Bryan-DBryan E. Delius, Principal

Accomplished litigator fighting on behalf clients in Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge

Firm founder Bryan E. Delius started his law firm, Delius & McKenzie, PLLC, more than 20 years ago with one goal in mind: to offer East Tennessee residents and visitors the fighting chance they deserve in court. Born and raised here in Sevier County, and having lived here his entire life, Mr. Delius understands how the local, state and federal courts operate in the area, and knows that a successful case is one based in thorough preparation and a willingness to fight for what is right and just.

When not in the office, Mr. Delius spends time on the farm with his wife and daughter. He breeds and competes on the national level with registered Quarter Horses. Several of his horses have gone on to become world champions and carry PRCA cowboys to the pay window. Mr. Delius likes to compete in rodeos when time allows.

In addition to farming, he serves as an elected official to the Sevier County Legislative Body and is active in his church.
