It's so rare in today's society that you experience excellence in service. Not so with Brian Urban. Brian was responsive, attentive, and extremely personable. I could contact Brian anytime of the week or day and he would get back with me almost immediately. A collaborative process is still a very emotional time. Brian offered guidance, was empathetic and looked out for my needs!
Brian and his staff were extremely compassionate, responsive, and professional. Brian was always well prepared and made sure I was prepared, too. His calm nature kept meetings from getting too heated or emotional. It has been one year since my divorce was finalized and my former spouse and I are amicable and the kids are thriving. We live in the same small city, and see each other regularly. Healing is well under way, largely because of the new ways of interacting we learned through the collaborative process.
Brian is smart, compassionate and strategic. His commitment to the collaborative process helps to ensure equitable outcomes for all parties — and improves the prospects for long-term harmony.
I hired Brian Urban for a post-decree matter which turned to litigation. Brian's expert guidance and realistic expectations helped me to feel at ease for both the process and the outcome. Brian kept me confident that an equitable resolution could be met and to trust in his course of action. He is patient, extremely thorough and sincerely cares for his clients and the children involved. He always acts in their best interest.
Brian Urban is committed to Collaborative Law as an alternative for those couples who have decided to end their marriage. When looking back on my experience of hiring Brian to represent me, I realize that not only did Brian help me achieve a fair and equitable divorce, but I was able to participate in all the decision making after the knowledge that I gained from Brian's suggestions to educate myself in the areas of communication, collaborative divorce and being detail oriented with all information that I had to provide to him. Brian expects his clients to participate: to do what he asks so that he can provide the best possible representation in each and every aspect of the proceedings. His goal is to make sure that his clients achieve their goal. I have nothing but positive things to say about Brian and his staff, who always made me feel that I was an important client. My questions/concerns were always answered in a timely manner. I know that I can still contact Brian with any concern dealing with the divorce and will receive a response from him.
I hired Brian as my collaborative divorce attorney. He was extremely competent and knowledgeable and kept me informed on all fronts. He was caring and compassionate at the right times, taking into consideration the emotions that present themselves while transitioning through a divorce. He provided me with insight and tools to help communicate and resolve conflict effectively, as well as provided a safe environment. Brian was prompt in his communication with me, and always took the time to address any and all concerns. His office staff was impeccable, compassionate, and diligent. I would highly recommend Brian and his practice to anyone who wants to transition through divorce in the healthiest way, with themselves and their children as their primary concern.
Brian is a consummate professional. He is adept at efficiently achieving his client's goals while minimizing conflict, which is exactly what I asked him to do. When the situation required him to be tough, he was tough as well. As I am a lawyer myself, this review is high praise. I recommend him without reservation.
