About Hirlye “Ryan” Lutz

Raised in Birmingham, Ryan Lutz earned his undergraduate degree from Auburn University before returning to Birmingham to pursue his Juris Doctor at Cumberland School of Law at Samford University.

Since joining Cory Watson in 2006, Ryan has served leading roles for the firm in Multi-District Litigation involving Medical Devices and Defective Products. One of his most important accomplishments was leading two nationwide class action cases against the makers of dangerous glass-front fireplaces causing third-degree burns to infants and toddlers. As a result of those cases, the fireplace industry changed its standards to require mandatory safety screens, preventing further harm to children.

Most recently, he served as Co-Lead Counsel in a product liability case, Cruz v. Nissan North America, holding Nissan accountable for a dangerous product defect in their braking system. The successful Cory Watson Attorneys trial team helped secure a $25 million verdict for plaintiffs.
