The best!
My daughter and I worked extensively with Brian during her very stressful and complicated dissolution of marriage, which began in 2018 and has had a couple of difficult additional chapters to address since that time because of on-going needs and concerns with her children. Brian has an amazing ability to hold huge amounts of information in his head simultaneously for his clients across his busy calendar. We never once felt that he dropped the ball in any manner, which is amazing given the potential for that to have happened. I cannot say enough about his service-oriented approach to providing very sound and knowledgeable legal advice. He was always patient and kind, even when one of us showed signs of wear and tear. I could go on and on. Don't hesitate to consult with and hire Brian Close. I am certain you will be glad you did!

Incredibly gifted and hardworking
Brian is off-the-charts intelligent, I would actually say he is a genius at what he does. He is pleasant to work with and provides great client communication and advice. I can not recommend him enough. Having him as an attorney has helped me to live a happy and peaceful life, and that may not have been possible without his skills in the courtroom and everything that goes into prepping for trial. I am very grateful for his dedication and care with my case.

Brian is excellent
Brian helped me through a rough time in a family matter involving my children. He's spontaneous, on topic and a true advocate to his client. Family disputes can and are very scary. In hindsight, I'm thankful to have had Brian in my corner.

Absolutely recommend.
I am thankful to have found Brian to represent me in my DUI matter. He listened carefully to my situation, answered all my questions and offered solid advice and counsel. He kept me up to date on all proceedings and let me know what to expect at every juncture in the process. He was professional, knowledgeable, and agreeable. He was able to mitigate the case favorably and substantially minimize my penalties for which I am extremely grateful. He understands the courts and how to navigate them. I highly recommend Brian if you find yourself in a similar situation.

Excellent attorney with great efficiency
Brian was a great attorney in representing my divorce case. He was very professional, efficient and had great communication all along the way. His attention to detail and follow up was great. He also went above and beyond making sure that he covered everything. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking representation in divorce and otherwise.

Excellent attorney
Mr. Close was recommended to me by another more senior attorney. I am so happy I took that advice. He is professional, knowledgeable, and wise beyond his years. The outcome of my case was the best I could hope for and I attribute that to his skill.

An excellent lawyer who gets things done
Mr. Close is exceptionally professional and very hard-working. He seemed to care personally about my case and gave me hope when I had none. The end outcome was very nearly the best case scenario and this was entirely due to his efforts.
