Good Guy!
I am still working with Mr. Conneran-Weig, but so far he has been extremely helpful. I left one of those fast-talking infomercial-type lawyers for Mr. Conneran-Weig, and he is - well - normal. He reminds me of the way my father practiced law so I feel very comfortable with him, in the fact that he knows the law and is working for me and not only to make a buck. I also feel that no matter how my case may resolve, he will do his best.

Excellent Representation !!!!
I don't think there is anything Brian can't accomplish. I was very pleased, to the point that now he is taking care of all legal matters in my company. If you need an attorney who will fight for you make sure you call him.

Legal Writting Is Key
It is in my experience to not only have an attorney that is compassionate about your case and honest when it comes to the truth of the matter. It has recently come to my attention how important case law is to include into your case if you want to get anywhere. Brian has not only gained my trust but has went above and beyond when it was time to put in the work on the legal documents. I would highly recommend him to anyone who I cared about.
