Biography

Ryan D. Ledebur joined Lipsitz & Ponterio, LLC, in 2012, as a law clerk and assisted the firm's litigators in conducting legal research, as well as in drafting and editing motions. 

Prior to joining Lipsitz & Ponterio as an associate attorney in 2016, Mr. Ledebur worked at the Western New York Law Center (WNYLC), a not-for-profit law firm in Buffalo, New York. As a staff attorney, he defended individuals facing residential foreclosures. He also helped staff the WNYLC consumer debt clinic, CLARO.

In this role, he works with experienced Lipsitz & Ponterio staff members to oversee the filing of claims on behalf of clients with various asbestos bankruptcy trusts, ensure the provision of sufficient background information to establish these claims and, when necessary, arbitrate the merits of claims against the trusts to secure appropriate monetary awards for our clients.
