Attorney Profile

The founder of Bryant Law Center P.S.C., Mark P. Bryant divides his practice between complex personal injury and wrongful death litigation and criminal defense matters. Based in Paducah, Kentucky, he represents clients throughout the commonwealth and across the country. Admitted to practice in Kentucky since 1973, Mr. Bryant is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky and the U.S. Court of Appeals, for the 6th Circuit, and he has also appeared pro hac vice in other jurisdictions.

In his personal injury and wrongful death practice, Mr. Bryant has handled multidistrict litigation and class actions as well as individual lawsuits. His cases have included defective drugs and medical devices, truck and other motor vehicle crashes, train derailments, and workplace accidents, among many other types of incidents. During his career, Mr. Bryant has been able to obtain millions of dollars in compensation for his plaintiff clients, often, through settlements that he has negotiated with defendants and their insurance carries but, in other cases, as a result of jury awards at the end of lengthy trials.

Mr. Bryant started his career as a criminal defense attorney, representing people who had been charged with having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses, and he was successful in obtaining positive results on their behalf through dismissals, acquittals, and the negotiation of favorable plea agreements with the prosecutor. His practice in this area of the law is now generally limited to advocating for clients who are facing the death penalty after allegedly committing murder. Mr. Bryant’s successful track record in all of his professional endeavors has long earned him a great deal of recognition from his colleagues, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and being named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100.

David recently obtained a $1.9 million dollar verdict on behalf of a truck driver who was injured in a loading accident. He has also been instrumental in developing a number of class action lawsuits in Kentucky and across the country.
  • Jenkins v. MISA Metals, Inc. — David received a $1.9 million verdict on behalf of his client, who was injured after a steel coil weighing several tons shifted on the bed of a truck, crushing his hand and resulting in the amputation of several fingers and much of his hand. The jury found the defendant liable because it required David’s client, a truck driver, to participate in the loading of the steel coils onto the bed of truck, an extremely dangerous process that ultimately resulted in severe and permanent injuries.
  • In re: Roundup Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2741) – David represents over 100 individuals in state and federal court who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of use of and exposure to the toxic weed killer Roundup.

Milburn Chapel Cumberland Presbyterian Church, et al. – David represented twin sisters who were the victims of sexual abuse at the hands of the youth minister in their church in western Kentucky.  One of the girls became pregnant as a result of the abuse.  David was able to develop evidence that the church and its governing bodies were negligent in the oversight of the youth minister, thus creating an environment where abuse was possible.  The parties reached a confidential settlement.
  • Brandy Sigman, et al. v. CSX Transportation, Inc. – David was one of a team of lawyers representing the residents of the small West Virginia town of Mt. Carbon who were evacuated from their homes following the derailment and explosion of a CSX train carrying highly flammable Bakken crude oil.  The ensuing fires burned for days and forced the evacuation of over 300 families.  David and the team were able to reach a confidential settlement with CSX on behalf of the evacuated residents.
