Mr. Bryan is an awesome Lawyer
Mr. Bryan is a really awesome lawyer. The first time I talked to him on the phone he was every good at asking me questions and when my husband Jeff and I went and talk to him face to face and told me that he was going to get my kids back for me and that he was going to file contempt charges on my ex husband and my ex mother in law for my kids bio daddy being around them against court orders and that was going to get me child support too. I walked out of his office like wow he is really awesome and knows his stuff and is really trustworthy.
