Work History

FisherBroyles, LLP

Partner

Feb 2014 - Present

FisherBroyles is a growing partnership of attorneys located in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New York and Palo Alto. Our full service firm includes partners specializing in all major practice areas.

FisherBroyles recognizes that the marketplace is dynamic, not static. Businesses either evolve or decline. The recent global recession, macro-economic pressures and micro-economic realities have only magnified and accelerated the changes and challenges facing businesses. Increasingly, businesses are demanding a better value proposition for their legal service needs — reasonable rates without sacrificing quality, timeliness and results. Most law firms haven’t changed their operating model for decades and are simply unable to deliver the efficiency that businesses now demand.

As service businesses, law firms also must evolve or decline. FisherBroyles recognized that dynamic early on and has not only embraced change but worked together with clients to create a service model that allows our professionals to deliver excellent, timely and cost effective legal services. In a nutshell, the FisherBroyles model offers enhanced value to clients seeking legal services for matters ranging from the mundane to the mission critical.

By cutting out the two most significant expenses of traditional law firms — exorbitant rent and salaried lawyers—FisherBroyles has the flexibility and willingness to enter into alternative billing arrangements with clients in order to tailor the scope of services we provide as well as the structure, amount and timing of fees we charge to meet the individual needs of our clients.

Judge Advocate General Corps, U.S. Navy

Staff Judge Advocate

Jun 1998 - Jan 2000

Bryan split his naval tour of duty to accept an offer to become the Staff Judge Advocate for the Navy base near Memphis, Tennessee. The Navy was converting the base from what had been a Naval Air Station since 1942 to an administrative campus hosting the Naval Recruiting Command and the Navy Personnel Command. Bryan represented the Navy almost full-time on numerous environmental issues involving CERCLA, RCLA, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. He represented the Navy with regard to the State of Tennessee’s CERCLA claim against the Navy associated with contamination of the air field, environmental remediation on the base, and in state and county board hearings on environmental issues.

Bryan also served as Special Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, prosecuting crimes occurring on the federal installation, as legal advisor to the base commander and base police, and as the legal advisor to the NCIS agents on station which included a cold-case unit.

Jun 1998 - Jan 2000

Judge Advocate General Corps, U.S. Navy

Trial Defense Counsel

Sep 1997 - Jun 1998

As a trial defense counsel, Bryan quickly developed a keen awareness for how pre-trial tactics and preparation sketch the blueprint for a sound strategic posture at trial. His first two trials, as a second-year lawyer, involved felony date-rape and child abuse charges in the high-profile area of Washington, D.C. He learned, early-on, to approach assignments with his mind open to the law and facts governing each individual case and to take advantage of his opponent’s failure to do so. Assumptions work only to hinder the prosecution or defense of a case.

Sep 1997 - Jun 1998

Judge Advocate General Corps, U.S. Navy

Disability Counsel, Navy Physical Evaluation Board

Sep 1996 - Sep 1997

Bryan began his career as a trial defense attorney in the U.S. Navy’s Judge Advocate General Corp. The Navy JAGC first assigned Bryan to the Navy Physical Evaluation Board at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland as a disability defense counsel. There, over the span of one year, Bryan represented over 350 sailors, marines and Navy or Marine officers in hearings before the Physical Evaluation Board. The Board determined whether those service members were fit for duty due to diagnosed disabilities, and, if so, whether the medical board which evaluated the disability assigned the appropriate disability rating for the service member’s condition or conditions. In this position, Bryan gained an extensive knowledge of and expertise with a wide variety of medical conditions and their impact upon a person’s employability and livelihood.
