In excellent hands
I recently bought a home and Brian was my attorney for the transaction. He was organized, efficient, and attentive; email responses were usually same day, and questions were answered simply and completely. The sellers and their representatives were somewhat disorganized and not nearly as prepared as they should have been for the closing; I never doubted Brian's counsel nor that my interests were his top priority. He guided me through that day, and everything resolved quietly in the end. I cannot recommend him enough.

Would Highly Recommend
I hired Brian as my closing attorney when I sold my home and bought a new home. Brian was extremely responsive and knowledgeable during the entire process. There were multiple issues that came out during the deal that were out of the norm (through no fault of Brian’s) and Brian did an excellent job explaining the options and finding solutions. I was constantly impressed with him and he got both deals closed despite all of the bumps in the road. I would recommend him to anyone I know.

Excellent and Efficient
I recently hired Brian to help me with my estate planning. He was extremely thorough and provided the care and professionalism that not many attorneys possess. He brought up questions and concerns that my prior estate attorney had not. I would gladly recommend Brian.

Brian is the man! A lot of these "terms" when buying or selling a house i was not familiar with and Brian was able to explain everything to me. He was always on top of things and i never had too worry. I 100% recommend Brian and would not want to go thru this process with anyone but him.

Amazing
Brian has been nothing but wonderful to work with. He's extremely knowledgeable and professional. He went above and beyond to help us close when we thought there was going to be a hold up on the sellers side. Thank you Brian!

Trustworthy, smart and very approachable.
Brian recently completed estate planning work (will/trust) for me and my family. He was incredibly patient with me throughout the entire process, taking the time to explain everything in non-attorney speak. He took care of the work quickly and efficiently. He is professional, yet relatable, and it was a relief to work with an attorney with whom I can have a normal conversation. I have no doubt the work he did is high-quality and I rest better at night knowing my family is taken care of should anything happen.

Brian was a great help!
Brian recently helped my husband and I with a complicated closing situation. He was very reliable and helpful. He kept us fully informed of all the moving parts and made the process feel simple for us. I would definitely recommend Brian to others.

Honest, knowledgeable, and Diligent
Brian is one of the most knowledgeable real estate attorneys I have had the pleasure of working with. Being an attorney myself, and also owning a real estate company, I have come across countless attorneys (especially those in real estate), and Brian is my "go-to" guy. He has always been thorough, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable on all of my transactions. I have heard nothing but glowing reviews about Brian after my real estate clients have had the pleasure of working with Brian. His ability to communicate and guide a home buyer or seller through a transaction is exceptional. Thank you Brian for all of your hard work and helping so many of my clients purchase their homes.

Highly Regarded Colleague
Brian is my "go to" guy for all complex real estate matters. Brian can always be counted on for an intelligent, creative, and prompt response to both clients and colleagues alike.

Professional service, high integrity
Brian assisted my wife and I in purchasing our first home. Throughout the buying process, from attorney review to the closing, Brian did an excellent job keeping us informed. From start to finish, Brian was prompt in getting back to us with answers to questions we had. During the closing, Brian gave a thorough explanation of each legal document we were required to sign which put our minds at ease. We would recommend Brian because he does quality legal work while conducting his business with the highest level of integrity.

Happy Clients
Brian was great. We needed some real estate help and Brian walked us through the process. He answered all our questions and made us feel comfortable with the whole process. Time was important to us, and Brian was efficient and responsive to our needs.

Good Attorney
Brian is an outstanding attorney who has met my real estate legal needs multiple times. Brian has provided excellent service including residential and commercial real estate closings, lease reviews, and general real estate legal advice.
Posted by Andy | May 18, 2015
Great legal advice
Brian acted as the legal representation on the closing of our first home. He was instrumental in helping to alleviate a situation that would have cost us unnecessary time and money. Brian was a pleasure to work with and someone we trust with the future legal matters of our family.
Posted by Joel | May 15, 2015
Highly recommended!
Brian served as our attorney when we first purchased our house almost two years ago as well as recently during our refinance. He's very attentive and did a great job of explaining the entire process to us. Even though you don't really need a lawyer for a refinance, he had no problem helping with whatever paperwork we needed or questions we had. I can certainly say we wouldn't have been able to get through either of those times without his guidance. I highly recommend Brian Gryll!

First-rate lawyer
Brian is a consummate professional and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He's helped me a number of real estate transactions and always does an outstanding job. His knowledge of real estate law is comprehensive and first rate. Could not recommend him higher.
Posted by anonymous | May 15, 2015
A++ Rating!
Brian has handled my real estate leases for the last 3 years. Not only does he do a great job of responding and keeping me informed but he gives the feeling that I'm his only client. Which certainly isn't the case because I'm just a small fish in a big pond. He has gone above and beyond keeping me protected in lease signings.

Excellent Attorney with Great Service
I've retained Brian for several things; sale of a business, sale of a home, purchase of a new home, investment in a new entity and just random legal advice. He is very accommodating and knowledgeable in his field of work (business and real estate). Brian is also very responsive, unlike many other attorneys I've retained. He responds to emails off hours, although the one thing I didn't have was his cell number, which I always had for other attorneys, but that's a good thing for him! My biggest case was the sale of my business. It was very complex and different than the typical sale of a business. It went from a stock purchase sale to an asset sale with many side agreements and changes. It was a like a growing baby that kept changing and when you think you mastered the plan, it changed again! Brian did a great job making sure I was covered on all ends and wouldn't get screwed over. What I really appreciated about Brian, and I know everyone else will, is that he does not send itemized bills that say .30/hour spent on emails which bears a charge of $88.50. Those attorneys are not the ones I have on speed dial. And Brian was even generous enough to do the closing of the purchase of my home free of charge because of all the business I gave him. He knows how to show his clients appreciation, which is also rare, and he shows it where it counts...in their checkbook. I don't need little gifts with their logos, we all prefer money, and he knows that! In conclusion, I highly recommend using Brian. I know he will be the attorney I call for my next business or real estate transaction or even just random questions. I actually have him on speed dial!

I have used Brian for several of my closings. He is fantastic and walked me through every detail of the closing from start to finish. He is thorough and professional and i would always recommend him to future friends looking for the best in his field.
