Ryan Timoney has been an attorney with Beam Legal Team since 2016 and is currently Of Counsel to Fieger Law. Advocating on behalf of victims of brain injury and other catastrophic injuries, Ryan devotes his practice to complex medical malpractice litigation, with a particular focus on children who have suffered birth injuries. Teaming with Jack Beam and Matthew Patterson, Ryan has fought to hold hospitals, doctors and nurses accountable for their mistakes, successfully recovering millions of dollars for victims across the United States.
Prior to joining Beam Legal Team, Ryan graduated with honors from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. During school, Ryan was elected Managing Editor of The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law, overseeing every aspect of publication. Before law school, he attended Bradley University, where he majored in Mechanical Engineering. Ryan’s technical background has been key to his success, helping him to not only understand the science of the law, but also allowing him to provide a unique perspective. As both a litigator and independent consultant for other attorneys, he has developed a particular expertise in uncovering “lost” or altered electronic medical records.
Ryan’s interest in the law stems from his father Tim, a well-respected criminal defense attorney in Springfield, Illinois. With a desire to litigate from a young age, Ryan is passionate about his work and is dedicated to being the voice for young children who have been harmed.
Ryan currently lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife and best friend Laura, who is a Registered Nurse, and their son Lachlan. When not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing golf, water skiing and cheering on local Chicago sports teams.
Ryan is licensed to practice law in Illinois, the Northern District of Illinois and Michigan. He is an active member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, and the Birth Trauma Litigation Group. Ryan has also been published on topics related to birth injury cases, most recently co-authoring “The Genetics Defense: Science or Fiction?” in early 2023. He has devoted his career to becoming an expert in birth injury cases but would be happy to speak with you regarding any type of medical malpractice or personal injury case.
