About Ryan Hilts

Ryan is a native of Medford, Oregon.  Both his father and grandfather were attorneys, and he continued along the same career path.  During Ryan’s undergraduate studies, he played collegiate baseball at Oregon State University and at the University of Utah.  He also spent one season at the University of Utah as a graduate assistant baseball coach and one season as an assistant coach.

After beginning law school he was offered a chance to play baseball for a league in Europe, which he did for two years.  He then returned to the University of Oregon where he completed his law school studies and was admitted to practice.

Ryan spent the first five years of his legal career at an esteemed litigation firm in Medford, where he gained substantial experience and learned invaluable skills.  He learned how to analyze cases from many angles and he became a strong advocate to help achieve the best possible outcome for each case.  Over the years he has successfully handled hundreds of injury cases.

Ryan moved from Medford to Portland in 2010 to start this law firm with the idea that he will select a limited number of cases so that he can continue to provide personalized representation for his clients.  He strongly feels that each client should have direct access to their attorney.  Ryan has a second office location in Bend, Oregon.

My name is Linda and my son in law recommended Ryan Hilts. I did not think I needed a lawyer. My son in law said "If you don't win you don't pay". That made a lot of sense to me. After calling Ryan I realized how comforting it is to have a lawyer. I was in a car accident. The driver was drunk and hit me and took off. A hit and run accident. Ryan told me by Oregon Law I was able to go to the doctors. I was able to get the much needed help. My Chiropractor was amazing. It took time to heal. Ryan was always available and always called me back, when I had any questions. He is a wonderful family man. A man of integrity. He also sent emails and texts to wish our family well on all the Holidays. He went above and beyond what was expected. My case was won without a doubt. I would definitely go back to Ryan for any lawyer needs. He is a good man and you can trust him. Thank you Ryan for everything, words are not enough to express all you did for us.

G. & L. S.

I was recommended to Mr. Hilts by a friend when I had my car accident. I was very impressed with his knowledge and the way he guided me through the process. I appreciated that he always returned my calls and kept me informed about the progress of my case.


I could never say enough good things about Ryan. He was always there to take my calls and answer all of my questions. I really felt like he was working for me; like I was his top priority.


Ryan is a terrific lawyer and a better person. He went above and beyond to reach a settlement in my case and believed in it when no one else did. He’s very intelligent and caring and is always putting the best interests of his clients before his own. Ryan knew more about my case than I even did. He is truly dedicated to his clients, and I can not explain how much I honestly appreciated that. I recommend that you give him a shot if you need to hire an attorney. He won’t let you down.


It was our good fortune to have Ryan Hilts as our attorney. Ryan helped our children avoid a lawsuit and get a successful settlement. He taught us so much. He represented our family with integrity.
