About me

The Bryan Law Firm, L.L.C. was founded in 2001 by Douglas L. Bryan. Doug is originally from West Monroe, Louisiana and has practiced law in Central Louisiana since 1991. Doug is a graduate of West Monroe High School, Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana at Monroe) and Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans and is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Louisiana. 

His areas of practice are wide and varied. The firm handles personal injury and workers compensation matters (plaintiff and defense), domestic and commercial litigation, wills and probate, class action and multi-district litigation, real estate, corporation and L.L.C. formations, adoptions and Social Security claims. Chances are, if someone has a legal problem, our firm can help. More information can be found at the "areas of practice" link above. 

Our hourly fees are reasonable and competitive. We also handle certain types of cases on a contractual (contingency fee) and flat-fee basis. Examples are real estate transactions, personal injury, workers compensation, and social security claims. Doug also accepts referrals from several pre-paid legal plans, including Pre-Paid Legal Services, ARAG, Signature Legal, Hyatt Legal, Ceridian, CLC, and others. Of course, expenses and court costs are payable at the time they are accrued. 

If there are any questions regarding the services we can provide for you and your family, please do not hesitate to contact us. You may reach Doug via e-mail at, by telephone (318) 240-8282, toll-free at (866) 368-4279, or by facsimile (318) 240-0292.
