Summary

Ryan began his legal career as an Assistant State Attorney with the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office, where he tried over 50 jury trials (and over 200 non-jury trials) at both the felony and misdemeanor levels. He then went on to practice law for a prominent insurance defense firm until the fall of 2007, when he joined the Plaintiff’s side and began helping Injury victims. He now represents plaintiffs’ rights in personal injury and wrongful death claims. In the past Ryan has defended insurance companies and their insureds, which provides him with a unique insight into the inner workings of insurance companies. That is an advantage that Ryan has over many other plaintiffs’ attorneys.

In 2013, Ryan became a life member in good standing of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum (MMADF). Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.

Ryan Cappy was selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2018 publication of Best Lawyers in America® in the area of Personal Injury Litigation-Plaintiffs. The Best Lawyers in America is the oldest and most respected legal referral guide in the U.S. Best Lawyers annually surveys thousands of top attorneys, who confidentially evaluate the legal abilities of their professional peers.

Ryan’s practice encompasses a broad range of personal injury claims, including wrongful death, automobile accidents (including trucking, motorcycle, and drunk driving accidents), and slip and falls. He also practices in the areas of medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, dog bites, and social security disability. He is an active member of the Florida Bar, the Hillsborough County Bar Association, Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association, Florida Justice Association, National Association of Consumer Advocates.

Legal Elite
Florida Trend Magazine
Florida Trend’s Legal Elite represents a prestigious roster of attorneys chosen for recognition by their peers. The 1,012 lawyers chosen exemplify a standard of excellence in their profession and by so doing, have garnered the respect and esteem of their colleagues. Honorees include attorneys in private practice as well as top government and non-profit attorneys. To compile the Legal Elite list, Florida Trend invited all in-state members of the Florida Bar to name attorneys whom they hold in the highest regard or would recommend to others. Each lawyer was given a score based on the number of votes he or she received, with more weight given to votes from outside the firm. The 2018 Florida Trend’s Legal Elite list of attorneys represents fewer than 1.5% of the active Florida Bar members who practice in Florida.
