Awesome Lawyer
I want to say Attorney Brian McCann and his staff are awesome. I was hesitant to let him take my case because of the long distance. I started looking online for attorneys and spoke to many. What made Brian unique was the time he took with me on the phone he was not rushing me to get to the point of the case he let me say everything I wanted to say, other lawyers just did not want to hear everything they wanted just the reason of me calling them. I am in a different state but he heard me out without hesitation he started working on my case and within a week and a half case closed. I would recommend him to anyone he was on top of everything and takes the time to thoroughly listen to you.

When you need to win!
Brian's law firm took the finest care of my case. I was floundering for 3 years with another attorney until I was recommended to Cavalli and McCann. From day one, Brian demonstrated competence and a sincere thoughtfulness that allowed me to focus on what was necessary and not stress out over what wasn't. There were a lot of factors in my case and I stood to lose everything. I lost nothing!! His legal knowledge, practical common sense and understanding of the court and the players really paid off.

Superb family law attorney!
Brian is undoubtedly one of the best local attorneys in his field. He is well known and highly respected by the family judges and the opposing attorneys in the area. Brian has been passionate about my case and has protected the best interests of my children for several years. I highly recommend him to anyone that may be facing an aggressive spouse.
