Brian was my attorney for my divorce in 2016. Brian was outstanding. Brian is experienced and he navigated all the legal processes with great skill.
However, what I believe makes Brian an exceptional lawyer is his holistic approach to the entire process I had to go through. Brian started by educating me so I would not be surprised by the various stages. He demonstrated great skill and great empathy in supporting me during tough times and helping me understand when we were dealing with emotional issues versus legal issues.
He was sensitive to the cost of the divorce. He gave accurate assessments of options. Sometimes being right is not cost effective. He helped me make the right, small compromises to facilitate a more rapid settlement at a reasonable cost. He included me every step of the way.
Finally, I was proud to have him represent me. He treated everyone, the judge, my spouse, her attorney and me with great respect.

I was told before I started the Divorce process that Divorce is not fun. It is painful, awful, expensive, and you generally feel bad and beat up during the whole process.
When I hired Brian Urban, I was hoping that those things listed above would not be 100% true. To my surprise, the Divorce process was not as painful as I thought it would be. It was still somewhat costly, but how else can people who can’t see eye to eye any more figure things out?
I would simply say the above can be achieved by hiring a lawyer who understands the feelings and emotions that are present during the divorce process. And by having an attorney who is available;
to discuss ideas with, to consult with, and to generally assist with the legal as well as the other aspects of the divorce process. Brian also returned all calls and at times when he was out of town or unavailable, I felt that Joan, in his office, was also available to talk with me and help me cope with the process.
The bottom line is Brian helped guide me through the process and never lost sight of the end goal: to complete the divorce as painlessly and inexpensively as possible without causing both sides to feel horrible.
I would highly recommend anyone contemplating this process consider hiring Brian Urban. I am very glad I did.

It's so rare in today's society that you experience excellence in service. Not so with Brian Urban. Brian was responsive, attentive, and extremely personable. I could contact Brian anytime of the week or day and he would get back with me almost immediately. A collaborative process is still a very emotional time. Brian offered guidance, was empathetic and looked out for my needs!
