  • Linda Calderon Garrett

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Bryan is timeless and old school in that he truly cares about his clients. I have worked with Mr. Bryan for many years and have been both amazed and impressed with the level of respect the judges in the Bay Area afford to Mr. Bryan. Mr. Bryan also teaches many continuing legal education courses (CLE) to attorneys and is respected by many of his peers. Mr. Bryan is also a designated "SuperLawyer."
