  • Michael Bruce Ware

    I Fully endorse this lawyer. I have been on the opposing side with Brian on many occasions. He has always demonstrated a quick ability to analyze the case and present his side in the best format to bolster his strengths. His demeanor has always remained very professional and curteous to counsel, as well as all involved, while still demonstrating his confidence on his position. There is no doubt that Brian will be a extreme benefit to any client who has the priviledge to have him as counsel.
