Brian is approachable, easy to talk to, and friendly, all of which creates a relaxed and trusting attorney-client relationship with consistent and clear communication.
Your lawyer should be prepared to answer your questions and address your concerns. You should know what is happening in your case, and why. You should feel comfortable reaching out to your lawyer whenever you have a question or concern, and be able to have honest conversations. Your lawyer should be forthright about the realities of your case, without offering only doom-and-gloom cynicism or unwarranted promises. Brian is prepared to have those conversations with you, and to guide you through this process.
