Simplification
My situation is one where there are 10,000 things going on. Mr. Thibault was able to help me get straight to the heart of the matter in a very short period of time. He helped me wrap my head around it all as well, to help me stay focused when the questions start coming. :)

solid representation and results
Hired Brook to help me navigate a "complicated" auto accident. He was able to formulate a plan for our defense and was able to sway the Judge to dispense a more lenient sentence. Brook presented our case and circumstances in a logical, and intelligent manner that gave us the results were we hoping for.

Only lawyer you'll Need
Brook took me as a client for a custody and child support case. He had his first meeting with me and right away I had to hire him. He listened, asked questions and proposed solutions. In the courtroom he was a magician. He knew the questions to ask and when to ask them. Got results I could have only dreamt of. After using 3 other attorney's I can assure you he will be the only one I use.

Malicious Wounding Case
Brook is just an awesome guy and he helped me get the best result I could ever imagine. He helped the judge see my case was self defense and was able to get my case dismissed before it went to trial. He knows his way around a courtroom and is an expert at cross examining someone accusing you of someone and just awesome. I can't say enough about him as an attorney and a person.
