Thanks for taking a look at my profile.
Before becoming an attorney I served for 10 years in the United States Air Force as an Spanish Airborne Cryptologic Linguist. After nearly 2 years of training, I was stationed in the Republic of Panama for just over 3 years and flew over 2000 hours on C-130 Hercules aircraft as an enlisted crewmember. I spent the balance of my second enlistment in San Angelo, Texas, at the Cryptologic Technical Training Center, Goodfellow AFB, where I was the NCO in Charge of Air Force Cryptologic training. I was a Technical Sergant (E-6) and a Master Training Instructor when I got out.
My wife and I moved to Spokane, WA, where she worked for Hastings Entertainment and I attended Gonzaga University School of Law. We have been here ever since.
In addition to being a Zag Basketball Fan, I am a Third Degree Black Belt in American Kenpo. I was the Head Instructor and owner of Spokane Kenpo Karate, an affilliate of the American Kenpo Training Association for a number of years. I had to turn over the leadership of my school because of my work schedule.

David Partovi, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Bryan is great. Over the years he and I have consulted on criminal cases and opposed each other on family cases. He is an aggressive advocate, but also easy to contact and talk to. As a result, his clients get superior representation, but avoid expensive and unnecessary fights. I endorse him wholeheartedly.
