Managing Partner - Texas

Why He Cares
Bryan's dad is a southern preacher.  Bryan watched him help people through tough times and wanted to find his own way to do the same.  

He also loves history and politics.  This gave him a strong belief that everyone should have the same right to justice.  This includes having the right to trial by jury and giving a voice to those in need.   
To Bryan, lawyers are counselors in every sense of the word.  They defend the rights of their clients.  They also counsel them through life changing events and grief.  

Bryan firmly believes that empathy is one of the most important characteristics of a compassionate trial lawyer.
