|MI||Active And In Good Standing||1993||12/13/2014|
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Sean’s comment: “This very minor incident 20 years ago was a disagreement regarding my willingness to pursue a child custody matter for someone I discovered had a history of substance and physical abuse. I should have withdrawn sooner. That was my mistake, and I learned a valuable lesson from this incident. The Judge in this case even wrote a letter in my support. This incident had absolutely nothing to do with my estate planning practice, which has continued to be successful for over 2 decades.”

We hired Mr. O'Bryan because we saw that he been voted the best Attorney in our area by both the Flint Journal and the Davison Index. We were not disappointed. He established a trust agreement for us. He was thoughtful and took the time to explain everything to us. We would highly recommend him.

Attorney O'Bryan is an energetic and compassionate attorney. He is diligent in his work with a great staff of co-workers assisting him and the needs of the client. He works hard to stay abreast of all the new changes in the law. You will find him friendly and approachable for many problems one encounters about people, relationships and law. If he cannot solve the problem he knows who to refer to for a solution. I would not hesitate to send a family member to him. He is community oriented and well known for his skill in Estate Planning and Elder Law. He has a particular passion for Trusts. I have known him for over 10 years and I endorse this lawyer.
