Bryce W. Kartchner began his career at Robert J. Debry in 2013. He has a passion for defending people who are defenseless and injured because of an accident, and devotes many hours going over clients’ cases to ensure they receive the best representation.
During his time as an undergraduate student at Brigham Young University, Bryce was invested in managing and translating for hearing-impaired students as a voice captionist. Bryce excelled in academia. At BYU he was part of the National Collegiate Scholars and the Golden Key Honors Society. After graduating Cum Laude with a Political Science degree, he pursued law school at Gonzaga University.
During law school Bryce got involved with a number of extra-curricular activities including publishing articles and becoming an associate editor of the Gonzaga Journal of International Law. He spent much time competing in the Gonzaga moot court competition, along with being a member of the moot court honors council. Bryce was also chosen to be the class representative for the J. Reuben Clark Law Society.
Between semesters of law school Bryce spent his summers studying in Italy at Cagliari
School of Law, where he studied International, Italian and European Union Law. While in Italy he also took the opportunity to devote his free time to teaching free English classes to local children.
He has also completed a judicial externship, drafting bench briefs for corporation, contract and criminal law for the prosecuting attorney’s office.
Along with fulling duties as a law clerk for Judge Thomas Kay in the Second District Court and Judge Claudia Haycock in the Fourth District Court, Bryce volunteered at the St. Vincent Legal Clinic where he gave free legal advice to a homeless shelter.
After completing law school, Bryce worked for Judge Thomas Low and Christine Johnson in the Third District Court. Bryce was admitted to the Utah State Bar in 2012.

DeBry & Associates, focusing on many different areas of personal injury law, including wrongful death, personal injury, automobile accident, third-party workplace injuries, product liability, slip and fall, dog bite, nursing home abuse, and birth injuries.
Bryce understands the tragedy that can come to individuals because of others’ mistakes or the wrongdoing of insurance companies, which is why he works hard going over his clients’ cases and talking to them to better understand what legal action they need to get a fair compensation.
When Bryce is not at work he enjoys anything outdoors, such as hiking, mountain biking and playing tennis. Bryce is also an excellent composer, arranging beautiful pieces of choral music. He also loves playing piano, guitar and singing.
