Ryan L. Asprion

Associate Attorney

"I became an attorney because I believe in being the change you want to see in the world.  Practicing law isn’t just a job I love, it’s an opportunity to serve others, for which I am grateful.  It is a privilege to walk alongside my clients, while providing wise counsel, compassion and integrity.

 

I became a Family Law Attorney because it allows me to build caring relationships with my clients.  Family law isn’t only about assessing and advising a client on their legal rights, it’s about allowing people to feel heard, understood and hopeful during one of the most difficult times in their lives.

 

What I enjoy about family law is being in the role of both attorney and counselor, where I use my empathy and compassion to help calm stressful situations and offer my support to families undergoing this unfamiliar and complex legal process."

Ryan joined the Beal Law Firm in May 2022, upon discovering her passion for family law at the same firm (under a different name) where she practiced consumer bankruptcy for over seven years.  Having decided at an early age that she wanted to become a lawyer, both bankruptcy and family law afforded her the opportunity to help ordinary people who are struggling with common real life issues.

 

Born and raised in Texas, Ryan obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Southern Methodist University.  During her time at SMU, she worked as a legal assistant for a criminal defense practice, which reinforced her longstanding aspiration of becoming a lawyer.

 

Upon graduating from SMU, Ryan attended St. Mary’s University School of Law, where she was selected to participate in the Criminal Justice Clinical Program.  While practicing as a student attorney in the clinic, Ryan was chosen by her professors and supervising attorneys for the esteemed and rare honor of presenting oral argument to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.  

 

Ryan was licensed in 1997 and has gained extensive experience in multiple practice areas including bankruptcy, civil litigation, criminal law, business transactions, parole hearings, and family law.  She is licensed in both Texas state court and Texas federal courts.

 

In her personal time, Ryan enjoys watching her two sons compete in football, baseball, and basketball, as well as hosting extended family gatherings. She may also be found walking her chocolate lab, Gunner, working on her next interior decorating inspiration, or volunteering alongside her sons through the Lakes chapter of YMSL.
