After graduating from the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah in May of 2004, Ryan Stout began his legal career working for a Southern Utah law firm that focuses on helping people who weren’t being treated fairly after being injured on the job, as well as helping people with various types of personal injury claims.
He developed a passion for helping people that were not being treated fairly by big insurance companies. He took that same passion with him when he joined Douglas D. Terry & Associates in October of 2005.
His passion for “sticking up for the little guy” was a perfect fit for what turned into his true professional passion — vigorously defending individuals who have been accused of committing a crime.
Ryan Stout has successfully handled thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases in local Justice and District Courts, as well as many dozens of cases in Federal Court.
He is one of a small number of attorneys in Southern Utah that is on the “CJA panel”— a select list of attorneys with the specialized knowledge, training, and experience to accept court appointed cases in Federal court.
He has argued in front of the Utah Court of Appeals as well as the Supreme Court of Utah. He has also been involved in two capital homicide cases.
