Bryan D. Perkins || Attorney-at-Law
Bryan D. Perkins, the firm’s founder, owner, and namesake, was educated at the University of Texas at Austin (BBA with highest honors) and the University of Texas School of Law (JD with honors). He is a Certified Public Accountant, member of the Texas Bar, the Colorado Bar, the Family Law and Labor and Employment Law Sections of the Dallas Bar Association, the Family Law, Labor & Employment Law and Litigation Sections of the Texas Bar, the Bar Associations of the Fifth and Tenth Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the U S Tax Court.
Despite his business training and diverse practice area experience, Bryan considers himself first and foremost a trial lawyer.

In addition, he has prevailed at trial and in arbitration against negligence, intentional tort, statutory discrimination, deceptive trade practices and breach of contract claims; has obtained significant awards in favor of his clients in commercial litigation matters; and has successfully argued appellate matters before the federal Fifth Circuit and Texas state courts of appeal.
His reported cases include: Bonner v. Henderson, et. al., 147 F.3d 457 (5th Cir. 1998); In Re David’s Supermarkets, Inc., 43 S.W.3d 94 (Tex.App – Waco 2001, no writ); Carter v.
