Don't choose any other lawyer
An excellent lawyer and person. Brian Rounds and his team consisting of his wife Alexis, and Lindsay are amazing and will go way beyond what anyone could ask for. Don't go to any other lawyer in the Kingston area! You will not regret having him defend I know I never have or will. Thank you for everything you did for me Brian

I would recommend Bryan to anyone who can afford him!
Bryan and Lindsey are absolutely awesome. He's my husband's attorney and has been fighting tooth and nail to get him much less time than what the judge wants to give him. He's so experienced and much more so than the one that we hired prior, and knew about certain things that even the DA didn't know about when it came to getting a specific DA off of the case. If you are in trouble, this guy is your golden ticket. My husband is doing 16 months in jail instead of 1 1/3-3 or 4-7 yrs. He is also taking care of his parole matter. If you are in trouble and can afford a good attorney (he is NOT cheap by any means), then this is the guy you need to call.

Personal injury Attorney | May 02
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have been a trial lawyer in New York for 35 years, handling both personal injury and criminal cases, during which time I have dealt with Bryan Rounds and many other attorneys as opposing counsel. But Bryan stands out as the best of them."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Bryan is a great criminal defense lawyer for many reasons. The most important reason is that prosecutors, other attorneys, judges, and his clients all know that he is going to aggressively advocate for their rights and on their behalf. I've had the opportunity to know Bryan as an adversary, as a fellow defense attorney, and now a friend. He has been a great resource on the law as well as with the creativity with which he approaches cases. Anyone charged with a crime would be well served by working with Mr. Rounds."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Brian is an unbelievably talented criminal defense attorney."

"Bryan is a passionate and zealous defender of his client's rights when representing those who find themselves in the unfortunate position of being accused of a crime. Bryan will leave no stone unturned in his quest to obtain the absolute best results for his clients. A skilled advocate and seasoned trial attorney, a client can be very comfortable and confident sitting next to Bryan at the defense table in Court. Having collaborated with Him on several serious matters and having observed his work ethic first hand, I highly recommend and endorses Bryan for whatever criminal law representation one may need."
