Arthur H. Bryant is the Chairman of Public Justice, a national public interest law firm created by trial lawyers, supported by, and able to call on over 2,500 of the top plaintiffs’ lawyers in the country. Working with them, he and Public Justice use cutting-edge litigation to fight for consumers’ rights, workers’ rights, civil rights and liberties, environmental protection, the poor and the powerless, and access to justice for all. They are leading the battle in the nation’s courts against mandatory arbitration, federal preemption, class action bans and abuses, unjustified court secrecy, and other efforts to limit the rights to a jury trial and a day in court.
The National Law Journal has twice recognized Arthur as one the 100 Most Influential Attorneys in America. The Oregon Trial Lawyers Association has named its public service award the Arthur H. Bryant Public Justice Award. Arthur has also been honored by, among others, the American Association for Justice, the American Bar Association, Harvard Law School, the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, the New Jersey Association for Justice, and the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association. A graduate of Swarthmore College and Harvard Law School, he joined Public Justice (then Trial Lawyers for Public Justice) as its sole staff attorney in 1984, became its Executive Director in 1987, and became its Chairman last year.
