“I was injured in a work related accident and sustained enough damage that I knew I would be off weeks or possibly months.
My family advised me to seek an attorney and inquire about the unforeseen. I saw a Mark Bryant commercial on television about work related accidents and knew that was my sign.
I contacted the Bryant Law Firm and was greeted by a friendly voice and set up an appointment with Austin Kennedy. Austin met with me and my wife in the lobby, looked at me right in the eyes and gave me a firm handshake. He impressed me right off the bat.
He listened tentatively without ever interrupting, when I finished he immediately knew the proper course to take and precisely how make it custom for me.
Already at this point we were so impressed with his knowledge we felt comfortable with him and were convinced we made the perfect choice for our situation. Austin Kennady is a mild mannered, soft spoken gentleman with a calmness about him that is reassuring.
The words that come to my mind to describe Austin are Integrity, Hardworking, Loyal, Purpose Driven, and always Honest.
Austin worked diligently to get the Workman comp settlement. We were astonishingly pleased with the settlement and equally pleased with his performance I highly recommend this young man. I honestly think this man is special and blessed with many gifts.
This man has done great things for me and my family and I will always be grateful. Austin Kennady is brilliant.”
