Brian was very helpful and kind. I battle anxiety and with everything going on I was even more anxious, but he was calming and considerate. (He even brought me a mask) He helped me with the paper work and he walked me through everything. I highly recommend him.

Aho Law Office - Great Service and outcome!
I was very happy with the end result of my case. Brian was always well prepared when representing me and he would return calls or emails within a day. He has great people skills and would listen to what I had to say to produce the proper legal documents needed in my case. He did all the necessary research needed to renew my judgment ( I was the petitioner and ex was the respondent). I was able to come to an agreement with the respondent that we both were happy with. He was creative in his approach which resulted a good settlement. I also feel that his rates and billing were both fair and honest. I would highly recommend Aho Law Office!

Unexpected Changes
In June my husband unexpectedly asked for a divorce. Brian was so amazing to help walk me through the of dos and don'ts of the initial separation and divorce process, filling out and filing the divorce paperwork, and was able to answer every question of the situation without hesitation and in a calm professional manner. He made the process easier for me and was able to help keep the tensions calm.

From the very start my call was returned surprisingly fast. Brian clearly explained the process on our first meeting and never once did i feel rushed or pressured to hire him. When i contacted him with questions he was extremely prompt with responses. Brian seemed very knowledgeable in my case. I would highly recommend him as an attorney. I can not say enough about how smoothly my case went due to Brian and his hard work.

Former Client
We hired Brian to defend our son - which is not his general area of practice. However, we heard that he had some experience with juveniles when he began practicing law. We were grateful we hired him! He did an outstanding job working with the County Attorney and had great rapport with the judge and we were amazed at his knowledge of an area of law he normally doesn't even practice. It is evident that he is experienced in the area of law and he has compassion and integrity. Excellent attributes to have in the field of an attorney.

An Outstanding Lawyer
Mr. Aho represented me in 2011 for my divorce. He was outstanding and represented me at the utmost ability. I was never afraid walking into the court room because I knew I had a lawyer who was fighting for me and my future. I am grateful to always refer Mr. Aho to anyone who is looking for a good lawyer.

Brian is a very kind and understanding person. He never made me feel embarrassed or stupid thru this process. I would highly recommend Brian for your bankruptcy needs. He makes it painless. His Para-Legal, Caty, is a wonderful addition to his practice as well.

Divorce Lawyer
Brian was a great help for me! I didn't originally want to hire a lawyer, but I'm very glad I did. There were a lot of things I didn't know about relating to a divorce. Brian was able to help me along with that. Not only did he have my best interest in mind, he was also very willing and cooperative with my ex and his lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and was always willing to answer any and all questions that I had (even during non-business hours). I would 100% recommend Brian if you are in need of his services. You won't be disappointed.

Brian Handled a Divorce of mine.
The divorce was over quick and easy. Brian handled My side of things but my Ex didn't hire a lawyer so in a sense he handled both sides. He wrote a fair settlement that spouse was willing to sign on the first try. That kept the costs down. His office is very impressive and easy to get to right off I-94 I don't ever plan on getting divorced again but if I did I'd call Brian.
