Ryan Morgan transferred to the Bar in 2017 after qualifying as a solicitor in 2014. He welcomes work in all junior criminal matters.

During Ryan’s pupillage he has undertaken matters in both the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and has completed the Western Circuit Vulnerable Witness Training. Ryan is also a Grade 1 CPS panel advocate and has experience of prosecuting in both the West County and in South Wales.


After gaining a First in Law and completing his LPC, Ryan qualified and practiced as a Solicitor in his home town of Bristol. He gained experience of representing clients who were accused of neglecting and harming their children including advocating on their behalf in Court and at Local Authority meetings. Ryan built his practice by building strong relationships with clients and professional referrers and intends to bring this successful model to the Bar. His previous experiences mean he is able to fully understand the pressures on professional clients and effectively communicate with lay clients.
