Ryan’s practice focuses on foreclosure defense and consumer protection litigation. Ryan defends consumer clients against mortgage foreclosure actions and also represents consumers against creditors and debt collectors for collection violations. Ryan represents consumers in cases involving claims under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Ryan has successfully tried mortgage foreclosure cases to verdict and has prosecuted consumer claims against creditors to judgment.

 

Prior to starting his own law practice in 2012, Ryan worked as an independent consultant on the federal government-mandated Independent Foreclosure Review Project, where he was charged with reviewing toxic mortgage loans. While working on this project, Ryan gained a serious interest in consumer protection law.

 

A fifth-generation Tampa native, Ryan Torrens is a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off. Ryan has won many cases against big banks in court and prides himself on being an aggressive advocate for his clients. 

On June 1, 2017, Ryan announced his candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, Ryan ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During his 15-month campaign, Ryan followed through on his pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Ryan ran a proud grassroots campaign and over 367,053 Floridians joined his consumer rights cause and voted for him for Florida Attorney General.

As someone in long-term recovery, Ryan is passionate about advocating for addiction recovery. In his spare time, Ryan enjoys running, fishing, reading and enjoying time with his family, including his wife, Francesca, and their rescued dog named Ziggy.
