Brian was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He was blessed to have two loving, amazing, and hard-working parents that provided excellent role models for him. Due to the values instilled by his parents, Brian has a strong desire to help those in need and to be a positive influence in the lives of others and in the community. It didn’t take long for Brian to realize that he wanted to be an attorney when he grew up. Brian has always had strong opinions and has never been afraid to speak his mind. Even as a child and teenager, Brian loved to argue in support of causes he cared about and was passionate in defense of people that were close to him. Brian’s father has joked with him countless times over the years that he would argue with a fence post. During high school, Brian joined the debate team and began to work towards his dream of becoming an attorney. During his junior and senior years of high school, Brian was selected to travel to Boston, Massachusetts to compete in debate competitions at Harvard University. Brian graduated with honors from Roosevelt High School in 1994.
With the assistance of an academic scholarship, Brian attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he majored in management and received a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1998. While attending Baylor University, Brian met the love of his life, Kristine Wallace, in the fall of 1995. Brian and Kristine dated during the remainder of their college years and while Brian attended Baylor Law School. Brian knew he wanted to marry Kristine for quite some time, but he also wanted to complete his education and be sure that he could financially provide for Kristine and the children they hoped to have one day. As Kristine would say, Brian “finally” proposed in the summer of 1999. Brian graduated from Baylor Law School and received his Juris Doctor in February of 2001.
After Brian was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in May of 2001, Brian and Kristine moved to San Antonio for Brian to begin his legal career. Brian began working as an associate attorney at Allen, Stein & Durbin, P.C. shortly after moving to San Antonio. Brian was fortunate to work for and learn from some excellent trial attorneys at this firm while he remained there until December of 2011. In January of 2012, Brian co-founded the law firm of Jacob Jordan, P.L.L.C. in San Antonio, Texas. In September of 2016, Brian founded the law firm of BSJ Law Group, P.L.L.C. also in San Antonio, Texas, and has served as its managing attorney from its founding up to the present. Under Brian’s leadership, BSJ Law Group, P.L.L.C. was proud to announce the opening of its second office location in Waco, Texas on July 1, 2018.
Brian has over 17 years of civil litigation experience providing representation to individuals, businesses, and insurance companies throughout Central and South Texas. Brian focuses his law practice primarily on personal injury, wrongful death, and construction dispute matters. Brian also represents telecommunications service providers against negligent excavators, contractors, subcontractors, builders, and other businesses that cause damage to underground and/or aerial telecommunications equipment. Brian is admitted to practice before all Texas state courts, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. Brian has successfully tried to verdict jury trials, involving a wide range of subject matter and alleged damages, in multiple venues throughout the State of Texas.
Brian believes that the practice of law is a calling, not just a profession. Brian strives to be a positive influence in the lives of his clients and further hopes that each client he serves will have a more positive view of the legal profession after his representation of them.
When Brian is not working, he loves spending time with his beautiful wife, Kristine, and their 3 children.
