Albaugh, Esq. grew up in Oakland and Berkeley.  He received his undergraduate education from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa (B.B.A., Finance, with Honors, 1996) and his law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law, San Francisco, California (J.D., with Distinction, 1999). He was admitted into the California Bar in 1999 (#202971) and shortly after joined the Marin County District Attorney’s Office where he served as a criminal prosecutor for over six years. During that time Ryan was a member of the Misdemeanor Trial Team and was a trial attorney in the Felony Division and the Family Violence Unit of the D.A’s Office. Ryan gained further experience as a private trial attorney in a mid-sized law firm until later establishing The Albaugh Law Firm. While the Albaugh Law Firm is a successful bi-coastal law firm with offices in San Rafael, California and St Augustine, Florida (the nation’s oldest city), Ryan concentrates his personal practice in criminal defense in Marin County.

With well over 10 years of experience as San Rafael criminal law attorney, Ryan has handled more than 1,000 criminal cases, including over 50 trials. His experience prosecuting criminal matters ranging from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies has provided him with extensive knowledge of criminal law and insight into how the District Attorney approaches cases. Having practiced on both sides of criminal law contributes greatly to Ryan’s success in defending his clients in criminal proceedings.
