If you have heard about me from someone else, I’m glad you came to this website to meet me. If you stumbled upon me by chance, maybe this could be serendipity. You should keep reading! For those who know me already... good to see you again!
My name is Kellen Bryant. The “R.” before my name is for my first name, Robert, which is both my grandfathers’ first name and one uncle’s name. For some reason, my parents decided to call me by my middle name, Kellen. It’s an Irish-sounding name (sadly, the Irish locals never heard of it when I traveled there), and I was really named after a football player. R. Kellen Bryant sounds like a fairly strong attorney name, doesn’t it? That’s what I went with.
I grew up in Jacksonville (since 8th grade). I live here with my wife, Megan. She’s a 4th-grade teacher. We let a little tricolor beagle named Leroy live with us too. (No kids... yet). I’ve been blessed to have them in my life. I attend Mandarin Presbyterian Church. I play soccer and spend time with my family when I’m not practicing law.
In person, you may notice that I have a bit of energy because I do and pursue what I love. I’ve been like this since high school. I graduated college cum laude in 3 years at FSU (no jokes gator fans). I then attended Stetson Law School and graduated cum laude at Stetson as well -- in the top 20% of my class. I also worked for appellate and federal judges, and a large law firm while at Stetson. I spent two years working at a small litigation firm after law school and learned that I’m not passionate about arguing in court and suing general contractors. I love meeting with clients and their families and researching the law.
I enjoy teaching. You're welcome to attend my bi-weekly estate planning and elder care workshops (click to learn more).
I love writing. I wrote a book, which you can find on Amazon, How to Hire the Right Estate Planning Attorney at a Fair Price
Since starting in 2009, my goal is to educate families about the legal issues affecting them.
All cases are different, so don’t be led astray. I help families with asset protection strategies that have worked for others and have worked for my clients. Nothing about what I do is “cookie cutter,” the final work product for my clients is not done through simple fill in the blank forms that you find in the supply goods shop or online. Nope.
The goal is customization because all families are different. Without customization, you have those horrible estate stories you hear about.
I have been annoyed by poor customer service. I’ve hired small businesses and large. I’ve worked for small businesses and large. After having waited tables and been financially dependent on the service I provide, that experience has translated to my law practice. Emails and calls are returned within 24 business hours. Flat fees are customary with 90% of my families. When hired, we set all needed future appointments with me as far ahead of time so that your needs are met orderly.
Go ahead and download one of my four educational guides. If you are ready to call, you can reach me at (904) 470-2300.
I hope to meet you soon!
With kind regards and counsel,
