I have never dealt with a company or firm with the professionalism and care that Brian gave my son and I. This case was against a big insurance company and was very complex. Brian and his team weren't intimidated in the least and won the case in a very short amount of time. I called his office many times and never once was I put on hold or asked to leave a message. He even took my call while in the process of boarding a plane at the airport. This kind of dedication and honesty are very rare. If you are in need of a lawyer don't hesitate to call him, the consult is free and I don't believe there is anyone better.

Brian and his legal team were the best council one could receive. They always returned my calls with prompt helpful responses. They went above and beyond to stay in contact with me and help me through my legal proceedings. They are exemplary people and incredible attorneys. I would recommend this law firm for any issue one might be having. Complete 10/10. Hands down the most professional people I have ever worked with.
