued assisting his mother in her personal injury cases.

In 1997, Ryan graduated law school and began his own practice immediately, with the assistance of lawyers who mentored him. As a Spanish-speaking attorney in Springfield, his practice quickly grew. Through his representation of thousands of people injured in car accidents, he has developed a knowledge of PIP issues that has made him a resource for other lawyers across Massachusetts. A longtime member of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA), Ryan was elected (and since re-elected annually) by his peers to the Board of Governors.
