Bryan is running for Congress to fight for middle-class families, women, children, and seniors. Growing up in a house with two public school teachers, Bryan learned the value of hard work and the benefits that come from a great public education.
Bryan attended public schools his whole life and earned an academic scholarship to UCLA. He then took out student loans to attend Yale Law School, where he represented tenants who were being taken advantage of by unscrupulous landlords. After graduating, Bryan started his career by going into public service and working for a United States federal judge on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, giving him firsthand experience with our broken immigration and criminal justice systems. For the last eight years, Bryan has practiced as an attorney in Southern California taking on big banks, insurance companies, and corporations for screwing people over since the financial collapse.
Throughout his career, Bryan has seen a system in which far too many banks and corporations take advantage of the people they’re supposed to serve – either because they know they won’t get caught, or, even worse, because career politicians have written the rules to let corporate special interests get richer at the expense of the middle class. Bryan is running for Congress because it’s time we rip up the old rules, reign in the corporate special interests, and build a new system where hardworking Americans come first. Bryan will fight for an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthiest few.
Bryan lives in Santa Clarita, California with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney in the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
