Bryan Ballew

Senior Associate Attorney

"I was attracted to family law by the desire to help people and families through the most difficult time in their lives. The challenge, and the reward, of my work is to successfully guide and protect our clients through the challenges they face and toward a resolution that allows for a positive new beginning focused on making the most of their future.


I am a U.S. Navy veteran and have spent the majority of my adult life in the service of my country and others. I am a husband and extremely proud father. When I am not advocating on behalf of my clients, my time is spent with wife and daughter, camping, reading, and participating in the life of my church family."

Bryan Ballew

Bryan grew up in the town of Marshall, Texas. After graduating from high School, Bryan attended Stephen F. Austin State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. 

In 1995, Bryan enlisted in the United States Navy.  Bryan was designated as an electrician’s mate and began training in the rigorous Navy Nuclear Power Training Program.
