Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Joel Grant Hargis

    I am happy to endorse this lawyer. I have known Brian for years. We attended Max Gardner's Bankruptcy Coot Camp at Max's farm in North Carolina. In fact, we sat next to each other. Brian impressed me with not only his knowledge of the law, but also his disgust at how the financial and lending sector takes advantage over everyday folks. He is a topnotch attorney and person. Kentucky would do well to fill its bar with attorneys like Brian.

  • Tracy Lynn Hawkins

    Brian was a tremendous help when I was working a difficult case in a different jurisdiction. He provided valuable insight to defending clients on certain federal collection laws, and we ultimately prevailed. Thank you, Brian, for sharing your wealth of knowledge!
