Jay O’Bryant is a natural storyteller and passionate advocate. As an attorney, he advocates for his clients by telling their stories in the best way to achieve their goals.

Whether writing a brief or arguing in court, Jay understands that success or failure can often hinge on a single detail. As a playwright, actor, and former English major, Jay is seasoned in the detail-oriented preparation necessary to litigate a case.

Keeping their best interests front and center, Jay always seeks to end matters as expeditiously as possible for his clients. Still, he is ready to carry a case as far as it needs to go to benefit them most.
