Managing Partner
Orange Beach, Alabama

We serve clients in southwest Alabama in the areas of:

  • Construction Law - Because we work closely with the construction and contractor industry and have litigated many cases, our knowledge can go to work for you. We have won cases relating to the correct application of synthetic stucco and other defective building material applications.
  • Small Business Law - We provide a wide variety of services to our business clients from assisting in selecting the type of organizational entity under which to operate, preparation of agreements, sale and purchase of businesses, obtaining financing and funding for business operations, and employee relations, to dissolution.
  • Personal Injury - Our firm represents individuals involved in controversies alleging a wrong or damage to another persons, rights, reputation, or property resulting from events or activities such as automobile accidents, defective products, infliction of emotional distress, intentional misconduct, and negligence.
  • Wrongful Death - We also represent clients that have lost a loved one in accident. Nothing can replace a lost loved one, but we will aggressively pursue your claim so you get the compensation you deserve.

Ryan & Wilkes, P.C. has two offices for your convenience. Our main office is located in Bay Minette, and the other office in Alabama.

Our attorneys will work for you and you will know it. Regardless of the severity of your injury, the type of business legal needs you have or the amount of damages you seek to recover, you will receive the personal attention, a well prepared attorney, prompt courteous service, and rapid response you are entitled to. You should expect nothing less from your lawyer.

We focus on your background, needs, and goals, and are committed to responding promptly to telephone calls, and minimizing and eliminating risk by keeping you informed. We have a reputation for being extremely well-prepared and will spend the time going through important but tedious documentation that can help you win your case. That type of intense detail orientation gets us the results we get. Our dedication to quality, understanding of the law, trust, and respect are the foundation for our long-standing relationships with our clients.
