Bryan J. McIntyre is an attorney at the firm Law Offices of Bryan J McIntyre, LLC, in Bloomington, Illinois. He focuses exclusively on criminal defense. He was profoundly influenced by the fact that some people, especially those from specific demographics, were treated differently by police enforcement than their more privileged peers when he was a child. He was deeply affected by his observations of people who were pursued by those who had never gone without basic necessities.

Mr. McIntyre worked as a waiter, carpenter, custodian and major appliance mechanic throughout his teens and early adulthood. His eventual goal was to become a prosecutor, so he decided to go back to school and get a legal degree. Someone, in his opinion, needed to be responsible when using prosecutorial discretion.

But as Mr. McIntyre progressed through law school and into practice, he saw that things were more nuanced than he had imagined. Many assistant prosecutors were constrained in their ability to make independent decisions, and those who spoke out against unconstitutional police practices faced potential retaliation.

During his time in law school, Mr. McIntyre was given some sound counsel from a retired judge who emphasized the importance of the public defender's position. He understood the value of public defenders in guaranteeing impartial trials, protecting fundamental rights, and fighting the unfair distribution of power in the justice system. He spent two years after graduating from the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign working as a clinical program supervisor.

Mr. McIntyre moved to Springfield in 2020 to work as an associate appellate defense on appeals throughout central Illinois. Despite the increased exposure to many types of courts that came with appellate work, he realized that there was little he could do to help his clients once verdicts and sentences had been given down. Recognizing his strengths as a litigator, he longed for a return to the courtroom.

Mr. McIntyre came to have great admiration for the job of public defenders and sympathy for the difficulties they encountered as a result of circumstances beyond their control. But he felt that as a solo attorney, he could give his clients honest counsel and aggressive representation. With every case he takes on, he works tirelessly to dispel any doubt about his steadfast and unparalleled dedication as an honest, passionate and tenacious attorney.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
