Ryan Damiano

Ryan Damiano’s practice covers a wide range of commercial transactions and litigation matters, most often relating to real estate and oil and gas. Ryan’s background in accounting gives him a strong understanding of financial statements and business economics, and enables him to help clients understand how deal points may affect the bottom line. He’s also a rare attorney who will both document transactions and litigate for his clients. 

    Ryan lives in Aledo with his wife and children. Though he has moved west, he still considers himself very much a part of the Fort Worth community, which is reflected by some of his favorite spots, including Buon Giorno coffee shop near downtown and Saint Emilion Restaurant on the West Side. Ryan enjoys traveling with his family, fishing, hunting and skiing.
