    Brian consistently achieves excellent results for his clients. He goes above and beyond to ensure that his clients receive the best representation possible, whether that's filing briefs, arguing in open court, or negotiating with prosecutors. Brian is hard-working and very bright. If I had a family member or friend in need of a criminal defense, Brian is who I would call.
