FOR ALL OF YOUR FAMILY LAW NEEDS, I CAN HELP. I'LL GUIDE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

I’ve wanted to be a lawyer since I was a little kid and saw the film version of John Grisham’s The Pelican Brief. I had no idea I would be representing families across the state of Texas in difficult and emotional divorces.

Where did I start to get here? Not where you’d think. I was raised in Atascocita, Texas, a small suburb North of Houston. To be perfectly honest, I was born in Denver, Colorado, but I came to Texas as soon as I could when I was seven years old. I am one of four children – two natural-born children and two brothers who were adopted.

My dad was an engineer and my mom was a teacher. I am the only lawyer in my family. I attended the South Texas College of Law. When I started law school, I thought I would end up doing something with business and real estate because that was my background.

However, during law school, I took a job at a boutique family law litigation firm, where I would spend the first four years of my career. It was there I learned I had a passion for family law.

This really should not have come as a surprise to me because I have always placed a lot of importance on family.

During college, I chose to finish up my degree online because that allowed me to take care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer’s. Later, I would make a similar choice to go to South Texas College of Law because they had a night study program that allowed me to take care of her during the day until another family member could take over.

I got married right after law school, and later my wife gave birth to my son James. I love both with all my heart.

The start of our marriage was not an easy one. A few months after the wedding, my father passed away unexpectedly at the age of 70. Getting that phone call was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through in my life. But it made me a better person, a better lawyer, a better husband, and a better father to my son.

It was not until I had my own family that I realized how important this job could be. Since then, I have become an even better lawyer and an advocate for my clients.

A traditional law firm relies on paper, servers, and fax machines. The law firm clunks around, clients do not know what is going on with their case, and cases must settle for bad deals before court because the lawyers are either unprepared for what happens at the courthouse or are unaware of what happens at the courthouse. We do things differently. We are paperless, in the cloud, and efficient.

We are not the cheapest lawyers in town. But we offer high-end service in a way that makes sense. Our approach is newer, different, and better. I am a proud business owner and a proud father. My wife is pregnant with our second child, a son.

You are looking for a lawyer who will fight for you and understands what the stakes are. I'm a husband and a father of two. I have been to all those places you are now and will be. Those common experiences are what bond me with my clients.

What sets me apart? Hard work. Weekends? Holidays? Evenings? 5 am? Those are work times for me. I like to joke that I remember working a part-time job of 40 hours a week.

I am a certified member of the College of the State Bar of Texas, an honorary society established in 1982 by the Supreme Court of Texas. The College is comprised of lawyers who strive for the highest level of legal knowledge and skills through frequent participation in continuing education. Among its ranks are numerous leaders in the Texas legal field, including many judges. Less than 10% of all Texas lawyers qualify to become members of this organization.  

Throughout my legal career, I have represented numerous family law clients in divorce, custody, and property disputes. I am a dedicated advocate and have represented clients in all phases of litigation.

I advise clients on all aspects of family law, divorce, adoption, paternity, and mediation issues. I have experience in drafting marital property agreements, including pre- and post-nuptial agreements. My staff of attorneys and paralegals and I have devoted our careers to handling complex family law matters and defending families from false CPS allegations.   

 

We are based in Spring, Texas in North Houston, but we serve all of greater Houston, The Woodlands, Conroe, Kingwood, Atascocita, Montgomery, Galveston, Fort Bend, Waller, Liberty, Chambers, and Brazoria County areas. I am a member of the Houston Family Law Sections of the Houston Bar Association and am active in family law organizations in Texas.

Highly experienced and efficient
I interviewed five lawyers before choosing Bryan and was really happy with my decision. He was very experienced, knows custody/child support issues/processes very well. That's exactly what I needed - a good lawyer that knows what he is doing and makes good sense. I feel relieved having him by my side every step along this difficult journey.

Thankful for Mr. Fagan's help
Mr. Fagan is compassionate and caring. He listened to everything I had to say when other attorney's didn't. I needed help with my child custody matter. I contacted Mr. Fagan and he immediately made me feel better because he had a clear plan of action that I understood to seek custody of my son. I went with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan and am so glad I did. I have primary custody of my child and was able to get fair orders. My ex is very unreasonable so this was quite an accomplishment. Thank goodness for I found him. This is an excellent lawyer.

Amazing lawyer
I could not have asked for a more supportive, thorough and professional experience during the very difficult family court experience. Throughout my experience from initial consultation through the last day in court, I felt well taken care of and I was confident my children were always the focus of the case. Bryan leads a team of amazing lawyers and helped me have the courage to move forward. I am so grateful for not only the legal know how, but the care of my family.
