Excellent
I hired Mr. Dunivan to represent me in a real estate contract issue. The case was settled within a week! He was quick to return all phone calls and emails. He is very honest and his fees were very fair. I highly recommend Mr. Dunivan.

I don't have enough wonderful words and praises for Bryant Dunivan
Succinctly put, Braynt Dunivan has saved me from financial ruin. Not only was he copiously knowledgeable and skilled to accomplish this result, Bryant was also exceptionally kind, extremely compassionate and very patient with me during the entire process. Whenever I spoke with Bryant, I felt that he was treating me the same as he would be treating a loving member of his own immediate family . Bryant's overall understanding of his law specialty along with his wisdom is abundant, and he uses both of them wisely. Of all the attorney's I've hired during my life, Bryant is head and shoulders above the rest in his field of expertise in every possible way. Needless to say, you are indeed fortunate if Bryan Dunivan takes on your case.

Bryant is wise beyond his years. He was swift and explained everything to me because I know 0 about the legal.

Very pleased!
I thought my foreclosure was behind me, especially since I was never served the original summons. Unfortunately, a bottom feeder purchased the debt and tried to collect on it. Bryant to the rescue!!! The debt collector was forced to admit they were in the wrong and dropped the case. His office is great to deal with and their communication with me was always available. I highly recommend him.

Attorney
I hired Bryant Dunivan and after paying him $110.00 to tell him my legal problems, he told me that I had a good chance for a good outcome. I then gave him a retainer fee to start the case; but after he took my money he became unavailable and I could only talk to his legal secretary and would not return my calls or emails until the day before the hearing....I lost the case and my money. This attorney hides behind his legal secretary because he knows that he can't stand up to his commitments on your case. BE CAREFUL
