Clients say...

"I want to thank you for helping me out of a very difficult situation and I will be more than happy to recommend you to my friends and family."


"Deian really helped keep me grounded... His compassion was amazing..."

"McBryde Law did a great job in taking my case and representing me throughout the whole case. I appreciate McBryde Law."

"Going through a divorce is never easy, but McBryde Law made sure I could understand what was happening every step of the way. I was able to ask specific questions and ask for follow-up on matters that were too complicated for me to handle myself. Deian McBryde was there for me every step of the process, and I now consider him a friend, not just a lawyer because he really does care about all his clients."

"Extremely pleased with the professionalism and sensitivity of Mr. McBryde. His character and demeanor are truly above reproach."

"Deian is an excellent communicator professional and resourceful. He would often reach out and encourage me to ask questions, answered concerns, and kept me up to date. He was quick to help me adjust to using technology during social distancing. Setting up the client portal was easy and a great tool for detailed billing, messaging, and receiving documents. I was always confident that he was working on my case even during the dreaded wait times."

"Deian kept us on track with understanding and compassion and we got through it better than we had expected. We couldn't have done it without him."
