Mr. Bryan served as a Municipal Court judge for two communities for a total of 12 years. He served as Assistant Solicitor for the Worth County State Court for 10 years, and presently serves as that Court’s Solicitor General.

Mr. Bryan also served in Georgia’s Army National Guard and was honorably discharged in 1976.
David is a wonderful attorney in my opinion. He really helped me and my family with the custody battle and child support issues of our oldest child. Along with that, the adoption process could not have went any smoother. He listened to everything we had to say, looked at all of our evidence, and he gave us his honest opinion of what we could and could not do. I will definitely use him for any future needs I might have.

In 2005 David Bryan fought my case for me and I got released from prison. He said he was going to fight hard to win my case and he did that. So now I can surely say David R. Bryan will fight hard to win.

Mr. Bryan helped me with my divorce/custody case. He always made me feel like he had time for me and was available to answer any questions I had. After consulting several other lawyers, I quickly realized this was not the norm. Mr. Bryan put a lot of time and effort into my case and got me the result I wanted. I am very pleased with my decision to have him represent me, and I 100% recommend him.

I approached David to help me with preparing an operating agreement/contract for my new business. Although I'm an experienced business professional, David was a tremendous help in identifying exactly what needed to be included in the contract and what steps to take to ensure my business investment as well as my personal finances would be protected. David has a very nice office, was very professional, organized, courteous, efficient and most importantly, cost-effective. I highly recommend David for legal assistance with any business transactions.
David Bryan is an extremely well qualified and gifted Attorney, he handled my professional law services with utmost professionalism and did so in a very timely manner with great communication skills. I would recommend him and his law office to anyone in South Georgia needing a great attorney that will be honest, forthright, reasonable in his fees and services, and most of all will do and recommend what's best for you his client not what's easiest or beneficial for him as your attorney. You wont find a better attorney in my opinion anywhere in South GA.

I contacted Attorney David Bryan to help with my divorce, and I explained to him that my situation would be a little more difficult, as I live in Louisiana and I'm in the military so I would not be able to travel back and forth often. Not only did Mr.Bryan prepare everything quickly and efficiently, but he always answered any questions that I had via email within the same business day. He made what could have been an extremely difficult situation very simple and trouble free. Mr. Bryan is a very devoted and proficient lawyer, and I would recommend him to anyone.

I contacted Attorney David Bryan regarding my divorce from my husband on the recommendation from a friend. I was told Mr. Bryan would be aggressive and thorough. I hired Mr. Bryan to represent me in my divorce, but, initially, Mr. Bryan and I just took some time to talk about what results I wanted in my divorce. When I finally decided it was time to move forward, Mr. Bryan quickly filed my complaint for divorce and set a hearing for a judge to hear the temporary issues. I was satisfied with the results of that hearing. Mr. Bryan then advised that we take depositions in my case. Mr. Bryan took my husband’s deposition and my husband’s attorney took mine. Mr. Bryan took all the time I needed to prepare me for the deposition. More importantly, at the trial of my divorce in January, 2017, Mr. Bryan used my husband’s testimony from his deposition extensively to raise doubt on many of my husband’s claims at trial. At the end of the trial, the judge asked that the attorneys submit written argument for his decision. I saw Mr. Bryan’s written argument before he submitted it to the judge. Mr. Bryan's written argument was over 8 pages long, single spaced, and he covered every essential detail to make his argument to the judge what we thought was fair in distribution of the marital assets and debts against what my husband was asking to receive. We received the Judge’s decision a few weeks later, and I was very pleased with Mr. Bryan’s efforts which resulted in my receiving very fair results.

My wife and I contacted Attorney David Bryan after a woman hit me with her car as I walked my dog in the neighborhood where I lived. Mr. Bryan came to my home for my first interview with him as I was bed-ridden with a fractured hip and other injuries. I am a college professor, and this injury meant that I would be out of work for several months. As I recovered over those many months, Mr. Bryan regularly conferred with me not only about my healing progress but also about the amount of pain I was enduring. In order to make a record of my pain as I recovered, early on Mr. Bryan obtained one of the Pain Management charts such as you see in doctor’s offices or in hospital rooms where you can pick a figure out of ten figures to indicate your pain level. Mr. Bryan regularly checked with me and made notes on my pain level at intervals. In my opinion, the documentation of my damages, especially my pain and suffering, accumulated by Mr. Bryan could have not been done better. In the end, Mr. Bryan used all of his documentation of my damages to formulate a settlement demand for the policy limits from the insurance company who insured the driver. To our relief, the insurance company seemed to pay without any hesitation. My wife and I are grateful to Mr. Bryan for all of his diligent efforts during an extremely difficult period of time in my life. As a result of his meticulous work, my wife and I quickly received compensatory monetary damages in order to pay back our costly medical expenses. Mr. Bryan is an eloquent writer that cogently conveyed the extent of my injuries and loss of life's pleasantries to the liability insurance company.
