Ryan Proctor

Partner

Before moving to Atlanta, Ryan studied in the United States and abroad. He became fluent in Spanish while attending the University at Ramon Llull in Barcelona, Spain. He uses his language abilities to communicate with and help clients when other attorneys cannot.

After working several years as an attorney, Ryan was drawn to Stearns–Montgomery because of its reputation for high ethical standards and an exceptional level of client contact. In 2010, Ryan became a partner, and the firm’s name changed to Stearns-Montgomery and Proctor. Ryan generally works out of SM&P's Buckhead Office.

Ryan, his wife, Lori, their son, Dylan, and daughter Eva live in Atlanta. They have one dog, Saylor, and two cats, Captain and Scout. When Ryan isn’t practicing law, you will find him spending quality time with his family, often escaping the city to the mountains or Lake Allatoona. Although residing in Atlanta, he is an avid fan of the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Hoosiers. Ryan also enjoys playing guitar with his band.
