Ryan Huffman is a trial lawyer with a background in defending clients accused of crimes. As a member of Nesci & St. Louis, he represents individuals accused of DUIs, misdemeanors and felony offenses at courts in Tucson, Pima County and throughout Arizona.
Ryan set an office record for the most trial wins in the shortest period of time by winning three DUI trials in a row in an eight-week period – not guilty verdicts across the board in all three trials, which included a reported blood alcohol concentration as high as .213. Ryan has vigorously represented accused individuals throughout all stages of litigation, including trials and appeals. His experience includes both misdemeanor and felony criminal matters. He has a particular familiarity with motion practice, seeking to have his clients’ cases dismissed prior to trial, and is passionate about advocating against unethical police tactics and procedures. Not afraid to take a case to trial, Ryan successfully negotiated a plea to probation midtrial, when his client would have been required to serve life in prison if convicted.
Ryan is an Arizona native and graduated from Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law (ASU Law) in 2016. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Arizona, where he majored in Political Science. Ryan’s legal experience includes working at the Maricopa County Public Defender’s Office, as well as the Federal Public Defender’s office in Tucson during law school, and as an attorney in private practice since being licensed by the Arizona State Bar
Since joining Nesci & St. Louis, Ryan has focused on pretrial litigation and trial work in DUIs, misdemeanors and felonies in courts throughout Arizona. When not defending individuals accused of crimes, Ryan’s interests include studying Arizona’s history, traveling, volunteering, and spending time with his friends and family.
"I recently had a very ridiculous case and Ryan went above and beyond working for me. Ryan had the case thrown out before it even reached pre trial. If you want a lawyer who will actually be there for you and work for a easy and fast dismissal he’s your guy. The pricing is also very reasonable. I highly recommend him to anyone needing help." - Former Client
