  • Jack Christopher Dolance

    Brent Wear's accomplishments in the courtroom are impressive standing alone. He has established himself as one of the preeminent trial lawyers in this region. However, Brent is also a genuinely good guy. He enjoys teaching younger trial lawyers how to identify and handle potentially "big" cases. For example, although I'd never met Brent, I called him about a potential client's medical malpractice claim. He spent a considerable amount of his own time explaining the potential pros and cons of taking on the case, and I was impressed by his knowledge of this complex area of the law. I would highly recommend Brent Wear to anyone.
