  • Patrick D McGuiness

    Bryan is one of the most thorough attorneys I know. No matter what the issue or type of law, Bryan does painstaking research on every matter and makes sure he knows an issue inside and out before he advises clients on their situations. It is a pleasure working with such a detail oriented person and I would be remiss if I did not recommend him to any potential client.
