Attorney Awards


My goal is to find the quickest, most practical solution to my clients’ problems, whether that be hard fought litigation or a reasonable resolution. My broad experience makes me uniquely qualified to pursue this goal.


Kirk Bryant practiced law in a small county for fifteen years, which required that he become a legal Jack-of-all-trades. And it’s that background that gives him extensive and varied experience in multiple litigation fields including personal injury, family law, probate litigation, real estate litigation and commercial litigation. He also has experience working with oil & gas matters including lease and contract disputes and title and leasing matters.

As a result of his wide background, Kirk is able to approach client problems from many angles to find a practical solution while taking into account the interplay of many different areas of law. All about bottom-line analysis, Kirk is skilled at helping people see the cost/benefit of the best course of legal action
