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 Tyson is one of the most thorough and knowledgeable attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has an expansive understanding of employment law, ERISA, short term disability, long term disability and health insurance. In addition to providing outstanding representation to his clients, Bryan is also a valuable resource to other attorneys in the community. I have no hesitation in giving him the highest of ratings.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
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.
