One of the joys of being a Widener Law Commonwealth student is meeting alumni. Gabriella Romeo ’21, Student Bar Association President, interviewed alumna Niki Carter ’08. In-person restrictions did not keep them from a fun and engaging interview. Niki currently works at TE Connectivity, a company that designs and manufactures connectivity and sensors products for harsh environments. In her position at TE, Niki counsels the Aerospace, Defense & Marine business unit, and more specifically serves as North American regional commercial counsel for the Aerospace & Defense business and lead counsel for the Marine, Oil & Gas, business. Niki is an experienced business legal advisor, with extensive expertise with U.S. Government, Department of Defense contracts and acquisition regulations. As a trusted business advisor, Niki counsels internal clients on a variety of matters, including contract negotiation and interpretation, customer claims, risk and liability issues, and emerging issues in relevant regulatory frameworks. She also regularly evaluates government acquisition compliance, leading to the drafting and updating internal policies and procedures, and development and deployment of internal training programs. Although Niki currently practices in a traditional in-house role, her career path has taken many twists and turns. As a result, she advocates for and encourages law students to consider non-traditional legal-adjacent career paths. Widener University Commonwealth Law School is the Pennsylvania capital’s only law school, with three specialized centers of legal scholarship through its Law & Government Institute, Environmental Law and Sustainability Center, and Business Advising Program.

One of the joys of being a Widener Law Commonwealth student is meeting alumni. Gabriella Romeo ’21, Student Bar Association President, interviewed alumnus Steve Ryan ’07. In-person restrictions did not keep them from a fun and engaging interview. Steve, a Brooklyn, NY native turned Central Pennsylvanian, shared his legal journey beginning from his first days at Widener to his well-established career in Workers’ Compensation Law. Keeps your eyes out for a special appearance of Gabriella’s cat Mia and your ears open for Steve’s favorite Harrisburg Pizza joint.

Steve Ryan is an associate with Martin Law LLC who practices workers’ compensation law. The primary focus of his practice is on injured workers. He found a passion for this area of the law after observing the difficulties that many workers faced in the workers’ compensation system. In the Spring of 2015, Mr. Ryan became a certified specialist in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation by the PA Bar Association’s Section on Workers’ Compensation Law as authorized by the PA Supreme Court.

Mr. Ryan is an active member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice (PAJ), Dauphin County Bar Association, and the Pennsylvania Bar Association. He is an avid writer and has written on numerous topics from workers’ compensation in newspapers to fictional short stories.

Mr. Ryan received his law degree from Widener University School of Law in 2007. He received his undergraduate degree in English from Brooklyn College in 2002. During law school, he was a Senior Staff Member of the Widener Law Journal and highly involved in the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program (ITAP).
