Humble and kind
I needed a basic will and living will, Brian was very kind and his staff excellent. His office has a nice feeling and the process was very easy. He is unique, kind and knows what he is doing. If I ever need a lawyer for other reasons I defiantly would return.

Would Definitely Recommend
Mr. Piper recently represented me in a traffic violation case. Not only was he very accommodating of my schedule in that he worked it out that I wouldn't be required to appear in court, he also managed to get the case dismissed! Very satisfied!

My Experience
Brian has recently represented me in a child support case, I would highly recommend him to anyone! His knowledge and preparation work both influenced me and my judge. Don't let his silence intimate you, he's just taking it all in.

Very intelligent, friendly, fair and helpful!
I was a nervous wreck entering the office, custody, visitation, etc ......overwhelming. That feeling ended immediately. The receptionist was sooooo friendly....a genuine kind of friendly! Mr. Piper was patient, honest, understanding, and very knowledgeable. Its obvious he knows his stuff, & I will definitely return to him for any future legal needs. Thank you!!!!

Put the client's need FIRST!!!!!!
I went to Mr. Piper for information and advice for my divorce. He was very kind and helpful. He explained everything and allowed me to ask as many questions until I was comfortable. Even though he is more than capable in handling my situation, for the best results, I would need to use another lawyer in another state. And that's what he adviced me to do, even though that meant not retaining me as a client.

A Job Well Done!
It was again my pleasure to appoint Brian as my attorney in a recent case brought against me. Brian did an excellent job for me during my original divorce in 1998. So recently I again called upon him to represent me in a termination of alimony case initiated by my ex-husband. Brian did an outstanding job for me. He definitely know what he is doing. How grateful and relief I am to know that Brian’s excellent work caused the proceedings to ended in my favor. When asked for a name of a good lawyer be assured your name will come highly recommended. A job well done! Thanks again, Maria

Kind. Professional. Honest. Thank you for taking care of a few details that others may not have ...that meant the world to me. The Dissolution process was made very simple with your help.

Can't ask for any better..
Mr Piper handled a case for me some years ago. Since that time I have referred many other people to him. As in my case I got everything I wanted as so did the people I have referred to him. He is very good at calling you back and will take the time to answer any questions you may have. On a scale of one to ten I would say he is a twelve. Never in my life have I saw such an honest lawyer. I trust i will never need a lawyer again but if i do i will be at his door step. He is the best by far!!!

Divorce and separation Attorney | Mar 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Piper and I do not practice in the same areas of law, so it is relatively rarely that I come upon one of his Avvo responses. Like Mr. Piper, however, I practice in an area of law where the clients we meet with are going through a difficult time in their lives. One of the greatest joys of this practice is being able to help such people out. You can tell from reviewing Brian's profile and his client reviews, that the people he helps are very passionate in their satisfaction with his services. People commented again and again about how Brian "really listened" to them. Part of being a good counselor is listening to your clients. Mr. Piper is someone who not only listens, but also gets results and clearly helps his clients through difficult legal circumstances. I am happy to endorse him and his services. James Frederick"
