Bryan William Phillips III
Partner Bryan William Phillips III graduated from Sam Houston State University with a B.S. in Political Science and a minor in legal studies. In his time at SHSU, Bryan served as the VP of Operations for an Organization called LEAP (Law, Engagement, And Politics), formerly known as The Junior Fellows, in which he assisted in coordinating and hosting many educational opportunities for students and the public. One such of these events that he is particularly proud of was hosting the Tenth Court of Appeals on SHSU’s campus that heard oral arguments for four cases before several hundred spectators. Outside of LEAP, he worked under a Professor on research studying civic engagement at the local level. From there, Bryan would be listed as a co-author and would go on to co-present the findings at an academic conference. Finally, towards the end of his undergrad career, Bryan was selected by the Faculty of the Political Science Department to be recognized by The College of Humanities and Social Sciences as an “Outstanding Student in Political Science.” Always fascinated at the intersection of politics and law, Bryan went to work as a Policy Analyst for a non-profit organization called Texas Action, which was at the time the sister organization to the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a public-policy economic thinktank in Texas. There he evaluated and researched legislation concerning businesses and property owners, and he would educate and advise members of the Texas Legislature on the effects of proposed legislation to be voted on. It was only a matter of time before Bryan would go to Law School, and he did just that, when he attended South Texas College of Law Houston where he received a CALI Award for Legal Excellence in Contract Negotiation and Drafting. Moreover, he remained active on campus by serving as Secretary of The Federalist Society STCL Chapter. Bryan is passionate about real estate law and handles the transactional work on the corporate arm of the Firm.
