Ryan Frazier



Ryan Frazier is a partner in Lewis Brisbois’ Sacramento Office and the leader of our Sacramento Workers’ Compensation team. His practice includes handling workers’ compensation claims and assisting his clients, which include employers, insurers, and third-party adjusting agencies in ensuring only appropriate benefits are paid from claim inception through final settlement or through closure via trial, including appellate level proceedings.   

Ryan also handles consultation regarding optimization of workers’ compensation programs at the employer and insurer level, and provides in-house training at large seminars, in person, and via the internet for his clients.

Ryan represents a range of employers and insurers including medical providers, retailers, construction companies, small businesses, transportation companies, and food service businesses. He has represented multiple Fortune 500 companies, including some of the largest employers in the nation.

Recent matters Ryan has overseen for his clients include:

  • Resolution for a major retailer of a contested death claim via settlement for a small fraction of the potential liability based on deposition testimony elicited from several hostile witnesses.
  • Victory at trial via virtual testimony during COVID for a leading telecommunications company based on evidence that the applicant’s claimed mechanism of injury did not match witness statements regarding the events in question.

Ryan is a frequent plasma donor and enjoys participating in charitable causes, such as pancreatic research funding and supporting animal shelters.
