Ryan McKeen

Lab Coach

As a Lab Coach, Ryan coaches lawyers on how to break through their mental blocks and build client-centered law firms.

His brilliance on the team is:

Ryan understood from day 1 that he was building a business. After putting the kids to bed, he’d document a system to process the mail even though he didn’t have a single employee. Now, that work and dedication to systems is paying off in his 20+ firm. He and his team put their clients at the center of everything they do and it shows. He brings that mindset and experience to our Lab program helping lawyers build effective client-centered practices.
