Lakeland Family Law Attorney Heather Bryan

Heather Bryan is an experienced trial attorney.  Heather began her legal career at the Public Defender's Office for the Tenth Judicial Circuit, where she worked on misdemeanors, felonies, and appeals.  As a result, she knows how to navigate a Polk County courtroom.

Heather's passion for the courtroom was fueled by defending those whose rights had been compromised.  She understands the importance of protecting people's rights, especially rights regarding their own families.  No matter the allegations or circumstances of the case, every client deserves competent, aggressive, compassionate representation. 

Heather firmly believes that no one should be vilified because they are getting a divorce or splitting up from another person.  She stands ready to provide every client with zealous representation, and if the case requires it, Heather is dedicated to providing that person his or her day in court.
