Ryan Haun has practiced at some of the largest insurance firms in the State of Texas before partnering with his longtime friend Doug Mena. He started his career in 2006 as an attorney handling Hurricane Rita insurance claims in East Texas while representing homeowners and small businesses across the State of Texas. Between 2006 and 2018, Ryan handled over 1,000 first party insurance claims at every stage. Ryan is committed to obtaining positive outcomes for his clients.
Ryan strives to fulfill the two roles of his law degree: attorney and counselor. Real problems require real problem-solving skills, and Ryan strives to employ all of the tools available to bring real resolutions and solutions for his clients.
Ryan has not only contributed to his clients’ lives inside of the courtroom, but has also extended his work to the civic, academic, and professional communities. As a counselor, he coaches individuals on how to respond to risk through the selection of appropriate insurance coverage and how to navigate through the claims process and courts when the unthinkable happens. Whether through his published works, like “Litigating Hurricane Ike: The Plaintiff’s Perspective Nine Month After the Storm,” or through legal clinics conducted at the VA Hospital, Ryan is answering fundamental questions that his audiences and readers have about the complexities, protocols, and practices of the insurance industry.
Ryan has personally handled over 1,000 insurance lawsuits against the largest insurers in the country. Continuing through Hurricane Harvey, Ryan has obtained tens of millions of dollars in settlements for his clients. Chances are, if you have an issue with an insurance claim, Ryan has seen it before.
With the formation of Haun Mena, Ryan has focused on bad faith insurance disputes across the State of Texas and has been recognized for his work:
