About Bryant

Learn Bryant’s areas of practice.


Attorney Bryant J. McFadden is quickly building a reputation as one of the most technically superior divorce and family practice lawyers in the State.

Literally saved my kids and I during my complex divorce case
I had hired Bryant McFadden for my divorce to take over the first attorney I hired, and had to let him go. Bryant very quickly got everything going, caught up, and fixed errors my previous lawyer made. It was an absolutely flawless transition. I never had to worry for a second. Bryant kept me informed at all times, was always on top of what needed to be done to finish my complicated case. He responded immediately to my emails and phone calls. Bryant was very kind, patient, understanding, and truly cared about what I wanted to happen. He listened to me, and stood up for me when I was at my weakest point. He never once talked down to me, and was always very understanding. He was always professional, prepared, prompt and organized. He was always early to court, communicated extremely well with the judge, opposing attorney and the GAL. Bryant McFadden literally saved me and my kids. In the end my (now) ex husband and I were all very happy with the end results. I never imagined the outcome being as great as it was- all thanks to Bryant! Bryant always had everything under control. I didn’t have to double check, because he followed through right away with everything, and his staff was always up to speed on where we were with the case, and was able to answer my questions. I would absolutely, definitely recommend Attorney Bryant McFadden or Gatzke Law to any law needs. He made a very horrible time in my life much easier!!

Super Supportive!
Bryant helped me through a difficult time in my life. I was dealing with an unexpected life change ("D") and was not looking forward to the process that was to come. He was there every step of the way, and never left me alone. Meaning, if I needed to talk to him, and he wasn't available, he would call back as soon as he could. He explained everything in detail to me, and if I didn't understand, he would not let it go until I did. He wanted to make sure I understood. Bryant was also like my cheerleader as I headed on my new path, while still waiting for this process to be over. If I felt down, it is as if he could sense it, and would say something that would pick me back up. He was very helpful, and personable. It really felt as if he cared, and I truly believed he did. I would recommend him to anyone that is going through a trying situation! Thank you so much Bryant, I so appreciate all your support you gave to me!

Family Proceedings
Attorney Bryant McFadden represented me as both a plaintiff and defendant in family issues post-divorce. He won both my cases and I only wish he was my attorney for my initial divorce hearing. He was very professional and realistic. He was able to give me sound advice on all of my post-divorce proceedings and I was very proud to have him represent me. I would recommend him to anyone who needs legal help.

Great experience working with Bryant
Bryant McFadden and the team at Gatzke Law office were always accommodating, timely, and patient as they helped our family establish a non-profit corporation for a memorial scholarship in rememberance of my father. They took the time to explain everything and offered a personal approach that always made us feel comfortable. I would reccomend Bryant for any legal services you may need.
