Ryan A. Prochaska joined Prochaska, Howell & Prochaska LLC in 2010 after graduating law school. Ryan believes that every case is important no matter the injury, or how complex the litigation. He has made it his practice to represent plaintiffs exclusively. This is because those injured in medical malpractice, wrongful death, and personal injury cases are hurting and need an attorney who understands their suffering.
Ryan’s primary focus is to win fair compensation for his clients, while also maintaining a professional and compassionate relationship. He gives each client personal attention while providing open communication through the entire process. Combining these ideals with the firm’s resources, Ryan is able to achieve successful results for his clients.
