About D. Bryan Willis

When you hire an attorney you are seeking help with an important and sensitive matter affecting your life.

There are hundreds of lawyers in East Texas and I know it is difficult for clients to tell what makes one lawyer different from another.

While I can’t tell you about the other attorneys, I can tell you three reasons why I believe my firm is different.

Trust.  Communication.  Customer Service.

Trust and Communication.

Trust and communication are the two most important factors in the attorney-client relationship.  

I work hard to earn your trust from the moment you first contact my firm.  This means doing what I tell you I am going to do and getting it done in the time frame I give you.  This means explaining the legal process and what you can expect to happen in your case so there are minimal surprises.

I get to know each and every one of my clients personally.  I handle each and every matter from opening to close.  If you call, you will speak to me directly.  If I cannot answer, I will return your call or e-mail promptly, usually within a few hours.  

I respect the fact that clients trust me with some of the most important events in their lives and I will not abuse that trust.

Customer Service.

My firm focuses on customer service by responding promptly to client needs and leveraging technology to make sure I provide the most efficient service possible to my clients.  

You have enough going on in your life, the more convenience I can provide to you during your legal matter the less stress it will add to your life.

I use of an online client portal system that allows clients to review documents and notes on their matter at any time as well as stay up to date on important dates and deadlines in their case. 

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Richardson, Texas then attended college at the University of Texas in Austin where I was active in the University community.  While at the University, I served as President of the Longhorn Off-Road Club and played lacrosse for the University of Texas Lacrosse Team.

After graduating from UT, I attended law school at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where I excelled in the areas of litigation and business law.  I graduated from law school with honors in 2006.

After law school, I returned to Houston, Texas, where I opened my practice and married my wife, Courtney.   We have two children, a boy and girl.

In 2015, I relocated my practice to Tyler, Texas where I continued serving clients in the Houston area until I opened a full time office in Tyler in 2018.

In my free time, I enjoy running, fishing, and hunting as well as any other opportunity that comes along to get outside and enjoy life with my family.  I have run the East Texas half marathon in Nacogdoches as well as the Fresh 15k in Tyler.
