Ryan Mac Eachern was born in Orange, California, and grew up in nearby Mission Viejo where he attended and graduated from Santa Margarita High School. After high school, Ryan attended the University of Arizona and graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. At Arizona, Ryan got his first experience in the legal world when he interned at the Clerk’s Office of the United States District Court.
Growing up the son of an Orange County deputy district attorney, Ryan always knew he wanted to work in the field of criminal defense law and he started to make that dream a reality when he began attending Western State University College of Law in Orange County. At law school, Ryan participated in the school’s Law Review and Criminal Law Association, focusing on criminal law courses and receiving the school’s Criminal Law Certificate with distinction.
Shortly after graduating and passing the California State Bar, Ryan began working for a traffic ticket defense firm where he defended numerous traffic infractions, misdemeanors, DUI cases, and DMV administrative per se hearings. Over the past nine years, Ryan has handled thousands of traffic citations and misdemeanor matters, has successfully gotten cases dismissed, and has negotiated positive resolutions with police officers and the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
Outside of court and the office, Ryan enjoys traveling, playing soccer, surfing, and watching baseball.
