Our Story

Ryan J. Garrison began his structured settlement career in 1997, when he took a Summer internship with his Father.

From 1997 - 2006 Ryan spent time finishing high school and college while learning the ins and outs of a structured settlement brokerage. It was during this time assisting injury victims, Ryan developed the desire to be an advocate for those who have suffered personal physical injuries. Ryan then continued the family’s structured settlement tradition as a full-time career in June of 2006.

From 2006 - 2012, Ryan worked for two of the largest structured settlement brokerages in the nation. While calling on local law firms, Perla and Ryan met at a Scottsdale area law firm in 2006. They have been inseparable since. Perla assists Spanish speaking clients understand the settlement process and make informed decisions.

While settling cases for a national defense client in 2011, Ryan worked directly with Joe Villarreal on numerous settlements in New Mexico and Texas. Due to their relentless work ethic and similar movie interests, Ryan and Joe became friends. During one of many conversations, Joe and Ryan agreed that they could build a better firm. More personal accountability. More transparency. More candor. More plaintiff work. Joe moved from Texas in 2012 to make that dream a reality, and Garrison Settlements, a plaintiff only brokerage was founded.

Ryan also passed the FINRA Series 7 and 66 in the fall of 2012. He went to work immediately for a local independent branch of United Planners, where we helped retirees. Garrison Financial, LLC was founded in 2016 when Ryan wanted to have a comprehensive brand that could service the needs of his core clients. Since then, Ryan has worked relentlessly to build the IT infrastructure and a team capable of serving his demanding clientele.

Ryan’s passion has remained the same, financially protecting the physically injured and their families.

“I am excited to be able to help people in a time of need. My greatest achievement has been earning the respect and trust of the trial lawyer community and their clients.
