You Want This Lawyer
My lawyer helped me win a case for a restraining order as well as time sharing with my children. He took my case last minute and helped me navigate my first ever court case. Brandon helped negotiate a deal that was more than I could have ever dreamed of. He listened to my concerns and was always willing to help answer any questions I had. He helped me understand the legal process and I would not have won this case without his representation.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Brandon is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy. I highly endorse this lawyer."
Family Attorney | Aug 16
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Brandon called me to introduce himself after he was hired to represent an opposing party. From the outset, I knew that that I could trust his word, and that we would work well together. Brandon showed a depth of knowledge about the law and was always willing to answer calls and messages for fine tweaking of a final stipulated agreement to dispose the case. Brandon's professionalism, and the obvious trust his client had in his work, allowed us to reasonably resolve the family law matter without unnecessarily wasting our client's time, money and emotion. I highly recommend Brandon. He is a pleasure to work with, but also poised and ready to battle it out when called upon to do so."
