I have devoted my practice to family law and employment law.  I employ a client-centered approach to my practice. I developed this approach because I noticed that many lawyers simply instruct their clients without ever listening to what they have say.  I, first, listen to my clients. Then I collobrate with them, empower them with my legal knowledge and experience, and develop a course of action that serves their interest. 

I understand the complexities of employment cases, and emotional unrest that occurs in family law cases. My experience has equipped me to address both. I look forward to talking with you about your case.

More than a good lawyer
Brandon helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I was just fired from job, my bills were piling up, and fiancée had left me. When I chose to sue my employer for wrongful termination, Brandon devoted hours of time discussing my case with me. He evaluated all of my possible claims, and was very honest about the likelihood success. Brandon fought hard when the my former employer sought to discredit me, and fought even harder to show my supervisor's illegal motives. When time came to settle the case I felt well informed and vindicated.
