  • Timothy W Emery

    Brian represented my client on an IP matter. He did so with brilliance and an eye towards practical problem solving. Brian is one of the most technically proficient attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with, yet he simultaneously has that rare ability to simplify a complex problem for a quick resolution. I strongly endorse this attorney. Anyone who has him on their side of a matter should count themselves very, very fortunate.

    My firm contacted Mr. Rowland for legal assistance with an estate issue involving real property in Jacksonville, FL. Throughout this case I have found Mr. Rowland to be an upmost professional: knowledgeable in his field, detailed in his contract drafting, prompt in his communications, reasonable in the associated negotiations, and overall a pleasure to work with. I would certainly contact Mr. Roland again and strongly recommend his services.
