Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation are selected for their outstanding professional achievements and their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of the justice system throughout the state of Texas.
Election is a mark of distinction and recognition of Bryan’s contributions to the legal profession. Selection as a fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation is restricted to members of the State Bar of Texas. Each year one-third of one percent of State Bar members are invited to become Fellows.

Founded in 1965, the Texas Bar foundation is the largest charitably funded bar foundation in the country. To date, it has distributed more than $17 million throughout Texas to assist nonprofit organizations with a wide range of justice-related programs and services.
