Background

Bryce is a Senior Attorney at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, where he helps manage the firm’s complex litigation group representing individual and classes of victims of toxic exposures, product defects, civil rights violations, fraud, sexual harassment, automobile accidents and other catastrophic personal injuries and wrongful death.

In just his first few years as an attorney, Bryce has made a name for himself in Chicago and nationwide working on numerous high-profile mass tort cases. Bryce represented over 70 victims of the Las Vegas shooting, which along with thousands of others, settled their cases for $800 million. Bryce also represents users of Zantac now diagnosed with cancer around the country;  the Boeing airlines crash in Ethiopia; and police misconduct in Chicago.

In October 2019, Bryce was appointed as the Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel in the Sterigenics litigation by the Circuit Court of Cook County. In that position, he is the representative of the nearly two dozen firms representing victims in the litigation before the Court and with defendants’ counsel. In August 2020, he orchestrated one of the largest filings in Cook County history with over 700 individual lawsuits filed against Sterigenics and other defendants. He is now responsible for the coordination, organization, and management of all of the over 750 pending claims in the litigation.

Bryce has also tried cases. In March 2022, Bryce delivered the rebuttal closing argument in a wrongful death case against the City of Chicago for the wrongful death of an emotionally-disturbed person that resulted in a $742,500 verdict for his client.

Bryce has briefed, argued, and won numerous motions and appeals in state and federal courts. Most notably, in December 2018, he argued before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and reversed the District Court’s grant of summary judgment against his client. (Lewis v. City of Shreveport, et al., 765 Fed. Appx. 93 (5th Cir. 2019)).

Bryce has also obtained tens of millions of dollars in settlements for his clients, including: a $4.25 million wrongful death settlement against the City of Chicago for a police shooting; a $4 million wrongful death settlement for a workplace toxic exposure; a $2.1 million settlement against the Archdiocese of Chicago for the sexual abuse of a minor child; a $2.25 million settlement against a multi-purpose arena in a premises liability case that resulted in a client suffering a fractured ankle and CRPS; and a $610,000 settlement on behalf of a client with a herniated disc due to an automobile collision.
