    I contacted Brian when a Clark County client of mine was in trouble in Benton County. Brian timely responded to me regarding the case- discussed case options and greatly assisted the client in Benton County. I will happily refer future DUI/ DP Revocation matters in the Tri Cities to Brian in the future.
