| Hired Attorney
I have used Bryan for traffic related issues at least three times in the past. Bryan has always been prompt to reply to my phone calls and emails and has been excellent to work with. The results of each case were extremely favorable for me, Bryan either had the charges dismissed or reduced. I have since referred Bryan to business associates, friends and family members and as always Bryan has provided professional representation with great results. If ever in need of a lawyer I would recommend Bryan, he is easy to talk to, very up front about any fees and costs and is as professional as they get.
