When you spend almost every day in court for 15 years, you come away with abundant knowledge regarding the intricacies of the law and how the court system intertwines with the fragility of human lives impacted in the process. This proving ground earned Ryan Vescio accolades as a top prosecutor and fueled his drive to help those harmed and victimized, something he puts to work every day in his legal practice as a commercial, civil and fiduciary litigator.
As a state attorney for 15 years, Ryan managed criminal matters that included everything from high profile murders to heart-wrenching child abuse and sex trafficking cases. This day-in and day-out experience of handling a wide variety of complex cases required him to be a quick study and exposed him to a vast network of attorneys, judges, and experts offering technical and detailed testimony. Intensive on-the-job training left Ryan with the ability to effectively navigate the complexities of the court system, while boldly representing his litigation clients on the grounds of what is fair, just, right and good.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Florida, Ryan initially was drawn to journalism, but once he entered the University of Central Florida his focus was set on studying law. While attending UCF Ryan joined the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and he has been an avid and lifelong supporter of the organization, serving currently on the International Board of Directors. He is also a proud supporter of UCF and currently serves as a Director of the UCF Alumni Board. After UCF, he attended Nova Southeastern University – Shepard Broad Law Center where he was active in the Nova Law Review and served as the Honor Court Chief Prosecutor. A clerkship with Florida’s Office of the State Attorney led to his first position as a state prosecutor.
In his spare time Ryan, his wife, and their six children, three boys and three girls, enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling.
