Bryan believes strongly that individuals and small businesses deserve the same aggressive and vigorous representation that large corporations and insurance companies receive.
Bryan represents individuals in employee benefit matters throughout North Carolina, including long and short-term disability claims, health coverage claims, severance plans, executive compensation matters (such as bonus, stock and incentive plans), and retirement plans (including 401(k) plans, pension plans and ESOPs).
Bryan also represents individuals and small businesses in employment law matters, including issues related to termination of employees, discrimination, wage and hour compliance, non-competition and trade secret litigation, and severance/employment agreements.
Along with his partner, Matthew Marcellino, Bryan assists clients in personal injury and family law matters.

Bryan and I worked in the same law firm previously. He is one of the smartest, most down-to-earth lawyers that I know. He has a very practical approach that lends itself to resolving matters, but also has the skill, knowledge and experience that allow him to win in court. I do not hesitate to recommend him.
I’ve had the good fortune of knowing Bryan for more than twenty years. Through his work, Bryan has developed a deep knowledge of the law governing employee benefits, and he is always the first person I call when I have a question about employment law. We’ve worked on cases together, and I can tell you that he truly cares for his clients and takes their concerns to heart. It’s these insights that make him such an effective advocate, and I wholeheartedly recommend him today just as I have countless times in the past.
