Raymond K. Bryant is a trial lawyer and litigator emphasizing plaintiffs’ civil rights and police misconduct actions. Before coming to Denver, Raymond was a political campaign consultant, political activist, and teacher in various cities across the country. Raymond’s graduate work in the philosophy of education, legitimacy of government action, and civil and constitutional rights has helped hone his desire for justice; while recognizing that other people may need further convincing through lawsuits. Thus, Raymond’s legal practice reflects his belief that the law should be used as a sword, not just a shield, for everyday people to fight the violation of their rights — against those in power who abuse the public trust.
