I concentrate in Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability, Trucking and Auto Accidents. I am recognized in North Carolina and nationally as an advocate of workers who are injured on the job. I was appointed in July 2002 to serve on the board of directors of the Workers Injury Law & Advocacy Group (WILG). I am also a past council member of the N.C. Bar Association Workers Compensation Section.
In 2006 the North Carolina State Bar certified me as a specialist in Social Security Disability Law and re-certified me in 2012. I handle Social Security Disability and SSI claims from the initial application through US Federal District Court. My firm is one of only a handful that handles claims through the Federal Court level.
I am also a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum where membership is limited to attorneys who have million dollar settlemetns and/or a verdict in excess of one million dollars. Fewer than 1% of all US lawyers are members.
I have also been selected for membership in The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers for North Carolina. Membership is obtained only through special invitation.
I believe that every client should have full access to their attorney, be kept informed regarding the status of their case and that phone calls/emails be returned in a timely manner. I am very prooud to represent and fight for the rights of the injured and disabled to level the playing field against insurance companies, employers, corporations and government agencies.
Licensed since 1997
I endorse Brian. I have know Brian since law school. He was a top performing law student who everyone knew would have great success in the practice of law. His reputation for professionalism and high performance in his areas of practice are known throughout the state. I would do not hesitate to refer a worker's compensation client to him. He is top flight and of the highest ethical order.
