Best attorney I have come across!
I would like to write another review of just how amazing once again Mr. Bryd has been in mine and my fiancé‘s life. This man always seems to amaze us. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Bryd. Honestly, he is more than just an attorney, he actually cares about the life of his clients, which is soooo important and hard to find. After 7 months, I contacted him for something and without any questions he jumped on it and had it done within 5 minutes, no joke. Now that is an A+ attorney in my book. If anybody I know is ever in need of an attorney he would be the first name out of my mouth, to go to. This man will not disappoint you. Very good man. Thank you again Brian for everything you have done and continue to do. Great attorney and Great work!

Incredible
If I can say one word about Brian, it’s incredible. He’s always available to answer any questions and he gives you the truth no matter what. He genuinely cared about my case and situation and he was in my corner fighting for me every step of the way.

Best Possible Outcome
Brian, is a great attorney but a above that he's a great person. Over course of six (6) weeks Brian always made himself available to answer questions. He consistently was on top of every issue and filled all necessary paperwork immediately. In my particular case where 7 grams of a substance were found, Brian convinced the state prosecutors to not prosecute the case after after passing 3 drug tests in a month. This was an outcome that no other defense attorney was able to offer or thought was possible. In summary Brian exceeded my expectation of what was possible m, not to mention my idea of what a great relationship a client and attorney can have.

Absolutely recommend!
Mr. Byrd always made himself available for questions/concerns, no matter the time or day. He did everything he could to ease my stress and concerns during the case, while aggressively engaging every avenue possible for a favorable outcome. We ultimately won our case. I fully recommend Mr. Byrd to anyone needing representation.

The best attorney in Central Florida
He is the ONLY attorney who answered me on new years eve. He talked to me for a good 45 minutes and was very honest with me. I'd prefer not to put my situation on here. But he made me feel like a friend.

Thank you Brian
I had a felony trespass and Mr Brian got it down to diversion. Thanks Brian. Hopefully I never need an attorney again..but I will reccomend you to all my people.
Posted by Jaycob | May 19, 2015
very humble for an attorney
He would always respond to my calls and texts within minutes. He did my family case for a set amount when everyone else was trying to charge me 200 and over an hour! I am going to recommend him to everyone I know. He even stayed up texting me very late one night. I felt my business was valued by him. Thanks again!
