Caring, Compassionate , Experienced Lawyer
Brian accommodated me on a last minute consultation and stayed after his business hours to go over every bit of details. He is very professional.

Highly Recommended
From the initial consultation to the signing of the consent order Brian was fantastic. He listened to my story, gave me multiple options on how we could proceed, and was always available to speak with me that same day when i needed him. What really stood out to to me the most was that Brian understood my financial limits, remembered all the small details of my case even when I would forget myself, he could speak on my behalf because he knew how i would want to answer or respond, and he always confirmed all letters, pleadings, and game plans before moving forward.

Well Done.
Brian was very professional and would follow-up on items in the timely manner. I personally wouldn't want to have any attorneys in my daily actions but if I would have to have one, I would pick Brian.
