A graduate of the Nashville School of Law and Middle Tennessee State University, Ryan is committed to helping individuals in Nashville and Middle Tennessee when the going gets tough. No one wants to need a criminal defense, DUI, or divorce attorney, but sometimes good people find themselves in tough situations. In those times, you want someone in your corner who is empathetic, passionate, and can vigorously advocate on your behalf. Ryan embodies these characteristics, and strives not only for favorable outcomes, but also to make the entire legal process as painless as possible. Mr. Davis understands on a first-hand basis that anyone can find themselves accused of a crime, and believes the presumption of innocence should apply equally to all people. Ryan also lives by the philosophy that we are all more than our worst mistake, and true justice is about more than simply determining guilt or innocence.

In addition to practicing law, Ryan is an elder at his church in downtown Nashville, where he attends along with his wife, daughter, and twin sons.
