Andrew EarlesVice President at Wright Water Engineers, Inc.

I have worked with Brian as an expert witness on several cases where I have provided expert reports and testimony on issues related to drainage and construction defects. Brian is an excellent attorney and takes the time to understand the engineering principals I work with to effectively integrate technical information into his legal strategy. I have observed Brian in action with clients, and he has a friendly and down-to-earth way of explaining complex legal issues to non-lawyers and non-engineers. In addition to these strengths, Brian is a very ethical attorney and a great person to work with.
