Ryan Henry graduated with honors from New Mexico State University with dual bachelor’s degrees in Criminal Justice and Psychology in 1995. He attended law school at Texas Tech School of Law and graduated in May 1998.
While attending law school, Ryan began clerking for the Lubbock City Attorney’s Office. As a result, he began defending governmental entities even before passing the bar exam, and so began his career supporting local governments. Upon graduation, Ryan began working in Brownsville, Texas, with the same focus.
In June 2002, Ryan moved to San Antonio and joined a local law firm in a similar practice area. He launched the Law Offices of Ryan Henry, PLLC in 2012.
Ryan was named one of the best attorneys in municipal law by S.A. Scene Magazine in 2016 and 2017. He currently serves as chairman of the Government Law section of the State Bar of Texas.
