Bryan L. CiyouBryan L. Ciyou is an attorney at Ciyou & Dixon, P.C. and has been engaged in criminal and civil ligation and appeals since 1994.  He earned his BA with distinction and graduated through the honors program, along with his JD, cum laude, at Indiana University.     

One of his key practice areas is firearms law where he represents or consults with a wide array of clients, including large regional and national law firms, to licensed manufacturers and dealers with criminal, regulatory or ATF compliance matters, gun show promoters and businesses with firearms legal issues, to individuals involved in deadly force encounters.  In addition, Mr. Ciyou is active in appealing firearms cases and serving as an expert witness in firearms and parts identification. Mr. Ciyou is actively involved in shooting sports and regularly trains at some of the country’s best facilities.  He is a frequent lecturer and often interviewed on firearms laws, trends, and proposed legislation.           

Mr. Ciyou has authored three books on Indiana and federal firearms law -- the Indiana Firearms Law Reference Manual and two editions of a new annual reference manual, Gun Laws By State. The latter compiles the tens of thousands of gun laws and driving concepts, and simplifies this complex interaction of local, state, and federal gun laws that bind citizens and law enforcement officers who carry firearms off duty in other states. He also recently completed a chapter in the book, Inside the Minds: Strategies for Defending Firearms Offense Charges (2013), published by Apastore Books, a Thomson Reuters business.
