Ryan D. Peterson

Ryan D. Peterson is Senior Associate at Consumer Attorneys. He graduated from University of Minnesota in 2005 and the William Mitchell College of Law (now the Mitchell Hamline School of Law) in 2008. In 2010, Ryan joined a Minneapolis-based collection law firm where he quickly learned the rules and regulations governing consumer collections, particularly the FDCPA. As time went on, Ryan developed a deep desire to work for consumers – to protect individuals who are wrongly treated by large institutions such as banks, consumer reporting agencies and landlords. 

Prior to joining Consumer Attorneys, Ryan ran his own practice for ten years suing companies under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act in federal court, and defending consumers sued for unsecured debts in state court. He is particularly proud of the decisions he secured finding that the FDCPA applies to attorneys in Minnesota who evict tenants for alleged non-payment of rent. He is happy to continue bringing FDCPA and FCRA cases with Consumer Attorneys.

Ryan is passionate about volunteering and consumer education. He used to regularly teach classes through Minneapolis Community Education to help consumers prepare their own disputes of inaccurate credit reporting information. He currently serves as a commissioner on the Minneapolis Commission on Civil Rights, in which he, along with other attorney commissioners, adjudicate alleged violations of the Minneapolis Civil Rights Ordinance.
