  3. Libel and slander
    I will help you defend your reputation, particularly when it comes to online defamation. I have won multiple defamation cases. June 2019- $105,400 [jury trial] March 2021- $750,000 March 2021- $500,000 April 2021- $500,000 April 2021- $1,000,000

    5 years, 13 cases

  4. Litigation
    Experience with the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In May 2019 I won a $33,000 judgment as a matter of law the morning the jury trial was set to begin. In October 2019 I won $54,000 via summary judgment.

  5. Appeals
    Civil Appeals [especially consumer protection appeals], Extraordinary Writs [mandamus, procedendo, etc.] In 2020 I won an appeal for a client in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.

    5 years, 12 cases

In my 5 most recent [plaintiff's side] defamation cases I obtained judgments in a combined total of approximately $2,900,000 dollars.


I participated in the Civil litigation clinic during my time in law school and handled actual cases for actual clients from the community.


I successfully represented myself in approximately 60 consumer actions from 2013 to 2018 and have extensive experience with the rules of civil procedure, the rules of appellate procedure, and the rules of superintendence, as well as the substantive law of consumer protection statutes. I have done my own appellate work and extraordinary writs (original complaint in procedendo). I have successfully represented clients in appeals in state and federal appellate courts.


I have successfully obtained remand of cases that were removed to federal court and gotten the cases back to state court.


I passed the Ohio bar exam on my first attempt with a score in the 95th percentile on the MBE (top 5% in the state on the multiple choice component) and the 84th percentile overall (top 16% in the state overall). Immediately after passing the Ohio bar exam I went on to take the Michigan bar exam and passed on my first attempt.


Seasoned attorneys often contact me to consult on matters of civil procedure, pre-trial motion practice, general strategy, or consumer protection statutes.


I am eager and ready to put the skills I have developed over the last several years to work resolving your legal issues, particularly consumer issues. If you have a consumer issue I am more than willing to consult with you and assess the situation and determine whether there is a viable claim and if you retain my services I will dedicate myself to developing a strategy for resolving your claims to obtain your desired outcome and I will diligently and aggressively pursue this strategy.


On a personal note I enjoy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, kick-boxing, shooting [specifically long-range precision rifle shooting and pistol combatives], philosophy, politics, history, hiking, biking, traveling, orchestra, and theater.

Highly Recommended
Bryan Reo is highly recommended for legal services. I have known him for several years, at first as a college student in few a classes I taught. Since becoming a lawyer I have used Mr. Reo for legal consultations several times and have found him generous with his time, and decisive in his advice. He is able to explain the law with great clarity to the layman.

Bryan is an absolute beast in litigation. He will not hesitate to get his hands dirty and fight hard when the opposition decides to be difficult. Bryan is a friendly and reasonable guy, but he doesn't tolerate any BS from defense attorneys. My experience with Bryan as my attorney has been awesome. You want him on your team.

Excellent Lawyer
Do you remember the students in high school who knew way more than the teachers? That is Bryan. Bryan is an excellent attorney. He is well versed in the details of consumer protection statutes, particularly related to telecommunications. He is a real expert and I would say that he may be one of the most knowledgeable TCPA attorneys in the country. He handled my cases promptly and professionally.

Top Notch Attorney - Extremely Knowledgeable
As a victim of telecommunications harassment and invasion of privacy I had absolutely no idea where to begin. Bryan’s knowledge of tort and criminal law helped guide me on a solid strategy for resolution. I’m very grateful for his responsiveness and compassion for my situation.

Spectacular Consumer Protection Attorney
I had no idea where to begin with my consumer concerns, I only knew that I had been wronged and I felt there should be some way to resolve it but I wasn't sure how to do it or where to begin. Luckily I wound up in contact with Bryan Reo and I walked him through the facts of the situation and he knew all of the law and exactly what was what and what to do. His involvement resulted in almost immediate resolution of my situation. He was very attentive to detail and explained every aspect of my position to the business and the laws that supported my position. He didn't even need to file a lawsuit, he resolved everything in a few discussions with the business and I was completely satisfied with the result. Bryan kept me informed at each stage of the negotiations and gave me regular updates. He definitely knows consumer rights laws and he knows how to get the resolution that the client wants. I told him that I wanted him to resolve my situation and I preferred not to have to go into a lawsuit and he resolved everything within about two weeks. I would definitely go to Bryan if I had any future consumer issues and if the matter had to go into a lawsuit I would be confident with him as my lawyer to go to court.
