Bryan focuses his practice on civil litigation, with a focus on complex civil rights, governmental defense, and professional liability. Much of his practice entails defending government, law enforcement, and educational institutions in cases alleging violations of civil rights in state and federal court. Bryan also represents counties and municipalities in tort litigation and contract disputes, including employment, infrastructure, and construction disputes.

Bryan joined Heyl Royster in 2017 after receiving his J.D., summa cum laude, Order of the Coif, from the University of Illinois College of Law and B.S., magna cum laude, from the University of Illinois-Springfield. While in law school, Bryan was Managing Articles Editor for the University of Illinois Law Review, and was recognized by the Clinical Legal Education Association for his work in the College’s Civil Litigation Clinic. Prior to joining Heyl Royster, Bryan worked at the Champaign County States Attorney’s Office, a Chicago-based firm specializing in complex litigation, and the Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation.
